Portraits of Power

A staff photographer for New Yorker magazine referred to only as Platon set up a studio in the United Nations building this past September to get portraits of as many world leaders as possible. For five days he took photographs of each member of the General Assembly that came to his temporary studio. Those portraits are now posted in slide show form. Click on any of them, and you can hear Platon's story of how he got the picture, and his impressions of each president or prime minister. http://www.newyorker.com/online/multimedia/2009/12/07/091207_audioslideshow_platon -via the Presurfer
