This is What Happens…. …when you sever the “indexicality” of photography. You get this (in addition to some really bad photography): People Call My Photos Fake… But They’re Not
I find it interesting when people make pictures which look like photoshops, and which would be much easier as photoshops, for which the point appears to be entirely “it looks like a composite, but it’s not”
First of all, we know that quite a few of them actually are composites, because that’s how humans are. We just don’t know how many, or which ones.
Second of all, it appears to be as much performance as anything. Sometimes the goal seems simply to spark the “SHOPPED!” comments purely so they can be denied.
