And In Case You're Wondering What They All Look Like...

By Ben Trott

New York Times magazine photographer, Nadav Kander, has taken 52 portrait photographs of Obama's top advisors. The photographs are beautifully shot, and are of a collection of individuals who will clearly be playing important roles in policy making over the next few years. So, if you are curious about what they look like, you can find the photos here. They will also be published in Sunday's edition of the New York Times magazine.

In other photographic news...

I know that Obama's face is probably now one of the most widely recognised in the world, and that you probably do not need to refresh your memory. Nevertheless, I thought I would point out that the transition team have just released the 'official portrait' of the president-elect.

Michael Shaw, publisher of the BAGnewsNotes blog, has issued an invitation, on the Huffington Post, to discuss the portrait. In his profile, he describes his blog, 'The BAG', as offering 'a daily semiotic analysis of news and political images from a political, cultural or psychological point of view, and is also a platform for original social photography and photojournalism.'
