Alan Taylor understands that it's human nature to want to tell stories, especially visually. Without that inherent need and desire, his work as Senior Editor for The Atlantic's "In Focus" blog wouldn't have a place in the industry. Alan takes us through some of the blog's most popular and most powerful photo stories, and why he believes that finding the money to support these photographers is so essential.
Alan Taylor created the successful news photo blog "The Big Picture" for The Boston Globe in 2008. He ran the site for two years before joining The Atlantic to start "In Focus," another photojournalism blog, in January of 2011. Formerly a web developer, Taylor combined his love of storytelling and photography with the web skills he'd developed to create a new platform for visual storytelling.
