“We are watching the beginnings of the defiant self-assertion of a new generation of Americans, a generation who are looking forward to finishing their education with no jobs, no future, but still saddled with enormous and unforgivable debt,” Graeber wrote in a Sept. 25 editorial published online by the Guardian. “Is it really surprising they would like to have a word with the financial magnates who stole their future?”

“My first major project was a documentation of 19th Century New York State Insane Asylums.  The exhibit “Silent Voices” travelled for several years.  The project was funded by The New York State Council on the Arts.”- Jon Crispin Asylums.

Jon Crispin also has a new Kickstarter-funded project photographing the abandoned suitcases of the patients who lived here.  Learn more here:

The fact is, you don’t need to try that hard to get a good coffee in Oslo. You could go to any of the more than 20 locations of Kaffebrenneriet and get a drink made with more skill and better ingredients than almost anything you’ll find in Paris, or Rome, or a number of places you think of as having a vibrant coffee culture. While many cities are resting on their creaking reputations, Oslo is forging a new standard.
