Louis Rossignol: The Art of Handwriting

            Louis Rossignol (1694) was a master calligraphist. "Not all calligraphy is the same. In fact, this form of artistic handwriting can actually fall into a number of different styles.

Coquimbo, Its Giant Cross and the Fish Market

In La Serena, there’s the Faro Monumental, the big lighthouse that marks the beginning of Avenida del Mar and provides an endless source of inspiration for tacky souvenirs. But at the other end of the 11-kilometre-long beach, on top of a hill, there’s another city with another giant structure and, I suspected, another batch of tacky souvenirs—Coquimbo and the Cruz del Tercer Milenio. I Googled it—I had never heard of it. Apparently, the cross built in 2001 to mark the 2,000 years since the birth...

It isn’t just apps. China’s cinemas broke records during Lunar New Year

China celebrated Lunar New Year last week as hundreds of millions of people travelled to their hometowns.

How much do you earn?” Luckily, there are ways to survive the festive time in this digital age. Smartphone usage during this period has historically surged.

Skiing in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Ski weekends aren’t easy anymore. Once they were simple escapes to the snow where you could shell out a little money for a lift ticket, sleep on floors, and eat Power Bars on the chairlift. But as we get older, they become full-on mini vacations. A ski destination now has to have good places to eat. And breweries. And maybe even a spa for a post-ski massage. Those places exist, but they’re also full of vacation-like prices, with $130-a-day lift tickets that earn you the right to wait in 10-15...

One lovely idea is to explore spa pampering that goes well beyond the traditional massage or facial. After all, love is a many splendored thing, but so are you.

Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park

Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park in British Columbia has everything the Canadian Rockies are famous for — including craggy mountain peaks and turquoise lakes — but without the crowds you get in a place like Banff National Park. With no roads in or out, the park is essentially undeveloped. Aside from an old backcountry lodge, a smattering of rustic log cabins, and a barebones campground, the only development you’ll find is a network of hiking trails connecting you to some of the most beautifu...

Uniformed nationalists at Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine

On February 11th, which is National Foundation Day, several groups from the far right pay their respects at Tokyo’s Yasukuni Shrine with a parade of sorts and an official Shinto service. By far the most significant gathering, at least in terms of numbers anyway, is the troop pictured below. A ragtag bunch of characters that I’ve been photographing for quite a few years now — some of the results of which can be seen here. And this Monday, as ever, was no different, with the same flags, and to be ...
