Anyone and everyone who’s adventured across China on a train will know that it’s not just about getting from point A to point B; it’s about the journey itself and the people you meet along the way. Wang Fuchun took this to the next level ever since the 1970’s.- http://bit.ly/17Q6eas

Chiara Goia, Mongolia’s Rainbow of Riches: What Will Be PastGreed keeps men forever poor, even the abundance of this world will not make them rich.
— Mongolian proverb
“Over the course of a generation, the Mongolia of pastoral nomads herding on grand steppes is migrating into memory,” says Half King curator Anna Van Lenten. “Massive deposits of gold, copper, silver, and coal are luring foreign investment, raising prices, and despoiling the steppes. Chiara’s images capture the unease of a people whose cultural heritage hangs in the balance as they adapt, over the course of a single generation, to a market economy.”
Captivated by the beauty of the Mongolian landscape while visiting the country in 2008, Chiara Goia has since been in an ongoing study of Mongolia’s economic growing pains and boons. The Half King Photography Series presents an exhibition of her work, accompanied by an opening night lecture by the artist, moderated by Patrick Witty, International Picture Editor at Time Magazine, tomorrow, April 9.

In an upcoming issue of the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, a group of British psychologists reports that people who live in cities show diminished powers of general attention compared to people from remote areas. With so much going on around them, urbanites don’t pay much attention to surroundings unless they’re highly engaging.
Instead, as the researchers put it, city dwellers have developed a form of attention that puts priority on “the search for potential dangers or new opportunities.”
