I love photoshop as much as the next person, but in my heart of hearts, I miss the old photography, where what you saw was a record of what happened. Now, it is too easy to make the outlandish feasible. Gullible minds (and the US seems to have an abundance of them) believe what they see. Dennis McFarland in his novel, "School for the Blind" has a character say, "'things happen, and then you have to make sense of them.' That he explained is what a photograph is all about --'it stops things, freezes things so you can think about the implications, so you can contemplate the ramifications.'" There is no doubt that computers have altered the landscape. I'm not saying I don't like the new art form of photography, just that I miss the un-doctored certainty. The above is the jacket photo of my father and two chimps for the book "Animal IQ" from 1950. I was two at the time, but I assume the chimps were real.
