Zoo visit Antwerp

Antwerp, on a Saturday afternoon



Antwerp: after a zoo visit, time for a short walk in town: the Meir, Paul's piano,  a bagpipe band, and actor Herbert Flack giving an interview during his poppy work on 7 November 2010.

The Intruder

Nero meets an unexpected guest in the garden. Quite frankly, I had expected a fiercer attitude...

Indian toilet cleaners protest

Can you imagine having a job like that?

Hundreds of Indian workers employed to manually clean non-flush toilets have protested in Delhi against their working conditions.

They say that the authorities have failed to act despite declaring such work illegal, and should issue an apology for decades of discrimination.

Government figures suggest that about 300,000 low-caste Dalits are still employed in such work.

They are estimated on average to earn less than $4 (£2.50) a month.

Johnny Cash Project

The Johnny Cash Project is a global collective art project, and we would love for you to participate. Through this website, we invite you to share your vision of Johnny Cash, as he lives on in your mind's eye. Working with a single image as a template, and using a custom drawing tool, you'll create a unique and personal portrait of Johnny. Your work will then be combined with art from participants around the world, and integrated into a collective whole: a music video for "Ain't No Grave", rising from a sea of one-of-a-kind portraits.

Strung together and played in sequence over the song, the portraits will create a moving, ever evolving homage to this beloved musical icon. What's more, as new people discover and contribute to the project, this living portrait will continue to transform and grow, so it's virtually never the same video twice.
