Inexpensive labor

Inexpensive labor from the countryside, important as it is to China’s growth as a tradingnation, is one major facet of its success. Just as important is a rising industrial production capability. China now plays a central role in the global supply chain for the world’s multinational corporations. As a planner or researcher interested in China his pictures also challenge us to think about the personal behind the industrial.

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Your power of persuasion this week is greater than you realize and will enable you to direct a certain current in a key relationship as your ruler Pluto makes a deliberate angle of intent to Mercury in your house of relationships on Wednesday, May 19. All eyes are on you to take the lead and yet if you hesitate at all, someone else just might do it for you. Take control and seize the opportunity to take back the reigns in a situation where you have felt somewhat powerless. Venus, the planet of loving promise moves into fellow water sign Cancer on Thursday, May 20 in your house of faith which has a way of easing a world of worry as you are reminded when you focus on the right things, the right things tend to happen.

Assert your power and assert it well

Wai Khru Tattoo Festival

From his series Wai Khru Tattoo Festival. Traditionally, Thai tattoos are believed to be more than just a decorative art. Recipients believe that each tattoo carries protective properties and it is in search of these that people gather at the temple every spring. The rituals are a complex mix of Buddhist, Hindu, Brahman and Animist beliefs. Devotees come to pay their respects to their religious teachers and to receive tattoos that are created at the hands of these spiritual leaders. It is not only the application of the tattoo that has significance, it is the magical activation of the designs that believers seek. Once applied, the tattoo is believed to offer protection and in a country with an unpredictable political future, such protection is increasingly in demand.

Changjiao Miao

Changjiao Miao people live in the mountains 2,000 meters above sea level in 12 villages located close to each other with a total population of 4,000. On a typical day, the women simply wrap their hair behind their head around a sharp-ended wooden board. They wear the long horns only on holidays and during festivals, together with the decorative hair bun made of linen, wool and small amounts of ancestral hair. The heavy ornament places extra strain on their neck and waist, leading to their typical walking posture. The hair bun can weigh up to 2 kilograms. The most precious dowry gift a mother can give to her daughter is ancestral hair. Guizhou, China.

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This is a make it or break it week for your most significant relationships, but that isn’t news to you, is it? As Mercury turns around in your partnership sector after 5 weeks of going back and forth here, you’ll find you have some decisions to make. These should be made together, with a mutual respect for each other’s needs, and to the extent that you can do that, you can take the situation to a solid new beginning. If you can’t be mutual though, maybe it’s time to move on. Either way, there’s a new Moon set to take place here on Thursday, promising a new chapter. Take Monday and Tuesday to determine what you truly want. NOT what your partner wants, NOT what your Mother wants, but what you and only you truly want.

Believe you can have it and it’s yours.


From the series Benaras: 24 hours. Surya Puja

Varanasi or Benaras, also known as kashi, is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Benaras’s prominence in hindu mythology is virtually unrevealed. According to the “Vamana Purana”, the Varuna and Assi rivers originated from the body of primordial Person at the beginning of time itself. The tract of land lying between them is believed to be, “Varanasi”, the holiest of all pilgrimages.

Terminal Mirage

From his series Terminal Mirage, aerial photos of the Great Salt Lake in northwestern Utah.

At times, it is the fourth largest terminal lake in the world, with its status changing with the rise and fall of its depth and square acreage. The lake’s most distinctive aspect is, of course, its exceptional richness in five major elements (sodium, magnesium, potassium, chloride, and sulfate) as well as other elements in lesser quantities. The naturally occurring minerals in the soil, leach into the water, and are concentrated in varying strengths in the lake. As each mineral element has its own color, the density of the colors of the lake relate in part to the levels of concentrations present at any given time of specific elements.

From his series Guano: for thousands of years, seabirds ate anchovies and then crapped all over islands off the coast of Peru. It got up to a hundred and fifty feet deep and was the world’s best fertilizer; wars were fought over it as thousands worked the guano mines. Soon they hit rock, Fritz Haber invented synthetic fertilizers and the party was over.

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

A pivotal moment produces the huge reckoning that’s on tap for you this week, but don’t let that scare you for one moment. This is your week. If you’re honest you will be able to see more clearly than ever what it is you want the most from your partnership situation and you’ll speak your Truth and get so much closer to where you want to be. This moment has been a long time coming. Mars, your other ruler, has been sitting up in your house of goals for months now, and he is nearly ready to take you into brand new territory. This week the Sun squares Mars from your relationship sector and that change that’s been hammering at your heart finally manifests itself. Don’t worry that Mercury is retrograde.

The action you take makes perfect, workable sense out of your entire past.

From the exhibit Beware the cost of war, that consists of violent and often gruesome images from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict taken by both Israeli and Palestinian photographers; without words, the pictures will be freer to speak for themselves.
