Syria’s Lost Generation
While covering the Syrian refugee crisis earlier this year, the photographer Elena Dorfman was drawn most strongly to the teen-agers, who “all talked about missing out on lives, on futures that now seem lost.” Take a look at a powerful audio slide show featuring a small fraction of the population disproportionately affected by the war: http://nyr.kr/1aVzFXA
Photographs by Elena Dorfman.
A portrait of Saturn — This NASA portrait received October 18, 2013 shows a view looking down on Saturn and its rings, created from images obtained by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on October 10, 2013. It was made by amateur image processor and Cassini fan Gordan Ugarkovic. This image has not been geometrically corrected for shifts in the spacecraft perspective and still has some camera artifacts.The mosaic was created from 12 image footprints with red, blue and green filters from Cassini’s imaging science subsystem. Ugarkovic used full color sets for 11 of the footprints and red and blue images for one footprint. (GORDAN UGARKOVIC/NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute/AFP/Getty Images)
