Politics and Portraits

This piece at The Guardian today, entitled "Follow the Leaders: the Art of the Political Portrait," is moderately interesting - mostly for the platitudes uttered by the photographers. It reminded me of this earlier, eminently more incisive and insightful piece by Germaine Greer that the paper published (and that I briefly noted) some time ago. I suppose the contrast reveals the difference between being a stenographer and writing an essay.
