The Many Faces of George W. Bush

Filmmaker Errol Morris interviews three head photo editors and asks them to highlight photos of George W. Bush they find particularly interesting or enlightening. The three editors, Vincent Amalvy (AFP), Santiago Lyon (AP) and Jim Bourg (Reuters) come from very different backgrounds. Amalvy's opinions are particularly interesting. He notes the ways in which Americans have much more access to their head of state than Europeans. Santiago Lyon explains the ways in which presidential images are carefully scripted and posed, while Jim Bourg tries to highlight images that are able to capture the authentic emotion of the presidency.
