Nadine Boughton: The Modess Women | LENSCRATCH

One of the taboo subjects in any arena is….well, menstration. Nadine Boughton tackles the subject with humor and beauty in her new series, The Moddess Woman. Her project reexamines a 1950’s ad campaign for Modess sanitary napkins, a campaign that in truth had little to do with bodily functions and more to do with glamour and mystique. She re-imagines the ads with 21st century consideration, and with her unique ability to transform the past.  Nadine’s work has been well celebrated over the years, including a number of recent exhibitions. She has eight pieces in the current exhibit, Domestic Affairs: Domesticity, Identity, and the Home, at the Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI, running through May 6, 2018, her work is featured in Outspoken: Seven Women Photographers showing at the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts, Providence, RI, through April 13. 2018. Plus she will have images in the new book by Robert Hirsch, Light and Lens, Photography in the Digital Age, due out May 14, 2018, published by Focal Press.

The Magic of Books Where Photography Meets Essays – The New York Times

Design-wise, the most famous collaboration between a writer and a photographer did not end up looking like much of a collaboration at all. Walker Evans contributed a preface to the 1960 reissue of “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,” the study of poor tenant farmers in Alabama, originally published in 1941; “Walker” crops up a number of times in James Agee’s text, but a formal separation is maintained between the tenderly austere photographs of families and their homes — printed at the beginning — and the 400 pages of Agee’s highly wrought, much-agonized-over text. This, for Gore Vidal, was no bad thing, because it left Evans’s “austere” photos untainted by what “good-hearted, soft-headed admirers of the Saint James (Agee) version” so loved about the sharecroppers’ gospel.

The 2018 Pulitzer Prize Winners

Including, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, whose in-depth reporting on Dylann Roof for GQ won for feature writing (Ghansah also won a National Magazine Award for this story). And the staff of the Cincinnati Enquirer, which provided a brutal examination of the effects of heroin during a week-long period.
