Llamando a la puerta de Strauss-Kahn

NEW YORK, NY – JUNE 06: Former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn arrives back at his temporary Manhattan residence following a court appearance in Manhattan Supreme Court in the morning where he plead not guilty to charges that he sexually assaulted a hotel housekeeper last month on June 6, 2011 in New York City. Strauss-Kahn, who was expected to be a contender for the French presidency, made his first court appearance since he was let out on $1 million bail and set under house arrest last month.   Spencer Platt/Getty Images/AFP == FOR NEWSPAPERS, INTERNET, TELCOS & TELEVISION USE ONLY ==

Una de las búsquedas habituales desde que estamos en el periódico ha sido la del Presidente del FMI en castellano e IMF en inglés Dominique Strauss-Khan. Siempre ha sido una busqueda difícil por el compuesto de su nombre. El concentrador en el que buscamos da problemas con los guiones. También nos ocurre con la ministra de cultura Ángeles González-Sinde. Además el nombre del ya ex-presidente siempre ha sido un poco complicado de escribir y de incluir en los titulares… Por eso se acortó su nombre en los medios por las siglas DSK.

En este post he recopilado una serie de fotos de la nueva residencia de Dominique en el barrio de Tribeca de Nueva York. Ahí vive desde que le detuvieron por el intento de violación a una camarera de hotel y le pusieron en libertad bajo fianza. El juicio está en marcha y el propio DSK  paga esa casa que le sirve de carcel y también paga a sus carceleros. Durante los primeros días de su detención en Tribeca no había imágenes de DSK y las agencias pasaban todo tipo de fotos de la puerta del edificio. Siempre que haces un objeto, fachada, puerta o edificio noticioso, es siempre aconsejable que aparezca una persona o “mono” (cómo solemos decir en la mesa). De esta manera se le dá un toque de acción a la imagen sosa de un elemento inanimado. Recuerdo las veces que he ido a hacer un precinto policial y utilizas a un compañero cámara para darle algo de vida a la foto de una puerta con un precinto.

Estas son algunas de las fotos de la puerta de DSK que hicieron los fotógrafos que montaban guardia frente a su carcel de lujo. En ellas salen carteros, basureros, mendigos, repartidores de comida a domicilio, policias, familiares, turistas y hasta un grupo de judios ortodoxos. Finalmente salió DSK de su carcel para ir al juicio y conseguimos la foto de su salida, llegada al juzgadoy vuelta a su celda. Pero hoy vuelve a ser noticia y tenemos que buscar esas fotos de archivo de DSK o utilizar esos recursos de alguien llamando a la puerta de Strauss-Khan.
