In his program notes for her tribute, Scott Foundas wrote, “It is one of the few serious shortcomings, don...

    I've Been Paparazzied.

    Alright so this is a horribly showoffy thing to post but.... Somehow these photos aren't simply captioned "Tilda Swinton, B. Ruby Rich and some little gay guy at the Magnolia party," and I have to admit that made my morning.

    Hetherington and Junger Talk Afghan War Doc Restrepo

"So for those of you in the audience w...
