Photography has this unique way of presenting reality. We believe what is shown to us, because unlike painting, drawing, etc. photography represents the world 1:1. There is a level of truthfulness and believability to a photo. The facade of a construction site simulates a lush forest, but fails to conceal what is being constructed.
