Photography can accurately record people, places and events, as they really were — the good, the bad and the ugly.
Unlike writing, painting or the spoken word which can be a total figment of imagination, a photograph must by its very nature have at its core an element of truth.
People are inclined to believe what they see more so than what they hear or read. In this digital age it's generally assumed that some tweaking of recorded images for aesthetics or effect has taken place.
We have an obligation to be forthright concerning whether images have been manipulated so as to portray an event in any way other than as it actually happened.
