Fauxtography – Manipulation of Images and The Ethical Dimensions of Photography

James K. Colton’s program will center around the manipulation of images throughout history, focusing on the consequences and the impact alteration has on perceived truth.

He will highlight egregious examples of deception found in published photography, both historic and current, and examine the threshold of acceptable practices in post-production. A thorough discussion through a Questions and Answers period will follow the presentation.

Colton recently left Sports Illustrated after 15 years as their Photography Editor and is currently a writer and educator. He began his career in 1972 at the Associated Press. Five years later he joined Newsweek and became their Director of Photography. He was the Jury Chairman for the World Press Photo contest in 2005, received an International Photography Awards “Lucie” for Picture Editor of the Year in 2007, was the recipient of the “Focus” award for Lifetime Achievement by the Griffin Museum in 2010 and has been acknowledged as one of the 100 most important people in photography by American Photo.
