Um ano sem Zara Contemporary Art Daily Daily Icon Exhibit Unravels Mysteries of Ancient Chinese Temples Through History, Science | PBS NewsHour | July 11, 2011 JUDY WOODRUFF: Finally tonight, bringing together art, history and science. Jeffrey Brown takes us through a unique museum exhibition. JEFFREY BROWN: Sculptures from sixth century China, the head of a Buddha, a seated bodhisattva, a kneeling winged monster, works of art from museums around the world. They tell a tale that goes back some 1,500 years. This is a story of ancient history and the latest technology. It begins in Northeast China in what is today a rural coal mining area at the Xiangtangshan caves. Today, worshipers still come to the caves, but they pray to largely empty spaces.

German photographer Heinz Maier says that he began taking photographs less than a year ago in late 2010. He claims to not know what direction he’s heading in just yet, right now he’s experimenting with macro photography, mostly insects, animals, and these delicate high speed water droplets. Personally, I think he’s found a great direction. There are so many things happening here to make these photographs simply outstanding: the lighting, the colors, the occasional use of symmetry in the reflection of water, let alone the skill of knowing how to use the camera itself.

The Year in Pictures Visual Discrepancies Daily Fiction Fiction 247:Chaque année… chaque année ça arrive. Après le 12 vient le 13 et après le 13, immanquablement, le 14 : 14 septembre, date unique. Unique en son genre, vraiment. Mais quand donc est-elle morte cette pauvre petite me demanderez-vous ? Alors voilà, nous sommes le 14 septembre et je m’apprête à supporter une nouvelle fois le poids écrasant de cette journée unique entre toutes en me rappelant qu’en 1983, ce jour-là, Amy Winehouse venait au monde.
