"The truth is that anyone can make a photo. The trouble is not that photos are hard to make. The trouble is that photos are hard to make intelligent and interesting." In reference to obvious photomanipulation: Such images may have been art but they weren't photography. "Our faith in the truth of a photograph rests on our belief that the lens is impartial and will draw the subject as it is. This faith may be naive and illusory... but it persists. The photographer's vision convinces us to the degree that the photographer hides his hand."
