Child Labor | Photographer: Steve McCurry | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"For the past three decades as I traveled the world on assignment I
have witnessed children working in fields, factories, ditches, tunnels, mines, and ship-breaking yards. The scope of the problem is vast. Hundreds of millions of children spend their  childhood working and do not have an opportunity to play, go to school, or live in a healthy environment." - Steve McCurry

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena

Car poolers | Photographer: Alejandro Cartagena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"Car poolers is a project that continues my visual research on how the suburbs impact the landscape, the city and its inhabitants. These workers going to work in this way speaks of the lack of urban planning in many cities around the world. I decided to pursue this project as it has many other social connotations such as working conditions, immigration, transportation issues, illegality, survival, routine, wealth and poverty.

I’ve been shooting car poolers for a year now and I still go back once or twice a month. I normally shoot from 7am to 9am when most people are going to work. I picked Monterrey’s highway 85 going southbound to one of the richest cities in Latin America, San Pedro.
I found a pedestrian overpass that looks over the cars coming out of a small tunnel. I stand there and “predict” which trucks might have people in the back and then jump to oversee that lane and wait for the truck to pass underneath and shoot." —Alejandro Cartagena

Alejandro Cartagena lives and works in Monterrey, Mexico. His projects employ landscape and portraiture as a means to examine social, urban and environmental issues. Cartagena’s work has been exhibited internationally and has been widely published in print media including Domus, Wallpaper, Le Monde, Newsweek, Stern, PDN and The New Yorker.

Midnight Blue | Photojournalist: Justin Jin

Midnight Blue | Photojournalist: Justin Jin | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
In an old brick warehouse in a Chinese boomtown, workers have thousands of jeans to scrub before dawn. The machines they use — to create the vintage look — send into the air lung-clogging blue dust.
Photo report's insight:

Working more than a decade as an independent photojournalist with leading magazines and newspapers, I specialise in reaching people in hidden, harsh or sensitive situations. Whether tackling themes such as authoritarianism in Russia, exploitation in China or illegal immigration in Europe, I aim to get inside the worlds of the people involved. Through my photography and writing, I want to challenge preconceptions, expose hypocrisy and condemn abuse as much as I celebrate strength and humanity. For the last four years I've been based in Moscow, doing reportage and corporate assignments in Russia, China and beyond. Previously I lived in Amsterdam, working in Western Europe. I speak Russian, Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese, English and Dutch. Some of my projects are commissioned, while others are self-initiated. I apply the same passion, persistence and discipline to both. I also show work in galleries and museums, including the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, which collected a body of my work. In my previous job I worked as a Reuters correspondent, covering China from Beijing and managing a financial reporting bureau in Shenzhen city. Before that, I was at Cambridge University, reading Philosophy and Political Sciences. I was born in Hong Kong in 1974.
