Rush Hour On packed subways and crowded highways, billions of people participate in a short-distance population shift twice a day: the rhythmic ritual of the daily commute to and from work. More than 300 million people use the United States’ transport systems every day, and in 2012 a whopping 76 percent of them got to work by driving alone, a U.S. Department of Transportation report out last week noted. Associated Press photographers the world over set out to see how workers on five continents endure their morning and evening rush-hour commutes. To read more, visit AP’s Big Story.

Everybody Knows This is Nowhere | Andrea Gjestvang This project explores the restless lives of adolescents growing up in Finnmark, the northernmost part of Norway. To a large extent Norway’s increasing wealth is due to fish, oil and minerals from this part of the country; yet several small communities are left as nowhere lands were local prospects may be limited. Privatization of the fishing industry in the 70’s made unemployment, the abandonment of fish factories and depopulation a part of reality. The young generation in Finnmark is the future; they carry with them the responsibility of keeping their small hometowns alive and building sustainable businesses in the area. But adolescents in these remote areas face different challenges than other teenagers; the Internet, magazines and television allow them the same input of popular culture, yet they do not have an equal chance to partake.

The dark side of denim | Robin Hammond Suppliers to Gap and Levis poison the heart of one of Africa’s poorest countries A destitute army of ragpickers patrol the vast waste-dump before me. A long trailer overflowing with the discarded remnants of Lesotho’s garment industry rocks as it bumps over a clearing between mounds of waste. In the twilight of dusk I can see tiny frames of children as they run between collapsed and burning pillars of denim and cotton. As the solid waste from garment factories is being dumped and burned, untreated liquid waste – dark blue dye – is being poured into the Caledon River polluting drinking water and killing river life.

au cœur de Fukushima Ils nous plongent au cœur de Fukushima, en zone interdite « Fukushima No Go Zone » est un projet photographique d’un binôme artistique : Carlos Ayesta et Guillaume Bression. Ils nous plongent au cœur de la zone sinistrée pour offrir au monde un léger aperçu des lieux après la double catastrophe. Carlos et Guillaume vont se rendre à plusieurs reprises dans la zone sinistrée de Fukushima après l’explosion de la centrale nucléaire. Aujourd’hui, la région n’est plus qu’un no man’s land de 1000 kilomètres carrés. Une zone morte, abandonnée à elle-même de manière brutale. Les deux photographes vont avoir l’idée de faire revenir d’anciens habitants (et non des acteurs) dans la zone interdite. On vous présente l’un de leurs cinq projets : Le making-off des deux photographes en « expédition » est également à découvrir : Source :
pauljphotoroll.tumblr Most people closed their window shades and watched a movie on seatback screens. Meanwhile, thousands of feet below, fascinating stories were unfolding like this small volcano formed by a new rift zone in the Gulf of California, pulling the Baja peninsula away from mainland Mexico at a rate of 1cm a year. What will it look like in a million years? There were clusters of fishing boats, fiberglass skiffs surrounded by little white dots which I assume were seagulls waiting for discarded fish.

A Ritual of Exile « VII Photo A Ritual of Exile The women are forced to live in rudimentary ‘chaupadi’ sheds, which are distanced from their family homes, they are forbidden to touch family members, eat at the same table and bathe in the same water. Indeed, the food the women are given comprises of nothing more than boiled rice and is thrown to them, as you may to an animal, by families members forbidden to touch these tainted women. Chaupadi is a severe and damaging practice declared illegal by Nepal’s Supreme Court in 2005. Three years later, the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare issued guidelines meant to eradicate the practice. Despite such legislation the practice is rife in these isolated communities. Kept alive by tradition and taboo, women are scarred not to follow the ritual of chaupadi with stories of ill omen; stories of men trembling and falling ill, of snake attacks brought about by women’s sin. As one women, questioning chaupadi, asked, “Goddesses are women, aren’t they?

In its best possible manifestation, this produces an electricity larger than the music itself that magnetizes and unifies the crowd into one cosmic being, hearts seemingly pounding together, each one in sync with the other, all in sync with the music. Besides communing with the band, a very real reason for positioning oneself at the front of this heaving mass of fans is this feeling of being part of a greater whole. Sandy Carson’s We Were There is the culmination of eight years spent in the pit, on assignment at music festivals and shows in Austin, Texas. As we are a planet of spectators, turning a camera on the spectators themselves is a natural offshoot of photographing an event.
