Photo captions in editorial text should be full sentences ending with a period. A photo credit follows the caption; there is no period after the photographer’s name:

  • Patricia LaBianca’s book explores the traditional foods of Brazil. Photo by Cydney Scott

Directionals go in parentheses:

  • Robert Jones (left) and David Harris are best friends.
  • Kenneth Elmore (from left), Judy Platt, and Joan Salge Blake are colleagues.
