Since before Elizabeth Bumiller came up with the term for the Times, I was a fan of Sforzian Backgrounds, the news-manipulating slogans created by Scott Sforza, a key member of the White House's advance scenery and production team, for just about every public appearance of George W. Bush.
Sforzian is now generally applied to a stage-managed, news-manipulating, political display, such as the image of world leaders marching shoulder-to-shoulder with millions in the Charlie Hebdo unity rally, except really the leaders were on their own down a sealed-off side street.
A montage to make us believe they are. Instead of simply crafting a single, standalone image, make a photo-op that blends seamlessly into the broader visual narrative of the event. I believe this colonization of a montage represents an advance in Sforzian technique which warrants more investigation. Stay tuned.
