Why You Like This Photo

Brian Dilg
Authors:
Brian Dilg

What you see is very different from what you think you see... There's a lot going on behind the scenes when you like a photograph. Maybe something is tricking your brain into believing a static image is alive with motion. But how? Or maybe you're being drawn in by a rich, high-contrast subject. But what's so great about really black blacks and really white whites? And if the composition is subverting your expectations, where did those expectations come from in the first place?To answer these questions, international award-winning cinematographer Brian Dilg blends photographic fundamentals like exposure, focus, and composition with the latest developments in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and evolutionary biology, in a thrilling exploration of how a photo works, how your brain perceives it, and why you like the result.

Primate Change

Vybarr Cregan-Reid
Authors:
Vybarr Cregan-Reid

IF YOU THINK YOU ARE YOU, THINK AGAIN.PRIMATE CHANGE is a wide-ranging, polemical look at how and why the human body has changed since humankind first got up on two feet. Spanning the entirety of human history - from primate to transhuman - Vybarr Cregan-Reid's book investigates where we came from, who we are today and how modern technology will change us beyond recognition.In the last two hundred years, humans have made such a tremendous impact on the world that our geological epoch is about to be declared the 'Anthropocene', or the Age of Man. But while we have been busy changing the shape of the world we inhabit, the ways of living that we have been building have, as if under the cover of darkness, been transforming our bodies and altering the expression of our DNA, too.PRIMATE CHANGE beautifully unscrambles the complex architecture of our modern human bodies, built over millions of years and only starting to give up on us now.'Our bodies are in a shock. Modern living is as bracing to the human body as jumping through a hole in the ice. Our bodies do not know what century they were born into and they are defending and deforming themselves in response'(p) 2018 Octopus Publishing Group

The Goodness of Avocado

Lucy Jessop
Authors:
Lucy Jessop

Avocados are having a moment, and for good reason. Creamy, moreish and nutritious, there's no wonder we're all going mad for them. Yes, they're high in fat, but it's the good kind, plus they have antioxidant properties, help protect against damaging free radicals and help maintain healthy blood pressure. With chapters divided by texture, Avocado offers an abundance of recipes to enjoy this healthy fruit. Whether you like it smooth, smashed, chunky or whole, there doesn't seem to be a way that this nutrient packed fruit can't be eaten. Smashed on toast for a snack, topped with eggs for brunch, whizzed into feel-good smoothies, chopped into zingy salsas to serve with fish or meat, sliced into on-the-go lunches, shaken into a salad dressing or swapped with cream to make an indulgent dessert, the mouth-watering list goes on.

I’m Absolutely Fine!

Annabel Rivkin & Emilie McMeekan of The Midult

**From the creators of The Midult**I'm absolutely fine but I slightly need to pee, I followed the road less travelled and now I don't know where the hell I am, I may bleed to death shaving my legs, I just ate the fridge, my soul aches, ducking hell, my sock is slipping off inside my shoe, another week has ended without me becoming accidentally rich, I just put my keys in the fridge, my jeans hate me, unexpected object in the bagging area, I haven't slept since 2012, I've got road rage, I'll have a café mocha vodka valium latte to go please, where's my phone? My anxieties have anxieties, no... not like that - here, I'll do it, do I have to do everything? WTF?Is it just me? We gnaw on that, don't we? Is it just me? Well, look around. Look at the egg-freezing, the brain freezing, the soul freezing, the terror, the Tinder, the rage, the resolution, the 'hear me roar', the panic, the power, the regret, the chin hairs, the hyper-connectedness, the divorce, the shame, the empathy, the conversation, the sheer potential. Welcome to Midulthood: a place where we recognise that we are all more alike than we are unalike. Of course it's not just you. If we're not in it together, we're not in it at all...(p) 2018 Octopus Publishing Group
