“Does not the very word ‘creative’ mean to build, to initiate, to give out, to act - rather than to be acted upon, to be subjective? Living photography is positive in its approach, it sings a song of life - not death.”
Berenice Abbott, who was born on this day in 1898.
The American photographer effortlessly married both the art and the science of the medium into the single picture.
An assistant to Man Ray in 1920s Paris, Abbott studied under one great master and introduced another; persuading Eugéne Atget to sit for a portrait shortly before he died, she would later work tirelessly to promote his work and it recognised internationally.
Learning from both artists, Abbott was however, a visionary on entirely her own terms.

On this day in 1439, the Parliament of King Henry VI in England issued a proclamation that banned kissing, in an effort to stymie a plague outbreak.
While the English have a somewhat reserved reputation in modern times, in the Middle Ages they were a Catholic nation, with kisses ritualised in their religious culture. Furthermore, the nation went one further than their European counterparts, often locking lips.
Remarkably, the proclamation comes centuries before medicine recognised the connection between hygiene and germs, germs and disease.
This child however, seems to have got the gist.

Gianni Versace sitting on the table of his study in Italy, 1985.
The fashion designer was as glamorous and compelling a character as the celebrities he dressed, counting Princess Diana amongst his friends.
Founder of the Versace fashion house, the Italian transformed the industry with his brash and exuberant designs, and championed the ‘supermodel’ phenomenon.
Versace was murdered outside his Miami home on 15 July 1997, aged just 50.

The Jules Rimet trophy was the original World Cup prize - won outright by Brazil when they lifted it for the third time in 1970, as stipulated by the FIFA President for whom the trophy was named.
Stolen in 1983, the trophy remains unrecovered.
It was Brazil too, who began the ritual of raising the cup, with captain Hilderaldo Bellini obliging photographers’ request for a better view in 1958.

Joyeux 14 juillet! It’s a momentous weekend for the French, today celebrating their national day and playing in the FIFA World Cup final tomorrow.
We’re joining in with a look at la Fête Nationales past. Internationally known as Bastille Day, it marks the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, changing the course of the French Revolution.
This 1939 photograph shows members of the French Foreign Legion arriving in Paris ahead of a Bastille Day Parade.
Intensely-trained infantryman, the Legion is a unique military arm in that it accepts international recruits who are willing to fight for the French nation.

America’s seam and soul, the Mississippi River has been immortalised in word, song and photography, with the steamboat a recurring motif.
Scanned from the original 1925 glass image, this image shows the ‘Big River’ at night.
It was on this day in 1832 that geographer Henry Schoolcraft discovered the source of the Mississippi at Lake Itasca, in a time when the continent was still unravelling its mysteries for the new settlers.

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
American inventor, manufacturer, and philanthropist George Eastman, who was born on 12 July 1854.
From the collections of @eastmanmuseum, this 1890 image shows the Eastman Kodak founder on the deck of the 'Gallia', with a box camera produced by his company.
Patenting the first practicable roll-film in 1884 and expertly popularising the medium, Eastman’s contribution to both cinema and photography is immeasurable.

In a picture that exudes optimism, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip welcome the Kennedys to Buckingham Palace for a banquet honouring the then US President.
After his assassination in 1963, the Queen invited Jacqueline Kennedy back to the U.K. to jointly dedicate the British memorial to JFK at Runnymede, the site on which the Magna Carta was sealed. The memorial, with its connotations of liberty, still stands as a tribute to the kinship between the two nations.
Today, President Donald Trump has arrived in London for his first UK visit since his inauguration. While Trump and the First Lady will meet the Queen on Friday, it is a working, rather than state, visit; no banquet is planned.

In July 1995 the worst case of genocide in Europe since World War II took place at Srebrenica in Bosnia. Over a period of five days, the Bosnian Serb army took control of the small spa town and separated Muslim males from their families. Over 7,000 men and boys were systematically murdered in the fields and valleys around the area.
Esteemed photojournalist Tom Stoddart here documents the grief between two elderly women, in a refugee centre set up to shelter Muslim families after they fled Srebrenica.

