Everyday Practices of Editing the World

(p.160) 4 Newsworld
Image Brokers

Zeynep Devrim Gürsel

This chapter examines editorial decisions concerning photography at major US news magazines at a moment when the magazines still had sizable print subscribers and robust newsstand sales while online versions were just beginning to emerge. Everyday work at Newsworld is about brokering images and reproducing worldviews. Image brokers at Newsworld have to negotiate not only with their colleagues, who are writers and text editors, but also with those in the art department, who negotiate presentation issues such as layout and design. The chapter follows the many layers of negotiation behind a finished issue and highlights the rule of text even in news publications known for visual journalism that serve as points of references for photographers all over the world.

Keywords:   news magazines, Newsworld, image brokers, news publications, visual journalism
