Photographer Bruce Davidson’s Central Park (New York: Aperture, 1995) portrays the country’s largest urban wonderland as a self-contained world, with its own small successes (a newborn bird) and failures (a homeless man’s search for warmth in the dead of winter).

The Grand Trunk Road (New York: Aperture, 1995) records Raghubir Singh’s vibrant journey along the thoroughfare of India’s populous and politically dominant north. Singh’s “Grand Trunk” images first appeared in Mother Jones (July/Aug. 1994).

Paul Graham’s Empty Heaven (Zurich: Scalo, 1995) juxtaposes some outrageously incongruent images (for example, mushroom clouds with kittens) to create a particularly independent modern portrait of Japan.


What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
