Michelle McNally joined The New York Times as director of photography in June 2004 and was promoted to assistant managing editor in July 2005. Before joining The Times, Ms. McNally was picture editor of Fortune Magazine from November 1986 until May 2004. Previously, she was picture editor of Time Life's Magazine Development Group. She began her career as a sales representative for Sygma Photo News in 1977. In charge of all photography at the Times, Michelle McNally manages over a hundred people behind her narrow desk and is known as a hard-worker. Also famed for her discretion, she took part of the Lens portfolio reviews last Saturday and gave the opportunity to a few lucky young photographers to show her their work. At the end of the day, she took the time to sit down and agreed to talk a bit about her experience to Le Journal.
