Where I live.
The boundary between photography and graphic art is flexible and often indistinct.
There is much discussion about photographs being “over Photoshopped” and losing their function as accurate representations.
Quite properly, the rules governing press photo awards bar any alteration of the image.

And this must be achieved by the image itself, without benefit of an illustrative essay. So I manipulate the image exactly as I once did in the darkroom, but a thousand times quicker and with infinitely more fine control.
