Someone posted on my weblog the following: "we all know that the subject controls exactly how the photograph turns out. In fact, usually people being photographed for the New York Times get to choose which picture they want used, so that the most flattering and appealing picture is published!" That seems unlikely. The idea that the pictures are flattering is absurd. Granted that most people hate their photos (just ask them about the ones on their passports or drivers' licenses), these seem clearly designed to make the subjects appear unsympathetic.

Wow. This looks like an audition tape for an Ed Wood movie. Southern newspapers used to do this kind of thing back in the 1950s when they ran sinister and scary looking photos of black civil rights activists.
