The Internet is a new frontier in the struggle for human rights. Governments – with the help of some of the biggest IT companies in the world – are cracking down on freedom of expression.
Amnesty International, with the support of The Observer, is launching a campaign to show that online or offline the human voice and human rights are impossible to repress.
From war to fashion photography. Oh well… If there isn’t room in the world for art and beauty then what are we living for? Gray Scott‘s photographs use subtle Photoshop processing to make his models appear like showroom dummies. He’s also good with colour adjustment and blurring as well, creating some very effective pastiches of photographic styles from earlier decades. Loretta Lux takes a similar approach with her portraits.
