Think "fake" photos are a product of the digital age and Photoshop? Think again! The Metropolitan Museum of Art has just opened an exhibition entitled "Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop." Interestingly, Adobe helped to fund the exhibition. This promises to be a great show. For those of you with iPads, there is a free App available from iTunes which accompanies the exhibition.
For more information on the exhibition:

The new Lytro digital camera has just been released. It is a point and shoot camera with a twist. The camera works differently from traditional digital cameras. The big twist is that images captured on the Lytro can be manipulated after capture in interesting new ways - most specifically depth of field can be determined and changed after capture. The big downside is that you can't use Photoshop or Lightroom to manipulate the images in this way. You must use the free proprietary software made for the camera. Just when you thought you had all the photo toys you need, along comes another. . .for more info, go to the Lytro website.

A Cindy Sherman retrospective has opened at the Museum of Modern Art just in time for the Department of the Arts trip to NYC! Since the 1970s Sherman has photographed herself in a range of guises - from clowns to damsels in distress. A link to the New York Times review of the exhibition is here. One of her early "Film Stills" images is above along with a photo of the entrance to the exhibition. Not to be missed!!!

The work of Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss is currently featured in a mid career retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In conjunction with the exhibit, 53 billboards in Philadelphia will feature photographs by Strauss. Of the billboards, she states “ The billboards will exhibit photos without text, branding or logos. They effectively eliminate 53 spaces available for commercial advertising. ” This show is not to be missed. For more information, you can follow this link to the PMA website.
