Errol Morris, Truth & Photography

I recently wrote a post on Savage Minds about NY Times photographer Damon Winter, who stirred up some controversy when he used the "hipstamatic" app on his iPhone to create a photo-essay about US troops in Iraq.  Some people felt that his use of the app put the authenticity or veracity of his images into question--others argued that photography is always about making certain stylistic, technical, and editorial choices.  

So, to keep the discussion about truth and photography going for a bit, check out this NPR piece called "Errol Morris looks for truth outside photographs."
