The truth of photography
Nowadays documentary photography and press photos are a hype.
This is, however, the most misleading form of photography there is. The true, dark side of photography is most explicit in documentary photography. In this case the spectator is most susceptible to the manipulative side of photography.
Politicians and regimes are very aware of the power of photography. On the one hand they are scared of the power of photography but on the other hand they use it in the realization of their goals.
