Linda Spaman

What an amazing story: immediately after her boyfriend broke with her, Linda Spaman fell off her bike, losing her two front teeth in the process. As PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson explains it, after she realized that the accident was not covered by her insurance, she decided to document "the long, painful, and expensive process of getting new teeth, and played with the idea of turning the material into a coffee table book. She even contacted her insurance company -- the one that didn't pay for her teeth -- and asked if they wanted to sponsor the book." Linda presented her story at PKN Gothenburg, and was then invited to present at PKN Oslo, which she did two weeks ago. We've included a few images from her presentation below, but you can view the entire -- slightly graphic -- series on Linda's blog.

Strange Fruit; Split Seed

"Have you ever seen a photo that left you utterly speechless, gutted your ability to even comprehend what you are looking at?"In Strange Fruit; Split Seed from Beacon, Vol. 1. artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak presents a series of drawings based on lynching photographs and his illustrative reactions. He explores images that shake you to your core not for what can be seen in them, but rather what can't be seen in them, and how what matters most are the stories in them that often have never been told.  Watch this moving presentation and confront the limits of interpretation.
