Kwame Kwei-Armah interview: 'I think we'll talk about this moment the way we talk about 1968' | London Evening Standard
"Everyone thought Elba was gearing up to play Bond — really he’s been “digging into his art”. In 2013, Elba played Mandela on screen and the following year made an album about him. “Idris called me one day and said, ‘Look, Kwamz, listen to the album. I wanna make a musical around this’. It so happened that I’d already bought it and really loved it.” The pair have known each other for years. “I remember seeing him on TV when I was in my first house. I saw him and I went, ‘That brother’s a movie star!’ In those days, thinking about a black British Hollywood movie star — one didn’t think it was probable, let alone possible.”" - Kwame Kwei-Armah interview: 'I think we'll talk about this moment the way we talk about 1968' | London Evening Standard

Stan Jorstad - Photographer - These Rare Lands
Stan Jorstad was born in New York in 1922, and passed at the age of 91 in 2013. His passion for taking pictures of the natural world began in his early childhood. At age ten, he received an Ansco folding camera from his father, beginning a quest that lasted for more than 70 years.

After attending Temple University, Stan enlisted in the 10th Mountain Division Ski Troops. During World War II, he served in North Africa and Italy, and received the Purple Heart. Living and training in the mountains greatly deepened his desire to work with nature and the environment.

"Keep close to nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."
John Muir quoted by Samuel Hall Young in Alaska Days With John Muir (1915).
