Great stories can be conveyed by images alone. Alan Taylor of the Boston Globe’s weblog, The Big Picture, casts a very intimate portrait in his post, “At Work.” This powerful series captures the environments, faces, and hands of our world’s workers as they toil to meet demands in our global economy.
With its vibrant oversized photographs, the Boston Globe’s The Big Picture weblog launched on June 1 to instant global acclaim. It’s designed, programmed, and written by Alan Taylor, an old-school web programmer and blogger, in his spare time while working on community features at Boston.com. There have been photoblogs using similar formats with images just as large, but not many are acheiving the same as Taylor with multiple high-res photos on a single page around a theme.
