The Keepers of The Stones

Salisbury Plain, in England, is known for its concentration of prehistoric structures, most notably Stonehenge, the circle of megaliths famous for the mystery surrounding its purpose. Despite the fickle British weather, including gale-force winds and lashing rains, the photographer George Steinmetz travelled to central England to photograph the stones during the vernal equinox, one of four open-access days during which pilgrims can walk around the site. In this week’s magazine,Laura Miller writes about her experience at Stonehenge on the winter solstice, another open-access day.

Identity at Play: Basketball in Mexico

The following was written by photographer Jorge Santiago, a documentary photographer currently based in southeastern Ohio, about his long-term project “Identity at Play.”  Santiago grew up in a small village called Guelato de Juárez in Oaxaca, Mexico’s Sierra Norte. The village is famous for being the birthplace of Mexican President Benito Juárez (b. 1806), but also because it’s the site of an annual basketball tournament. Santiago is still working on the project but was happy to share a few of his images thus far:

“Like many of my fellow villagers, I grew up idolizing the star players from my village and others. I saved up money for basketball shoes and spent most of my spare time on the basketball court which, as one of the few flat spaces in hilly and terraced Serrano villages, was not only a site of play but a public gathering space.

The Intricate, Beautiful Patterns of Civilization Seen From Above

umans love to tease signals from noise. We see a man in the moon, Mother Mary in a piece of toast, Lady Luck in a winning run at the casino. Alex MacLean deftly plays to this tendency in his stunning aerial photos that reveal patterns in seemingly mundane things.

MacLean leans from the window of an airplane to snap tightly arranged photos of urban, industrial and wild environments. The vantage point is low enough to make out the people and places on the ground, but high enough to see their organization within the broader landscape. His photos provide our appetite for patterns several layers of interpretation to chew on, while exploring the impact of things like urban sprawl, pollution and resource extraction.

“Through sort of abstract and engaging patterns, those things will draw people into it, and hopefully think about these issues,” he says. “It really is about combining art and information. Some of it is sort of subliminal–you can’t quite put your finger on it but it sort of draws you in and engages you.”
