What does a computer screen do better than a newspaper or magazine? What advantage does it have over print media?
For me, one of the answers is displaying photographs in their full glory, with all the brilliance, detail, and luminosity that’s impossible with print. Even the best, the ones you turned to for great pictures — Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Life, etc. — couldn’t overcome the limitations of ink, paper, and size.
If you’ll peruse the Boston Globe’s “The Big Picture,” you’ll see what I mean. Pick a topic that interests you … and enjoy. This is photography at its finest. Big, bright, glorious.
