Happy New Year. This week, our #NYTReadalong guest is Tanner Curtis, photo editor at The New York Times. He’s an editor for the Styles section and served as co-editor for the 2022 Year in Pictures. The Year in Pictures was in the January 1st print edition of the Sunday New York Times. Neil Parekh will be the guest host.
The Year in Pictures
From The Story Behind the Story, written by Terence McGinley:
"In September, The New York Times’s photo editors Jeffrey Henson Scales and Tanner Curtis broke from their regular jobs to work on the Year in Pictures, a review of news photography that The Times publishes every year. Photographers with The Times file 10,000 to 15,000 pictures a month. Mr. Scales and Mr. Curtis looked at nearly all of them. Going one quarter of the year at a time, they pulled 500 to 700 pictures for each month. Then they culled those groups down to 100. “That’s when the hardest part starts,” Mr. Curtis said. 'You have to think about which news events are important, which pictures are most important, which pictures are most interesting, which pictures are most representative of The New York Times’s body of work.'"
In addition to the Year in Pictures, we’ll also get Tanner’s insights on this week’s Styles section.
