Kander's Obama's People
The NY Times commissioned photographer Nadav Kander to take photographs of members of the incoming Obama administration. The 52-photo portfolio will run in the Sunday Times Magazine, but it's online now.
• There're all the same picture, just with different people in it.
• If you're going to have Kander take your picture, wear dark pants or get your suit pressed. If you're a woman, don't let Kander take your picture.
Update: The NY Times has been whining that Obama has not given them a special sit-down interview, as has been "traditional" with incoming Presidents. Looking at these pictures, I think we now know why.
