Gray stuff around photography

Erstwhile Primedia employee David Carr examines magazine publishing in the “postliterate” era in today’s New York Times.


The assumption is that readers raised on a media diet in which they are presented with a new image every few tenths of a second are not about to wait 3,400 words for the upshot. The glossy publishing industry will continue to serve as the back fence for mass culture. But in these days of postliterate publishing, few in the neighborhood seem to have time to stop and tell stories.
