Like a bull in a china shop, Bruce Gilden lets loose with Fashion Magazine, a high-concept, tongue-in-cheek take on the glossy conventions of the fashion world. In the seven-part magazine, Gilden recasts the world of beauty and glamour through his up-close and aggressive street photography style.
The Mennonites, a Protestant religious sect related to the Amish, have migrated around the world to maintain their way of life. The majority of them now reside in Mexico, and many live or regularly travel to work in rural parts of Canada. After meeting and befriending them as neighbors in Canada, Magnum photographer Larry Towell documented their lives for more than 10 years. The resulting collection, The Mennonites, creates a unique and intimate portrait of an often misunderstood people.
Sculptures can memorialize great leaders, or capture an abstract idea or feeling. Sometimes, when sculpture and human subject are juxtaposed, the result can blur the viewer’s perception of which form is the “real” one. Magnum and Slate present a gallery of the art form.
