This week, Lightbox posted an essay by the photographer Emanuele Satolli, who spent a year in Russia photographing and filming people who are addicted to the homemade drug krokodil. It may be the most woeful, bleak material I've ever worked with. Here's my edit of Emanuele's footage.
A few weeks ago I went to Toronto to see the David Bowie Is exhibition. It was freaking amazing.
The best, best part was seeing a boy in his early teens, kinda trailing behind his parents looking bored, until he arrived at the Life on Mars display of Bowie's blue suit next to a screen playing the video. He stood, transfixed, and watched the whole thing three times in a row without blinking.
It's coming to Chicago next year and I'm probably going to go to that one, too. You should plan on it.
I won a Front Page Award from the Newswomen's Club of New York for my work on Time's One Dream multimedia project! Two other Time women, Rana Foroohar and Kate Pickert, won awards for their great reporting. It was inspiring to meet so many talented women, and to see many of my colleagues from previous jobs. What a great town for journalism.
I think one's website is where one puts these things; photographer Pearl Gabel took this at the gala.
Today we posted a great video with legendary LIFE editor Richard B. Stolley, who acquired the infamous Zapruder home movie of the JFK assassination. My colleague Vaughn Wallace did an incredible job interviewing Mr. Stolley and doing intensive research for the project, and I had the opportunity to edit the piece. Here's the remarkable story.
And here's an essay I wrote about the experience of watching the assassination, over and over.
I'm late in posting this, but my colleague Jim Fields made the best mini-doc recently for Time about Lonni Sue Johnson, an artist with profound amnesia. It's fascinating, and you'll fall in love with Lonni Sue and her family.
