The New York Times Magazine Photographs Summary

The New York Times Magazine Photographs by Kathy Ryan

For over 30 years, The New York Times Magazine has been synonymous with the myriad possibilities and applications of photography. The New York Times Magazine: Photographs reflects upon and interrogates the very nature of both photography and print magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. Edited by Kathy Ryan, longtime photo editor of the Magazine, and with a preface by former editorial director Gerald Marzorati, this volume presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide in four sections: reportage, portraiture, style and conceptual photography, including photo illustration. Diverse in content and sensibility, and consistent in virtuosity, the photographs are accompanied by reproduced tear sheets to allow for the examination of sequencing and the interplay between text and image, simultaneously presenting the work while illuminating its distillation to magazine form. This process is explored further through texts offering behind-the-scenes perspective and anecdotes by the many photographers, writers, editors and other collaborators whose voices have been a part of the magazine over the years. Issues of documentary photography are addressed in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of storytelling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful or a tool for advocacy; as well as thoughts on whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever. As such, The New York Times Magazine: Photographs serves as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.

The New York Times Magazine Photographs Reviews

Easily one of the most impressive photography books of the year--Rebecca HorneThe Wall Street Journal (12/05/2011)
Every photograph stops time. This is the most banal, technical fact about the medium and also the source of its uncanny and remarkably durable power. The relentless momentum of mundane existence is stilled by the shutter, and some of the mysteries implicit in everyday life open up. A moment - of high artifice or raw candor, of posed elegance or composed chaos - is captured and then, later, delivered to our contemplative gaze...Thousands of photographs have appeared in the magazine. More than 250 of them - revealing portraits of the famous; documents of atrocity and heroism; sensitive studies of everyday life; unclassifiable works of art - have been collected into a book, The New York Times Magazine Photographs, edited by the magazine's director of photography, Kathy Ryan...--A.O. ScottThe New York Times Magazine (08/23/2011)
