FROM Iwan Baan
Iwan Baan Captures Cities from the Sky The Highland Corridor that runs between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard here in LA has seen a huge transformation in the last few years. The trend was started by furniture dealers Blackman Cruz and Joel Chen, then art heavyweights like Shaun Regen of Regen Projects and New York transplant Perry Rubenstein moved in. Rubenstein's latest show features Iwan Baan, a Dutch photographer who launched his career with gritty and beautiful photographs of iconic buildings, including Michael Maltzan’s Inner City Arts in LA. He’s become known for photographing cities from the sky to better capture the social and economic story of a place. And he seems to know helicopter pilots wherever he goes. This lead to him capturing perhaps his most career-changing photograph—of Manhattan, split into dark and light. He tells the story, which includes arriving in New York one day before Hurricane Sandy, on a commission for Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron. The series is called "The City and the Storm," and it is on show along with other works by Iwan Baan at Perry Rubenstein at 1215 N. Highland Avenue.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
