    10. Breaker boys working in Ewen Breaker of Pennsylvania Coal Co. (1910)            Photograph by Lewis W. Hine   What Charles Dickens did with words for the underage toilers of London, Lewis Hine did with photographs for the youthful laborersin the united States. In 1908 the National Child Labor Committee was already campaigning to put the nation's two million young workers back in school when the group hired Hine. The Wisconsin native traveled to half the states, capturing images of children working in mines, mills and on the streets. Here he has photographed "breaker boys," whose job was to seperate coal from slate, in South Pittston, Pa. Onc again, pictures swayed the public in a way cold statistics had not, and the country enacted laws banning child labor.   9. Lynching (1930)                                                                                                        Photograph from Bettman/Corbis A mob of 10,000 whites took sledgehammers to the county jailhouse doors to get at these two young blacks accused of raping a white girl;the girl's uncle saved the life of a third by proclaiming the man's innocence. Although this was Marion, Ind., most of the nearly 5,000 lynchings documented between Reconstruction and the late 1960s were perpetrated in the South. (Hangings, beating and mutilations were called the sentence of "judge Lynch,") Some lynching photos were made into postcards designed to boost white supremacy, but the tortured bodies and grotesquely happy crowds ended up revoltoing as many as they scared. Today the images rremind us that we have not come as far from barbarity as we'd like to think.   8. Little Rock Arkansas (1957)      Photograph from Bettman/Corbis   It was the fourth school year since segregation had been outlawed by the Supreme Court. Things were not going well, and some southerners accused the national press of distorting matters. This picture, however, gave irrefutable testimony, as Elizabeth Eckford strides through a gantlet of white students, including Hazel Bryant (mouth open the widest), on her way to Little Rock's Central High.    7. Biafra (1969)                                                                                                                                             Photography by Don McCullin   When the Igbos of eastern Nigeria declared themselves independant in 1967, Nigeria blockaded their fielding country-Biafra. In three years of war, more than one million people died, mainly of hunger. In famine, children who lack protein often get the diesease kwashiorkor, which causes their muscles to waste away and their bellies to protrude. War photographer Don McCullin drew attention to the tragedy. "I was devasted by the sight of 900 children living in one camp in utter squalor at the point of death,"he said." i lost all interest in photographing soldiers in action."The world community intervened to help Biafra, and leamed key lessons about dealing with massive hunger exacerbated by war a problem that still defies simple solutions.     6. Munich olympic village (1972)       Photograph by Kurt Strumpf   Terrorism is always disturbing, but when it plays out in an arena whose purpose is to augment global peace, it seems yet more ghastly. The athletes from 121 nations had assembled in Munich for the 1972 Olympics when, on September 5 at 4:30 a.m., five men dressed in tracksuits toting weapons in their gym bags scaled the fence of the Olympic Village and joined up with three others already inside. They rapped on the door of the Israeli wrestling coach, shot him and a weightlifter dead, then took nine Israelis hostage. The abductors, who claimed to be from a Palestinian guerrilla group called Black September, demanded that Israel release zoo Arab prisoners. By three o'clock the next morning, after hours of tenterhook negotiations, a botched rescue attempt left the nine Israelis dead, along with five terrorists and a policeman. Three terrorists were captured. This portrait of a goon haunts anyone who remembers the scene, and, for those who were born later, displays all too well the dark hand of terrorism.      5. Exxon Waldez Oil Spill (1989)                                                                                                                                                           Photograph by John S. Lough   On March 24. the Exxon Valdez ran aground in Alaska's Prince William Sound, and io.8 million gallons of crude flowed into the bay, causing the worst maritime environmental disaster in U.S. history. A quarter million seabirds, 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbor seals. 25o bald eagles and more than zo killer whales died, and 1.30o miles of shoreline was fouled. The public outcry led to a U.S. law demanding double-hull construction in future tankers, and a jury ordered Exxon to pay billions, a verdict the company is still fighting. Meanwhile, in Alaska, more oil washes up every year.      4. Missing Milk Carton (1984)                                                                                                                                                          Photograph by Robert Frieder                                                                                                                                                           Johnny Gosch was a 12.year old from West Des Moines who vanished while delivering papers in 1982. Juanita Estevez, 15, of Yuba City, Calif., disappeared on her way to school in 1984. these were the first two kids to be pictured on a milk carton. Child abduction was becoming a growing nightmare, and families and authorities were eager to try any method. Since then, postcards with photos of missing children have been widely distributed by mail, and have proved fruitful: One in six of the kids in these and other photo efforts are recovered. As for Juanita and Johnny: She escaped from her abductors in 1986; he is still missing.   3. The Falling Soldier (1936)                                                                                                                                                                     Photograph by Robert Capa   It is perhaps the most famous war photograph of all time and it is certainty one of the most controversial. Loyofisr Militiaman at the Moment of Death. Cerro Mariano, September 5, 1976 is either a shockingly intimate depiction of a Spanish Republican soldier breathing his last during his country's civil war, as LIFE believed in '37 and most observers still maintain, or it is staged. as a British historian first argued in 1975. Either way, the image has long had a massive impact. In his zooz biography of the storied Capa, Alex Kershaw wrote that the 'truth- of the photo resides in its presentation of death: The Falling Soldier, authentic or fake. is ultimately a record of Capa's political bias and idealism ... Indeed, he would soon come to experience the brutalizing insanity and death of Illusions that all witnesses who get close enough to the 'romance' of war Inevitably confront."   2. Chicago Fire (1871)                                                                                                                                                                         Photograph from Corbis   The summer had been bone.thy. and on the evening of October 8, wind whipped wildly through the Windy City. Whether Mrs. O'leary's cow kicked the lantern, or a visitor dropped his pipe, or a cinder from a neighbor's chimney landed on the roof, the barn belonging to Pal and Catherine O'Leary of 13/ De Koven Street was soon engulfed. and when gusts blew the flames northward, so was much of Chicago. A third of the city was lost. including the downtown area; more than 2cio were killed. Urban scientists began to rethink their largely wooden infrastructures, and the notion of charity drives for the victims of disaster took hold.    1. Migrant Mother (1936)                                                                                          Photograph by Dorothea Lange     This California farmworker. age p. had just sold her tent and the tires off her car to buy food for her seven kids. The family was living on scavenged vegetables and wild birds. Working for the federal government. Dorothea Lange took pictures like this one to document how the Depression colluded with the Dust Bowl to ravage lives. Along with the writing of her economist husband. Paul Taylor. tange's work helped convince the public and the government of the need to help field hands. Lange later said that this woman. whose name she did not ask.

