Connections: Is It Ok to Manipulate a Photograph?


When is it okay for a photojournalist to manipulate a photograph, and how? A new exhibit shows dozens of famous photographs that were altered before publication. We'll talk to veterans in the field about whether they edit, and how they decide what's appropriate. Our guests:

  • Max Schulte, Democrat & Chronicle Lead Photographer
  • William Snyder, award-winning photojournalist and RIT professor
  • Loret Steinberg, RIT professor of photojournalism ethics
