I photographed Masika several times between 2012-2016 and was amazed with her resiliency, bravery and compassion. She continually sacrificed her safety to help so many victims over the years: “Rebecca Masika Katsuva (26 May 1966 – 2 February 2016) was an activist and a survivor of sexual assault from the Democratic Republic of Congo. During the Second Congo War in 1999, attackers killed Katsuva's husband and sexually assaulted her and her daughters, then 13 and 14. Her daughters became pregnant as a result of the assaults, and Katsuva and her daughters were forced to leave their home after being disowned by her husband's relatives. In January 2009, former insurgents, newly integrated into the Congo military, raped Katsuva for the fourth time. The former insurgents said they attacked Katsuva because she had accused them of assaulting women. She adopted 18 children, born of mothers who were sexually assaulted. In 1999, Katsuva founded a centre d'ecoute, also known as a listening house, in her home in the DRC, located in an isolated and conflict-ridden area. She renamed her center the Association des Personnes Desherites Unies pour le Development (APDUD) in 2002. The center serves as a shelter for women to recover from violent acts and provides medical help, and consists of almost 50 houses for women to live in. In the past decade, she helped over 6,000 rape survivors.” -Wikipedia.

Another World | Photograph by Alexander Brown

“[Before] packing my things to go film the whales in Tonga, and before returning home to Europe after an epic three-year trip around the world; I had one last thing to do: hike Tongariro National Park in mid-winter,” writes Your Shot photographer Alexander Brown. “I wanted to camp under the stars, and photograph my tent with one of the volcanoes and Milky Way in the frame. It was cold, below 15 degrees that night. But my partner and I kept warm in this little tent we set up on the South Crater Lake.”

“Lovely! Nice mood and simplicity, but technically well executed.” — @natgeo photographer Charlie Hamilton James (@chamiltonjames) #YourShotPhotographer

Video by @BertieGregory. Extreme climber Alejo Sanchez descends down an enormous rock face deep in the heart of the unexplored Chiribiquete National Park, Colombia. When he reached the bottom of this cliff, he made a remarkable discovery. He found a massive panel of ancient paintings featuring jaguars, people and more. This area is home to many of these paintings, representing some of the earliest evidence of humans in the Amazon. I shot this whilst accompanying a team from Fundacion Herencia, an incredible group of people doing real 21st century exploration. It’s very humbling to know that there are still places on this planet we know almost nothing about. But despite it’s remoteness, it is still under threat.
We owe a huge thanks to Parks Colombia and the Colombian Ministry of Culture for their support. For more on this place, Stay tuned for @stevewinterphoto ‘s upcoming jaguar story for @natgeo Magazine. Also stayed tuned for our jaguar TV show for @natgeowild premiering in the US on December 10th. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures!
