After the birth of her daughter and taking time off to care for her, photographer and director Jessica Dimmock lost her healthcare coverage with the Directors Guild of America because she didn’t meet the wage requirements. This article in The New York Times explains how Jessica has written an open letter asking the Directors Guild to reconsider its policies and allow new parents more time to meet the minimum earning requirement. It’s garnered the support of Hollywood women including Amy Schumer, Amy Poehler, Ava DuVernay, Greta Gerwig, Kerry Washington and Lena Waithe.
 

The New York Times Decade in Pictures

The New York Times pored over 10 years of images, of moments both fresh and faded, to tell the story of the past decade. Included in this review is Ashley Gilbertson’s April 27, 2013, photo taken at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. Staff Sgt. Miguel Deynes prepared a final uniform for Capt. Aaron R. Blanchard. Captain Blanchard and his Apache co-pilot, First Lt. Robert J. Hess, were killed in a rocket attack in Afghanistan.

The New York Times Year in Pictures

“There is a kind of visual language and literacy and responsibility that comes with photographing someone who is in a vulnerable situation, and how do you do it with dignity.” — Christopher Lee
