Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end.
O churl. Drunk all, and left no friendly drop

Wikipedia on Shirin Neshat (sic everything):

Shirin Neshat has become one of the most well known Persian artist within the Western artistic world. While she lives in New York City, she addresses a global audience. Her earlier work was symbolic of her personal grief, anxiety and the pain of separation from her home country. It took a neutral position on Islam. As time progressed and the Islamic regime of Iran became more intrusive and oppressive, Neshat’s artwork became more boldly political and subversively critical against it.

She seeks to, according an article in Time, “untangle the ideology of Islam through her art.” Her current cinematic work continues to express the poetic, philosophical, and metaphorical as well as complex levels of intellectual abstraction.

I doubt this photo of Nneka is that new-ish, but either way, HELL YES.


“He is all business, laconic, and deadly.”

I’m a little late with this one, but if you haven’t already, go check out Craig F. Walker’s photo essay on Ian Fisher for the Denver Post.

Walker tracks Fisher from his high school graduation, to his enlistment in the army, his training, his year-long tour in Iraq, his life overseas, and his return home. Amazing stuff.
