Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto | From the project FIRST JOB - One’s first job is rarely forgotten. It is the beginning of adulthood, a rite of passage and a turning point. For numerous workers, only 30 years ago, the first job was often the only one, as people could remained in the same company for a lifetime, just being gradually promoted or slightly changing ones positions with seniority. In today’s scenario all is temporary, as the dream of a life position has forever vanished. Usually the first job is the first of a long list that will follow. In the wake of the worst economic crises in modern history, where for many young adults there seemed to be actually no possibility for a first job at all, I explore the world of employment of today’s youth. This is a project that will be carried out in all the 5 continents where the global theme does not obscure, but actually heightens the local specificities. Each one of the subjects whose portrait has been taken has an individual story that feeds into a larger narrative on how the world we live in is changing. From China to France, from Brazil to the U.S. we get a personal introduction to tomorrow’s workforce /// China - Dendi Huo, 25 - Dendi was born and raised in Beijing. At the age of 16, she went to study for a year in the USA, with an exchange program. She loved being abroad and, a few months after her return to China, she decided to apply to an American university. She ended up studying business at Ohio State University. Two years ago, she graduated and came back to Beijing.More than business, her greatest passion is art, so she started to look for a job related to that field. Thanks to a friend, she got in touch with the “Three Shadows Gallery”, the most important photography gallery in the city. “They were looking for a person with international experience. I applied for the job and I got it. Now I work as a curator for the gallery”. She organizes events, shows and workshops and handles all the relationships with the artists. She works 5 days a week for 8-9 hours a day, and she gets RMB 7,000 (around USD 1,100) a month. #firstjob #job #work #china #art #exhibition

“Rains are heavier now, the forest is greener, the undergrowth is thicker and the predators are stealthier,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mainak Ray. “A late evening hide and seek with this beauty from the woods of southern India.”

“This is so awesome Mainak. I am glad you were using a 500mm lens, because at least you have the safety of distance between you and the tiger because I love the intensity of its stare, I feel it watching me. I love that it is partially hidden behind the vegetation, I feel myself being stalked. And then I wonder, are there other tigers in the forest that I can't see who are also tracking my movements...” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

My mood of the day from Dagestan, Russia (small republic where I was born). This is Khunzhakh region. While driving there I was imagining how probably long time ago the famous Dagestani poet Rasul Gamzatov was running here as a kid. I used his poem for the video from Dagestan in the previous post. Will tell you more about him in the next posts. Here we also met an amazing family of our talented photographer friend: @shamilgadzhidadaev.
Настроение дня: Дагестан, Хунзахский район. Проезжая тут на машине невольно начинаешь представлять, как наверное когда-то очень давно тут бегал ребёнком Расул Гамзатов. Аул Цада, где он родился в семье Гамзата Цадасы находится в этом районе. Тут, кстати познакомились с замечательной семьёй нашего друга фотографа: @shamilgadzhidadaev.


Can we broaden our view...even within a country?
We continue our #overtourism series this week by sharing some ways travelers can help combat this problem while also having better travel experiences themselves.
Tip #3: Visit secondary cities and regions. .
We understand the draw of wanting to visit popular destinations, marquee cities, and iconic regions. As you plan and move about, consider the less well-known or “secondary” cities and regions in or near the destination you have in mind. These may offer you a similar experience — and sometimes even a more genuine and local one — compared to the marquee destination, but with fewer crowds and often at a lower cost.
For example, Tuscany and the Val D'Orcia typically steal much of the limelight in the region — and for good reason, we admit. (We were married there nearly 18 years ago.) However, consider the Tuscan sub-region of Maremma. The area is less well known on the tourist trail (we learned of it thanks to a blogger living in Florence), but it features some incredibly beautiful hill towns like Pitigliano (pictured here). .
So which secondary city or region in a popular country are you curious about or have considered, but you haven’t yet taken the leap? What's keeping you? Let’s talk it out.
Bonus: if we've been there, we'll offer some ideas and advice.
