Two spectacular photos of the Hill of Crosses in Lithuania. Consisting of a hill bristling with hundreds of thousands of crosses of every size and design, it is a powerful testament to religious devotion - where pilgrims descend to plead with Jesus for miracles.The tradition of leaving crosses began after an uprising against the Russian tsar was put down in 1831.

The World Through My Eyes by Daido Moriyama

Moriyama’s photography is indeed provocative, both for the form it takes (dirty, blurry, overexposed, or scratched) and for its content. The viewer’s experience of the photo—whether it captures a place, a person, a situation, or an atmosphere—is the central thrust in his work, which vividly and directly conveys the artist’s emotions. The approximately 200 black-and-white images sketch out an original perspective on Japanese society, especially during the period from the 1950s to the ‘70s, although the artist himself chose to conclude this selection with a number of photos shot in the past decade. An outstanding summary of the best projects Moriyama has pursued, in a richly printed volume.
