longest, most detailed Gawker post ever!

Or so they say. And it's on The New Yorker. Thanks, everyone, for calling my attention to Gawker on Brown, Remnick, etc.

The post notes this, and I think it's funny, that the presence of "photographs" often defines, or stands in for a definition of, Brown's New Yorker. One might, instead, find a kind of continuity in the older caricature portraits (similar things still appear in Talk, for instance) and the bw photographic portraits that accompany profiles now.

And I don't know if Brown really introduced the other use of photos in TNY - those color-exotic-journalistic-photos that accompany some of the more sensational current events writing?
