A behind-the-scenes look into one of the preeminent venues for photography through the work of more than 130 documentary, portrait and fashion photographers, including Rineke Dijkstra, Sebastiâo Selgado, Ryan McGinley, Lynsey Addario, Lizzie Himmel, Jeff Riedel and Jeff Mermelstein.

"What continues to give such pictures their currency?
I'd answer that the project of magazine photography, today as for the past fifty, sixty years, is to reveal to us that which can only be seen when time is arrested. Photographs--especially great ones published in a journalistic context--slow things down and particularize. They advance onceness. It has been suggested that a photographer's intentions do not necessarily determine the meaning of a photograph. Fair enough. It is nevertheless true that the intention of the editors of the Times Magazine, week in and week out, is to publish, along with our long-form reportage and speculative essays, the kinds of photographs that do not simply document or deliver "news" but--by capturing that light, that gesture, that moment--arrest time, and, then, the eye of the magazine's reader: slow her down, invite him to look, look hard, look again."

Gerald Marzorati, excerpted from the introduction to The New York Times Magazine Photographs.

The New York Times Magazine Photographs

Published by Aperture
Edited by Kathy Ryan. Preface by Gerald Marzorati.

Featured image, by Lee Friedlander, is reproduced from <I>The New York Times Magazine Photographs</I>.For over 30 years, The New York Times Magazine has been synonymous with the myriad possibilities and applications of photography. The New York Times Magazine: Photographs reflects upon and interrogates the very nature of both photography and print magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. Edited by Kathy Ryan, longtime photo editor of the Magazine, and with a preface by former editorial director Gerald Marzorati, this volume presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide in four sections: reportage, portraiture, style and conceptual photography, including photo illustration. Diverse in content and sensibility, and consistent in virtuosity, the photographs are accompanied by reproduced tear sheets to allow for the examination of sequencing and the interplay between text and image, simultaneously presenting the work while illuminating its distillation to magazine form. This process is explored further through texts offering behind-the-scenes perspective and anecdotes by the many photographers, writers, editors and other collaborators whose voices have been a part of the magazine over the years. Issues of documentary photography are addressed in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of storytelling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful or a tool for advocacy; as well as thoughts on whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever. As such, The New York Times Magazine: Photographs serves as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times Magazine

A.O. Scott

Every photograph stops time. This is the most banal, technical fact about the medium and also the source of its uncanny and remarkably durable power. The relentless momentum of mundane existence is stilled by the shutter, and some of the mysteries implicit in everyday life open up. A moment — of high artifice or raw candor, of posed elegance or composed chaos — is captured and then, later, delivered to our contemplative gaze...Thousands of photographs have appeared in the magazine. More than 250 of them — revealing portraits of the famous; documents of atrocity and heroism; sensitive studies of everyday life; unclassifiable works of art — have been collected into a book, “The New York Times Magazine Photographs,” edited by the magazine’s director of photography, Kathy Ryan...

NPR Books

Kathy Ryan

Compiled in an impeccably designed and gorgeously reproduced coffee table book, the photographs commissioned by The New York Times Magazine are a revelation — arguably, the most wide-ranging and accomplished photojournalistic body of work of the past many decades.
