It is a shame really, the first piece in the NY Times Lensblog that I have liked in a long time turns out to be not quite real.
Carlo Bevilacqua composited some of the stronger pictures in Photoshop. That means he made them up. Took elements from different photographs and combined them. The real tragedy is that the body of work did not need the fakes. Once someone starts making photographs up, the entire project is suspect. Remember, the only thing you have as a photojournalist is your reputation. It is not worth putting it on the line because you don't have the picture you want.
I'd like to thank Bernard van Dierendonck for pointing this out.
