Among the images collected within the articles corpus, there were also many photos portraying people. These photos are visualized separately from the rest of the corpus with the aim to analyze how providers represent the actors in the climate change discussion. The first part of the visualization shows how the actors have changed over time in terms of quantity. Some people are represented with about the same amount of pictures. It’s the case of Barack Obama, that is always present in the three years.
Other people, such as Donald Trump, Leonardo DiCaprio and Hillary Clinton, record a sudden rise in 2016. In order to better investigate the causes of some of these trends, the second part of the visualization shows the actual images that portray the actors, divided by category and by year. The categories are organized by what is shown in the photograph itself, and they are arranged from the most populated to the least.
