The BagNewsSalon, a program of BagNewsNotes, brings together the world's leading photojournalists, visual academics and other informed observers to understanding how the visual media frames the key social and political events of the day. The next Salon, "Campaign Mania" involves an early look at the 2012 presidential campaign. An expert panel will analyze a 9 photo edit ("9 photos in 90 minutes"), discussing what these photos imply about the campaign, as well as the depth, breadth and nature of the media's visual coverage.
