This week, we spent a lot of time recovering from the news of last week, and part of that meant starting with the basics — exploring what it means to be at home, what it means to have a body, a legacy.
Naomieh Jovin took the time to talk with us about how photography helped her overcome shame, while Julie Blackmon has been using her photos to process what the present moment of unending weirdness feels like. The Smithsonian has a truly great roundup of photo books that includes a robust sneak peek of images for each title.
The AP has terrifying photos of the aftermath of a volcanic eruption in the Philippines that feel apocalyptic. As a bit of escapism, we highly recommend delving into the street photography of Ruth Orkin with the Guardian. Joshua Kissi is looking forward to a bright future in portraiture in an interview with W Magazine, while Moises Saman is looking back at the activists from the Arab Spring and how they are still fighting for freedom.
