Photo editors choose what they print from thousands of images. Their choices affect how big stories such as elections, wars, social upheavals, and crimes are perceived and interpreted. How do they make those choices? What do they leave out? What are the pressures upon them? How do they differ in their approaches? A photography critic discusses the implications with two photo editors and a photo-journalist.
