Media Today in the Slow Death of Newspapers
posted by June 30 at 11:15 AMon
Recall Martin Gee, the San Jose Mercury News designer Jen posted about last April.
Gee keeps a great—if depressing—flickr account called “reduction in force,” with haunting photo essays of desolate newsrooms emptied out by layoffs and buyouts.
They look like archaeological sites—the detritus of human life left behind when the humans have been wiped out.
Gee has become one of the ghosts from his own photographs.
He just got laid off.
