‘The New York Times’ Runs An Instagram Photo On Front Page

‘The New York Times’ Runs An Instagram Photo On Front Page:



Last Sunday, The New York Times ran an Instagram image on its front page, a move that stirred up controversy in the photography circle.



The photograph in question features New York Yankees’ third baseman Alex Rodriguez and was taken by photographer Nick Laham a year ago in a locker room bathroom.



While some argue that publishing an Instagram-edited picture on the front page of an influential newspaper threatens traditional photography, others disagree with this fatalistic view.



What do you think—is this refreshing or worrying?
