Paolo Pellegrin at Magnum Festival 07

"Photographed last summer in Lebanon while on assignment for the The New York Times, Paolo Pellegrin intimately captured the Lebanese population in the face of the ceaseless Israeli air strikes, revealing the despair of families and friends witnessing the deaths of their loved ones whilst around them their homes were destroyed. In particular Pellegrin documented the aftermath of the attack on the village of Qana in southern Lebanon; including many of the victims' children, he reveals the immense suffering of the civilians."

Iraq Names Project

"Artist Nancy Hiss has embarked on a project to write the names of all dead coalition men and women.

The names will thread their way through the fabric of Portland OR.

Only last names will be listed to honor the sacrifice of individuals & their families.

As you reflect on these names also remember the hundreds of thousands of nameless Iraqis and others who have been scared by this war."

It protects the territory.

Set in Berlin in the late 1980s, toward the end of the Cold War, Wings of Desire follows two angels, Damiel and Cassiel, as they roam the city, unseen and unheard by the people, observing and listening to the diverse thoughts of Berliners: a pregnant woman, a painter, a broken man who thinks his girlfriend no longer loves him.
This is basically what one of my favorites movie is about. That’s why the Berlin Angel (Dam, I forgot his very difficult Germany name) is my favorite sightseeing. My friend Claudio Arriagada, took pictures of the Angel in different times of the year. Really love them.
