Photographing for over 50 years, Thomas Hoepker has seen a world of change through his lens, from the Cold War division of his native Germany to the fall of the Twin Towers on September 11th.

Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert draws creative inspiration from the places where earth meets sea. And while the shoreline may not be always be the main focus of his pictures, it forms a backdrop as regular as the pounding surf.
Book of the Week: The New Life, La Vie Nouvelle
by Lise Sarfati
Curator F. Javier Panera writes, "This new book by Twin Palms Publishers features a series of 50 photographs by French photographer Lise Sarfati. The photographs were taken in cities like Austin, Asheville, Portland, Berkeley, Oakland, Los Angeles, New Orleans and some small towns in Georgia.
In each of these portraits, Lise Sarfati dramatizes the complexity of adolescent identity: within unfamiliar territory — both emotionally and physically — where the simplest of feelings become exalted and everything is lived with an intensity that adults will never again be able to feel."
