Mar 9, 2018Fake. Real. Accurate. True. They’re the keywords in any
debate about representation, the sticky wicket famously represented
by Belgian surrealist René Magritte in his painting The
Treachery of Images (1929): a flat, cartoonish depiction of a
tobacco pipe squats atop the deliciously polemical fiat “This is
not a pipe.” In this episode, Mark Johnson, from the University of
Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism, walks us through the process
of representing a news story with a photograph, and Brian recalls
the image of President Trump tossing rolls of paper towels to a
crowd in Puerto Rico last October. This episode features the song
“Oktoberfest Gaudi” by Steve Raphael. The episode illustration
(Sharpie on paper towel) was drawn by Barbara Worth Ratner.×About the Podcast
