The Self Assigned Photographer
by Dennis Stock

Afghanistan
by Chris Steele-Perkins
Afghanistan is a collaboration between photographer Chris Steele-Perkins and famed Afghan poet Sayd Bahodine Majrouh. In attempting to capture the continuing cycles of everyday life despite the country’s harsh reality of war, Steele-Perkins has created a celebration of Afghanistan, which he visited numerous times in the course of five years. "It was heroic, beautiful, violent, twisted, gracious, and tragic," Steele-Perkins explains. "The experience of being there works its way into one's being; an infection of the soul demanding that you return."

The Fiesta de San Fermín
by Magnum Photographers
July 6 through 14 marks the Fiesta de San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain, home to the infamously dangerous “running of the bulls,” when people race with bulls through the streets before they congregate in the arena for a daily bullfight.
Carl de KeyzerQuote of the Week
I want to question the images that are in our memory. There is always a double level in my work; what you see is true and at the same time not true.
— Carl de Keyzer
