Forgotten Female Photographers
This sounds like an amazing show. 'Who's Afraid of Women Photographers' features the work of forgotten female photographers — with extraordinary personal stories accompanying their images. See it at the Musée de l'Orangerie and Musée D'Orsay in Paris, October 14 2015 to January 23 2016 — or follow the link above to view a slide show with selections from the exhibition. With thanks to Andrew for the link.
A Meditative Surf-Film Soundtrack for Chilling
Anthology Recordings just released the soundtrack to 'Litmus', the 1996 surf documentary by director and musician Andrew Kidman — and, judging by the sample track, it was well worth the wait. Beautiful music.
A spiced and warming soup, harira features chickpeas, lentils and kale for a substantial and comforting bowl — perfect for chilly autumn evenings.
