Ten stories and photo projects I enjoyed this past week, stored here for my bookmark file and your reading and looking enjoyment. So, enjoy!
- Yes Magazine: Are the people of Sarayuku the face of 21st century indigenous resistance? On a community deep in the Amazon of southern Ecuador, that is beating big oil.
- Shitphone: A Love Story. An ode to off-brand electronics by John Herrman for Matter on Medium. (h/t Longreads.)
- From Cool Hunting, an interview with photographer Pieter Hugo on South African identity, colonial legacy and the impact of Instagram on art.
- Did you that there’s a new Wired? (h/t SwissMiss.)
- From the Atlantic: 50 Years Ago: A Look Back at 1965. Why? It’s the year I was born. Good reason enough, no? Selma, Vietnam, The Beatles, NASA and The Twist.
- Via Humble Arts Foundation: Christopher Rodriguez’ Refreshing Perspective on the American Landscape – A somewhat disjointed collection of images that work as a whole remarkably well.
- ‘We Are the World’ at 30. Rolling Stone has an (almost) minute-by-minute breakdown on the epic all-nighter.
- Time Lightbox offers a look at the work of Florence Henri, an influential if little known surrealist photographer of the last 1920s and early 1930s.
- From Feature Shoot, a spotlight on Birds of Paradise by Israeli photographer Itamar Freed. Mythical Scenes Capture the Bond Between Humans and Birds (NSFW).
