This Week in Photography Books: Nick St. Oegger

  Sometimes, I feel like an armchair Tony Bourdain. (Minus the depression, thankfully.) I still have a hard time thinking about Tony, as his death both hit me hard, and exposed the power of his through-the-camera-charm. When Tony killed himself, there was an outpouring of global grief that I’ve seen very few times. It was big when Pope John Paul died. Sure. And David Bowie. People got really upset about that one. But even a President like Ronald Fucking Reagan made barely a blip, when he finally...

Week 13: Selfies, Art and Natural Beauty of LA

Once again on our morning of departure from LA we did a quick about face and change of plans. We wanted to go to Death Valley, but after a few phone calls to reserve an RV campsite we realized it was not the best decision. Everything was booked out as it’s peak season now. Death Valley is not an ideal summer destination. We also learned there are a few road closures thanks to weather destruction. So there is a fair bit of work going on AND gold mining, which meant the chances of us getting accom...

From France to Sweden to Ireland, here are a few ways to decorate for the holidays like the Europeans do. England: Trim ...

Deleting Facebook is not enough: without antitrust, the company will be our lives' "operating system"

Is it time to remove Zuckerberg from (his) office?

A colleague, who shall remain nameless (because privacy is not dead), gave a thumbs down to a recent column in the NYT.
