The Atlantic launches new Photo section →

January 09, 2015 |

Alan Taylor:

I’d like to introduce our readers to The Atlantic’s new Photo section, an expanded home for photography at This new section features not only an updated look, but more variety in formats, wider images for bigger screens, and a design that works well across a range of mobile devices.

As the editor of the Photo section, I’ll continue to publish long-form photo essays nearly every day, as I have for years, in a series we’ll still call In Focus, but I’ll also start publishing shorter posts—often just a single noteworthy image—under a new category we’re calling Burst. I’m really excited to be able to share even more high-quality photography with even more readers.

Great new section, but the full-page popover ads on every page refresh are just heinous.
