Lee Howdle was out enjoying a hike in the English countryside on Friday, Feb. 7, when he looked to the sky and saw an otherwordly sight.As he trekked up Mam Tor, a 1,696-foot-high hill in the county of Derbyshire, located in the English Midlands, he saw what appeared to be an angellike image shrouded in mist and surrounded by a colorful halo, staring back at him.As it turns out, it wasn't a divine presence appearing in Howdle's path, but rather his own shadow reflected back into the sky,...

Why the Soviets Doctored Their Most Iconic World War II Victory Photo, “Raising a Flag Over the Reichstag”

No photograph symbolizes American victory more recognizably than Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize-winning Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. Taken on February 23, 1945, it shows six U.S. Marines raising their country's flag during the battle — a bloody one even by the standards of the Second World War — for control of that Japanese island. The Soviet Union had an equivalent image: Yevgeny Khaldei's  Raising a Flag over the Reichstag , which shows a Russian soldier raising the Soviet flag on ...

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel made a bold call that TikTok could become bigger than Instagram because it focuses on talent and not likes

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel told the DLD conference in Germany on Sunday that short-form video app TikTok has an edge over Instagram because its content is driven by "talent" rather than a quest for social status. Consequently he said the app could grow faster and become bigger than Instagram, which dominates social media apps along with Facebook. Instagram has been trying to move away from its reputation of being a shallow, status-oriented platform, enforcing changes like removing public like coun...

Iran’s Only Female Olympic Medalist, Kimia Alizadeh, Defects From Islamic Republic

(DUBAI, United Arab Emirates) — Iran’s only female Olympic medalist said she defected from the Islamic Republic in a blistering online letter that describes herself as “one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran.” Taekwondo athlete Kimia Alizadeh posted the letter on Instagram as Iran’s semiofficial ISNA news agency said she had fled to the Netherlands. She criticized wearing the mandatory hijab headscarf and accused officials in Iran of sexism and mistreatment. “Whatever they said, I w...

What to expect in digital media in 2020

As we start 2020, the media and entertainment sectors are in flux. New technologies are enabling new types of content, streaming platforms in multiple content categories are spending billions in their fight for market share and the interplay between social platforms and media is a central topic of global political debate (to put it lightly). As TechCrunch’s media columnist, I spoke to hundreds of entrepreneurs and executives in North America and Europe last year about the shifts underway across ...

The Contax Brand, 1974-2005

Apropos the previous post, Roger Bartlett wrote: Having coined the term 'bokeh' you have a track record for instigating new stuff—so if such a lens were to be created, no matter who the manufacturer, then a lens with this feature set would have to be called the 'Johnston' or at least have the letters MJ included in the name on the filter ring. Mike, you already have a Patreon following—perhaps start a cloud funding drive and get this lens on a production line. A project for 2020. Well, I had abo...

Brands of the decade: 2010–2019

Ten years ago, when social media and blogging were still new and a rational person was in the White House, I did something ambitious and presumptuous: I published a list of the Brands of the Decade.* And now it’s time to do it again. To qualify for my highly subjective top-12 list, a brand had to meet these guidelines: Founded during the second decade of the 21st century or shortly before or Had a significant impact on the way we do business or live our lives during this decade or ...

They have opened a new Galeries Lafayette here in our neighbourhood called Beaugrenelle. I hopped over to look-it’s a very short walk-and get some photos. It’s much smaller and much less impressive than the original or the one on Champs Elysees. One of the pretty windows. The colourful interior as you go down the escalator. Not nearly as glamorous as a Galeries Lafayette. Lidl, a chain which originally started in Germany, isn’t too far from us. It’s a discount groc...

The Fall of the Berlin Wall, November 1989

This weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the most prominent symbol of the aftermath of World War Two and of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the West. In 1989, photojournalists David and Peter Turnley spent a great deal of time inside East Germany and all over Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Both subsequently covered the fall of the wall and the aftermath leading to the reunification of Germany. That year, 1989, David won The Overseas Press Clu...

Sunday Support Group for that Rare Darkroom Rat: Enlarger Dealz

You're not looking to buy a brand new B&W enlarger. Know how I know? Because no one is looking to buy a brand new B&W enlarger. But consider this. For people who want to practice old-fashioned, obsolescent film / analog / traditional / opto-chemical B&W photography (whatever you want to call it) from soup to nuts, start to finish, it's not the film or the chemicals or the cameras but the enlarger that might well be the bottleneck going forward. The reason is that an enlarger is one of those devi...

Berlin after the Wall – then and now

The photographer Colin McPherson began documenting Berlin in the years after the fall of the Wall in 1989, looking at how the redevelopment of the city gradually and inexorably started rubbing out the physical traces of where the watchtowers, barbed wire and no-man’s land had previously existedAfter the euphoria at the end of the cold war came the realisation that the reunification of city and state in Berlin would be a long and difficult process. The divided city had grown apart politically, ec...

Punk persecution: how East Germany cracked down on alternative lifestyles - in pictures

Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, East Germany’s secret police regarded punks as the most dangerous youth element in the country and ‘the leading force’ behind anti-government activities. These unnamed police mugshots from the former DDR demonstrate the lengths to which the security services would surveil, harass and detain punk ‘adherents’ and ‘sympathisers’.Burning Down the Haus: Punk Rock, Revolution and the Fall of the Berlin Wall by Tim Mohr is published by Dialogue Books Continue readin...

Lemonade gets a nastygram from Deutsche Telekom over its use of magenta, says it will fight

Deutsche Telekom is perhaps best known around the world as the telco behind mobile carrier T-Mobile, but today it’s making an appearance in a lesser-known yet also regular role: trademark troll. The company’s German lawyers have sent a letter to Lemonade, the AI-based insurance startup headquartered in New York, demanding it cease using magenta — a color that appears across Lemonade’s logo and marketing material — globally. DT also filed for and received an injunction on Lemonade operating in Ge...
