Mario Pires's curator insight, June 3, 2014 10:23 AM

"As I was photographing the tank, I had very clear memories of the Prague spring of 1968, when citizens faced off with Russian tanks. The atmosphere soon became chaotic in the hotel, as people were worried about getting their stories out in the unfolding tragedy. Authorities inside the hotel confiscated footage, but I packed my film into a box of tea and gave it to a French student who was heading back to Paris. She got it to Magnum."

"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

Portraits of Indonesia's Last Sea Nomads - Feature Shoot

Portraits of Indonesia's Last Sea Nomads - Feature Shoot | Visual Journalism | Scoop.it
 These beautiful photographs of the fishing practices of the Bajau Laut, who live in the Coral Triangle in Indonesia, belie a harsher reality. For over half a year in 2011, London-based photographer James Morgan photographed the Bajau Laut, a traditionally nomadic people who used to live almost their entire lives at sea. The Bajau fish for both income and food, with traditional practices involving the use of nets, lines, and handmade spear guns to catch fish. Unfortunately, the live fish trade, a global industry worth an estimated US $1 billion, has driven them to employ homemade fertilizer bombs and potassium cyanide to increase their catch.
