By Stephanie Eckardt / The W Magazine

Frieze New York 2017 kicks off later this week, meaning swarms of artists, dealers, collectors, street style stars, and the generally curious will soon be descending on Randall’s Island (and among them, an alleged smattering of Leonardo DiCaprios). There, they will find a series of significant showings of women artists well worth the trek, from new works by Lorna Simpson to an all-pink booth featuring Jenny Holzer and Louise Bourgeois in honor of the Women’s March. Preview the best of the lot before the fair opens May 5, here.

By Susanna D’Aliesio / The British Journal of Photography

The earthquake of 1988 shook Armenia and Soviet Union – and with 11.41 Michal Luczak has documented its long-term effects

At 11.41pm on 07 December 1988, a cold and snowy day, Armenia was struck by a 7 degree Richter earthquake. Some 25,000 people died and a further 514,000 were made homeless; the city of Spitak was worst affected, with a third of the population killed and all but one of its buildings destroyed.
