While I am familiar with the expression that "the camera never lies",
the darkroom guy is not the entire problem. Often, in his choice of
framing, the photographer and the darkroom guy often lie, here meaning
changing reality. During the takeover of Tehran by the fundamentalists,
there was a photo in one periodical showing a rather mean looking guy
holding an uzi standing in the street. As a comment on this a rival
periodical showed the entire shot from which it was cropped. In the
full shot, no one noticed the guy with the uzi, traffic looked pretty
much the same as in London. So instead of being a fearful sight, in
London, this guy would just be wierd.

[I know if the uzi was real it would not have been allowed in London]
