Noon Time Collection Talk: Thierry Gervais
The Retouched Photograph
Thursday, March 16, 12 pm

The recent digital revolution and the development of software like Photoshop during the 1990s have raised questions among viewers and readers regarding the integrity of the photographer and the credibility of photojournalism. However, news photographs, before reaching publication, have often been retouched or altered by the human hand.

Join Thierry Gervais, Associate Professor and RIC Head of Research, for an interactive discussion on his long-term research project, which examines how the practice of retouching was an integral part of publishing news images in the analogue era. As Gervais proposes, a new approach to photojournalism must address photographic credibility as a multifaceted creation, not as a mechanical recording of reality.

All Noon Time Collection Talks are free and take place at the Peter Higdon Research Centre, located at 122 Bond Street, room RIC-241.
