The Alice Austen House is the only museum devoted to a woman photographer in the United States, and one of very few preserved artist’s homes and studios in New York City. Alice Austen, born in 1866, was a trailblazer – a rebel who broke away from the constraints of her Victorian environment and forged an independent life that pushed boundaries of acceptable female behavior and social rules. Her family’s home, Clear Comfort, now the museum, shaped Alice Austen’s experiences, served as her first studio space and darkroom, and opened up to her a world of subjects beyond her comfortable, upper-middle class suburban existence.

Baghdad, IraqAfter the destruction heaped upon archaeological sites by the Islamic State group, the collections at the National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad have taken on greater significance. It's now one of the only places you can find relics from the ancient cities that fell into the extremists' hands. As many as 4,000 archaeological sites are still under the domination of the Islamic State group and around 100 sites have been destroyed, according to Iraqi Culture Minister Firyad Rwandzi. The sites in their grip show the multiple civilizations that rose and fell during Iraq's long history, ranging from mosques, churches and small shrines to large sites of old cities. Fortunately, some of the artifacts from the sites in northern Iraq had been moved long ago to the National Museum.
