Почему в погоне за красотой рождается нетерпимость — Wonderzine — Wonderzine — поток «Мнение»
«За последнюю неделю наше терпение и благодушие испытывалось много раз: то мы удивлялись, как цвет волос актрисы может повлиять на решение смотреть новый фильм с ней, то хватались за лоб, читая обсуждение новости про политику Instagram в отношении толстых. Все это тем удивительнее, что мы касались вопросов внешности, ее корректирования и самооценки не раз и не два, но чувствуем, что оставлять их пока рано. Во-первых, нам важно еще раз напомнить, что научиться принимать собственное тело не означает бездействовать: вот только ни здоровое питание, ни занятия спортом, ни уход за кожей не гарантируют, что у вас вырастут ноги с обложки глянцевого журнала (скорее всего нет). Во-вторых, принять тело означает научиться принимать и окружающих: все мы знаем, как легко осудить случайного прохожего или попавшую в объектив папарацци знаменитость. Так что на этот раз мы размышляем о толерантности: о том, как воспринимать тела (свое и других), почему стоит себя воспитывать и не слишком ли далеко мы забрались в погоне за всем идеальным.»

Documentary Photography and Photojournalism: Still Images of a World in Motion | Writing and Humanistic Studies | MIT OpenCourseWare
This course is an introduction to the great tradition of documentary photography. Students learn to see the world around them in a new way and produce a documentary project. The course requires reading and writing about photography, as well as doing it on a regular basis. The class emphasis is on thinking about why people photograph, what photographs do and do not mean to us, and on doing documentary work, on telling stories with photographs. This is not a technical class, and it should not be considered an "introduction to photography." I work on the assumption that any student signing up for the class has at least a minimal sense of the difference between f stops and T stops, and can find his or her way around a camera. While there will be some technical discussion in class, it will be limited.
