Picture Page vs. Audio SlideShow

September 2, 2007

NYTimes staffer Nicole Bengiveno headed down to Atlanta to do a story on the home foreclosure trauma,where home foreclosures are up 75% over the prevoius month. Her excellent work ended up as a picture page in today’s paper. She wrote the text too.

But if you head over to the NYTimes online, you can see the exact same story (with many more images) as a 4 minute slide show narrated by Nicole with the voices of the people who lost their homes. Tell me which one you think is more powerful. I don’t think there is any doubt.
