The spreading protest movement in the United States got its first real photographic icon this week—a pudgy college-campus cop packing a can of pepper spray. All around the country, the crackdown on “Occupy” protests resulted in imagery depicting the force of authority as a threat. Elsewhere in the world: violent clashes in Cairo, a change of power in Italy, a gathering of the faithful in Benin, crime-scene photos in New York, an explosive college sports scandal in Pennsylvania, and the world’s most stylish wedding in Colorado. And let’s not forget the fashion icon baring her soul for the camera, and the high-tech camera that looks like a hummingbird. It’s been a remarkable visual week in the media.
