Whence Veracity: can photographs be trusted?


This book examines how well photographs—both traditional and digital—can be relied upon to be truthful renditions of the external world. It traces the historical rise and fall of photography’s veracity by exploring the thoughts of pioneering practitioners from their writings. It explores the characteristics of photographs that might aid or preclude veracity, and outlines the factors that gave rise to and continue to assist a belief in high veracity, and it draws conclusions as to the significance of these beliefs in the twenty-first-century setting.
The final chapter looks at how digital images have influenced photography's veracity. It examines the outcomes of manipulating or enhancing images and briefly predicts the future of photography.
