Gay Pride 🏳️‍🌈Day 1983, by Alon Reininger/Contact. Alon had been photographing the gay community starting in ‘81 and was uniquely situated to learn of an unfolding pandemic striking the gay community. Alon, and soon after, Frank Fournier, were two of barely a handful of people documenting HIV/AIDS from the earliest.

Flag Day, once postponed, from its original date in May was permitted to proceed today with more or less anticipated results. Police forcefully tried to keep the Palestinians from reacting to ultranationalists bent on provocation. The result was 17 injured Palestinians and the seemingly indelible impression of intractable disturbances forever.

June 14, 1982 Argentine soldiers surrendered in their bloody war with the British over the Falkland Islands.

The conflict lasted 74 days and ended with an Argentine surrender returning the islands to British control. In total, 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military personnel, and three Falkland Islanders died during the hostilities.

Argentine photojournalist Adriana Groisman’s 20 year project breathed life into the scarred and long silent battlefields seen here. From the
Bomb craters at Mount Tumbledown, site of a battle on June 13th and 14th 1982 with 32 Argentine casualties and nine British. Five miles from Stanley, East Falkland to the Site of the sinking of the Argentine War Cruiser General Belgrano on May 2nd 1982 where 323 Argentineans died. The Belgrano was hit by 2 torpedoes fired from the British nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror. The Belgrano was outside of the exclusion zone determined by the British. South West from the Falkland Islands. Later aspects of the project had Adriana photograph and interview former British and Argentine combatants as part of a reconciliation phase of the project which has been exhibited in the UK and Argentina. Of course the works culminated in a massive book “Voices of the Tempest” available on Amazon but only 5 copies left.

It seems that nearly weekly documentary filmmakers are drawn to Contact for its rich historical archive. For this film, the director utilized dozens of images from Alon Reininger’s extensive Menachem Begin Archive. Begin was Alon’s next door neighbor growing up in Tel Aviv so access to Begin as a politician was never an issue. Begin was nearly as interesting a character as Alon, so this should be a fascinating film!

05/31/2021

On this Memorial Day, I call your attention to a book - a 15 year odyssey by Lori Grinker to examine the veteran experience long after the war is over.

Afterwar: Veterans from a World in Conflict is a culmination of 15 years spent photographing and interviewing men, women and children who have been on the frontlines of every major conflict of the past century. It is a portrait documenting the deep physical and psychological effects on the veterans whose bodies and minds are changed forever. It is not the “politics” of a particular war that the people in this work represent, but rather a portrayal of our culture of warring and the aftermath of war in human terms.

Organized in reverse chronological order, from the most recently ended conflicts to the early part of the century, the book includes Sri Lanka, Liberia, Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Israel-Palestine, El Salvador, Cambodia, Eritrea-Ethiopia, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Lebanon, the Falkland Islands, Vietnam, the Middle East, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Algeria, Indochina, Korea, China, World War II, Spain and World War I.

Available from Amazon or signed copies and limited edition prints from Lori herself.

32 years ago, May 30 - the building and display of The Goddess of Democracy in Tiananmen Square was constructed over four days made of foam and paper mache over metal armature. Standing 33 ft tall the idea was to make the statue so large as to make it hard and conspicuous to dismantle by authorities. When the govt launched the crackdown on the protests on June 4 neither this statue nor the students stood a chance.

Helio Castroneves joined the exclusive club of four-time Indianapolis 500 winners Sunday, and then scaled the fence at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in front of the largest crowd since the start of the pandemic.

The Brazilian joined A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears, his former mentor at Team Penske, as the only four-time winners of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Mears was the last driver to join the club in 1991.

Castroneves won his third 500 in 2009 and has been chasing win No. 4 ever since.
