To celebrate the groundbreaking show (and corresponding catalogue) on photo manipulation and visual trickery prior to the digital age, which is currently at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (until January 27th), I thought it would be well to share examples from the inventory of photo collectors which highlight this fascinating area of photography.  The show at the Met is entitled Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop and was conceived and curated by Mia Fineman of the museum’s photography department.  The show will travel next to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C (February 17–May 5, 2013).  It's final stop will be the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston this summer.
