I enjoy photographing religious events, especially those which involve late evening and early morning shoots.

Los Angeles: the World in a City

October 30, 2014

Los Angeles, United States

By Lucy Nicholson      

Show biz, sunshine, surfing and traffic are some of the first images that come to mind when people picture Los Angeles.

Xtreme Justice

San Diego, United States 

By Mike Blake

This is a call to adventure. The Xtreme Justice League takes their inspiration from comic books and applies it to real-life situations. I followed them as they donned their superhero outfits and patrolled the streets of San Diego late at night. 

The Savage Mountain

Northern Pakistan
By Wolfgang Rattay

I am addicted to mountains. Whenever possible I spend every free minute climbing or hiking. It’s the same with my son who works in an outdoor shop.

Moving a hospital

October 22, 2014

Charleroi, Belgium
By Yves Herman

This was a very unusual move - an entire hospital. Patients and equipment were transferred from the Old Civil Hospital in Charleroi to a new building a few miles away. It was also a race against time, as the whole operation had to be completed within a weekend.

Cut off

Moscow, Russia

Artist Pyotr Pavlensky sits on a wall after he cut off a part of his earlobe during his protest action titled "Segregation" in Moscow

A fence, four meters high. Three things: the artist, a knife and an ear. Outside, 2 degrees Celsius. One second– and a stream of blood, obeying the universal law of gravity, flows down, adding a new color to the picture.  The artist, completely naked, will spend the next two hours with a knife in his right hand and a cut-off earlobe in the left.  He doesn’t blink, or perhaps I cannot see it. He is silent. He looks, but he doesn’t see. He’s frozen and only the cold air that hits him, shakes him, gives him shivers, brings out a man in him and not a Roman statue that materialized on the wall  enclosing the Serbsky State Scientific Center for Social and Forensic Psychiatry.  And of course, the blood, still flowing and which I will later see on his leg and his buttocks. A passing pigeon sits briefly next to him, taking a part in the protest – the artist and the wall become one.

Recently I was granted access inside a California state prison to photograph the Actors’ Gang Prison Project final presentation. The project is funded by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and aims to rehabilitate inmates through the arts.

Decline of the Catskills

October 17, 2014

Catskills, New York

By Carlo Allegri

Dubbed the “Borscht Belt,” in its heyday the Catskills was a bustling vacation resort region popular with middle and working-class New Yorkers of Jewish origin. Situated about 100 miles north of New York City, people flocked to the area to escape the stifling summer heat of the city. Many families would relocate to the area for several months, with men visiting their wives and children on the weekends.

Living on minimum wage

October 17, 2014

Delores Leonard is a 28 year-old single mother raising two daughters Erin, 6, and Emmarie, 8, on the South Side of Chicago. She’s been a fast food worker at a McDonald’s restaurant for 7 years and makes $8.25 an hour. It’s her only source of work income and she’s never made more than minimum wage working at the drive-thru window.

A rescue at sea

October 15, 2014

Mediterranean Sea

By Darrin Zammit Lupi

A barely perceptible dot on the horizon, disappearing every few seconds behind the rolling waves, a rubber dinghy carrying a group of migrants is very easily missed if you don’t know where to look.
