    Phan Thu Trang uses heavy knife strokes to create these bright and pointed Vietnamese landscapes. While seemingly naïve and decorative, true to character for many Vietnamese paintings, Trang takes a minimalist, deconstructive approach that simplifies each scene to its geometric and tonal essentials. From there she draws from her memories of growing up in Hanoi and the Northern Villages, describing the people and feelings she experienced as a child.

  4. "We were taking the black young men who had been crippled by our society and sending them eight thousand miles away to guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia and East Harlem. So we have been repeatedly faced with the cruel irony of watching Negro and white boys on TV screens as they kill and die together for a nation that has been unable to seat them together in the same schools. So we watch them in brutal solidarity burning the huts of a poor village, but we realize that they would hardly live on the same block in Chicago."

    Acid attack survivors in India model new clothing range for powerful photoshoot

    Survivors of acid attacks in India have become the face of a new clothing range designed by a woman who had acid thrown in her face while she was asleep four years ago.Delhi-based designer Rupa and her friends Rita, Sonam, Laxmi and Chanchal modelled the clothes from her new range, Rupa Designs, for photographer Rahul Saharan.

    Rupa suffered extensive injuries when her stepmother threw acid in her face while she was sleeping in 2008.

    She was allegedly left without any medical aid for six hours before her uncle found her and transported her to hospital, where she underwent eleven operations and spent three months being cared for.

  14. Untitled (Blue, Green, & Brown): oil on canvas: Mark Rothko: 1952 


    The TV said the planes have hit the buildings.
    & I said Yes because you asked me to stay.
    Maybe we pray on our knees because the lord
    only listens when we’re this close
    to the devil. There is so much I want to tell you.
    How my greatest accolade was to walk
    across the Brooklyn Bridge & not think
    of flight. How we live like water: touching
    a new tongue with no telling
    what we’ve been through. They say the is sky is blue
    but I know it’s black seen through too much air.
    You will always remember what you were doing
    when it hurts the most. There is so much
    I want to tell you—but I only earned
    one life. & I took nothing. Nothing. Like a pair of teeth
    at the end. The TV kept saying The planes…
    The planes…& I stood waiting in the room
    made from broken mocking birds. Their wings throbbing
    into four blurred walls. Only you were there.
    You were the window.
