The Spectacle of Breaking News - A Photo Essay of Current Events

Welcome to the Spin Zone

Bobbie Boschan is a photographer and news junkie.

Her addiction began, she remembers, when she was five years old and she and her family where gathered around the radio to listen to news and announcements of a surprise attack on the United States.

The date was December 7th 1941, Pearl Harbor.

Then it was Walter Winchell, Gabriel Heater and Edward R Murrow delivering the news.

Bobbie is puzzled by Reality TV.  As if the breaking news is not enough!

In all its particular manifestations --news, propaganda, advertising, entertainment-- the spectacle represents the dominant model of life
