This seems apropos, given the very entertaining shenanigans at the soon-to-be-ex Kodak Theater in Hollywood last night. Intelligent Life, a satellite of The Economist, actually published a picture of a movie star on its March/April cover...that had no Photoshop retouching done on it. Very daring, and a great rarity in this day and age—so much so that Editor Tim de Lisle wrote a blog post about it (his comment about the fragrance is exquisite—I loved that).
It is a "curious sign of the times" that a photograph could be unusual for being just a photograph, isn't it? Looks like there's intelligent life at Intelligent Life.
Steve Forrest was the photographer. Graham Black is the Art Director at IL.

And a P.S.: Congratulations, France!
