Nancy Burson's work from the early 1980s is featured in "After Photoshop" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Nancy Burson’s photograph, “Warhead I,” from 1982 is featured in “After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opened last evening. “Warhead I” is a digital composite of world leaders from the early 1980s weighted in terms of the number of nuclear warheads owned by each person’s country at that time: Reagan 55%, Brezhnev 45%, Thatcher less than 1%, Mitterand less than 1%, Deng less than 1%.
