Printables: Is documentary-style photography dead?

nan-goldin-ballad-of-sexual-dependency

Nan Goldin writes in the afterword of the rerelease of The Ballad of Sexual Dependency:

“I am terrified that everything I believe about photography, about this work, is over because of the computer and easy manipulation of images it facilitates. This work was always about reality, the hard truth, and there was never any artifice. I have always believed that my photographs capture a moment that is real, without setting anything up.”

Kate Wolf dissects “photography’s ability to factually represent a certain version of the truth” in the LA Review of Books
