Brush It In

26 October 2012 - 5 January 2013


Brush it in is a colloquial expression for a wide variety of alterations made to digital photographs after their creation.

As digital image making became ubiquitous within popular culture so did the awareness that these digital tools often had more power for deception than the photographic act itself.
