Nine months after rebels launched their surprise offensive into Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and commercial capital remains a vital battleground in its grinding civil war. Once considered a stronghold for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Aleppo is now mired in a deadly stalemate, as rebel and regime forces wage daily battles and Assad’s warplanes sow terror overhead. Photojournalist Yusuf Sayman ventured to Aleppo’s front lines for three days in early April and returned with these searing portraits of the rebels’ desperate fight.

Picture Dept: Nominated for a Webby!
Picture Dept is one aspect of the NewsBeast social media team. Together, with Newsweek, Cheat Sheet, and Newsweek Archivist, we’re finalists for a Webby in the “Social:  News & Information” category. 
None of this would be possible without the talent, generosity, and enthusiasm of all of the great photographers, curators, galleries, and publishers we’ve worked with—the above montage features just a few selections from our archive over the past year.
It’s a great honor to be nominated (e.g. the internet version of the Oscars) but we’re up against some pretty stiff competition: CNN, NBC, The New York Times, and…The New York Times. 
So please, if you’re a fan of Picture Dept, please take a moment and visit the Webby’s website to vote for the NewsBeast entry.

What an awesome photosheet that is.

Women Seeing WomenInternational Women’s Day, March 8
“Mallarme said that everything in the world exists in order to end in a book. Today everything exists to end in a photograph.” —Susan Sontag
Hanna Putz (featured in the first slide of this preview) nurtured her awareness as a photographer, starting out as a model in front of the camera. Echoing Sontag’s sentiment, she has looked for ways to shake up the “permanent posing” of her generation. In creating portraits of friends who had recently given birth to their first children, she noticed a remarkable shift in awareness. “Their attention is mainly on their child, and [they] are also in some kind of a transitional phase, as they are adjusting to the new role that has just been given to them,” said Putz in an interview with BJP.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Newsweek & The Daily Beast features work from 15 talented women who represent a range of remarkable awareness as lovers, daughters, mothers, and foremost artists.

Lee Friedlander, from the series Nudes and Mannequin
Friedlander’s playful spirit is evident in this dual presentation of his work, on the 2nd and 9th floors of Pace MacGill Gallery, currently in its final weeks of exhibition. The female forms of Mannequin and Nudes are larger than life. His Nudes are colossal structures amidst their domestic settings. Surprisingly, they are neither pornographic nor intimate in the unabashed expression of the naked body. Somehow, Mannequin feels more familiar—shop windows frame female figures towering over apartment buildings, yet with a statuesque grace. The selections from these collections find the enigmatic female form as muse, without losing a sense of humor to challenge the way we see the world.
Both exhibitions are on view through December 22nd. To see more from these series, and to find out more from the gallery, visit pacemacgill.com.

A Tale of Two Holidays in Sandy’s Aftermath
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, except in places ravaged by superstorm Sandy. While most people have recovered from the hurricane’s devastating winds and storm surge, pockets of New York and New Jersey are still reeling from the damage. Thousands have been displaced from their homes and lost everything with the storm. Yet, the extravagant holiday decorating continues apace in New York City. The Daily Beast looks at the disparity between the haves and have nots this holiday season.
