[ #BreakingBarriers ] The Eagle | Photograph by Audrey Jeane Edler (@audreyjeane)

#YourShotPhotographer Audrey Jeane Edler writes, ‘Damel is a young Kazakh girl learning to hunt with the eagle. Traditionally, this role was passed from father to son. Damel is one of a handful of girls now carrying on this tradition. She bonds with her eagle daily, learning the proper way to feed, handle, and care for the bird. In Northwestern Mongolia, the eagle is not just a pet, it’s part of their cultural tradition where they are trained to hunt foxes, wolves, and rabbits for the family.’
.
This photo is powerful in many ways. Audrey not only made a thoughtful portrait of a young woman and her eagle, in the caption she educates her audience about how important eagles are to Mongolian culture. Another layer of education comes when she informs us that usually sons carry on the tradition of caring for eagles but Damel is one very few girls carrying on the tradition.

“The women in our lives are the most immediate way we can celebrate Women’s History Month. The history in your own family can be traced back to the women choosing to give birth. #YourShotPhotographer Tatiana S. made this photograph of her daughter learning to cook from her mother. We wouldn’t be where we are without the women from past generations doing what they could in their power to pave more paths for the women that came after them. A grandmother teaching her granddaughter isn’t just making memories, it’s a grandmother ensuring her granddaughter will be able to always take care of herself.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

Photo and words by @mishkusk (Michaela Skovranova) | This playful juvenile humpback whale was breaching just a few metres away from us. It is one of the most incredible displays of playfulness and joy I have ever witnessed. Young calves are often seen breaching and displaying similar behaviours to their mums. They play and imitate their mothers while they learn how to navigate the ocean — this learning process is crucial for their survival.
On International Women’s Day, I am grateful to all the women in my life that have challenged me and lifted me up when needed. So much of my personal growth can be attributed to inspiring strong women - from completing treacherous challenges together to simply telling me to trust in my own process. I think that, throughout life, it is crucial that we keep on learning from each other and growing together.

The Future Boxing Club (@roc_future_boxing) is an after school program for the youth of Rochester and was designed to keep the children off the streets,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Jessica Plance. “I asked Ya-Ya, who is one of the only girls who boxes here to look at me like one of the guys had beat her in a fight. ‘The boys never beat me’, was how she responded.”

“Jessica not only illustrated the strength of this young woman through a single portrait, she demonstrated her expertise as a photojournalist by collecting personal quotes and backstory from her character. @natgeo Deputy Director of Photography Whitney Johnson writes, ‘I like the strength and directness of this portrait. I love that you have included the quote from Ya-Ya. It reinforces the quiet confidence that she exudes in the image.’” – @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

There are an estimated 60,000 nuns in Myanmar, and seeing their bright pink robes dotting the streets was one of my favorite sights in Yangon. Nunnerys are an important part of the community since they serve not only as centers for religious studies, but also as orphanages — offering food, shelter, education, and a refuge from the streets to vulnerable girls. | Myanmar 2018

March is international #WomanHistoryMonth.
Every now and then, I still find hard to believe the outstanding news my friend @maude_m_rivier woke me up to on the 23rd morning of this month.
That day, my grand'Ma Jacqueline and my twin sister Lisa were chosen by @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas), to be featured into a series of 31 photos celebrating womanhood throughout the world.
Very few words can quite discribe the pride we all three felt...and to be featured amongst such talented women photographers is a honor that i will cherish for a lifetime.
Thank you @natgeoyourshot @kemcnicholas for highlighting emerging photographers!

#YourShotPhotographer Chloé Serignac captured a timeless, tender moment between her twin sister and grandmother. This image resonated with me personally because my grandmother was my first best friend, and I was her namesake. Photography has the ability to freeze moments, and people, in time. I’m so thankful for the images that I have of my own grandmother because she taught me how to stand my ground, how to laugh until I cry and when I was a kid and had no idea how much I would love photography, she let me take her picture. Women’s History Month isn’t just about remembering and celebrating the women in our own lives, but we simply wouldn’t be who we are without them. That’s something worth celebrating.

