How to cite evidence for photos and audio?
 
This has 2 parts-
What constitutes evidence that a photo or audio file (media files) contains what it is claimed to contain?
e.g. How do we know that a photo shows who we claim it shows and how do we claim to known when and where it was taken.
 
Where in RM does one place the citations to the sources for media files? 
There are a number of possible ways to link media files in RM.

1. Whatever can be found that determines/evidences the provenance of the article/image/document etc. - https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Provenance

 

2. The most logical placement, in my opinion, would be in the Media Record (Properties - Description), which also allows you to record any outstanding concerns about the provenance of the Media, but others may suggest alternative options.
