This installation explores various ways in which artists\, i ncluding Nancy Burson\, Filip Dujardin\, Joan Fontcuberta\, Beate Gütschow\ , and others\, have used digital technology to alter the photographic image from the 1980s to the present. Featuring approximately twenty-five works d rawn from the permanent collection\, it serves as an addendum to the specia l exhibition Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop.< /p>\n

Over the past twenty years\, photography has undergone a dramatic t ransformation. Mechanical cameras and silver-based film have been replaced by electronic image sensors and microchips. Instead of shuffling through pi les of glossy prints\, we stare at the glowing screens of laptops\, tablets \, and mobile phones. Negative enlargers and chemical darkrooms have given way to personal computers and image-processing software. Photographers have always used manual techniques to alter their images\, but digital cameras and applications such as Adobe Photoshop have made the process quicker\, ea sier\, and more accessible to many more people—both amateurs and profession als—than ever before.

\n

Today\, the manipulation of photographic imag es is ubiquitous—in magazines and advertising\, in police work and medical imaging\, and increasingly in the snapshots of vacations\, weddings\, and g raduations that we email to friends and family and upload to social-network ing websites. It is not surprising that artists have seized upon these new tools to realize their visions and to spur reflection on the medium's past\ , present\, and future. This exhibition presents a selection of photographs and video in which artists have used digital technology to modify and tran sform the camera image or\, in some cases\, to generate convincingly realis tic photographs with no real-world counterparts. Whether imagining alternat e realities\, reinterpreting classic works of art\, or exuberantly defying the laws of gravity\, these artists and others are pointing the way toward a new conception of photography as a malleable medium with an exquisitely c omplex relationship to visual truth.
