The photograph is A truth not THE truth

Following on from the Lecture on ‘What is a photograph?’, there was mention of the photograph as a truth.

Alison Jackson is a photographer who particularly demonstrates the photograph as A truth rather than THE truth. She takes photographs using look-alikes of celebrities and makes people believe what they see. The photographs are really happening but they are just not completely true in life. But the event did happen just not as we are led to believe.
