The greatest album covers of jazz

Blue Note captured the refined sophistication of jazz during the early 60s, giving it its signature look in the process.

yeah that is dynamite. One of the things
that amazed me was what I call the
pullback effect. Take Hank Mobley’s no
room for squares. There was a new subway
station that was built. It was unlike any
other subway stop. It had these metal
concentric circles. Now try to find the
final album cover there. It is the
pullback shows you the whole image and
it gives you an insight into the eye of
the designer that I think is absolutely
amazing

Propaganda or news: Should media publish government’s child-detention photos?

All of the photographs depicting life inside the facilities have been supplied by the government itself. There’s been no independent documentation; federal officials, citing the children’s privacy, have barred journalists from taking photographs or video when they’ve been permitted inside.

.. “We thought it was a bad precedent to accept government handout photos when [photojournalists aren’t] allowed in,”

.. The few journalists who have gotten access to the facilities have suggested the government’s image-making is distorted, at best.

.. Jacob Soboroff, an MSNBC reporter who visited the McAllen center, said what he saw inside was “shocking,” though Soboroff had no pictures to back up this impression.

.. He described children “locked up in cages essentially, what look like animal kennels.” But even his eyewitness account had limitations. Soboroff noted that officials asked him not to talk to people inside the center, thus keeping their experiences in the dark.

.. formally protested the Obama White House’s restrictions on photojournalists in 2013. The organization said the White House routinely excluded news photographers from important events involving the president, and then issued its own photos taken by an official White House photographer.

“You are, in effect, replacing independent journalism with visual press releases,”
