Photography Transformed examines surveillance photography and the Cuban Missile crisis, searing images from the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights violence-while highlighting the transformation to the new era of image-driven celebrity, presidential "image politics," and the challenge to achieve photographic truth when computers have the ability to alter photography without detection. The film presents a message that is very clear: despite new technologies, still images-whether captured on film or as electrons-will endure
