Fake photos aren’t just Photoshop. An exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum showcases hundreds of strange and fascinating fakes from the predigital age, including high art, satire, and outright scams. Married photographers Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor are split on how best to create photomontage — he's an old-school darkroom guy, while she's embraced the computer. And the self-described “doom soul/gothic gospel” band Cold Specks plays live in the studio.
