Big Picture Editor Moving to The Atlantic

Alan Taylor, the brain child behind Boston.com’s The Big Picture photo blog, is leaving for The Atlantic, according to a story on the Nieman Journalism Lab’s web site. Taylor started the blog and ran it for the last two years while continuing to do his normal web development job. At the new gig, he’ll focus just on the images.

I am a big fan of Taylor’s work – he was one of (if not the) first to do something like this and, arguably, has had the most success at it. Very interested to see what comes next.
