Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit to this week’s Trayvon Martin cover contest. Here are all of the images, including the winner and runners-up, so that you can flip through and form your own opinions. I love watching artists sift through a difficult event to find its visual symbols. For the Trayvon Martin shooting, hoodies, guns and skittles rose to the top. This is a necessary sort of reduction - in telling visual-stories, we reduce events to their essence and use those symbols as blocks with which to construct complex ideas. As always, I am interested to hear your thoughts.
