A Brief History of Photo Fakery

Photo: David King Collection, London

The New York Times has a slideshow of famous faked photographs, including Abraham Lincoln's head on John Calhoun's body and Stalin's erasure of his enemies. Shown above is the before and after photo manipulation where Nikolai Yezhov, a one-time head of Soviet's secret police NKVD and a central player in Stalin's Great Purge was himself purged - from life and this photograph.
