The uncertain status of Images in Digital Age


Julián Echazarreta-Carrión


The Digital Age has arrived and that supposes that we are living a very important revolution in our societies. Since XIX Century, the photographic image has had an important value as a proof of the reality. We have always believed the veracity of what those pictures represented (of course, being aware of the possibility of be manipulated in some specific circumstances), but with digital technology this manipulation has become quite easier, as the same system facilities this manipulation. This supposes that all of us as spectators must be very suspicious of the digital images.
