Doctored photos

We’ve just been discussing Stalin’s habit of doctoring photographs when I came across this online.

not only is it a funny image and useful for introducing the idea of reliability of photos (as do the series here) but it shows just how powerful photoshop is and how every image from 2000 onward will have to be treated with huge scepticism by future historians, making the teaching of provenance analysis and reliability all the more important.
