Behind the Scenes at the World's Most Fascinating Workshops
- In 2015, German-born photographer Katrin Korfmann was living in China; her husband, sculptor Jens Pfeifer, was doing a three-month artist’s residency there.
- One day, Pfeifer gave Korfmann a tour of the factory that was fabricating some of his sculptures.
- Thus began three years of travel that took Korfmann around the world: a marble production company in Carrara, Italy; a ballet rehearsal in Amsterdam; an 11th-century tannery in Morocco; a glass factory Anxi, China.
- At each location, Korfmann mounted her camera on a 20-foot-high tripod and, over the course of several hours, took hundreds of photos of the workspace—a process she likens to “scanning” the location with her camera.
- Back in her studio, Korfmann then digitally stitched together the photos to create a single, bird’s-eye view of the various fabrication processes, a technique that took her and her assistants anywhere from a week to a month.
'Even if I'm telling the truth, that makes me a liar': Trump pushes back against an interview with Mueller, says he'll 'stay out' of the Russia investigation
- WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump said on Monday he was worried that any statements under oath he provides to Special Counsel Robert Mueller could be used to bring perjury charges against him as part of the probe into Russia's electoral interference.
- Despite his concerns, Trump did not comment on whether he would ultimately agree to an interview with Mueller, who is, among other things, investigating whether Trump's campaign team colluded with Russians during the 2016 election and whether Trump has obstructed justice in the probe.
- As he has done almost daily on Twitter, Trump railed against the probe in the Oval Office interview with Reuters, repeatedly calling it a disgrace and arguing that Mueller and other members of his team were biased.
- In the interview, Trump blamed the investigation for hampering his efforts to strengthen the country's relationship with Russia and for sowing discord among the American public.

REA CEO Tracey Fellows dumps all but 12 of her shares
- REA CEO Tracey Fellows has sold almost every single one of her REA shares, netting $911,490.06, according to an extraordinary 3Y notice lodged after the ASX closed on Monday.
- The sales took place on Friday, and included all but 12 of her REA shares, worth $1120.20 at Monday's close.
- On June 14, REA filed a notice that Fellows had been granted 12 shares as part of that year's employee share purchase plans, which presumably remain under escrow.
- Strangely, REA's dividends were paid out this week: by selling on Friday, Fellows appears to have given up on 62¢ a share, which given her 10,206 shares would have been worth $6327.72.
Nick Foles injures shoulder during preseason game
- FOXBOROUGH, Mass.
- (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles left Thursday's exhibition game against the New England Patriots with a shoulder strain.
- The Super Bowl MVP appeared to be in pain when he was hit by Patriots defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn in the right arm as he reared back to throw in the first half.
- The ball popped loose, and linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley scooped it up and ran it back for a 54-yard touchdown.
- Third-stringer Nate Sudfield took over at quarterback on the Eagles' next possession.
- Foles took over for starter Carson Wentz last season and took Philadelphia to the Super Bowl, beating the Patriots 41-33.
- Wentz is expected to return to 11-on-11 drills next week, but it's not certain he will be ready for the regular- season opener.
