The New York Times has launched its new photography showcase on its website. It’s calls Lens,and it features portfolios and behind-the-scenes videos from a host of the newspaper’s photographers. As regular readers of State of the Art will have noticed by now, I’m a big fan of the photography from the Times, so I’m pretty happy to see this new blog. You really have to check out Stephen Crowley’s video piece on Oval Office photo ops. It’s a sobering looks at how political photojournalism is manufactured. Hurray for Lens.–David Schonauer
