Manipulated Photography

OberthalerF 145132 1

This small installation of 10 works from the MFAH photography collection continues the conversation started by the major exhibition Faking It: Manipulated Photography before Photoshop.

Although photographers have long used manual techniques to alter their images, digital cameras and software applications such as Adobe Photoshop have made this process quicker, easier, and more accessible than ever before.

Whereas Faking It reveals the ways in which photographers — from the 1840s to 1990s — used the tools of their day to manipulate images, After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age explores how artists use digital technology to alter photographic images in the 21st century.

* This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
