Back home – Photographer: Gianmarco Panucci | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Between 1999 and 2001 in Montes de Maria area, wich includes the regions of Sucre and Bolivar, armed groups of people commited 72 massacres, considered to be the most serious in the history of this Country.
The one occured in Chengue was definitely one of the most violent.
On the 17th of January 2001 in this village of 1300 people, 27 died and all the others were forced to leave.
Ten years later only 60 out of 1300 people who lived there before, came back to start over again.
Life condition though is difficult: people who used to live quietly before the rise of paramilitarism, are now struggling in the less inhabited places of Montes de Maria zone and one of the poorest village of Colombia. - Gianmarco Panucci

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

My project wants to document the daily lives of the Chechen refugees living in the Pankisi Valley, Republic of Georgia. They came to Georgia about 12 years ago following the wars that ravaged the Republic of Chechnya in 1994-96 and 1999-2000. 

Ever since they have been trying to relocate to a third country or to start a new life. Some of them managed to be relocated to Northern America or to some European states. 

Some others stayed behind and were left in a legal limbo. It takes about 10 years to be able to qualify for Georgian citizenship. Some of them still have no documents: as a consequence it is difficult to be integrated, find a job and live a normal life.- Gianni Giosue

[INFOGRAPHIC] Who uses Social Media?

[INFOGRAPHIC] Who uses Social Media? | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
Think you know social and who uses Social Media? Well, think again….

A recent study from the Pew Research Center and Docstoc reveal some surprising details on just who uses social media and which platforms they’re using.
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

This is what we didn´t necessarily think: "..despite being somewhat financially disadvantaged, 72% of adults with annual household incomes below $30,000 use social networks, more than those with higher earnings."


When social media becomes more and more a tool to make money just by being oline and sharing content, this result it gets more obvious.

5 Top iPad Photo-Editing Apps | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Who says the iPad wasn't meant for creation? Sure, you can't exactly run Final Cut Pro or Adobe InDesign on Apple's tablet (nor would you really want to), but the device has come a long way since 2010. One category of apps that demonstrates the iPad's creative prowess is its growing selection of photo-editing software.

Excellent in-depth reporting by Tim Ferris on how to create an effective viral video book trailer.


Tim takes as deconstructing case his own The 4-Hour Chef (4HC) book trailer, which is now the most-viewed non-fiction book trailer of all time. Roughly 1.5 million views and counting.


Lots of images, resources, links, video clips and examples of what it took Tim to produce his book video trailer.


P.S.: Check out also this complementary post Behind the Scenes: How to Make a Movie Trailer for Your Product (or Book), which goes into equipment, planning, and (tons of) other useful stuff.

A Place To Be | Photographer: Marcus Reichmann

A Place To Be | Photographer: Marcus Reichmann | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Juli, Ivo, little Karla and baby Marla are a normal family. But they live in a place where statistics would never usually place them: four years ago, the family moved to the country and settled down on an old, dilapidated farm in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the eastern German state which is currently suffering the most from the departure of young, educated people. 

However, the family has not made a dogma of their alternative way of living. They are neither organic farmers nor hippies, yet their new surroundings have changed their lives in that things have been decelerated. Marcus Reichmann, a photography student from Hannover, accompanied them on their quest for personal happiness. The result is a portrait of a normal young family – or a family that is anything but normal.

The TB epidemic in Ukraine | Photojournalist: Maxim Dondyuk

The TB epidemic in Ukraine | Photojournalist: Maxim Dondyuk | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

My name is Maxim Dondyuk and I’m a 29 y.o. documentary photographer living in Ukraine. I used to be a photojournalist covering news events in Ukraine, but two years ago I quit and started in documentary photography.

In 1995, the World Health Organization declared the tuberculosis epidemic in Ukraine. Over the past 16 years the situation has greatly worsened. Each day TB takes lives of 30 people, annually - about 10 thousand.

 

In December 2010, I went to Donbass region in Ukraine. I was greatly influenced by what I saw on the first day. One of the first patients I had photographed was suffering from gastrointestinal tuberculosis. He was lying naked on a hospital bed and staring at the ceiling. A week later I was with him in the last hours of his life. He could not move or talk, his body was like a skeleton covered with skin. He clutched a cross to his chest and prayed. Afterwards I met his wife and she told me how he had walked around the house with a torn stomach and intestines dragging across the floor, because the ambulance had refused to transfer him to the hospital. They had to call for a taxi. After a while I realized that this happens all over the country and that the epidemic of tuberculosis has become one of the national problems.

 

A lot of prisons amnesty the convicts in serious health conditions so as not to spoil their mortality figures. Two-thirds of former prisoners are dissolved in the country without being kept under medical supervision. Hospitals are in a terrible state and all phthisiology keeps on doctors who are long overdue to retire. Patients with drug-resistant TB have to use public transport to receive medical supplies and food and those without money just die in their beds. In the midst of current political wars in Ukraine everybody is just indifferent to the problem of tuberculosis.

 

For me it is very important to communicate truthfully what I have witnessed. And for that I must experience the problem myself, because my goal is to convince the viewer and to convince others you must first convince yourself. I live in hospitals with other patients, sometimes I stay in patients’ homes. I realized recently that taking pictures is not enough; I began to use a dictaphone to record their stories and made videos for a future multimedia. Everyone I tell about is close to me. I’ve known each of them for several months, lived a part of my life with them and buried some of them.

I will plan to continue shooting project of the TB epidemic in other countries of the former Soviet Union. - Maxim Dondyuk

Pelillistäminen ja työ: Voiko ihminen muuttua?

Pelillistäminen ja työ: Voiko ihminen muuttua? | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Pelillistäminen (gamification) tarkoittaapelien mekaniikan soveltamista eri ympäristöihin, kuten työelämään, opiskeluun tai verkkopalveluihin. Työelämässä pelillistämisen avulla voidaan mm. lisätä työntekijöiden motivaatiota, kannustaa heitä yhteistyöhön ja vauhdittaa innovaatioita. Mihin tämä perustuu?


Via Ilkka Olander
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

Artikkelissa esitetään esimerkki työyhteisön projektien pelillistämisestä, jossa jokainen saisi tykkäyksiä (kunniaa, kiitosta, mahdollisesti myöhemmin jopa joitakin roposia) siitä, että on auttanut projektissa ja jakanut tietoa. Tämä olisi tervetullut tapa jakaa tunnustusta kaikille projektiin tavalla tai toisella osallistuneille.

 

Samassa yhteydessä tekee mieli muistuttaa työyhteisöjen monimutkaisista ryhmädynamiikoista: kaikkea ei aina huomata tai haluta peukuttaa, vaikka syytä olisi. Erilaiset suhteet vaikuttavat siihen, mitä ja ketä lopulta peukutetaan ja mitä ja ketä ei. Miten siis varmistaa creditit sinne, minne ne kuuluvat?

A lot of people can't wrap their heads around the idea that your social media job is a real job.

The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.
