Guest Post: Debra Graham

  Like many of the other blog posters who have shared about themselves here, I’ve wondered if I should accept Corey’s invitation to tell a bit about my life.

Lukashenko is widely believed by international observers to have rigged the country’s recent elections in his favor, preventing the election of opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya.

Following a summer in the life of a 10-year-old who’s recently moved to a new neighbourhood, the film won acclaim (and criticism, when it was included in the curriculum in French schools) around the world f...

"You have to humanize the protest and the struggle. If you don’t have the faces of the protesters in 1968 in Prague..."

If you don’t have the faces of the protesters in Tiananmen Square, you don’t show to the rest of the world the reality of the situation."Said Eric Baradat, a photo editor, quoted in "Face of a Dissident As images from protests circulate online, some fear that individuals will become targets" (The Cut (NY Magazine).Consider this:“Six young men died within the first 4 y...

Travel 2

Can you believe it’s May 1st? April was so long and I think May will be the same as the confinement continues. More travel photos from trips through the years. I loved this church in the old section of Berlin. I loved Berlin too. This was a church in northern Spain when we did the Camino. In Pamploma. A delightful church door with overgrown trees in Stow on the Wold, England. Rousillon in Provence. Mont St Michel in Normandy.

The flood of status symbol content into Instagram Stories has run dry. No one is going out and doing anything cool right now, and if they are, they should be shamed for it. Beyond sharing video chat happy hour screenshots and quarantine dinner concoctions, our piece-by-piece biographies have ground to a halt. Oddly, what remains feels more social than social networks have in a long time. With no source material, we’re doing it live. Coronavirus has absolved our desire to share the recent past...
