System Lord Obama


Designers make eyes 'pop' by whitening the whites, but sometimes the results just look odd–especially if the source image is an arty sort of thing. So I wonder if this unflattering shot of President Obama betrays a measure of shoop–if not quite so much as granted to System Lord Condoleezza Rice–or is just a trick of the light. The close-up is a cellphone photo of the mag itself, on which I superimposed a thumbnail of it from Ebony's website.