No story has just one side / Malawi’s lush beauty and spectacular sunsets create a stark contrast — almost a dissonance — with the reality of the tough odds faced by its citizens.
.
Life expectancy is only 40 years old for the average Malawian. The infant mortality rate is one in 10. One in five of the giggling children you meet here will not make it to five years old.
.
People’s circumstances don’t define them, but they are a reality. You can choose to look away, but they don’t go away. It’s the balance and challenge of any human being on this earth — seeing the beauty and the pain at the same time. / Malawi 2018

Treasure hunting in The House on Abeledos Street. This #Found Object (#objettrouve ) itself creates a powerful or poetic narrative which can help explore aspects of society or history. It is evocative of #Marcel Duchamp's #readymade sculptures. His infamous '#Fountain' 1917, an upturned urinal, shocked the art world, raising questions about what art is and the role of the artist. Pioneers of objets trouvés, like Duchamp and #Picasso, had a huge impact on a variety of modern art movements, including #Surrealism, #Pop Art, and 1980s #BritArt, as well as new genres like #Performance Art, #Happenings, #Trash Art, "#Poubellisme", and #Commodity Sculpture.⠀

The Stories of Vacant Homes
.
.
Over the weekend, my family and I attended Light City in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. The first exhibit we observed was of a vacant home which through projection visually displayed the imagined stories of families that may have occupied it in the past, present, and possibly the future. I watched as this woman gazed intensely at the screen, taking in each depiction, knowing too well of the amount of vacant homes that adorn Black communities.

Many of the kids I chatted with in Malawi had beautiful English and were excited to talk about their classes in school. In the afternoon, I’d see them running along the beach or peeking over the edge of the wall waiting to say hello and I’d know school was out for the day.
.
It was a happy picture.... but the rest of the story is that only 18% of these bright little learners will get to go on to secondary education. Even if they do, mastering subjects can be difficult since the average pupil-teacher ratio is about 114:1.
.
Instead, children (especially orphans and vulnerable children) will often be forced into child labour. Sometimes it is to help provide for their family and sometimes because they have no family and are easily exploited. One third of all 10- 14-year-olds in Malawi are at work. / Malawi 2018

My second solo trip .. Salalah to run the khareef half marathon. Salalah is a verdant patch in the desert country in the khareef season. I was initially sceptical about solo travel in the conservative area, but had an amazing trip covering the fishing village Mirbat; the souks in Salalah selling frankincense; spectacular Mugsail where clouds, mountains and the beach come together; the beautiful Khor rori ruins overlooking a bay and the Al Baleed archeological site. #desidocinoman #beautyhasanaddress#travel #travelgram #traveler #traveling #summer #instatravel #holiday #vacation #tourist #traveldiaries #travelgram #travelphotography #jetsetgo #instatravel #instapassport #passionpassport #mytinyatlas #wanderlust #desidocinoman #natgeowomen#salalah #khareefseason #khareefhalfmarathon #mugsail #khorrori #frankincenseoil #souks

Poise + grace / Portraits are sensitive. You always want to ensure the person on the other side of your lens feels respected, valued, and in control of their own image. It can be tough since sometimes that means knowing when to lower your camera and let a moment slip away. But people > pictures, every time.
.
A few general rules of thumb to think about: Would I appreciate one of my own family members being portrayed this way? Will this image make the subject proud? Do I have time to have a conversation, ask their name, and learn their story?
.
Some of the photographers I respect who talk about this and implement it with grace include: @estherhavens, @tanya.martineau, @holler4adventure + @katieraebodephoto — check them out.

Unintended consequences / For years, aid organizations as well as the Malawi government have given away free mosquito nets to help prevent malaria, which continues to pose a major public health problem — especially to pregnant women and children under five. In many cases though, these women are in even more desperate need of income. What no one quite saw coming was that many of them would then sell the nets to fisherman for a small profit.
.
Of course, mosquito netting has much smaller holes than traditional fish nets. That means it will catch pretty much everything — including fish that are far too small to eat or sell. Despite attempts at government enforcement, this type of illegal fishing gear has played an outsized role in devastating Lake Malawi’s fish population.
.
@Rippleafrica is one organization that has been working on conservation and education efforts in the region, partnering with the local government to regulate net size and educate local fisherman. Check them out and consider partnering with their efforts. / Malawi 2018

66% of Malawi’s population of 17 million is under 25 years old and 53% is under 18. Nearly one fifth of those are orphans or vulnerable children (OVC).
.
To cope with this, about 20% of Malawian families take in OVCs to look after, according to @UNICEF, even though they often don’t have the resources to provide their own family with basic necessities. / Malawi 2018

Take a sneak peek of my ongoing documentary project “The House on Abeledos Street” featured in ISSUE 2 of @artistank_by_myartsphere Catalogue. The project has as a starting point my much loved grandmother’s house in northern Spain. It draws on my rich Hispanic heritage and aims to give a visual account of the past, present and uncertain future of this small town. It is a reflection on presence and absence, a tribute to the faithful departed and their legacy, while questioning the continuation of this legacy for generations to come.

