<p>“The tourist hopes to catch something through his lens, while the traveler seeks to surrender, even to be claimed by a surprise in very real life,” celebrated travel writer Pico Iyer notes in his introduction to a portfolio of Jacob Aue Sobol’s photographs made while riding on the Trans-Siberian Railway.</p>

<p>We have entered an era—let’s call it the post-Occupy era—in which questioning the benefits of capitalist society has become commonplace. Steve Lambert’s installation, which a friend told me about last year, grasps this new political condition by deploying the spectacle of commodity culture, with Times Square billboard lights and a salesman’s enthusiastic exclamation point.</p>

Dayanita Singh
From her intimate portraits of India’s elite to her forensic study of bureaucratic file rooms, Dayanita Singh (b. 1961) has approached photography with the detailed eye of a novelist. Beyond the frame of her austere, atmospheric interiors, landscapes, and character studies, collected since 1986 in twelve monographs, a portal opens onto a narrative at once mysterious and vivid.

<p>In January 1936, Jean Bonthoux, a French pharmacist, began publishing Mieux Vivre (Live better), his second monthly arts revue. It joined Bonthoux’s already successful Ciels & Sourires de France (Skies and smiles of France), which also provided the blueprint: hire a well-respected artist as creative director, insist on high production values, invite the best writers and contemporary photographers to contribute content around everyday themes with a wide appeal, and—you might have guessed— incorporate smart, exclusive advertising for new pharmaceutical products.</p>

In the shopping district a few blocks from Berlin-based artist Tacita Dean’s Los Angeles apartment, concrete compass roses decorate the street corners, and plaques inlaid in the sidewalks read "All Roads Lead to Westwood.” LA imagines itself as the end of the earth.

As early as 1904, when Henry Adams wrote the preface to his hybrid tour manual of the relics of medieval France, it had already become something of an in-joke that no traveler set forth on a journey without a trusty compact camera at the ready.

Mountains are powerful symbols of eternity, of the immensity and grandeur of nature, towering above and indifferent to human civilization and history. Yet our interest in and preoccupation with mountains—climbing, studying, painting, and photographing them—are the products of a very recent history.

In early November of 2009, a group of ten Nigerian friends— among them photographers Uche Okpa-Iroha, Amaize Ojeikere, Emeka Okereke, and Ray Daniels Okeugo—piled into a black VW van christened “Black Maria” and headed east out of Lagos on the coastal expressway toward neighboring Benin.

Close to the port of Ben Guerdane in Tunisia is the site of Choucha Camp, a refugee center operated from 2011 to 2013 by the United Nations Human Rights Council. A few miles from the Libyan border, it was the recipient of thousands fleeing the Libyan crisis, which began in 2011 and has evolved into a protracted civil war.

Pico Iyer
Fierce eyed in their filmy black dresses and off-the-shoulder numbers, the girls of Ulaanbaatar were strutting down the corridors of the gleaming new Shangri-La Hotel last August as if in Bangkok or Shanghai. Some were carrying bags from the shiny Vuitton outlet down the street; others had no doubt been pastoralists on the grasslands just years before.

The Pyramids of Giza—vessels of history, myth, and mystery—have been a frequent point of reference in Maha Maamoun’s work, which places a special focus on their persistent use as archetypes and clichés of travel photography. An Egyptian artist and photographer, as well as a founding board member of Cairo’s Contemporary Image Collective, Maamoun is acutely aware of photography’s critical role in representing ideas, forging narratives, and shaping media and society.

“President Roosevelt has expressed his lively interest in the enterprise,” Annie Smith Peck wrote in 1908, soliciting a small donation. Ten cents—“a mite toward the large sum needed for the important expedition to set out June 29”— could buy a set of pictures taken by Peck, then fifty-eight years old, printed in support of her quest to ascend Mount Huascarán in the Peruvian Andes.
