Giants caught by the camera

7th November 2003 at 00:00
I have noticed that when you publish photographs of "superheads" dressed in their best suits and trilling about uniform, excellence and team-work they always appear to be 15-ft tall. Do you tell your photographers to attach their cameras to their kneecaps to sustain the image of the man or woman of iron will wrestling heroically to "turn round" some benighted establishment, or do you employ very small photographers?
