Photo by @davidalanharvey . There aren’t very many long net dory fishermen left on the outer banks , much less a young one. Yesterday afternoon Jake Griffin and crew backed the dory up to waters edge with pickup and trailer and power backwards to slide the dory into the sea at low tide and the quietest waters they can find. Yet even the calmest sea is tricky. A lot of right things must happen at once. You need an expert truck driver and boat captain totally coordinated. The combo of the dory sliding off the trailer one way and the wave action the other, has Jake’s crew mate doing a total flip over as the boat hits. I thought surely he must be injured, yet he popped right back up! Luckily it was a chuckle instead of an accident. Jake and crew are from Wanchese, an historic fishing town here. Good folks. Salt of the earth my dad used to say. #outerbanks#fishermen #fujigfx50s @magnumphotos

Photo by @stephenedwardferry | Toribio, Colombia | I photographed these policemen at the height of the war in Toribio, said to be the town which endured the most attacks by guerrilla forces of any in Colombia. When I asked this guy, with his Nike swoosh painted playfully on his helmet, how they felt after being shot at almost daily by FARC snipers, he simply replied, “resigned.” Now, because of the peace process, Toribio is much more calm. | Tomé esta fotografía de los policies durante la guerra en Toribio, el pueblo que padeció mas hostigamientos por la guerrilla de las FARC en todo Colombia.

A young staff member of F.A.C.E. (The Farm Animal Centre for Education) treats an injured horse in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Programs like these, provide desperately needed veterinary care to animals in resource poor areas. They aim to facilitate the improvement of the lives of donkey & horse-owning families and their animals. These people are from a marginalized and impoverished sector of South Africa’s population.

Photos by @melissafarlow | The beach was crowded with school students from Tillamook who came to explore the coast during a minus tide. The best news is that after a virus that decimated the population, Sea stars are healthy again! And there were capsules of squid and jellyfish remains. Great week to explore at the beach. @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative #beach #oregon #nature

I love Jossie Alonso's kitchen in Havana. It looks like someone made a cup of coffee in there in 1955 or so, and no one went in again for all these years. National Ballet dancer Yanlis Abreu Gonzalez leaps in wonderful fashion. #ThursdayThoughts#Travel #havana #Cuba #ballerinaproject_ #dancephotography #picoftheday #ballerina

“When I moved into Inclusion I had the feeling that something positive was happening with my life; that I might have a job or education, I discovered that I might have hope,” says Domagoj Tot, photographed here with his girlfriend Ana Molnar. Domagoj grew up in Croatian psychiatric institutions. He now lives in a house in with others living with mental health conditions and/or intellectual disability run by the not governmental organisation Inclusion.

In four years, 172 out of 200 people have moved from ‘Home for the Insane’ (now called Center For Providing Services In The Community) in Osijek, Croatia, into apartments. Staff have trained to serve as assistants in the community. For many beneficiaries it is the first time they’ve experienced true freedom. The facility in Osijek is the only one out of 26 in the country to implement the UN convention to deinstitutionalize.

Photo by @rezaphotography #Guatemala #Mirador Dieguez Olaverri. Los Cuchumatanes, Huehuetenango. // THE MIRADOR.
In the province of Huehuetenango, un Guatemala, up in the mountains, I reached the Mirador de la Cumbre located 12 kilometers upstream from Todos Santos Cuchumatán. This mirador perched at 3500m above sea level was also named Mirador Juan Diégez Olaverri, the poet who composed the ode A los Cuchumatanes. These verses are engraved on the pyramidal stones in the center of the Mirador.
There, while the sun was slowly warming the earth, and the souls, I met a small community of children living nearby.
LE MIRADOR
Dans la province de Huehuetenango, sur les hauteurs, au Guatemala, j'ai atteint le Mirador de la Cumbre situé à 12 kilomètres en amont de Todos Santos Cuchumatán. Ce mirador perché à 3500m d’altitude a également reçu le nom de Juan Diégez Olaverri, ce poète auteur de l’ode A los Cuchumatanes. Ces vers sont gravés sur les pierres pyramidales au centre du Mirador.
Là-haut, alors que les rayons du soleil réchauffaient lentement la terre et les âmes, j'ai rencontré un petit groupe d'enfants qui vivaient dans les environs.

I flew for dozens of hours over South Sudan, but only found one church like this. I tried to visit it, but the road was washed out and this was as close as I could get, with my motorized paraglider. #inspired To see more of our world from above follow @geosteinmetz

Farmers on their way to a manifestation get stuck on a muddy road, Caqueta, Colombia. Destined to cultivate Coca plants these farmers claim that if they had better roads and government subsidies they would stop cultivating the plant that produces Cocaine. Please follow the link, in my instagram bio, to the kickstarter campaign to print photo book Coca The lost war, a book that explores Coca as a sacred plant and Cocaine through the failed war on drugs.
