NYC Roommates Turn an Apartment Quarantine Into a Hilarious Photo Series

“Does it look like we are messing around? We aren’t. We are quarantined in our apartment, living off puzzling, Succession, and sourdough, and now we will be entertaining ourselves by taking photos in the COVID-19 Studio. Keep your distance, we don’t want to see you.” - Liz Devine

Exploring the Work of Women War Photographers

“We think of the Vietnam War as the turning point for women war photographers because it was the first war that didn’t follow any rules."

On this day in 1973, the last U.S. combat soldiers left Vietnam after failing to win a war that they never should have been sent to in the first place. It's very telling many have since returned, and are enjoying the benefits of communism in their old age.

In honor of those who risked their lives to tell the story on the frontlines, writer Sara Rosen looks back at "Women War Photographers"
