Odessa 1931

The First Photograph In History, 1826

Through a window of a building in Le Gras we see the first recorded image some 176 years ago. Life immortalized.

Cossack Blood Runs Deep In These Ukrainian Asgarda Female Warriors

French photojournalist Guillaume Herbaut spent some time with an unusual and tough group of 150 Ukrainian women who call themselves “Asgarda.” These women live in the Carpathian Mountains and follow a rigorous routine of fighting and boxing, often with medieval weaponry.

The women idolize Yulia Tymoshenko, the icon of the Orange Revolution and leader of the Ukrainian Fatherland party.

The portraits are inspiring, bizarre, and strangely beautiful. Source: Oeilpublic.com

American Propaganda WW1-WW2

As I continue with the propaganda theme I set up last week with the Soviet propaganda I come to our homeland, the U.S.A. The propaganda machine ran at full steam all through both World Wars. The Unites States’ propaganda is in my opinion right on level with the Soviet type. It really echoes the feeling of being scared and vengeful for what had already happened. It also casts stereotypes like they are going out of style of all the Axis powers. Nowadays this would be completely unheard of in our politically correct world. It shows the the anger that the government really wanted to instill in us to go enlist and fight. Here is my collection I’ve found over the years showcasing the American propaganda machine.
