Convention Storybook

The New York Times has assembled a “Convention Storybook,” an online archive of the conventions. It is a look inside the two parties as they sought to articulate their platforms and positions as clearly as possible, without interference. The “Convention Storybook” presents photographs by Stephen Crowley, Josh Haner, Todd Heisler, Doug Mills, Damon Winter, Mike Appleton, Travis Dove, Edward Linsmier, Luke Sharrett, Robert Stolarik, Max Whitaker and Jim Wilson. Michael Barbaro provided audio and it was produced by Nick Corasaniti, Jacqueline Myint and Cornelius Schmid
