Believing Is Seeing: Observations on the Mysteries of Photography

Believing is Seeing: Observations on the Mysteries of Photography - Errol Morris We tend to believe that "seeing is believing." In this important book, Photographer Errol Morris uses some well known photographs to show that, Photoshop or not, photographs can and do mislead. Not just because the photographer intended to deceive, which sometimes happens, but often because context is needed to understand what the photograph is actually saying. Everyone should at least skim this book. It's an important contribution to visual literacy.
