  • The images missing from the Gaza war

    July 31, 2014 | 10:54 am

    There’s no shortage of images from the Gaza conflict.

  • From the San Diego fires—a burning question

    By Jessica Levine Kupferberg

    November 1, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    What would you do if you had 10 minutes to get out of your home, not knowing whether it will still be there tomorrow? What would you take? What would you leave? What is truly indispensable?

    These are the questions that too many of my fellow San Diegans have faced in the last few...

    Despite having a population of far more than 3 million and a cultural and economic diversity rivaled by very few places, Los Angeles is not quite viewed as a real city by much of the outside world. Ever since large-scale irrigation and the movie business put the city on the map in...

    Almost every war has one photographic image that emerges and that remains ingrained in the public's mind -- and the media -- as the defining picture of that war.

    Out of the Holocaust came the image of the little boy in a cap with his hands raised over his head. Out of Vietnam, it is...

    Leaders of the world have called him irrelevant, and indeed he has been largely replaced in world affairs. But in an exhibit at Tel Aviv's Dvir Gallery, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is as relevant as ever as the foil for a young art curator's homage to Israeli culture.
