This book is David Bailey’s (born 1938) portrayal of the landscapes and personalities of the densely forested Naga Hills, part of the complex mountain barrier between India and Myanmar (Burma), and home to the Naga tribes (“those with pierced ears” in Burmese). Bailey had hoped to visit the Naga Hills since he was a young man, but access had been continually restricted because of war and unrest--until 2012, when that wish finally became a reality. Bailey had initially wanted to photograph the story of the last headhunters in the region, but in typical Bailey style, he improvised when things didn’t quite go to plan: he recalls for example cutting though difficult terrain (at times needing to walk beside the four-wheel drives), becoming lost for hours, only to be discovered by armed men who directed him to a party at a guard post, where he danced the night away with the soldiers.

This book explores alternative ways of understanding Havana both as an imagined political construct and as a cultural product. It provides a vision of how and why we see the city as we do and evaluates the ways in which images of Havana have been (mis)constructed in the global imaginary. Bringing out interactions and tensions between real and imaginary spaces, it examines the political implications of unique spatial and metaphorical representations of the city and explores the crucial role that image-makers and cultural producers have played in the global perception of Havana through photography, material culture and documentary film.

"Deux ans après le début de la guerre en Irak, Gerhard Richter publie War Cut, oeuvre ouverte où l'artiste confronte son langage au chaos de la guerre. Le grand peintre allemand y confronte deux "visions" des événements : des articles de presse d'un coté, publiés pendant les deux premiers jours du conflit en Irak. Et de l'autre des images. Un reportage de guerre ? Pas du tout : 216 photographies d'une seule et meme peinture abstarite. En gros plan ou en flou, l'artiste variant sans cesse la focale et son point de vue sur les coulées ou les trames épaisses de sa peinture verte, jaune, rouge, orange.
