On Tuesday I headed to the Royal Geographic Society, in London, to view this year's Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition. More than 200 fabulous travel photographs are displayed in the exhibition, which extends beyond the RGS's gallery and out onto the terrace and garden of this famous establishment.
This year marks the 17th edition of the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, one of Europe's most prestigious photography awards. It is presented to "a living photographer, of any nationality, for a specific body of work in an exhibition or publication format, which has significantly contributed to photography in Europe."
The history of propaganda is just one aspect of the British Library's new exhibition entitled Propaganda: Power and Persuasion. In a series of six sections, it deploys some 200 exhibits - pamphlets, posters, ephemera such as coins and banknotes, quotations, film and interviews - to explore the different ways in which propaganda has been used.
The word 'tolerance' in fact does not do enough justice to the largely subscribed-to notion in Britain that all men are indeed created equal, and so too women, gays and Jehovah's Witnesses. The word I'm looking for is 'acceptance'. It is an accepting culture, an embracing culture, a friendly, open culture.
Elvis's manager Col. Parker picked up the Beatles, Barrow, Brian Epstein, and two roadies, and they travelled in a convoy of three limos. After being waved through the gates by members of the 'Memphis Mafia' and passing a Rolls Royce and Harley Davidsons, the small group entered Elvis's mansion and found Elvis in a huge circular room, surrounded by about 20 people.
