Perhaps the most famous photograph of a child ever taken, an Afghan girl staring intensely into the camera, appeared on the cover of the June 1985 issue of National Geographic. The image of this girl with the striking, greenish, marbled eyes, and telling expression, seemed to say so much about the life of a young girl in her country, and the life she was destined to lead.

Latvian restaurant Hospitalis is making people sick, and it’s not what you think.
Inspired by a recent trip to the ER, which, by the way, was terrible ( the song “They Don’t Care About Us” ran through my mind like a broad on a treadmill – the lyrics about being invisible and being ignored really stand out.) I decided to write about this pop restaurant that I heard about a little while ago. Nestled in the youthful capital of Riga, Latvia, Hospitalis offers [ Continue Reading ]
In the world of Caitlin Worthington, there are no happy endings, only the intensity that is Real Life. She’s a 19 year old Aussie who became a self taught photographer at the age of 13. Her photographic mission, to capture her subjects’ uniqueness, has turned itself into a display of self-possessed, haunting images, with eyes that seem to bore right through you.
Exactly how many times have you heard the expression “walking on the moon” by an artist? Once? Twice? Never? Well, for your information and personal memory catalog, there was that relatively catchy song in 2009 by recording artist/producer the Dream. And then you have Alan Bean. Never heard of him? That’s not surprising, even though he was one of only a handful of men [ Continue Reading ]
