“798 Art District or, simply ‘798’, is located in the Chaoyang District of Beijing, a short 20-minute drive from the airport. It houses a thriving artistic community — most famously, the 50-year-old now-defunct military factory buildings of particular architectural style. Majority of the galleries are free to enter-making it an excellent place to browse contemporary art and support local talent.”
“Fonte da Telha beach is part of the Portuguese coast, situated on the south side of the River Tejo. It’s one of those places that drive most beach lovers insane and make this country such a great place to live in.”
“My favorite Summer Hot Spot in Portugal is the southwest coast of Alentejo and Algarve. With gorgeous beaches and being part of a protected natural reserve, this is the paradise for laid-back vacationers, chilled surfers and trigger-happy photographers alike!”

On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.

There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
