Photography has been considered as a means to provide objective information ever since its very invention. However, the analysis of history shows that the most popular photos are often the result of forgery.
Zoja’s book discusses eight popular photos: the four photos that depict “warriors” are staged; the other four, which show children oblivious to hidden agendas, look authentic. This analysis anticipates the issue of post-truth, analyses its underlying psychology and provides instruments for understanding it.
