Matters of the economy are forefront in many minds, with economic issues dominating the recent American election and the leadership change in China. But in several countries in Europe, economic debate is played out on the streets with protests, petrol bombs, and strikes. As the Eurozone struggles with the global financial crisis, many member countries have turned to a series of spending cuts to health, education, and other services and social programs. Widespread protests against these so-called austerity measures have erupted in several countries. Gathered here are photographs from the most heavily impacted nations in recent months, including Spain, Greece, Portugal, and Italy. -- Lane Turner (31 photos total)

Transplanter

play this essay

 

Fugitive beauty is everywhere, given to those who can grasp it.

“Transplanter” is the result of living four years in the countryside where I have observed life as it is and not as it should be. I search for delicate light on still life, humans and landscapes, so as to materialize a feeling of peace.

Today, the majority of humans live in cities but there is still a land that we cultivate and which, in turn, sustains us. With this project, I wanted to praise this natural beauty and invite people to consider and recognize the fragility of the land.

 

Bio

After having studied Photography in CEGEP de Matane in 2007, Lisandre St-Cyr Lamothe became acquainted with the mountain pastures of Switzerland where she worked as a shepherdess.

Since then, she has and continues to renew these experiences by trying to “transplant” herself into the countryside where rain and sun punctuate the seasons and the daily work. She searches for scenes of life among the peasants and in people living a simple life, bringing to mind bucolic Dutch paintings.

In the meantime, she has done a three-month internship at the Digital department of Magnum Paris and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Quebec, the United States, France and Spain. In January 2012 she has also completed a one-year artist residency in photography in Spain, allowing her to further the research away from cities while staying in touch with the contemporary photography world.

1. Sex and Lucia (2001) by Julio Médem with Paz Vega
Sex and Lucia is a spanish drama film written and directed by Julio Médem, and starring Paz Vega and Tristán Ulloa. As suggested by the title, there is a great deal of passionate sexual content surrounding the love story of Lucía and Lorenzo as the plot dissolves into a very lyrical eroticism. The movie features a highly non-linear story line with repeated surreal references to the ocean and beach. The plot depicts the tragic stories that connect all of the film's characters. The film was shot on two separate locations along the Mediterranean coast in Spain and France.

2. Antichrist (2009) by Lars von Trier with Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg
This film by Lars von Trier features a scene of penetrative vaginal intercourse, and also includes graphically violent sexual imagery. Body doubles were used to make the film. It follows horror film conventions and tells the story of a couple who, after the death of their child, retreat to a cabin in the woods where the man experiences strange visions and the woman manifests increasingly violent sexual behaviour. The narrative is divided into a prologue, four chapters and an epilogue. The film was primarily a Danish production but co-produced by companies from six different European countries. It was filmed in Germany and Sweden.

3. All About Anna (2005) by Jessica Nilsson with Gry Bay and Mark Stevens
All About Anna is a Danish film released in 2005. The film is explicit in its exploration of sexual relationships. It is a co-production between Innocent Pictures and Lars von Trier's Zentropa Productions, and is the third of Zentropa's sex films for women, following Constance (1998) and Pink Prison (1999). All three films were based on the Puzzy Power Manifesto developed by Zentropa in 1997.

4. Ken Park (2002) by Larry Clark and Ed Lachman
The screenplay was written by Harmony Korine, who based it on Larry Clark's journals and stories. The film was directed by Larry Clark and Ed Lachman. The film revolves around the abusive and/or dysfunctional home lives of several teenagers, set in the city of Visalia, California. The film was banned in Australia, as the Office of Film and Literature Classification said it contained scenes of "child sexual abuse, actual sex by people depicted as minors and sexualised violence". Cunnilingus, auto-erotic asphyxiation, urination, and group sex acts involving characters that are supposed to be teens are shown explicitly, but the sex is simulated with the exception of one scene showing a young man masturbating. All actors were actually over 18.

5. Caligula (1979) by Tinto Brass
Caligula is an Italian–American biographical film. It was directed by Tinto Brass, with additional scenes filmed by Giancarlo Lui and Penthouse founder Bob Guccione. The film concerns the rise and fall of Roman Emperor Gaius Caesar Germanicus, better known as Caligula. It was written by Gore Vidal, co-financed by Penthouse magazine and produced by Guccione and Franco Rossellini. It stars Malcolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, Helen Mirren, Peter O'Toole and John Gielgud. It was the first major motion picture to feature both eminent film actors and pornographic scenes. It remains one of the most infamous cult films ever made and remains banned in several countries to this day.Uncut version of this film includes several authentic sex scenes, including penetration, fellatio and ejaculation during the six minutes worth of inserts shot by the film's producer, Bob Guccione.

6. Romance (1999) by Catherine Breillat

7. Destricted (2006) described as seven short art-house porn films

'Impaled' by director Larry Clark shows a casting for a porn film, not with the insecure women often displayed, but instead with insecure young men. 'Balkan Erotic Epic' by director Marina Abramovic is an erotic comedy about myths from the Balkan around the sexual organs. 'House Call' (from Richard Prince) is a vintage sex scene and comes closest to pornography. 'Sync' (Marco Brambilla) only exists out of very fast cuts from different porn films and plays for about two minutes. 'Hoist' (Matthew Barney) is mostly an art film. 'Death Valley' opens with a beautiful shot, but then continues with an 8-minute masturbation scene. 'We Fuck Alone' (Gaspar Noé) has a doll as a main character.
