One of my sunday morning rituals is to check out the NYT’s Magazine for exciting images. Like many photographers, I consider the Sunday Magazine to be one of the ultimate editorial publications. The photography is always right on thanks to Kathy Ryan and her staff. What I appreciate about the magazine is that they hire both established and emerging photographers. This weeks cover image was shot by Steve Stenze. On Steve’s blog I found a very interesting post titled “Anatomy of a New York Times Magazine Cover Photo.” As you will see, the amount of time and energy spent is enormous. Steve must be happy with his effort as he embraces his image on this weeks cover. Well done Steve!
