The New York Times Magazine Photographs reflects upon and interrogates the very nature of both photography and print magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. It presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide in various sections, including reportage, portraiture, style, and conceptual photography, and photo illustration.

Editor Kathy Ryan contributes an in-depth history of the magazine’s relationship to photography, contextualizing its contributions within the larger world of magazine work. Also addressed are issues of documentary photography in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of story-telling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful, or a tool for advocacy; as well as thoughts on whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever.

Behind-the-scenes perspectives and anecdotes by many photographers, writers, editors, and other collaborators explore this process further. The New York Times Magazine Photographs aims to serve as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary, and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.
