“There are things to be said about invisible labor in the art world, and things to be said about objectifying women in the service of art that is talking about objectifying women, but the thing I took away from ‘Woman in E’ is this: the systems that oppress us are bigger than us and beyond our control; we can, however, control our complicity. “Ragnar Kjartansson, “Woman in E” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

Time and again, the New York photographer Joel Meyerowitz manages to fish surprising and sometimes peculiar fleeting moments from the stream of everyday happenings. His precise use of color enables him to bring their very individual vividness and pictorial intensity to the fore. His gaze is steered by chance and by his eye for the extraordinary in the everyday. He leads us through the...

“This photo has special meaning to me because I want to sensitize people to save our planet for future generations,” Luisa Aguiar (@luisarosaaguiar) writes. “It was taken at the fishing port of the Mosteiros, S.

Originally believed to be one of four sculptures depicting each season, Winter manifests as an old man because it is the last season of the cale...
