This week photographer Steve Pyke tells us about his Philosopher portrait series and your host goes to France in search of photo books. Plus a remix of the three photographers we featured last year in the “Beyond the Fruited Plain” series: Richard Misrach, Alec Soth, and Naomi Harris.
Historian Jill Lepore talks Tea Party History. Alec Soth photographs from the Middle, Andrea S discovers the Middle, and your host fears the Middle! Plus TMi’s “Chris” learns more about who is really pulling the strings.
“G.S.” was one of the first friends I made when I moved to Bozeman, Montana many years ago. The story he told me about how bad karma brought him from Devon, England to the C.U.T. bomb shelters in Gardiner, Montana still haunts me. A few years ago we reconnected and he recounted the whole story for me. Also Astronomer Chris Impey explains how Dark Energy will end it all.
