Martinelli could hardly have found a prouder adversary than Carrera who, at 42 and elected only in September, is the first woman to lead Panama's largest indigenous tribe. "The land is our mother. It is because of her that we live," she says simply. "The people will defend our mother." Carrera holds Martinelli in scant regard. She accuses him of "mocking" indigenous people and considers his administration a government of businessmen who "use us to entertain themselves, saying one thing today and another tomorrow". … [Read more...] about Panama’s village leader Silvia Carrera defies a president

“The New York Post is my favorite newspaper. Reading the New York Post is like talking to someone who heard the news, and now they’re trying to give you the gist. It’s like, you’d get the same amount of information if you grabbed someone on the street and you were like, ‘What happened today?’ and they’re like, ‘There’s a perv in Queens!’ You’d be like, ‘All right, thank you.’ Or, rather, it’s like someone read a better newspaper, and now they’re trying to text you everything they can remember. Doesn’t have to be right, just has to be short. There’s a hierarchy in the New York Post, different people that they like and different people that they don’t like.

In this, she is aided by director Lynne Ramsay’s distinctively oblique visual style, going against the grain and dwelling on unexpected, revelatory moments.

Newton bought his first camera in 1932, and by the age of 17 had apprenticed himself to the theatrical photographer Yva (Else Simon). The situation in Berlin became increasingly more dangerous for Jews, and in 1938 he left for Singapore, and then Australia. From 1940 to 1945 he served in the Australian Army, and after settling in Sydney, he met and, in 1948, married the photographer and actress June F Browne, also known as June Brunell, and, more improbably, as Alice Springs. Her influence seems to have been considerable: the notion of a model as actress is hardly a new one, but Browne's collaboration with Newton, on both sides of the camera, was substantial. … [Read more...] about Helmut Newton
