Ai Weiwei won't let the public forget it. Over the weekend, a photo emerged of China's most famous dissident artist imitating Kurdi's dead body. The photo was shot by Rohit Chawla for an upcoming issue of one of India's largest news publications -- India Today -- as part of an article on the artist. It was unveiled at last weekend's India Art Fair, in an exhibition entitled "The Artists," which displayed photographs of artists from the publication's archive.
The idea came to him during a visit to Tokyo, in 2006. "When I first got high up, the scale of the city was awe-inspiring," James recalls. "To be in it, it's bustling and chaotic, but when you come out of those lifts, you don't have that frantic feeling of thousands of images all around you. You just have this metropolis. "I knew I liked the feeling of looking out of the window of that city. But if I just took a photo of the city, it wouldn't be that interesting."
Hong Kong's vertiginous rise has meant the demise of mom-and-pop-style barbers, diners and pawn shops, as well as the removal of their iconic neon signs. But the city lives on through Tony Lai and Maggie Chan's intricate models that capture an old way life -- much of which no longer exists.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
