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

The Problem of Washington Photo Coverage Goes Well Beyond Restagings, Stephen Crowley Argues – NYTimes.com

President Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel were clearly of two very different minds about the prospect of Israel reverting to its pre-1967 borders. The official White House photo by Pete Souza — showing the two leaders huddling outside the Oval Office on Friday — didn’t make life easy for picture editors. By releasing this single picture, was the White House trying to convey a sense of comity? Of presidential confidence? Of a deep understanding between president and prime minister? There was no answering these questions, because no journalists witnessed the moment.

On Assignment: Asia in the Blink of an Eye – Lens

President Obama, whose motorcade has been as long as 71 vehicles, is always at least 30 cars ahead of the four-person photo pool trailing him as he tours Asia. I really wanted a whimsical picture of the president as he walked past the “No Smoking” sign in the Forbidden City, but his Chinese police escorts blocked the shot as his entourage swept by.

Lens Blog – NYTimes.com:

Stephen Crowley has just returned from covering President Obama’s trip to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany and France. These tetraptychs convey the round-the-clock cognitive dissonance of such a journey, with its multiple agendas and audiences — “Bilats and Tea,” Mr. Crowley calls it, using the diplomatic jargon for a bilateral talk. He also assembled a verbal scrapbook of impressions, drawn from press communiqués, pool reports and news accounts.

Most days a campaign will put out the same bowl of fruit for us to interpret—accuracy, of course, is paramount—and some will paint it, sculpt it, or wax poetic in the hope of making it more interesting than it looked the day before. But lately, John McCain’s campaign schedule has been as erratic as a gold mine penny stock I’ve been watching.
