  • This shot of silhouetted ants in the Costa Rican rainforest, above, by Hungarian photographer Bence Máté won Veolia Environment photographer of the year award which is presented by the Natural History Museum of England and BBC Wildlife Magazine.

  • A Calvin Klein ad, seen below, has been banned in Australia for promoting rape. A watchdog group says the ad "was demeaning to women by suggesting that she is a plaything of these men. It also demeans men by implying sexualized violence against women."

  • Reuters talks to Julian Schnabel about those really big polaroids we mentioned a couple of weeks back.

  • Meanwhile, NPR has much more on “photograffeur” JR and his TED prize:
    JR's projects vary but have one underlying cause: Provoke change by fostering community. "Portrait Of A Generation" showed giant photos of suburban "thugs" outside Paris. "Face 2 Face," which, as the TED site explains, "some consider the biggest illegal photo exhibition ever," explored Israeli-Palestinian tensions. "Women Are Heroes" was an effort to empower women by showing their faces.
