Re: Hockney:

One guy's opinion.

Photography was never the pinnacle of truth that some wish to believe.
Even the great Iwo Jima photo was staged, with people who weren't
there, and it didn't happen the way it was pictured. Other pics of
the great masters have been shown to be posed.

Adams Zone System is all about making a photo better than it
looked "in person" and bringing out details through extensive burning
and dodging.

Jerry Uelsmann "http://www.pdngallery.com/legends/uelsmann/" has been
creating unbelievable images in the darkroom since the 1950s. To say
that the ability to manipulate images signals the death of
photography is ludicrous. It sounds like an artist who takes himself
much too seriously.
