Free Leonard Peltier

Free Leonard Peltier
The government under pretext of security and progress, liberated us from our land, resources, culture, dignity and future. They violated every treaty they ever made with us. I use the word “liberated” loosely and sarcastically, in the same vein that I view the use of the words “collateral damage” when they kill innocent men, women and children. They describe people defending their homelands as terrorists, savages and hostiles . . . My words reach out to the non-Indian: Look now before it is too late—see what is being done to others in your name and see what destruction you sanction when you say nothing. --Leonard Peltier, Annual Message January 2004 (Leonard Peltier is now serving 31st year as an internationally recognized Political Prisoner of the United States Government)

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

Miss Universe Visits Guantanamo: 'A Loooot Of Fun!'

The current 'Miss Universe' Dayana Mendoza (formerly Miss Venezuela) and 'Miss America' Crystal Stewart visited US troops stationed in Guantanamo Bay on March 20th, the New York Times reports. Here's Mendoza's account of the visit from her pageant blog last Friday. She says the trip "was a loooot of fun!"

This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience...All the guys from the Army were amazing with us. We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting. We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.

The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)

I didn't want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.

Under the theme "Electric Vision", the 7th edition of the BMW-Paris Photo Prize worth 12,000 euros, has been awarded to contemporary Hungarian artist Gábor Ősz who is represented by Loevenbruck Gallery in Paris.

Born in 1962 and based in Amsterdam, Gábor Ősz is an important figure on the contemporary Hungarian art scene. Uncluttered in style, his work deals mainly with the observation and relationship between man and the space around him. He uses the camera obscura and the stenope as processes by which he records the surrounding space and the effects of light on photosensitive paper.

Entitled "Permanent Daylight," (204) the winning work is part of a series he made in a caravan which he turned into a camera obscura and parked next to a cluster of agricultural greenhouses. The image was made over four successive nights during which the light emanating from these strange, almost unearthly structures slowly reacted with the photosensitive material.

Said Michel Frizot, photography historian and member of the 2010 jury: "The originality of Gábor Ősz's practice is unlike certain standards of today, owing to the fact that he works slowly and without pomposity. His image seems to us to be totally in tune with the theme "Electric vision."

Inspired by BMW's Concept ActiveE, the theme "Electric Vision" pays tribute to electricity as it shapes the technological future of our societies and transforms our vision of the world.

Carlo Van de Roer, 2010 BMW – Paris Photo Prize special mention

The jury also gave a special mention to Carlos Van de Roer, a photographer from New Zealand born in 1975 and represented by M+B Gallery (Los Angeles). In his work entitled "Miranda July, 2009" he tries to capture the aura of his model using an enhanced Polaroid camera.

The works of the 20 finalists, selected among 52 projects submitted by galleries participating in Paris Photo, are exhibited at the fair from 18th to 21st November 201.
