  • Why Has China Arrested Award-Winning Photographer Lu Guang …

    2019.01.16 · 发表评论

    The first Lu Guang photo I saw was of a shepherd covering his mouth to avoid the stench of a poisoned river. It’s a powerful image of visceral disgust that since Lu’s arrest in November 2018 has taken on new meaning. Lu, a three-time winner of a World Press Photo Award, was detained while in Xinjiang, China’s vast western border region. Though Lu has spent the last few decades documenting some of the darkest aspects of Chinese society – environmental pollution; drug addiction; the spread of HIV amongst villagers so poor they had to sell their blood – this is the first time he’s been officially detained. While he’s yet to be charged, his ‘crime’ is most likely that of being a potential witness to what a US Congress Executive Committee has described as ‘the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today.’ – 我看到的第一张卢光的照片是一个牧羊人为了避免有毒河流的恶臭而用嘴捂住自己的嘴。自2018年11月卢武铉被捕以来,这是一个强烈的内心厌恶的形象,有了新的含义。陆克文曾三次获得世界新闻摄影奖,他在中国西部边境地区新疆被拘留。尽管在过去的几十年里,卢一直在记录中国社会最黑暗的一些方面——环境污染、毒瘾、艾滋病毒在如此贫穷的村民中的传播——他们不得不出卖自己的血液——这是他第一次被正式拘留。虽然他还没有被起诉,但他的“罪行”很有可能是美国国会执行委员会所描述的“当今世界上少数民族最大的大规模监禁”的潜在证人。

  • What Lena Dunham Writing a Syrian Refugee Film Tells Us Ab …

    Last month it was announced that Lena Dunham, the American actor and creator of the hit US show Girls (2012–17) would adapt the book A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea (2017) by Melissa Fleming, the head of communications for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea tells the harrowing story of Syrian refugee Doaa al-Zamel, who survived the sinking of the boat she was on, attempting to cross from Egypt to Italy in 2014. Zamel was stranded for four days at sea, ending the ordeal holding two babies who had been entrusted to her by their dying families. Her only support was a child’s inflatable life ring given to her by her fiancé, who drowned in front of her in the choppy waters of the Mediterranean Sea. This year alone that same body of water has claimed the lives of nearly 2,000 people. – 上个月,据宣布,美国影星列娜·邓纳姆(Lena Dunham)将改编《希望比海洋更强大》(2017年)一书。《希望比海更强大》讲述了叙利亚难民多阿·扎梅尔(Doaa al-Zamel)的悲惨故事,她在2014年试图从埃及横渡到意大利的船只沉没中幸存下来。扎梅尔在海上搁浅了四天,结束了抱着两个孩子的苦难,这两个孩子是他们垂死的家人托付给她的。她唯一的支持是她的未婚夫送给她的一枚充气生命戒指,她被淹没在地中海波涛汹涌的海面上。仅今年一年,同样的水就夺去了将近2000人的生命。
