ZURICH.- For its inaugural exhibition, Galerie Edwynn Houk Zur Stockeregg presents AMERICAN PIONEERS OF COLOR, a collection of modern and vintage prints by Stephen Shore, Joel Meyerowitz, and William Eggleston, widely acknowledged as the early masters of color photography in the United States. Their pioneering use of color in the 1970s was a bold departure from the long established tradition of black and white photography, which had dominated the medium from its inception, and laid the foundations for contemporary photography today.



Walls of Waterfalls

Walls of waterfalls

at Iguacu Falls in Argentina as seen from Brazil. These falls are remarkable when you consider that there are close to 300 separate falls that are spread over a distance of 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) with a total vertical drop of about 280 feet (85 meters). For comparison, Niagara Falls in North America has a width of 0.7 mile with a total drop of about 170 feet, while Victoria Falls in Africa is 1.0 mile wide with a drop of 360 feet. The view from the end of the walkway (see inset note) gives an Argentine perspective of the falls.

There are so many ways to fall—in love, asleep, even flat on your face. This hour, Radiolab dives into stories of great falls. 

We jump into a black hole, take a trip over Niagara Falls, upend some myths about falling cats, and plunge into our favorite songs about falling.
