Paris in November can be drab and grey. Not this year. The lovely fall light is still basking the banks of the Seine. It makes walking to and from the Grand Palais, where Paris Photo, one of the world’s largest photography fairs, is underway, as much of a pleasure as reveling amidst the artwork galleries have brought out. To make the most of this time of year, a month the city of lights dedicates to the medium invented by Frenchman Nicéphore Niépce, come prepare with good shoes, plenty of euros for espressos and a game plan ...

a bit long but worth the time ....

"The Islamic State awaits the army of 'Rome,' whose defeat at Dabiq, Syria, will initiate the countdown to the apocalypse....

....the war may be a long one, even if it doesn’t last until the end of time."

"Without the winners of a lopsided global economy and the artists who dutifully butter them up, the vast majority of the crap on view last week in Miami would not exist."
There's a growing connoisseur class that has developed a special predilection for what is, without a doubt, the new art of the 21st century—art fair art.

In November 1990 LIFE magazine published a photograph of a young man named David Kirby — his body wasted by AIDS, his gaze locked on something beyond this world — surrounded by anguished family members as he took his last breaths. The haunting image of Kirby on his death bed, taken by a journalism student named Therese Frare, quickly became the one photograph most powerfully identified with the HIV/AIDS epidemic that, by then, had seen millions of people infected (many of them unknowingly) around the globe ...

Self-taught Canadian photographer Elizabeth Gadd described her photography niche better, perhaps, than anybody else when she said, “I, uh… shoot landscapey stuff… with people in them.”

That, however, is something of an understatement. The 21-year-old photographer’s body of work does, indeed contain “landscapey stuff with people in them,” but that hardly does the spectacular vistas she photographs justice ...

TURKEY, Suruc : A girl stands among mourners during the funeral of a fighter of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Suruc, Turkish southeastern Sanliurfa province, on November 6, 2014. Turkey is pursuing a delicate but dangerous strategy after allowing peshmerga fighters to transit its soil to the besieged Syrian town of Kobane, fearing Kurdish domination of northern Syria but also risking the collapse of the peace process with Turkish Kurds.
