Fazal Sheikh is an American photographer. He became famous for his pictures of people living in displaced communities in Africa, Pakistan, India, Brazil, Cuba and Afghanistan. One of his most interesting and moving projects called Ladli was executed in India. Sheikh was interested in the problem of status of women in modern India. The situation is pretty difficult over there. The number of abortions is extremely high in the country. Usually they have abortions when it is known that a woman is expecting a girl. “In the past, it was common for female babies to be killed at birth – often part of a midwife’s duties”. Children are kidnapped, raped and killed. Many of them are forced to prostitute. Slavery is also a common curse of the modern Indian society.

Geneva is worth visiting at least because there you can easily stop thinking of your problems for a time. From the first sight Geneva is a conservative city with unimpressive architecture. It can be explained by the fact that too much international organizations have founded their head quarters there.

Carl Kleiner is a Swedish photographer known for his surreal images. He is one of those contemporary artists who can see extraordinary features of usual things. For example, one of his series is devoted to sculptures made of vegetables so that they remind cartoon models. In fact Kleiner doesn’t divide commercial commissions and personal projects. He is sure that both kinds of photography may affect each other. Thus if you compare his commercial projects with his Diary you would surprise to see insignificant difference existing between them.
The first one to conquer the market of fine arts was the former navy officer James Christie. He organized the first sales of art objects in London in 1766.

The Royal Family sent the items from its private art collections to be exhibited or sold via auction.
A great number of people who live either on their own or in extended families keep cats in their houses as pet companions. The specialists from the Lion University in France carried out the research which showed that there are more than 400 millions of domestic cats in the world.

Once it seemed to me that I was much more motivated and ambitious than my husband was. I became more irritated and paid attention to trivial matters. I tried to understand myself and the actual reasons of my behavior and attitude. Sometimes it seemed to me I got married laziest man in the world but I still loved him. Sometimes he was avoiding responsibility. It happened so from time to time he neglected me when I need emotional support. Well, he just didn’t understand me when I needed it. But then I realized that it was my choice to be highly ambitious and it was my choice to get married him. It was a dilemma for me whether to divorce or change my attitude to it.
