HCI researchers looking thoughtful

There was a time, maybe two weeks ago, when I was taken by the idea that many of the photos computer science researchers use to represent themselves are posed with the subject leaning forward. I thought of this phenomenon as Computer Science Researchers Leaning Slightly Forward.

Now, just in time for issue 1.2, I’m ready to perpetrate my own visual cliche. It’s called Human-Computer Interaction Researchers Looking Thoughtfully At A Whiteboard. I think this is really the right time for photos of interesting researchers looking interested. So, below, a heavily treated photo of some quite delightful researchers (about whom you’ll hear more when 1.2 comes out) looking interested. And yes, I did ask them to pose like that.

    This brings to mind an article about Stock Photo Clich├ęs I found some weeks ago. From People Kissing Computers Alone to the unexpected Women Proud Of Their Two Apples they seem to have missed this one!