Kids are the best because even when you don’t speak the same language there’s no awkwardness. You can communicate in this special language that’s half giggles and half charades and if you’re willing to get in the dirt and take their photos, pretty soon you’ll be best friends. / Malawi 2018

Fishing bait / Many Malawians living on the shores of Lake Malawi depend on fishing as their livelihood and a main source of food for their families — the guys we went fishing with had been living off the lake ever since they could remember.
.
But in recent decades, overfishing + using illegal fishing gear has put that in jeopardy. Up-to-date stats are hard to find but the fish population in Lake Malawi declined by roughly 93% between 1990-2010. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization said in its country profile for Malawi that “the [fishing] sector has a significant impact on food and nutrition security, especially in the lake districts.” Meat can be hard to come by, so fish has long served as a vital source of nutrients and protein.
.
Since leaving Malawi, I’ve talked more about the issue with some friends who are local there. One organization they pointed to that is working on education and conservation efforts in the region is @Rippleafrica. Check it out: https://www.rippleafrica.org/environment-projects-in-malawi-africa/fish-conservation-lake-malawi-africa / Malawi 2018

Childhood seems to be a fiction now. Lost are the days, playing in the sun, giggling and chasing butterflies.
A girl is neither safe inside the womb nor outside it. She might have been one of them.

It's no more a women's issue. It's about men who stopped behaving like human beings.
Rest in peace. 💌

Sometimes we get the urge to go off the beaten path. Honestly, most of the time. Actually, I don't remember the last time we've seen a beaten path 😜

We will be off grid for about a week as we cruise through the Bolivian salt flats and then down through the lagunas route!

We've been enjoying the comfortable weather. Soon though we'll be in the salt flats of Uyuni (hopefully tomorrow) and we hear it gets frigid at night. Hoping for restful nights ahead of us! 🤞

Another awesome shot from Steph! ・・・
#OnAssignment, #PWBIndia: Arranged marriages are still very much tradition in the remote villages of the Thar Desert. Once women marry, they wear brightly colored durgas which cover their hair and face. When visiting with these women, they were kind and comfortable enough to remove the veils while chatting. However, once men came into view, they immediately covered up. Although this is still a very accepted part of their culture, many of these women wanted much more for their daughters. They want their girls to acquire a good education, which many of them were not afforded the opportunity of when they were growing up. They want them to have good jobs, and careers, and to be able to support themselves before they marry.
To see how @oneprosper is helping these women and their daughters to fulfill their dreams, check out the next issue of @photographerswithoutborders - coming in April. .

Behind the Veil

I got back to land some hours after I made the picture of the guy who lost focus and fell off his boat. I decided to spend some time at shore just observing the simple life of the local dwellers.

It was around 5:00 p.m when I observed a group of girls playing and swimming in the river not too far from the bank. As any conscious girl would, they had some form of covering whilst in the water. They played so hard and did not care who was watching until an elderly man came around to tell them to leave because speed boats were arriving at the bank of the river in quick succession and that could have resulted in a fatal accident. In obedience to the prompting of the wise man, they stopped and came out of the river. It was at this point I discovered something special.
Behind the veil there is beauty, a desire for adventure, a child, a distinct personalty, a smile, a desire to be heard, an expectation to be treated with love and respect, a hope for a better future.

I have since learnt not to judge a book by it's cover but to take time to know people a bit more and love them inspite of their differences/uniqueness.

He's 11 now and I'm already seeing the subtle changes. The way he laughs to himself, new vocabulary, speaking in text language (LOL) and he doesn't even have a cell phone, the way he carefully spends HIS money, and can we talk about the features of his face!

It's amazing how #transformation happens. One day he is a 3 lb 5.4 oz baby and now he is a young man growing into himself. There are tears for this moment but I haven't released them yet.

It’s #throwbackthursday! You will never go thirsty for hot tea in Mongolia! 🙊🍵 . I spent 2 weeks of last summer living with the gentlest and most generous of hosts in Inner Mongolia and boy, when I looked back at my photos, it’s either 🍵 or 🦅 . Sharing tea and listening to their stories, it’s a beautiful way to learn and grow ✨

Photo by @clarefieseler. A flap-necked chameleon (Chamaeleo dilepis) very slowly walks through a sorghum field just outside the borders of Hwange National Park, one of Africa’s most famous and most visited national parks. We almost tripped over him! #Zimbabwe #natgeowomen
