The U.S. federal government will partially shut down after lawmakers failed to compromise on an emergency spending bill before a midnight deadline.
With the Senate recess in effect until 9:30 am EDT, Capitol Hill’s wild Monday comes to an unfortunate close in the early morning hours of Tuesday.
It is unclear how long a government shutdown will last. The funding gap will leave some essential functions like national security intact but sharply cut many regulatory agencies, furloughing up to a million federal workers.

Kelly Angood, creator:
The Videre works without a lens, instead using a simple pinhole to take photographs onto medium format film. I have translated my original design into a beautiful and hardwearing do-it-yourself kit so that everyone can make their own Videre camera and learn about pinhole photography in style.
The kit will be printed and die-cut onto thick recycled card and supplied with easy to follow instructions and a spare medium format spool. I also plan to produce a short instructional video, which will be viewable online alongside a virtual gallery space where pinhole photographs that have been taken with the camera can be submitted.
