There They Go Again: Saturday’s Installment of the NYTimes’ Kerry Campaign Photo Coverage

Here’s my mark-up of the latest NYTimes Kerry shot (Saturday’s paper –page A11).

I give them credit for finally including a group of people in a photo of Kerry. However, the fact these people are isolated in the background; the secret service guys bear no personal connection to the candidate; the mysterious hand is getting no attention; and Kerry is looking off in the distance reinforces (once again) the impression of Kerry as detached, narcissistic and out of touch.
