Join us for a webinar exploring the history of faked photographs.

Kodak created a prototype for the first digital camera in 1975, and over the next 40 years digital imaging became ubiquitous. While we often associate “faked” visuals with digital processes, photographs have in fact been altered since the advent of the medium in the mid 19th century. Please join us for a webinar discussing the history of altered images from the early days of photography until present, motivations behind “faking” images, and new directions for contemporary altered imagery.

This webinar is scheduled for Thursday, November 9th at 3:00 PM ET. Sign up here!
