Yevgeny Khaldei‘s photographs of Raising a flag over the Reichstag. 2 May 1945.
Do you know anything about photo-editing and forgery during the second world war? I know about some famous ones, such as the removal of watches from a couple of soviet war photographs, but surely there must be a lot more edits and forgeries from such a brutal ideologically fuelled conflict. There was obviously a lot of staging for propaganda purposes, but I've never seen much information about photo manipulation. Have you come across anything enlightening on this subject during your research?
