Is Photography Fake?

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

I am sad. All the beautiful photos that make me love photography are fake. The photographer staged them all. Is photography fake?

Well, I wouldn’t call it “fake”.

I myself have a few photoprojects concerning homeless people and poverty. I would not go shoot true homeless people or pay them to act the way I want them to for my shoot. I’d ask for my friends to help me do the scene.
