Depth of Field: The Movie Poster Brexit Deserves

Photographs, Susan Sontag once famously wrote, “fiddle with the scale of the world.” They tell us only a distortion. They are incomplete, even as they strive to render the frame whole and exact. That does not make them false. Exactly the opposite. Photographs invite meaning, possibility. The best photos, thick with narrative, sweat. It is true that a picture is worth a thousand words. It is also true that a picture is worth a thousand more pictures. One image gives way to another. What are photographs but gateways into parallel realms, memories resurrected, passageways into the familiar? What we see, we have already seen. John MacDougall’s portrait-style capture of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson—taken during …

30 Of The Most Embarrassing Situations People Have Gotten Themselves Into

When Twitter user One study says there’s a (somewhat) quick way to move past life’s most terrible moments. The answer: focusing on everything about the memory except the way it made you feel. “Sometimes we dwell on how sad, embarrassed, or hurt we felt during an event, and that makes us feel worse and worse. This is what happens in clinical depression—ruminating on the negative aspects of a memory,” lead researcher Florin Dolcos wrote. #3 It’s quite different than suppressing the bad memory, which is usually effective only in short term and increases chances of anxiety and depression in the long run.
