Hey, we’re back with another news photo chat! Watch RTP publisher Michael Shaw and Salon host, Cara Finnegan, riff for 20 minutes or so about three headline photos. This week, we looked at a tawdry shot from Trump International by AFP Photo’s Saul Loeb; a powerful image from the Super Bowl by Chris Wattie of Reuters Pictures; and a viral brand image that rocked the news, social and marketing universe, the Starman from SpaceX. We encourage your comments on the pix and feedback on our own launch of this regular feature. Chatting the Pictures is a shortened, mostly weekly edition of the Reading the Pictures Salon.
