From Photoshop to Instagram, photo manipulation is commonplace today and something easily done in the digital-era. Faking It: Manipulated Photography Before Photoshop at the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, D.C., is the first major exhibition devoted to the history of manipulated photography before digital imagery.

The exhibit, which runs through May 5, features around 200 photographs from the 1840s through the 1980s.
