Minutes to MidnightPoint and Shoot
Minutes to Midnight
by Trent Parke

Trent Parke captured "Minutes to Midnight" during a two-year journey across Australia at the end of which his son was born. It is both a document of a nation mourning the loss of a perceived innocence and a man's vision and evolution.

Point and Shoot
by Philip Jones Griffiths

Throughout his long career, Phillip Jones Griffiths has poignantly documented violent conflict with unabashed honesty and disdain for its consequences. "I’ve covered many wars and seen what bullets do to flesh and I’m rather proud to say that I got all that macho stuff out of my system in my youth."

Integration of Schools: The Legacy of Brown v. Board of Education
by Magnum Photographers
This week in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kan., that separate educational facilities were inherently unequal and in violation of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. The case overturned the 1896 ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson, which established the doctrine of "separate but equal." After the ruling, appeals continued against legal school integration and, later, busing.

The photograph is completely abstracted from life, yet it looks like life. That is what has always excited me about photography.
