The author explores the role of the photograph in science, as well as the implicit and explicit biases associated with each use. Analysis of the various forms of manipulation present in Edward Curtis’ photographs serve to illustrate what ramifications implicit and explicit bias can have on both scientific photography and the way in which science is disseminated through photographs. This historical example highlights existing ambiguity within the scientific community regarding the use of the photograph and the pitfalls such ambiguity may generate.
