The Perception Issue of Columbia Journalism Review explores “what the press looks like from the outside—and what we misread about ourselves.” Thinking about the subjective nature of perception guided our experimental approach to this issue’s art direction: we gave six very different artists an open-ended prompt to depict how the press is perceived. Artists: Edmon de Haro, Serge Bloch, Ellen Weinstein, Vivienne Flesher, Dadu Shin, Lincoln Agnew
