More "Power"

…Or, is that “male” power?

Returning to this past week’s New Yorker “Portraits of Power” photo spread (given that world leaders will be doing another meet-up soon at the Denmark climate conference), here’s more editing and layout fun from the print edition.

On this facing spread (pg. 72-3), we encounter Italy’s lech Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, sporting an all-too-charmed smile, juxtaposed for some reason with the attractive Cristina Fernandez, the President of Argentina, in a head-to-thigh portrait with her hands clasped just so.