    Some say Shakespeare’s plays are evergreen, they will never come out of fashion. But what has changed since his first play Julius Caesar was staged at the Globe Theatre in 1599?   Female roles were played by men You may have heard of that in the 17th century England there were no actresses. Women were not allowed to perform in public theatres in England until 1660: quite an exception if we consider how much actresses were appreciated elsewhere in Europe, already bordering into stardom: think of Isabella Andreini in Italy or Armande Béjart in France. Not in England, though, where acting was not considered safe and morally appropriate for women. As a consequence, male characters were always played by boys or young men:  even the heavenly Ophelia in Hamlet or the feminine and fierce Desdemona in Othello.  Male actors were dressed in female clothes and had to wear heavy make-up to simulate a velvet like, elegant pale skin. It is said, although it is contested, that early make up artists were hired as well. Sometimes, hogs bones made into powder were blended with poppy oil to obtain a white paint which was then applied on the face. More often, however, the pale effect was given by the ‘ceruse’, a mixture of vinegar and lead: it was not uncommon that the boy actors met an untimely death by poisoning by this substance as it is extremely toxic.     Everyone could attend the Globe In The Globe Theatre, the theatre where most of Shakespeare’s plays were performed, everyone could afford to watch a play, unlike in other London’s theatres.  For one penny -the price of a loaf of bread at the time- everyone could buy a ticket amongst the ‘groundlings’, standing just around stage.. Of course, wealthier people also attended -they would get comfortable seats under cover. This way we could say the Globe was “democratic” as it tried to serve everyone while the quality of the plays and performance remained high. The Globe Theatre decided to keep this policy, as even today there are 700 standing tickets for every performance.   Actors didn’t learn a script In the Elizabethan era plays were a very last minute business, organized rather hectically. Actors didn’t have much time for rehearsing and many of them played into several plays as well as different parts at a time. For this reasons, actors were not given the full script,  only their lines,   What’s more an actor’s part also contained their lines and their ‘cues’ – the last words spoken by another actor before their own. “Cue acting” was popular and apparently didn’t hinder the success of most of Shakespeare's work.     There was no real copyright In Shakespeare’s time copyright rules  did not exist: the Statute of Anne, the first copyright law of some sort, was enacted almost 100 years after his death. Therefore, it was quite common that rival theatre companies would send “spies” to attend Shakespeare’s plays and then make unauthorised copies of them, to edit, sum up and perform them elsewhere: obviously without paying the Bard what he was due. On the other hand, many contemporary scholars argue that Shakespeare himself wouldn’t have survived today’s copyright laws, as his way of sourcing was quite “free”.

    An age old practice, graffiti holds special significance as one of the elements of hip hop culture. Graffiti as an urban art form has existed since at least the 1950s,the link between hip hop and graffiti evolved as a competition, much like the dance moves of the hip hop culture.            Graffiti in hip hop began as a way of "tagging" for one's crew/gang, and developed during the 1970s on the subways of New York, and later expanded to the city walls themselves. Graffiti began to show up on subways in New York and other cities as a form of expression of the culture who listened to rap music.   Graffiti is considered one of the four elements of hip hop (along with emceeing, DJing, and B-Boying).

