Here’s today’s News and Notes with so many great articles.
I am especially interested in a new book published by the Smithsonian Institute called “Photography Changes Everything”. That says a ton about how photography affects the world, your personal life, love, hate, and everything in between. There’s a chapter entitled “Photography Changes How We Record and Respond to Social Issues”. That is so so true. There have been many times when I see photographs of people in need, and I donate. That is a response to a photograph by showing us the social issue at hand.
It looks like a phenomenal record of history, art, and media. I will have to order a copy.
There’s an article about merchandise warehouses in China. Having been to China, I can attest that there are quite a lot of these overcrowded, overstocked, unsightly stores, and the sales people inside are scarey in their persistence. I didn’t want to go into them because the clerks were yelling things like “Lady, come here – you must see this, Lady, Lady”. It was not pleasant.
Ok, go read.
