11 Famous Photos That Were Believed To Be True And Turned Out To Be Fake

Although the web world is vast and rich in useful information, you have to know how to sort it out. Not all sites are trusted and not all of the photos we see are real. Many of them are clearly photomontages, and some are more difficult to identify than others and mislead even the most “experienced”. In any case, always verify a source before considering it reliable. In recent years, it has happened on several occasions that a photo reaches millions of Internet users, goes viral, then is “unmasked” as false. Here are some of the most famous.