The Rolling Stones pictured in a television studio in 1965. It was on 10 July of that year that the band scored their first US number one with ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’.
They might well laugh; the song was written by Keith Richards in his sleep. The guitarist woke up one morning to find he’d recorded a riff on his Philips cassette player, “then me snoring for the next forty minutes.”
The hit made the Stones’ reputation as the best and the baddest British boys to dance to, in stark contrast to the group who eventually knocked Satisfaction off the top spot: Herman’s Hermits with ‘I’m Henry the Eighth, I Am’.

@Regrann from @gettyarchive: On 9 July 1947, it was announced that Princess Elizabeth was engaged to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten. As Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the couple have been the head and heart of the British Monarchy for near seven decades, just shy of their 71 year marriage.
Taken the day after the news was shared with the world, this formal portrait inside Buckingham Palace is markedly different from the highly-styled but relaxed images we see of today’s young Royals.
In their recent engagement photos, Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess Sussex were tactile and unreserved in front of the camera, reflecting both the changing role of the monarchy and the changing mores of society itself.

“When you can’t keep going, go faster.” There few people more motivating than Czechoslovakian long-distance runner, Emil Zátopek.
Winning the 5k and 10k meters at the 1952 Olympics, the ‘Czech Locomotive’ went on to win a third gold medal after deciding to enter the marathon too - having never run one in his life.
Zátopek’s training methods prepared him for any challenge: he was known to weigh himself down with heavy boots, or else layers and layers while running in thick snow. He was said to run for hours in a bath full of laundry.
While it sounds unconventional, the record-breaker established the interval training and hyperventilation techniques that are in practice today.
Revered for his talent and loved for his endless generosity, Zátopek was stripped of his Communist Party rank and membership following his support for the 1968 Prague Spring, joining the call for greater democracy.
The world champion was forced to endure hard, dangerous labour as a result, including work in uranium mines.
‘Rehabilitated’ in 1990, Zátopek died of a stroke ten years later.

💚🖌️ “I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.”
Frida Kahlo, who was born on this day in 1907.
So abundant a character must have been both a reward and a challenge for any photographer. Here, Ivan Dmitri uses the painter’s beloved Mexico to frame a face which has become something of a shorthand in the decades since her death. Her own muse, Frida Kahlo has become one of the world’s most recognisable personalities, as well as artists.

So abundant a character must have been both a reward and a challenge for any photographer. Here, Ivan Dmitri uses the painter’s beloved Mexico to frame a face which has become something of a shorthand in the decades since her death. Her own muse, Frida Kahlo has become one of the world’s most recognisable personalities, as well as artists.

Kurt Hutton’s quietly composed, humanist photography made him the perfect candidate to cover the beginnings of Britain’s National Health Service, which celebrates its 70th anniversary today.
This 1946 image was published in the Picture Post story, ‘Where Bevan Got His National Health Plan’. Miners and steelworkers in Tredegar, Wales, paid the Workmen's Medical Aid Society twopence out of every pound they earned to go towards their medical, dental and optical services. It was a blueprint the great Nye Bevan, who spearheaded the development of the NHS, was inspired by.

“Lastly, she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days.”
It is said that Lewis Carroll first dreamed up Wonderland on this day in 1862. But the question is; when is a raven like a writing desk?

An old painting inside library at Katas Raj Temples. The Katas Raj Temples, are several Hindu temples connected to one another by walkways. The temples form a complex surrounding a pond named Katas which is regarded as sacred by Hindus.
Recently, hearing a suo moto case about the drying up of the sacred pond, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar asked officials of the Punjab government why there were no idols at the temple complex. Its renovation thus involved an intellectual distancing from the process, necessary for appropriating Hindu heritage into Pakistani heritage. The Supreme Court’s interest in the preservation of the Katas Raj temples is, therefore, a step in the right direction. Pakistani state had renovated and protected a lot of historical Hindu temples in the past decade.

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”
Jim Morrison of The Doors now occupies a rarefied place in rock history, a romantic figure who joined the infamous 27 Club when he died on this day in 1971.
As a performer however, he was visceral and provocative - taking his words quite literally, Jim was arrested in 1969 for alleged indecent exposure at a Florida gig. Morrison always denied the charge and was officially pardoned in 2010.
