An MSF nurse tries to make a young patient smile in the ER of one of MSF’s makeshift hospitals in Syria. “We work as a beehive,” said one of the Syrian nurses. “Not only war-related cases are admitted, the hospital also receives normal medical cases, such as flu or medical emergencies, pediatrics—everything, even blood transfers. It’s similar to any regular hospital.” Before the current war, Syrians used to have access to good quality health care; now MSF is trying to help fill the enormous gaps.

101 Objects: The Soul of an Artist

In our November issue, poet Mark Strand writes:

"When we look at photographs of authors, especially famous authors, we scan their faces, hoping to find some connection between the way they look and their work. We never find it, or at least I never have, because we don’t know if such a connection actually exists or whether we would recognize it if it did. A penetrating gaze, a goofy grin, even wild hair, could belong to an average person as well as to a genius. Even if we have numerous photographs of a single author, as we do of Whitman, it would be impossible to find that revealing feature or gesture that would establish the connection we seek."

Do you think this picture captures the spirit of Walt Whitman?

Alessandro Puccinelli - Intersections
Artist’s statement:
"Where Sea and Sky collide.
In essence, Intersections is all about that brief moment of time when the water of the sea blurs with the clouds of a stormy sky and creates a unique and abstract fleeting moment. When the fury of the ocean seems to take a breath before inexorably and inevitably starting again with the next wave.”
