"In the very beginning, when the operator controls and regulates his time of
exposure, when in the dark room the developer is mixed for detail, breath,
flatness or contrast, faking has been resorted to. In fact every photograph
is a fake from start to finish, a purely impersonal, unmanipulated
photograph being practically impossible. When all is said, it still remains
entirely a matter of degree and ability."
