You go in over your head, not just up to your neck."

About TheVisualTruth.com and the Blog/Journal:

To Whomever asks about this site:

If you've had the opportunity to view the blog/journal you'll quickly notice the page header that states: "Finding truth in photojournalism without gross misuse of Photoshop. Images that stir the soul and maybe even change lives. Here you'll see the photojournalism of Jody Warner." In a nutshell, that's it.

Images appear in editorial publications day after day which are grossly over-manipulated by Photoshop or other image editing mediums. It is my hope that this site and the blog can be an additional beacon for those of us that want to make it in the photojournalism business honestly, without cheating. Like organizers of the Tour De' France and their quest to rid their prestigious race of performance enhancing drugs, I too strive for photojournalistic clarity, honesty and truth. That also might explain why this site is named TheVisualTruth.com instead of being Jody Warner dot whatever-I-could-get.

I follow the code of ethics of the National Press Photographers Association.

Respectfully signed,

Jody Warner
