NY Times Magazine does Multimedia
It’s by no means the first of its kind but Ashley Gilbertson‘s imagery and the words of Joel Lovell in their story, A Game of Shark and Minnow, published in The New York Times Magazine this weekend, is certainly a piece of journalism that lifts the bar.
What’s most satisfying though, is that the slick but user-friendly production by Mike Bostock, Clinton Cargill, Shan Carter, Nancy Donaldson,Tom Giratikanon, Xaquin G.V., Steve Maing and Derek Watkins, doesn’t overshadow the quite incredible story itself with digital trickery. Instead, the presentation and production lifts the story.
The desktop and tablet version of the story vary slightly with the desktop version incorporating video as well as stills.
While the photography can’t be criticised, one can’t help but feel that the edit is somewhat literal and without latitude for the other exceptional photographs that Gilbertson would doubtless have made during his 20 days on the assignment.
