Photoshop 1.0 was released in 1990, ushering in a new age of tampering with photography. Yet the history of manipulated photos stretches back over a century before the dawn of Adobe’s software. The Metropolitan Museum of Art will explore this widely uncharted narrative with “Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop,” an exhibition comprised of 200 photographs taken between the 1840s and 1990s. Some photographs are manipulated to reach a higher form of truth, others to lie, while many revel in the space in between.
