Growing Tensions

Both Madame Royal and the Dauphin were extemely sensitive to their parents' emotions; they could read the pain on their parents' faces.

Although the King And Queen tried to protect their children, the restricted living arrangements made it inevitable that the children would learn of the growing tensions between the King and the Assembly and between France and Austria.

Carthagena, Spain

As an undercover photographer, JR transforms his pictures into posters and makes open space photo galleries out of our streets. An acute observer of our time, as comfortable in cozy neighborhoods as in urban ghettos, he questions pedestrians with the exhibitions he mounts on their everyday commutes.

Using a camera he found once in the subway, JR finds inspiration in informal encounters he makes following his travels and his intuitions.

From 2001, he has been pointing his camera to a number of communities (writers, breakdancer, fresstylers, ...), and worked with popular actors and musicians such as Vincent Cassel, IAM or the Gotan Project.

From 2004, he has been working on the 28 millimeters project, which first part - Portrait of a generation - led him up to the New York Times front page. The large size pictures of the Montfermeil and Clichy-sous-Bois youth have been notably displayed on the walls of the European Center for Photography and the square of the Hotel de Ville, in Paris.

His pictures beginning to sell at Hotel Drouot of Paris, he keeps on planning unauthorized exhibitions of large size pictures such as in Rome or in Wuppertal (Germany). He is currently working on the second and third parts of the 28 millimeters project in Middle East and Brazil.

The 3rd stage of the 28 millimeters project - Women Are Heroes - has already led him to Africa in post-conflicting zones to shoot the women with who he wishes to share painful stories and to testify of their desire to live. Their portraits were already pasted in Sierra-leone and in Liberia. In 2008-2009, JR will develop this project in India and in Asia.

Nancy Cunard

Mrs. Nancy Cunard take this as a solemn warning, your number is up. You're going for a ride shortly. You are a disgrace to the White race. You can't carry on in this country. We will give you until May 15th. Either give up sleeping with a nigger or take the consequences. This is final. X22. P.S. - we will not only take you but we'll take your nigger lover with you.

Kate, unaccustomed to defeat and ignorant of Sprague's reasons for ending the courtship, was plunged into dejection.

Sensing that something was wrong, Kate's father told her that if anything disappointed him, it was her failure to disclose her deepest personal concerns to confide in him as he confided in her.

Kustom Kar Kommandos


In this camp evocation of masculine fetishism and 1960s' youth culture, a young man ritualistically strokes his customised car with a powder puff. The 1950s' hit song ‘Dream Lover’ provides the film’s breathless soundtrack. Anger's combination of sound and image is widely acclaimed as an important precursor to the contemporary music video.

"There are very few men--and they are the exceptions--who are able to think and feel beyond the present moment."

The Keating Five

Together, the five senators had accepted more than $300,000 in contributions from Keating, and their critics added a new term to the American lexicon:

Keating Five.

As the S&L failure deepened, the sheer magnitude of the losses hit the press. Billions of dollars had been squandered. The Keating Five became shorthand for the kind of political influence that money can buy. The five senators were linked as the gang who went to bat for an S&L bandit.
