Photograph by Cameron Davidson (@camdavidsonphoto) Personal project on the impact of wheat in modern agriculture. As a person who deals with celiac disease everyday, I thought it would be interesting to go back to the Plalouse region of Washington and Idaho and photograph the wheat harvest and landscape. After five days of ingesting wheat dust, it hit me and I suffered for a day. The Palouse is a beautiful region full of gently rolling hills that are challenging to combines. They often use out-riggers to stabilize the machines as they till or harvest the fields.

Photo by @ljohnphoto for @rippleeffectimages. Kajal appeared as a child in height and weight, but this slender 12 year old with blue rag ribbons in her hair had seen, smelled and survived more than most adults. She had worked the pile of garbage since she was 8. At the age of 12, she earned about 200-300 rupees ($2.90-$4.36USD) a day. In the years she had labored at the pile, she had found a pair of gold earrings, a 500 rupee note, and a dead woman with a knife in her stomach. Determined to reinvent herself, Kajal’s dream was to continue her education, a dream which was nurtured by the learning centers of @Chintan.India. They provided her more than knowledge - she built the confidence to believe in herself. She left her family to escape arranged marriage and today is happily married with a son of her own. She spends each evenings teaching Hindi and English to children in her neighborhood, passing on the knowledge she gained from Chintan. #PhotographyForGood#photojournalism#women#girls#children#education#india#determination#inspiration#opportunity#empowerment

Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix@tooyoungtowed // A young girl cares for her relative in Meerwala, Pakistan. Somewhere in the world, every 2 seconds, a girl is married. When a child becomes a bride at a young age, she loses the chance to go to school, the right to make decisions about her health and the ability to determine her future. In #Pakistan, one in five girls are married before they turn 18. In 2011, @natgeo published a story of mine titled @tooyoungtowed, I’ve since created a nonprofit organization of the same name to #empowergirls and #endchildmarriage Through Dec. 31 only, you can purchase this print or other #holidaygifts and support our programs that #empowergirls and #endchildmarriage.

Photography by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz Ounianga Kebir (also known as Lake Yoa), the second largest lake in Northern Chad, is in the process of being cut into pieces by fingers of sand that blow through breaks in the surrounding cliffs. The heat and strong wind cause a high rate of evaporation that has turned the potable ground water into a lake that is saltier than sea water, and devoid of fish. The lake is punctuated by promotories of Nubian sandstone, the permeable rock that stores and transports the water underground, and it is stained white by salts leaching out by evaporation.

Photo by @joemcnallyphoto. The long hallways of memory. In the 1920’s, Margaret Sellers, aged 2, came to the United States on a steamship out of Scotland, and landed at Ellis Island, shown here. She is holding her original Immigrant Identification Card, issued to her on the island. Ninety now, she has kept it all these years. Many thanks to the @saveellisisland organization for arranging a trip to Ellis for Margaret. A wonderful and feisty lady, she was a joy and an honor to photograph. The hallway depicted here is in the old hospital wing out on Ellis, which the Save Ellis Foundation strives mightily to preserve. Its’ an important task, as there is so much history to seen, and felt, out there on that Island of Hope. #immigrants#history#saveellisisland#portrait#ellisisland#history

Photo by @dguttenfelder. Headlamp-lit climbers make their way through wind and rain in a single file line up the slopes of Japan’s sacred Mt. Fuji hoping to reach the summit of the 12,388-foot volcano by sunrise. Respectful of nature, and respectful of one another, hundreds of thousands of Japanese climb Mt. Fuji annually in what feels to me like a shared experience and mass pilgrimage. #onassignment for @natgeotravel

Photo by @joepetersburger/@thephotosociety // REST STOP // Common #kingfisher is one of my most favorite photographic topic. Their beauty, their behavior is just amazing. However, try to imagine a bird perching in front of you, only couple feet away and doing nothing. Nothing for hours... Indeed, he deserved it, because he caught lot of #fish for his #chicks beforehand. Taken only about 50 miles from my residency in #Hungary. Travel less, discover your backyard, reduce your ecological footprint!

Photo by @rezaphotography Transhumance #Afghanistan,#Badakshan,#Faizabad. The nomads. Their life of abandonment always fascinated me. In peacetime, only the spring and its green pastures, then the winter and its rigor in mountains, give rhythm to their exodus. #mountain#nomad#kutchi#koutchi#transhumance#family#travel#exodus#children#horse#رضادقتى#journey#photojournalism#photojournalist#reza#rezaphoto#rezadeghati#rezaphotography#rezaphotojournalist#webistan@thephotosociety

48 years : Self-portraits by Kevin Schafer – @schaferpho@natgeo -– I first traveled to Cuba in 1970, age 18, to cut sugar cane. I returned this year - 48 years later - to document rare and endangered Cuban birds. Cuba hasn’t changed a great deal over the intervening years, but I sure have... #cuba

Photo by @catherinekarnow // It’s such a crazy story how I met Luciano ten years ago. I was scouting for my Italy Photo Workshop, soon to be its ninth year (May 8 - 17, 2019), and looking for all sorts of interesting places and subjects I could incorporate into a workshop of variety, depth, beauty, #amusement and #charm. I was on a busy road outside Viterbo with my producer, when this cute little vintage Fiat 500 zipped by us. “Oh”, I exclaimed, “we should find a car club with those cute Cinquecentos - wonder if that guy knows one, let’s ask him!” We sped up to come alongside him and madly gestured for him to pull over. At first he looked terrified, but when he saw it was just us two girls, he acquiesced and pulled over, getting out of the car to greet us. He seemed a bit confused as to what a photo workshop was, but he was indeed a car club member and gave us the president’s contact info. Then he invited us to see his other two #Cinquecentos in his garage nearby. This photo was taken in his cave of a garage - in fact a cave dating to Etruscan times, he told us. That was almost a decade ago, and now Luciano and I are dear friends. Every year he and the local Cinquecento Club meet us and our workshop guests for a car parade through a nearby ancient village. We end the day with the drivers treating us to gelato and final hugs until next year. Follow me @catherinekarnow to see more photos of #Umbria and the characters we meet.
