Captions for group photos in newsletters and books usually appear in a
format that puzzles me. It seems the standard convention is to list FRONT
ROW first, then MIDDLE ROW, then BACK ROW last. I find it more logical to
list the BACK ROW first, and the FRONT ROW last in an effort to
graphically map to text to mimic the photo.
I would make an exception when the photo is composed of a group where the
princlples appear in the front row (ie, the officers of a club). The
captions for these photos would appear front row first.
Does anyone know of a precidence for group captions?
