Nobody Wins New York Times ‘Year in Pictures’ Bakeoff

As you might (or more likely might not) remember, for the past several years the hardlooking staff has provided all you splendid readers with a scorecard of the New York Times “Year in Pictures” wrap-up.

Previous winners: Tyler Hicks in 2015 and 2009, Daniel Berehulak in 2014, and Sergey Ponomarev in 2013.

The Times 2016 Year in Pictures, however, produced a low-level tie between Damon Winter and Todd Heisler, both of whom had three photos in the year-end photo album.

Fittingly, Winter gets the front page:

And Heisler gets the back page:

Props also to Tomas Munita, Landon Nordeman, and Doug Mills, who came in a close second with two photos each.

Which says what?

Just this: Visually, the Times is more wide-ranging than ever.

And all the better for it.

    I loved reading Liz Spayd’s column the other day of the Times’ posting of the murder of the Russian Ambassador in Turkey.

    What a kerfuffle. The snowflakes didn’t get their trigger warning, and they were most upset.
