Photojournalist Max Desfor Dies at 104
Max Desfor, a former Associated Press (AP) photographer, the ex-photo editor of US News & World Report, passed away on 19 February in Maryland, USA, due to complications from a stroke. He was 104 years old. Desfor began his career as a messenger and darkroom assistant with AP, in 1933. In June 1950, he volunteered to report on the Korean War, when the North invaded the South. He was awarded the Pulitzer prize for his photograph that showed of hundreds of Korean war refugees, crossing the destroyed Taedong river bridge, as they looked for security from Chinese troops (1950). Later, during World War II, in August 1945, he photographed the bomber Enola Gay, after the B-29 arrived in Tinian. In an Instagram post following his death, fellow photojournalist David Hume Kennerly, had this to say about Desfor... “Max was a photographer’s photographer: Brave. Intrepid. A brilliant newsman. He had a great run.”
The Air is a Mill of Hooks – Bikaner House, New Delhi
From February 7 to 17, 2018, Vadehra Art Gallery presented a solo exhibition of artist Anju Dodiya’s recent body of works titled The Air is a Mill of Hooks at the Bikaner House in New Delhi. At the exhibition, Dodiya experimented with paintings rendered on shaped mattresses, fabric combines and unbleached cotton. Fraught with psychological perplexity and set to confront viewers with a poised theatricality, with some of the mattresses contoured into blood or teardrops, a sail, or a cross, the works on display simultaneously reminded viewers of the warmth of domestic interiors – making them feel as if they have entered a Renaissance pageant that has been interrupted by a torture scene.

Egyptian Photojournalist Faces Death Penalty
Mahmoud Abu Zeid, alias Shawkan, is an Egyptian photojournalist who was apprehended on August 14th, 2013, while covering the anti-government demonstration in Cairo. He was assigned by Demotix–a British photo agency–to report on the clashes between the army, and the supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi, which took place in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. Zeid, along with more than 700 people, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and membership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian prosecutors have appealed for ‘maximum penalty’, that is death by hanging for all the accused. He was held without any trial or charges till March 2016. The UN Working Group considers his imprisonment as arbitrary, and they have also demanded for his immediate release.
