50 Incredible Photos Of Animals From 2011 Artist index - Gillian Wearing - Mass Observation - Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago "Self Portrait", 2000 Chromogenic development print Photo courtesy of Maureen Paley Interim Art, London Gillian Wearing Mass Observation Gillian Wearing has emerged as one of the foremost British artists of her generation, creating video installations and photographic works that explore the strange humor and wrenching tragedy of everyday life. Winner of Britain’s prestigious Turner Prize in 1997, Wearing has exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally. Her work often uses the techniques of documentary films and television to frame alternately unsettling, disturbing, comical, and unpredictable actions and words of various people drawn from the general populace of London. The MCA exhibition will be the first solo museum exhibition of Wearing's work in the United States, presenting a survey of her photography and video work from 1996 to 2002.

How to meditate Feeling scatterbrained? Stressed-out and overwhelmed? Depressed? Warning: your life might change if you start meditating. Develop appreciation for the mundane every-day tasks that bore you and keep you joyless. You gotta believe! Can’t sit still for an hour while you’re in a position that seems like you’d strain your groin staying in it for any longer than a minute? Don’t let that dissuade you from giving meditation a try.

Photographer Nick Brandt says, "The emphasis has generally been on capturing the drama of wild animals IN ACTION, on capturing that dramatic single moment, as opposed to simply animals in the state of being." I agree with Brandt and appreciate his stunning contributions to wildlife photography. The native Londoner first discovered the beauty of Africa's majestic creatures sprawled out on the breathtakingly unaltered landscapes in 1995, when he was still making music videos, practicing his formal training in film. It was in 2000 that that he shifted his medium of choice to photography. Since then, Brandt has documented the extraordinary wildlife of Africa and its unfortunate decimation. It isn't all gut-wrenching photography, though. Nick Brandt's website
