  • Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu

    Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: “Run free, comrade, we’ve left the old world behind!”Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France’s cultural history.Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP) … Gökşin Sipahioğlu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao’s revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Gökşin brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:“At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The students wrecked everything, ripped up paving stones, chopped down trees, erected barricades, set cars on fire. Later, in a matter of minutes, the CRS [riot police] charged the students. I asked myself, ‘Why hadn’t they charged earlier?’ I soon understood why. The authorities wanted the public to see the devastation.”While in Paris, Gökşin realized that a network was sorely needed for distribution of news photos, and he founded Sipa Press photo news agency in 1973 with American journalist Phyllis Springer. Encouraging young photographers and giving many their first chance, Gökşin created a generation of photojournalists.Photography by Gökşin Sipahioğlu/SIPA“May 68, photographs by Gökşin Sipahioğlu,” is on view at Galerie Basia Embiricos and Photo 12 Galerie in Paris through May 25, 2018. It was curated by Ferit Duzyol in collaboration with Sipa Press. _____See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr.

  • Israel becomes first country to deploy 'world's most advanced' F-35 fighter jet amid doubts about funding in UK news

    Israel says it has become the first country in the world to carry out combat airstrikes with the new F-35 stealth fighter, the advanced warplane that will soon be used by Britain and other militaries around the world. The general did not say where the Israeli F-35s had been used but Israel has carried out repeated strikes in Syria in the last three years. It has also hit Hizbollah targets in southern Lebanon but much less frequently. Israel is also believed to be carrying out secret strikes against jihadists in the Sinai desert in coordination with the Egyptian military.  “We have performed the first operational F-35 strike in the world. We attacked twice in the Middle East using the F-35 – we are the first in the world to do so,” Major General Amikam Norkin, the head of the Israeli air force, said in a briefing to foreign air force officers on Tuesday. Maj Gen Norkin’s comments sparked widespread interest in military aviation circles worldwide. “The Israeli Air Force has proved once again its ability to pioneer combat testing of new aircraft,” wrote the Aviationist, a military blog. The F-35s are being produced primarily for the US military but they will eventually be used by armed forces across the globe, including in Britain, Australia and Japan.  Britain has ordered 138 F-35s, which is not without its critics Credit: SAC Tim Laurence/MoD The UK has committed to purchasing 138 of the aircraft, built in the US by Lockheed Martin, and has so far bought 48 jets at a cost of £9.1 billion. But The Telegraphrevealed last week that government is reconsidering its pledge to purchase the remaining 90 because of the vast cost of the £190 million American stealth fighter.  The Ministry of Defence is reportedly thinking of instead about buying European-made Eurofighter Typhoons, which are roughly half the cost of the F-35, and made by a European consortium that includes the UK. A decision to go back on the F-35 purchases could spark a major row between the UK and the Trump administration, which has made a priority of selling US weapons to American allies. Israel received its first F-35 fighters in December 2016 and declared within a year that the jets were operational and ready for combat.  The F-35 is the most expensive but technically advanced fighter jet in history. Maj Gen Norkin showed the foreign officers a photograph of an Israeli F-35 over Beirut, in what was widely seen as a warning to Hizbollah about Israel’s ability to carry out strikes in Lebanon.  Eurofighter Typhoon v F-35 An Israeli F-16 was shot down by a Syrian missile in February of this year, the first time an Israeli aircraft has been lost in combat since 1982.  Defence analysts said the loss may have only increased Israel’s eagerness to deploy the F-35, which has advanced stealth capabilities that help to shield it from enemy missiles.  So far at least 14 F-35s have been delivered to the UK. British pilots are still testing and training the aircraft and they have not yet been deployed in combat by the RAF or the Royal Navy.
