The Voyeur’s Lens: Capturing Private Moments

Keren Moscovitch is not a voyeur in the typical sense: that is, the sexual excitement of watching is not the goal. Her goal is to show people stripped raw. We are never more animal and more true to ourselves than when we are naked, entwined with someone we love. These photos display that kind of vulnerability in honest detail.

Powerful, Spooky Images of Shamans in Latin America

In what economists like to call the developed world, we’ve mostly thrown out our rituals and superstitions. But in a country like Peru, with a rich cultural heritage, rampant poverty, and a 45% indigenous population, the average person might not be so inclined to visit a medical doctor. These curanderos are respected and trusted similarly to doctors, as they heal spiritual and physical problems alike. I guess you shouldn’t knock it until you try it, but I think I’m going to stick to Tylenol for my headaches. That is, unless my headache is actually the spirit of my grandfather trying to climb out of my skull- then I might give this guy a call.
