Quote of the Week
A photograph isn't necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It's more of a fleeting, subjective impression.

Book of the Week: Telex: Iran
by Gilles Peress
The photographs in Gilles Peress’ Telex: Iran were taken during a five-week period in late 1979 and early 1980—a time of upheaval for the country. Published first in 1984, then again in 1997, this book and its images remain relevant today.

Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway
by Magnum Photographers
Writer Ernest Hemingway, who was born on July 21, 1899, became friends with Magnum founder Robert Capa during the Spanish Civil War while they were covering the conflict as correspondents. Throughout their friendship, Capa photographed Hemingway and in doing so successfully captured the spirit and sense of adventure they shared. Hemingway, who redefined the English language with his signature sparse writing style, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.
