    The Telly Award winning story of Marie Sonie St. Louis of Haiti is one of four intimate portraits produced by Podium Arts as part of the "Access to Life" project, for The Global Fund in partnership with Magnum Photos. This initiative was part of a major international campaign presenting the dramatic achievements of TGFs' HIV treatment efforts in countries around the world. Originally produced for use at the Access to Life Launch Event (also designed and produced by Podium), the video stories have been repurposed for multiple platforms including the Web, press (aired on PBS "Now" and NBC Nightly News) and live presentation. Featuring original underscore by Senegalese world music artist Youssou N'Dour, the stories combine the images of world class photographers from Magnum Photos with video and audio documentation captured around the world. All video content for the project was finished in HD.

        Mark Power photographed the construction of the Airbus A380, the largest passenger plane ever built, over a period of three years, 2003 to 2006. Because of it's extraordinary size, Airbus first had to construct the infrastructure: the building to house the Final Assembly Line, alterations to factories throughout Europe and the logistics of an extensive transportation network, including a purpose-built ship, made in Shanghai. Mark Power was commissioned by Airbus to document every stage. Here the pictures are sequenced in a roughly chronological order and devided into sections: The construction of the Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Toulouse; the many factories throughout Europe, each making specific parts of the airplane; the transportation of the first parts to Toulouse; the assembly of the first plane; the 'Reveal'; the first flight and subsequent appearance at Airshows; and, finally, the 'Cold Test' in Arctic Canada. This slideshow was commissioned for Foto Industria Bologna, Italy, the world's first forum exploring the relationship between photography and companies.

            Alec Soth encountered Robert Adams’s 1985 monograph Summer Nights as a young photographer, and the book was, in his words, a “gateway drug” to the “harder stuff” in Adams’s body of work. When asked to participate in Aperture Remix, an exhibition for which artists were commissioned to create new work in response to Aperture publications that were influential in their artistic development, Soth chose Summer Nights. This video is Soth’s response to Adams, and is featured in the Aperture Remix exhibition on view at Aperture Gallery through November 17.
