The New York Times page one pictures

Between January 2000 and August 2007 The New York Times published sixty-four articles dealing with HIV that began on page one and had photographs accompanying them. Often those photographs were on the inside pages where the article concluded. Notably, thirty-two of these front-page articles had photographs that were also on page one.

Front-page photographs, by virtue of their placement, are deemed to best represent the visualization of HIV/AIDS by photojournalism. The report – a see Section 5(e) – analyzes these photographs in terms of the identities pictured in the photographs and the subject and/or setting of the photograph. The twenty-eight available page one pictures are displayed in the slideshow here.
