Following her death, hoards of photos and unprocessed film were found in a storage container. Collector John Maloof bought the lot. Here he sets off to find out more about this enigmatic figure, instating her reputation as a forgotten great of 20th century photography.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Released: 18/07/2014
Chemically augmented apes are doing well, humans badly in the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the competent first update of the classic sci fi franchise. Gary Oldman is antagonistic, one of a few homosapien plague survivors, while Andy Serkis plays his lead adversary in Caesar the head simian. Blockbuster fun with added lessons in diplomacy.
