Support "Emergency relief after Cyclone Haiyan" with PHOTOCIRCLE

Support "Emergency relief after Cyclone Haiyan" with PHOTOCIRCLE | Scoop Photography | Scoop.it
Support "Emergency relief after Cyclone Haiyan" by CARE by buying a photo on canvas, alu dibond, acrylic glass, etc. on Photocircle.
Julia B.'s insight:
Project Goals Drinking water, tents, blankets, food and medicines are the most important thing the affected people need now in order to survive. With 80 € we can provide one family with emergency aid for one month. With over 350 kilometres per hour and a diameter of 600 kilometres typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. No electricity. No food. No water. Houses and buildings leveled. Bodies scattered on the streets. Hospitals overrun with patients. Medical supplies running out. "I do not know what to do and where to go," says a young girl. "I try to somehow survive this day. But what will be tomorrow and the day after tomorrow? Nothing is like it is was before, everybody, everything is lost…." CARE is delivering food, water, shelter and other essentials to the survivors of typhoon Haiyan, which has torn a path across the Philippines. As many as 10,000 people are feared dead while 9.8 million people have suffered the impact of the storm. Drinking water, tents, blankets, food and medicines are the most important thing the affected people need now in order to survive. Also we want to help: With 80 € we can provide one family with emergency aid for one month.

Julia B.'s curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:59 AM

Share the Word is an art project led by photographer Spag and graffiti artist Seb Toussaint, set in different slums and low income neighbourhoods around the world. The first episode takes place in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Share The Word is the Outsiders Krew's first worldwide art project, mixing graffiti, photography and film, and using art to create bridges between cultures. The Krew chooses to work inside each neighbourhood for 3 to 5 weeks, and asks each household to give them one word that they want to express. Each word will then become the main feature of a spontaneously-painted mural by artist Seb Toussaint. Spag, as the Krew's photographer, works to illustrate the chosen words by capturing scenes of daily life and portraits of locals, telling the story of the neighbourhood through his art. The project also aims to get the local community involved by encouraging the children to paint and learn graffiti by giving art classes on the streets.

This video was shot by the Outsiders Krew in Kampung Bayur, a neighbourhood of East Jakarta, in Indonesia. In a little more than 3 weeks, 15 murals were painted with words chosen by the inhabitants. All the murals were painted in freestyle.

The words are: Assalamu'alaikum (peace be upon you), Bismillah (in the name of god), Banjir (flood), Kali Malang (name of a river), Merdeka (freedom), Horas (congratulations), Nabila (name of a child), Alif (name of a child), Kali Sunter (name of a river), Peace, Kampung Bayur (name of the neighbourhood), Pendopo (meeting place), Pulang Basamo (to come together), Makasih (thank you), Harmony.

Monsoon | Photojournalism: Steve McCurry

Monsoon | Photojournalism: Steve McCurry | Scoop Photography | Scoop.it

"I was eleven years old when I saw a photo essay on the monsoon in India in Life Magazine by Brian Brake, the New Zealand-born Magnum photographer.

His work established his reputation as a master color photoessayist. Twenty years later, I proposed a story to National Geographic to photograph the monsoon. The next year I joined Magnum Photos.

People have often asked me what it was like spending almost a year photographing the monsoon. I spent several months following the monsoon which affects half the people on the planet.

Weather is often my best ally as I try to capture the perfect mood for my pictures, but photographing the monsoon was an experience that taught me a lot about patience and humility.

 

Photographing in heavy rain is difficult because you have to constantly wipe the rain drops from the camera lens. That takes about a third of the time. Monsoon rain is accompanied by winds that try to wrestle away the umbrella that is wedged between my head and shoulders.

I spent four days, in a flooded city in Gujarat, India, wading around the streets in waist-deep water that was filled with bloated animal carcasses and other waste material. The fetid water enveloped me leaving a greasy film over my clothes and body. Every night when I returned to my flooded hotel, empty except for a nightwatchman, I bathed my shriveled feet in disinfectant.

 

Once I was almost sucked down into one of the holes in the street in Bombay into which water was rushing. It took every bit of my strength to keep from losing my balance. After that close call, I shuffled along, inch by inch, yard by yard, until I had to abandon my cautious instincts.

I had to see the monsoon as a predictable yearly event, and not the disaster it seemed to my western eyes. The farmers experience the monsoon as an almost religious experience as they watch their fields come back to life after being parched for half the year.

 

When I was in Porbundar, the historic birthplace of Gandhi, I came upon a dog. There he was, locked out of the house, standing on a tiny piece of concrete as the flood waters rose. His expression betrayed his emotions. You can tell by the picture that he realizes his predicament and hope his owner opens the door soon.

Actually, a moment after I took the picture, the door opened and he ran inside."- Steve Mccurry

Photo report's curator insight, December 13, 2012 1:24 PM

Around the middle of the road between two of Southern Ethiopia's larger towns - Arba Minch and Jinka, there is a signboard that reads "Welcome to Hamer." The sign marks a dusty road that continues for almost to 100 km, through African bush, towards the region of Turmi, the heart of the Hamer tribe.

The Hamers are one of the majority tribes in Ethiopia's ethnically diverse Omo Valley. They are proud and self-reliant, depending only on nature, their animals and their land for survival. Virtually everything about their world has a strong connection to the world of their ancestors, very little has been accepted from the outside. - Mitchell Kanashkevich

Ludruk | Photographer: Diego Verges

Ludruk | Photographer: Diego Verges | Scoop Photography | Scoop.it

Ludruk is a theatrical genres of East Java in Indonesia. It's a form of traditional performance presented by a troupe of actors on a stage, re-telling the life stories of everyday people and their struggles.

 

Most of the characters were performed by male actors who take the roles of women, but more recently, the sketches and farces feature mostly contemporary domestic stories, and have become commercial entertainment popular with urban and rural working-class audiences. 

 

Diego Verges has produced a comprehensive photo essay on the Ludruk and as well as environmental portraits and scenes of these performers. Ludruk is a must-see for my readers as it merges portraiture, documentary and travel-ethnography photography, and also visually documents an art for that could well vanish in the years to come.  udiences
