Sun-seekers at an abandoned forced labour camp: Rafał Milach’s best photograph

‘It had become a favourite spot for Estonians to swim and relax in – even though the perimeter fences, watchtowers and barbed wire were still there’It was August 2016 and I’d been travelling for weeks, documenting the decaying borders between the Baltic states. Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, there had been little in the way of physical demarcation between Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

I was invited to join a friend in Normandy, specifically in a city called Granville which turns out to be just north of the famous Mont Saint Michel. We had excellent weather and Granville is a very nice, but hilly, city. It was fun to explore an area I didn’t know much about. A partial view of a very long walkway which goes along the water. Granville, by the way, is the location of the highest tide in Europe. It’s one of those places where the tide goes way out exposing lots of rock and oy...

Sweat review – the loneliness of the social media influencer

Magnus von Horn’s contrived Polish drama about a fitness guru promises more in shock and character than it deliversIn theory, it should be possible to create a drama about a social media influencer and motivational fitness celebrity that isn’t all about the hidden loneliness and shame of her shallow existence. It should be possible to show such a person being a huge hit in public and perfectly content in private. But this movie from Polish director Magnus von Horn pretty much goes for route one,...

Little Black Door launches app on iOS/Android allowing women to share wardrobes, online and off

Our relationship with fashion has changed, not just because of the pandemic. Months in lockdown means people are probably more aware of their fashion purchases and how they consume, given its been such a long time without socialising. But the oft-talked about ‘Clueless wardrobe’ which would allow women to both see into their collections, as well as share and potentially borrow from friends, has yet to go mainstream. Now a UK startup aims to change this. The Little Black door app, previously in c...

TikTok called out for lack of ads transparency and for failing to police political payola

TikTok announced a ban on political advertising all the way back in 2019. So you’d be forgiven for thinking the ugly problem of democracy-denting political disinformation doesn’t apply inside its walled garden of dancing Gen Zers. But you’d be wrong. New research by Mozilla suggests that policy loopholes and lax oversight, especially around influencer marketing, coupled with an ongoing lack of ads transparency by TikTok — which offers no publicly searchable ad archive — are making its video-shar...
