In her forthcoming book “Sovereign,” photographer Jocelyn Lee documents the female nude. But instead of the platonic ideal typically captured in the genre, Lee spent 15 years photographing women between 50 and 90 years old with care and compassion. The result is an incredibly compelling and unique body of work.
Also in the show: Facebook removes facial recognition from its platform, ART CINEMA asked artists about the one photo that helped shape their work, and the AP’s Emilio Morenatti photographs the surreal beauty of the volcanic ash covered landscape of La Palma.
