On the hustle behind the lens SOMA: Photographers Steven Shore and William Eggle-ston have said that they consider themselves modern day anthropologists.

In the Coen Brothers newest film, the actor is not “A Serious Man” The Coen Brothers have always found witty and inventive ways of introducing audiences to their larger-than-life characters and stories.
