Previous scholars have analyzed who selects the images that appear in the newspaper. Several factors that influence this decision are mentioned. In this research paper, I focus specifically on an audience’s influence in a photo editor’s decisions. I analyze how two difference newspapers – the GW Hatchet and the Washington Post – covered the civil rights marches in D.C. after Dr. King’s assassination. I perform a qualitative analysis of the images, and then contemplate how the audience of these two newspapers may have influenced how they selected photographs to put in the paper. Both of these publications have very different audiences, and I point out how that is reflected in how these two newspapers visually covered these protests and demonstrations. Ultimately, I conclude that a publication’s audience does influence how that publication visually covers an event.
