The Spanish Are Coming! by Adrian Tyler Cristina de Middel’s Afronauts was one of the most surprising book phenomenons of last year, however there are lot more new Spanish lens based artists and bookmakers to be discovered. The recent curatorial, critical and popular interest in the photobook and it’s place as the driving force in the history of modern photography is a welcome breath of fresh air which challenges traditional elitist museum based views. However, as far a Spain is concerned there is an almost complete void in this “history” which is especially notable from the 60’s to the present day. That is no to say that there were no good photographers working in Spain at this time – Juan Colom, Ramón Masats, Cristina Garcia Rodero, Carlos Pérez Siquier and Cristobal Hara to name a few – rather that the traditionally conservative nature of Spanish society meant that there was almost no photobook market and therefore no publishing houses.
A vanishing way of life captured forever: British photographer travels the world to record dozens of 'dying' tribes that are in danger disappearing forever British photographer Jimmy Nelson decided to travel the world for three years, visiting 35 tribes in all five continents By Daniel Miller Published: 11:05 GMT, 23 October 2013 | Updated: 15:19 GMT, 29 October 2013 It wasn't that they were unfriendly - they had repeatedly offered him of vodka, which, not being much of a drinker, he'd refused. But after failing to persuade them to pose for him, he decided to put his camera away and play the grateful guest. The result was that in no time at all he got steaming drunk and slumped into an alcoholic stupor.

Out of the 528 PEN members who responded to the survey, “Fully 85% are worried about government surveillance of Americans, and 73% of writers have never been as worried about privacy rights and freedom of the press as they are today.” Writers are also “”self-censoring their work and their online activity due to their fears that commenting on, researching, or writing about certain issues will cause them harm,” the survey finds, on topics such as “military affairs, the Middle East North Africa region, mass incarceration, drug policies, pornography, the Occupy movement, the study of certain languages, and criticism of the U.S. government”:
BEYOND BY LEXUS Magazine There’s nothing modest about the new Momofuku restaurant complex in downtown Toronto. Opened last fall next to the new Shangri-La Hotel, the four-restaurants-in-one Momofuku Toronto is a triplex tribute to Korean-American chef David Chang’s pan-Asian epicurean ambitions. Fronted by floor-to-ceiling glass walls, Momofuku owes its exterior architecture to Vancouver’s James K. M. Cheng and interiors to Toronto-based The Design Agency. Anchored in cast concrete, white oak and glass, Momofuku is divided into four discrete spaces spread over three floors: steamed buns and ramen noodles in the casual, first-floor Noodle Bar; the Nikai bar and lounge on the second floor; the third-floor 80-seat Daisho for full-size meals; and Shoto, with just 22 seats.

Witkin fell in love with death in all its manifestations.

Oleg Kashin's Horrible Truth - By Julia Ioffe The paramedics reached 30-year-old journalist Oleg Kashin Saturday morning at 12:40 a.m. He was lying outside the door to his apartment building in central Moscow, his face bloodied, his legs mangled, the ground covered in blood. "He showed his hand to the doctor so he could see it was all broken," a neighbor told TV reporters. The toll, tallied by various news sources, was chilling: two broken jaws, one broken leg, a fractured skull at the temple and a heavy concussion, blood in the lungs, fingers partially torn off at the joints, one of them later amputated. By the time Moscow woke up to the news on Saturday, Kashin was already in an artificially induced coma.
Brendan Monroe July 27, 2016 This year for Pow! Wow! Long Beach my wife, Evah, and I collaborated on our first mural together.

The beauty of this project relies on these subjects’ faces- most which reveal intense, unfiltered emotion.
