Mark Jenkins does brilliant street and nature installations. The shot of the posed donkey street performer made me laugh – it’s an actual statue, not a guy in a suit. Quite amazing that you can get people to donate money to a statue of a man painted gold, wearing a donkey mask… See the video here.

I recently saw Zana Briski’s amazing documentary Born into Brothels, which won the 2005 Academy Award for best documentary. Pictured above is a photo of one of the amazingly talented students Zana taught to in Calcutta’s red light district. After this documentary, Zana went on to found Kids with Cameras, whose purpose is to give hope to under-priviledged children through art. I think this amazing movie and this fantastic project deserve all the exposure it can get, hence why I’m posting this today.
