Abstract:

While news pictures have been dubbed “the daily butter, if not the bread, of newspapers and magazines,” there remains a void in critical literature analyzing the precise role of visual imagery in framing persons, places, and events within a particular social context. This paper, analyzing the front pages of The New York Times, print media’s paradigm of stylistic conservatism, is an attempt to fill this void. In the process of categorizing the content of the visuals printed on the Times’s front pages between 1945 and 2000, a story of national transformation has been uncovered. During the post-World War II era, visual imagery served as a reflection of the dominant climate—acutely influenced by the technological, political, and cultural transfiguration America was undergoing at the time. Photography was a visual manifestation of a national phenomenon.

Introduction Culture according to Stuart Hall is about `shared meanings’—meanings which Clifford Geertz asserts are “embodied in symbols a system of inherited conceptions expressed in symbolic forms by means of which men communicate perpetuate and develop their knowledge about and attitudes toward 1 life.” Providing a forum in which meaning can be produced and disseminated language is the lynchpin of culture.