    It’s1998. Monica Mendez Aineros lands in England from Galicia, leaving the warm colors of Spain for the colder, greyish shades of Northern Europe. She doesn’t know yet that photography is going to become a key element in her life. Fast forward 5 years and Monica is now a successful photographer who has found a rewarding environment in London. But Spain remains a strong influence in her work: many of her exhibitions pay homage to the traditions and people of Galicia, her native land.  We had the chance to meet her in the British Capital and ask her about her story, her work and how you turn a passion into a full time job. I read your story. It’s particularly fascinating to learn how you started. Definitely it was not the usual route, was it? Indeed. My passion for photography started when I was still living in Spain. I taught myself the basics of photography with the help of some magazines. Then I borrowed an old Olympus camera from a friend and began shooting.  But then photography fell off the back of your mind for a while. Until you decided it was time to move to the UK… Yes. I took the hard decision of leaving, for the first time, my small village in Galicia. When I arrived in England I didn’t speak the language so I began working as an au-pair and then in a residential home for ex-servicemen and women. It was while working there that I enrolled in a photography course. Once the course was over I started working in entertainment photography, mainly red carpet and film premiers. Then I was given the chance to work as a press photographer in Aberdeen. So I packed all my stuff and I moved up to the North Sea. After one year as a press photographer and a good number of images featured in the national papers, I moved back to London, starting my freelancer career and putting together my exhibitions. This is how my interest for photography slowly turned into a passion and then my full time job! What photographers inspire you and why? The first photographers who inspired me were Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus (the iconic photographer interpreted by Nicole Kidman in the critically acclaimed movie Fur, in 2007), Annie Leibovitz, Sebastião Salgado among many others. I particularly like photographers who do documentary or street photography.     Photographers inspire us and allow us to build our own vision. When it comes to take photos for a living our vision may clash with the one that clients’ have. To what extent do you compromise your vision when working for a client? On the other hand, have you ever had a client who was unhappy because you didn’t want to make compromises? Working with clients is always very challenging. You need to be clear from the first minute you talk to a client, so there won’t be surprises later. When a client starts asking for something that I don’t do, because it’s not my style, then I tell them. At that precise moment. It is better to stop before it is too late. This way you avoid having problems and dealing with complaints from clients. It is very important to keep an open communication from the very beginning. On the day of the shooting I normally talk to them before starting to take the pictures. I explain what is going to happen and what we are going to do, so that they know what to expect. If you do that, you avoid a lot of trouble. Listening to clients it’s also very important to get to know their needs and what they like. To sum up, communication and respect are pivotal to keep clients happy. On the topic of gear: what cameras do you use? I use a Canon EOS 6D and a 5D. I own a few different lenses with different focal length. Most challenging thing in your photographer’s life? Marketing. Still struggling with it!  Nowadays with the big influence of social media channels, as a photographer you have to learn a lot of things. Keeping up with all the social media apps, with editing and writing is really hard for me. I’m a photographer and I love taking pictures. It’s incredibly hard to keep up to date with all the rest! Yes, it’s true! It’s difficult to keep up with all the things which don’t relate to your core activity. You literally have to learn everything anew, and you can’t avoid it. By the way, you made me think of how photography and technology are deeply related today. Some photographers are strongly again retouching and photoshopping their work. Others make a strong use of retouching, like the Italian fashion photographer Giovanni Gastel, who said “being able to master Photoshop is as important as taking pictures.” In an interview he said that “Taking a good picture is easy. Taking a great picture is much more difficult . In order to take the latter kind of pictures you need to know how to process the image.You need to fully master the technique (...) knowing how to retouch a photograph is pivotal. Mastering tools like Photoshop is very difficult and equally important. I had to learn to use it. You need to control the tools to take great pictures. The machines contain an aesthetic and you have to learn to find the limits of the system you use. Of course , discovering the limits of Photoshop is not as easy as it is constantly changing. (...) Taking a great picture has become more difficult because in fact you need to keep your skills constantly updated. Photoshop doesn’t facilitate the life of the photographer, it makes it more difficult!” So basically, the technique of taking pictures evolves - and you need to evolve as well. Where do you stand? I do agree that taking a good picture is easy, but taking a great picture that stands out is difficult and challenging. Most of the great photographers have been recognised for excelling in the latter. I am not a big fan of heavy retouching. I do minimal retouching to my images. With my personal work I only use the basic of photoshop such as levels, contrast and a few more tools. For wedding and portraiture jobs I usually do a bit more of retouching, but nothing too extreme. I like pictures that look as natural as possible. When you look at an image and you can see it has been heavily retouched it kind of loses interest to me, it doesn’t have the same effect. One thing is taking a great picture on camera, and another thing is to make a good picture with processing. I personally prefer the first option, good picture on camera and then simple photoshopping. Nowadays almost any picture can change dramatically if you’re skilled at photoshop, even the bad ones. I guess it’s up to your personal taste to decide, I don’t judge anyone who does heavy retouching but it just doesn’t work for me. You also do portraits. Any tips you use to break the ice with your subjects? Portraits are challenging, especially when you work with people who are not used to have their pictures taken. Before I start shooting I talk to them and I explain what we we would be doing, this way they relax and they know what’s going to happen. Taking small breaks every now and then works for me too. One final question, that is going to be interesting for many young photographers who just started. How do you look for clients? As you said before, you need to learn and struggle with social media. Any other tips? A lot of my clients are referrals, they are coming from other clients. I do also use Facebook, as I said. And of course I have a website.
