The case for massive editorial investment that only benefits the on-platform readership will weaken. The big publishers — at least those that sell scale to advertisers rather than subscriptions to a loyal audience — will become like wire services that operate across many platforms.

It’s a “pastime” in the truest sense of the word in that only a species with so much time to pass could have devised and named it. It’s a sport/game/leisure activity so simple that I always feel vaguely self-conscious actually explaining it out loud: “Well, you, um, try to knock down pins with a ball.” And as a subject, it is probably undeserving of hard contemplative thought or, more germane to what you’re looking at right now, an exploration of its universe via words and photographs.

She shot some in pairs, and several group portraits. The shoots could be intense, with lots of laughing, crying and hugging, but Demme says having several women at each shoot helped put the women at ease, that “as each woman saw the next woman doing it, they knew how to handle themselves.” She also shot video interviews, and encouraged the women to support and converse with each other.
Espinosa, a photographer for the magazine Proceso, fled the state of Veracruz to Mexico City last month, saying that he felt threatened while covering the world of politics. In interviews, he claimed that people were following him, taking photos of him, and harassing him.
Espinosa had decided to leave Veracruz in early June when he noticed his house was being watched and he had been followed, he told the website SinEmbargo, which is devoted to freedom of the press. Espinosa had covered the murders of journalists in Veracruz in recent years, and advocated for the administration of Governor Javier Duarte to investigate the killings. He also complained that members of the local media were taking bribes.
