Black Men in Dress
Black Men in Dress comprises a series of portraits photographed at the Johannesburg and Soweto Pride, a yearly event for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community. These portraits remind Mlangeni of a childhood where, as he describes:[M]ost communities had what we call ‘uSis’bhuti’. This is a term used to describe a boy who behaves like a girl. Why then do we hate these boys when they have grown up to be men who dress as women? Why do we turn and call them names, pretending that we’ve never seen it? These are some of the issues I try to bring to the fore in this series. (artist statement)

It was during a spirituous séance that [Tarkovsky] supposedly entered into contact with Boris Bastenak, who told him he would shoot seven films.
"Only?" Andrei said.
"But good ones," Boris Leonidovich replied.
And not counting his school works, Tarkovsky in fact created seven films.
The projection began. It was the first time that Andrei really saw [his final film, The Sacrifice]… Did he think of Pasternak’s prophecy?

An abandoned mall in Thailand has become home to hundreds of fish after it flooded. Locals introduced the tilapia to eat mosquitoes which had been attracted by the stagnant water.
