Welcome to Chatting the Pictures. Every two weeks, we present a short, lively video discussion between Michael Shaw, publisher of Reading the Pictures, and writer, professor, and historian, Cara Finnegan, examining a significant picture in the news. Chatting the Pictures is produced by Liliana Michelena.
This photo was taken by Drew Angerer for Getty Images. In it, we see Xiao Qi Ji, a nine-month panda cub, climbing a tree at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington D.C. on May 20, 2021. In the video, we discuss why one version of a picture gets chosen by editors over others; why certain photos find their way into more “photo of the week” slideshows; and how this picture resonates as much with pandemic recovery as international politics.
You can find all the Chatting the Pictures replays here.
