Live Chat With Alan Taylor

More

Since February 2011, Alan Taylor's In Focus feature has been one of TheAtlantic.com's most popular destinations. Several times each week, Taylor, known for his editorial instincts and keen eye, assembles powerful photo essays on everything from wars and protests to global holidays and animals in the news.


This month, Taylor has assembled his first feature for The Atlantic's print edition, an image collection that captures the economic uncertainty of 2011. He came online this afternoon to chat with readers about this feature and answer questions about his day-to-day work. (This chat is now closed, but the full transcript appears below.)
