Roaming the night of Hong Kong. Mong Kok, Kowloon Peninsula
An outtake from my series “Hong Kong’s Revolution” for The New York Times Magazine.

Heat, dampness, slowness, hidden corners, a dim light, mystery, tea, steam. A coming and going, stealthy looks, men at work, rain, ochres and gold.
A door opens, closes. Love and breakups. Discontinuity, evasion. Loneliness to accept.
Roaming the night of Hong Kong.
Here an outtake from my series “Hong Kong Revolution” for The New York Times Magazine.

This week in print my portrait of Damien Hirst in exclusive for the New York Magazine.
It has been great to photograph and work with such an amazing artist.
One of the richest visual artists in history, Hirst revels in the magnetic effect money has, attracting or repulsing hearts and minds. Both his 2007 diamond-paved skull and his 2008 retrospective-cum-auction at Sotheby’s, which made $200 million, set Guinness World Records. But this year’s monstrously monumental Venice show, “Treasures From the Wreck of the Unbelievable,” makes those earlier works seem almost like appetizers. @damienhirst @nymag @instituteartist #portrait #venice #art #artist #portraitoftheday

An abandoned oil well in the thick of the Amazon rainforest near the Tiputini community, a village in the Yasuni nature reserve.
Yasuni’s ITT block is arguably the world’s most controversial oil drilling site as the wells will sit directly in what scientists believe is the most biodiverse place on Earth.
Critics feared that oil would destroy Yasuní in the same way it had led to widespread deforestation and pollution across much of Ecuador and the western Amazon. Not only could oil workings fatally contaminate water and soils, but new oil roads would be constructed deep into the forest allowing hunting, deforestation and colonization by people seeking land. @instituteartist #yasuninationalpark #ecuador #forest #savetheamazon

A woman of the Tiputini community, a village in the Yasuni nature reserve.
Yasuni’s ITT block is arguably the world’s most controversial oil drilling site as the wells will sit directly in what scientists believe is the most biodiverse place on Earth.
Located in eastern Ecuador, the Yasuni Park has more species per hectare of trees, shrubs, insects, birds, amphibians, and mammals than anywhere else in the world.
For the six million Ecuadorians that live with less than two dollars a day, the promise of development never came through, and neither will it ever, since oil is a resource destined to end soon. The oil rich regions are the poorest, with the highest crime rates and an incidence of cancer three times higher than the national average.

Rwanda. A picture of Muhoza, a Silverback Gorilla living in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park.
There are only about 880 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa.
A gorilla group is named after the Silverback leading the family. Each gorilla group has distinct and unique characteristic quiet different from another.
For a long time the image most people had of a gorilla encounter included chest pounding, roaring, and big, bared teeth. But researchers studying gorillas reveal a very different picture of mountain gorillas. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures.
Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still, they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching.

Rwanda. A gorilla mother with her infant. There are only about 880 mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa.
Shooting among this gorilla family has been an unforgettable moment of my life.
The most remarkable thing about gorillas is perhaps the most obvious: They are so much like us. My mind keep returning to the intensity of their gaze, the familiar details of their finger­nails and grasping hands. Gorillas share 98 percent of our DNA.

#Regram #RG @natgeotravel: photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Rwanda. A picture of Muhoza, a Silverback Gorilla living in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park.
There are only several hundred mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa.
Gorillas can climb trees but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback because of the swath of silver hair that adorns his otherwise dark fur. A gorilla group is named after the Silverback leading the family. Each gorilla group has distinct and unique characteristic quiet different from another. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures.

The Potala Palace. Buddhist monks and worshippers come to Lhasa from all over Tibet in order to pray at this major sacred site.
The Potala, winter palace of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, symbolizes Tibetan Buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of Tibet. The complex, comprising the White and Red Palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on Red Mountain in the center of Lhasa Valley, at an altitude of 3,700m.
