Is Photography Dead?

I do not believe photography is dead because there is too much going on in the art world related to different kinds of photographs. Whether it is straight photography or photos being manipulated to be used in multimedia works, these photos are always changing and progressing into new styles. I will agree however, that the truth in front of a camera lens is slipping away due to software programs like photoshop, but it is up to photographers if they want to keep this idea in there art form.

The question I would like to pose to the class is whether they think photography should be free to express themselves like many other forms of art works or should it be held to the original perception of truth?
