An Iranian Journey | a photo story by Hossein Fatemi | Panos Pictures Photographing in his native Iran for over a decade, Hossein Fatemi shows a face of Iran far removed from the images of flag-burning demonstrators and turbanned mullahs that have dominated news reporting from the Islamic Republic.~~Before the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran under the Shah had close relations with the United States which saw it as a reliable ally in a volatile region and an important bulwark against the neighbouring Soviet Union. With its vast oil reserves, Iran was a pivotal power in the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East and the Shah's drive to secularise the country aligned with Western intentions for the region. All this changed, however, with the revolution that brought Ayatollah Khomeni to power and inaugurated decades of virulent anti-Americanism. For over twenty years, the news and imagery coming out of Iran have been dominated by chador-clad women, flag burning demonstrations and the reports of nuclear skulduggery.

NOTES FOR AN EPILOGUE (2011 - ongoing) Spiritual tradition and physical heritage are simultaneously disintegrating in Romania. Time is beginning to undermine centuries-old traditions preserved in tiny villages, in communities of only a few houses, as well as the bastions of the communist era’s enforced industrialisation, which became part and parcel of Romania’s recent history.

Photography from Romania Photography from Romania As I've written here previously, I have a particular interest in photography from Romania -- and more specifically the Transylvania region where I have family roots and have traveled in the past (including the image above, taken on the outskirts of the city Medias, in Transylvania).There seems to be a certain energy and momentum rising for artists in Romania, propelling them onto a larger international stage.
In 1963 my family moved to Greece for a year while my father taught at the University of Athens. We returned to the USA in 1964 and then moved back to Greece in 1968. The whole time we were there my father was taking photos. In 2005 I scanned my father's slides of Greece and undertook the task of cleaning them up.

Delta Dreams | a photo story by Petrut Calinescu | Panos Pictures The Danube Delta, Europe's most pristine river delta, is a 5000 sq km expanse of low-lying wetland that has remained relatively untouched and sparsely populated, despite lying along the faultline where empires have repeatedly clashed over centuries. ~~At the end of its nearly 2,900 km course, the Danube, Europe's longest river, spreads out into countless tentacles over a huge, watery plain along the border between Romania and Ukraine. The Danube Delta, Europe's second largest after the great Volga Delta on the Caspian coast, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991 and has remained relatively pristine, largely due to its relative isolation from major urban centres and a very thinly spread population of around 20,000.

rian dundon – fringe life: negotiating modernity in chinas provincial grey zones Hover over the image for navigation and full screen controls Rian Dundon A view from inside the other new China play this essay This project re-examines China’s shifting cultural norms, economic transitions, and socio-political changes from within the context of its marginalized interior regions. Moving beyond the urban-centric/scenic/iconic structures, which dominate the current visual record of China, it considers the cultural dynamism of smaller provincial cities and rural prefectures far removed from China’s coastal metropole.

Burma's political prisoners – gallery | World news Burma has said it is set to release prisoners, apparently including political detainees. More than 2,000 political prisoners – including monks, students, journalists, lawyers, MPs and over 300 members of Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition National League for Democracy – are incarcerated in horrendous conditions. Former prisoners are photographed with the name of a current political prisoner written on their palm. The photographs are taken from Abhaya - Burma's Fearlessness, by James Mackay, published by River Books in November 2011 (ISBN 978 616 7339 139, price £19.95)
