Meditative Michael Jackson themed drone.

Natalya Estemirova (1958-2009) was a Russian human rights activist, working for the human rights organization Memorial. She was particularly concerned with uncovering unjust punitive practices, and used her position as a journalist to bring human rights violations to light.

She filmed short documentaries and took photographs that revealed the effects of the Second Chechen War, especially on children. She was rewarded with numerous international awards for her efforts. Sadly, she was abducted and assassinated in 2009, and the attackers were never found.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley photographed by Dick Zimmerman, 1994.

Dick Zimmerman: Having spent an entire day with them, I saw some magical things. They talked to each other very quietly like lovers would. For the first shot, I told them to stand close. They immediately put their arms around each other and Lisa cuddled right up to Michael. I told Lisa to sit in a chair and Michael to kneel beside her. He put his arm around her and pulled her head to his chest, while Lisa tenderly took hold of his hand.

Between shots, they were whispering and giggling to each other. They were so happy it was hard to keep their attention on the camera. They were so much into each other.

They are so happy with the photos. Michael put Xs over the ones he liked, and the pages of photos were covered with Xs. But the loving ones with Lisa, showing their happiness, were his favorites.
