How much is there to say about “the first still ever taken by an independent photographer during a live presidential address to the nation?”
Impressions of any isolation shot of a president speaking at a podium are necessarily granular. This being the one-out-of-ten available pics the NYT.com chose for tonight’s home page, however, what I notice — and it’s especially peculiar, given the historic relevance here — is that we don’t see Obama actually speaking. (Instead, he looks more focused on how he’s coming across.)
The capture and publication of a photo lacking an oratorical pose, of course, could be purely by chance. Given the intensely parsed and calculated nature of the new Afghanistan policy, however, it’s not surprising, really, the Times would opt for such a meditated-looking Obama not enunciating.
