Film rolls are now gone into pages of history of photography. Photographer Steve McCurry was given the last production film roll and he took some iconic photographs to mark the end of film rolls.

This is the last image that he took from this roll.

A photograph, is it true or false?

A very interesting essay by Errol Morris about the truth/false-hood of a photography. Very eloquently summarized by him…

——

Image from NYtimes

The idea that photographs hand us an objective piece of reality, that they by themselves provide us with the truth, is an idea that has been with us since the beginnings of photography. But photographs are neither true nor false in and of themselves. They are only true or false with respect to statements that we make about them or the questions that we might ask of them.

The photograph doesn’t give me answers. A lot of additional investigation could provide those answers, but who has time for that?

Pictures may be worth a thousand words, but there are two words that you can never apply to them: “true” and “false.”
