Minor White, Nude, Portland Oregon, 1940
From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
From a background in botany and documentary photography, White developed into an artist whose extreme personal investment in the metaphorical significance of photographic form wrought beautiful images swathed in spirituality. He was especially adept at photographing the male nude. Here, as was typical of White, the body’s contours and volumes breathe warmth throughout the image, so that it pulsates with life without attenuating into pure erotica or kitsch. White’s talent for such a transformation permeated all of his work, no matter what the subject-barn, landscape, human form, street scene-so that the spirit and spirituality of living inhabited every corner of his images.
This Map Shows Where You’re Not Allowed to Fly Drones in the US
All laid out in an easy to read map
“Unmanned drones like quadcopters and fixed-wing aircraft are at the center of new airspace regulations by the FAA. While the FAA deliberates on rules and regulations, states, cities and other national organizations have implemented their own no-fly zones. To help people find safe places to fly, we’ve mapped established no-fly areas where drones are not permitted around all major airports, military bases, and national parks across the country. All the no-fly area data we collected to make these maps is now open data under CC-0. Go explore the map”
