In publishing the annual best ‘Photos of 2007’ of The Christian Science Monitor, the revered International Newspaper says the editors reviewed their image archives for the following, among other factors:
– Composition or content?
– Art or urgency?
– Does the image speak to the human heart?
Above all the Monitor has another important measure; does the image live up to the Monitor’s mission,
“To injure no man, but to bless all mankind”?
