Name, first nameLaura ZoccaratoYear of birth1990UniversityECALField of Interest / research fieldArt Direction in Typography / in Photography Title of projectThe History of Photo-manipulationAbstractThe History of Photo-manipulation and its role contemporary art Photography.

The manipulation of pictures is not only used in advertising and fashion. It has his roots in nearly every field of photography. Nor it is a recent phenomenon. It was practiced long before Adobe Photoshop was invented, and long before the digital era.
In my thesis I want to discover the history of this practice, and the diverse reasons for its utilization.
Many big changes have occured in Photography in the last years. Contemporary Photography has never been so experimenting and open minded. Many artists are not documenting the reality any more, but trying to interpret it or make a statement. This they often do with Image manipultaion. In further chapters of my research I want to present some photographers that use Photoshop and describe their work.
