John Ranard, a documentary photographer who depicted the grim realities of life in modern Russia and who presented intimate views of boxing and his own fatal illness, died May 14 of liver cancer at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. He was 56. Ranard was best known for contributing the photographs that accompanied Joyce Carol Oates' text in the 1987 book "On Boxing." Oates said the idea for the book was Ranard's, who wrote to her after reading an essay she had written about the sport.

Walter De Maria, the artist whose monumental sculptures and installations combined the simplicity of minimalism with a love of scale, died Thursday in Los Angeles. He was 77. The cause of death was a stroke suffered two months ago, according to Elizabeth Childress, the director of his New York studio. She said the artist lived in New York but was in Southern California visiting family and friends when he suffered the stroke. De Maria's art was often noted for its epic size, creating a sense of awe in viewers at locations as varied as the New Mexico desert and the urban wilds of downtown New York.

There were no immediate signs of clashes, but tensions were apparent as the afternoon wore on and police erected metal barricades around most of the sprawling square to hem in protesters.

I was bent over a food processor at a Saturday afternoon cooking class in Hartford, Conn., a few weeks ago, toiling on my assigned recipe of baba ghanouj, when a fellow student came up behind me and asked: "You really like Oprah Winfrey, huh?" How, I wondered, did this woman know? Could she see inside my soul? Was it written on my forehead? Close. It was written on my back.

Lisa Howard switched her voter registration from Republican to Democratic in 2008 so she could caucus for Barack Obama, so impressed was she by the fresh-faced candidate's calls for hope and change. While the 50-year-old supports Obama's efforts to fix the economy — the top issue here and everywhere else — she doesn't know if she'll be supporting him again in the 2012 presidential contest. The real estate agent plans to survey the GOP field, though to be honest she has been too busy staying afloat to get involved.

"Children had never entered my mind, and it was no secret that Balanchine thought ballerinas shouldn't have them." -- Suzanne Farrell, "Holding On to the Air" * Her thick black hair twists off her forehead into a ballerina bun, every strand in place. Her feet are bare, the ropy veins betraying their strength. Instead of a leotard, she wears a demure black bathing suit, faded by chlorine.
