Nice and easy does it

October 31, 2007

As the new Argentine president elect senator Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner arrives at the Casa Rosada for the first official engagement following her election, Marcos Brindicci uses depth of field to lightly blur the image of her husband and predecessor Nestor Kirchner, drawing the eye to the former First Lady and nicely flattening the background.

The image is suggestive of the way in which attention has passed from the outgoing president to his wife, the first woman to run the country. 

It is simple and nicely executed and worthy of its place in today’s Editor’s Choice.
