If there’s one thing we can all agree about in this digitally-encoded information age in which we live — when vast libraries featuring the collected wisdom of nearly all of human history are almost always at our finger tips — it’s that words are overrated. They are terribly inefficient tools of communication.
But how much so? Well, someone — maybe Einstein? — long ago ran the numbers and determined that images are equal to 1000x, if x is the value of a word.
With that in mind, we’ve combed through our media library of the last year’s worth of pictures to appear in the pages of D Magazine and have selected our favorites. The resulting gallery (which you can view right here) is worth something in the neighborhood of 23,000 words.
That’s the equivalent of reading a novella — in hours less time. You’re welcome.
