The exhibition "Photography Never Lies" exhibits the 13 international artists’ photographic works that challenge the belief that Photography is a tool that most straightforwardly reflects reality and various possibilities. Creating truths essential in telling stories in news, education, and history. Even the judicial process uses photographs to reach resolutions in many matters. In the fact that the process before becomes a photograph, it is a complex intertwined of ideas, myths, algorithms, and mechanisms that contribute to its creation. Selecting a particular photograph is a nuanced process, far from the simplicity many assume. This complicated process raises questions about the truthfulness of the images we observe daily. Can they still reflect reality as they once did? What is the nature of this truth? And whose truth does it conform to?

Today, with the power of artificial intelligence and technological advances faster than we can imagine, new possibilities and unlimited accessibility to knowledge are initiated. This unprecedented reshaping, more efficient than humans, is transforming every part of society. Some photography artists have embraced these technological advancements, while others continue to use traditional photographic art processes. This Exhibition allows us to think about what is being conveyed. It raises questions about whether we can still believe in what we see and how we should handle the manipulation of historical data or legal principles that are being challenged and negotiated for the future that lies ahead.
