Assignment 1-151mc- NYTimes – Article on photo manipulation


I found this interesting article from July 2012  in the New York Times online edition. It talks about the use of manipulation within the media industry , and I found it to be largely in defense of the practice. “There is an impulse I’ve seen over the last several years to improve on reality,” quotes David Granger, the editor in chief of Esquire.  This impulse, in my opinion has led to it being expected that images are adjusted , but in doing so creates a new reality.
