Photography: Amazing Close-Up Photography


Some amazing close-up photography from Caren Alpert.


What’s in our food?

What’s the difference between a bird’s-eye view of a remote vegetable crop and a microscopic swath from a pineapple leaf? How distinct is a pile of table salt from miles and miles of icebergs?

As a food lover and a photographer I answer these questions visually. Using scientific laboratory photo equipment, I journey over the surfaces of both organic and processed foods: my own favorites and America’s over-indulgences. The closer the lens got, the more I saw food and consumers of food (all of us!) as part of a larger eco-system than mere sustenance.

News: News of the World to close

It appears that this Sunday will be the last time the News of the World will be printed.

Will this be just a name change?
Is it just Murdock sidestepping the hacking issues?
Does this mean that the Sun will now have a Sunday edition?
