Description

Brassey's had another bite of this subject with the 1999 Photo Fakery: The History and Techniques of Photographic Deception and Manipulation, by ex-CIA photo analyst Dino Brugioni. Oddly Alain Jaubert isn't mentioned in the index and David King only has one mention.

The original French edition was published in 1986 by Editions Barrault and the copy I have was published by Brassey's in 1989 for their Intelligence and National Security Library series. It really visually reveals a well-trodden path of photo manipulation/censorship by repressive governments over the past several decades.

The problem I have with the book is that the quality of the photo content (which is basically most of it) is so poor. With before and after pretty much looking the same the actual mechanics of removing or retouching people and objects couldn't have been too hard. Also many of the photos have been altered for cosmetic reasons and not necessarily to falsify history. A good example of the latter though (and now quite famous) is on page 136 with a shot from Prague in front of the Saint Vitus Church, March 1968, showing Alexander Dubcek, the General Secretary of the Communist Party, Josef Smrkovsky and Ludvik Svoboda. The Prague Spring failed with Soviet tanks rolling into Czechoslovakia and by 1969 Dubcek was a non-person and had to be removed from this photo, done reasonably well, too.

Visually the book is rather scrappy and this was brought home to me when compared to David King's fascinating The Commissar Vanishes : The Falsification of Photographs and Art in Stalin's Russia . This beautifully designed book only looks at the falsification of photos and art in the old Soviet Union but there are several photos that appear in both books and King's title is a much more thought provoking version.

Brassey's had another bite of this subject with the 1999 Photo Fakery: The History and Techniques of Photographic Deception and Manipulation, by ex-CIA photo analyst Dino Brugioni. Oddly Alain Jaubert isn't mentioned in the index and David King only has one mention.

This book was fascinating to me because I never realized the photo montage parlor tricks of the 30s were being used by world governments to rewrite their revolutionary histories. Although there are no examples of photo manipulation by the United States government, no doubt they have likewise participated in photo deceptions at times during out own great history. In fact, the careful positioning and staging of all photos taken of Roosevelt are a perfect example of content manipulation to disguise the fact he was in a wheelchair.

I loved the side by side comparisons in the book that show the original photo and the various "doctored" versions that have appeared (and disappeared) over time in history books and museums.

An excellent book which uncovers the use of retuching to produce propaganda images. It covers the Soviet Union, the Eastern Bloc, China, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Castro's Cuba.
It will be an eyeopener for many naive people.
