Le mois en images – Mars 2017

Premier billet du genre pour quelque chose que je faisais il y a longtemps : Mettre de coté les images qui m’ont marquées dans le mois, et pas forcément dans l’actualité, justement, parce que je voudrais éviter polémique et politique. Je ne mets aucun commentaire ou contexte, pour laisser la force de l’image.

Fifteen years after the launch of Operation Enduring Freedom in the days following the 9/11 attacks, the war in #Afghanistan has mostly disappeared from front page news. Yet the war continues, and worse than ever. More #Afghan security forces were killed in #2015 than foreign forces in the entire war, and the #Taliban now control more territory than in 2001 when they were defeated. Since 2013, #Australian photographer Andrew Quilty (@andrewquilty), based in #Kabul, has provided much-needed coverage of the war, working across more than half the country’s 34 provinces, including #Kunduz, where he photographed the aftermath of the U.S. airstrike on the M.S.F. hospital that left 42 dead. This documentation by Quilty, titled 'Afghanistan: Enduring Freedom,' was exhibited at #visapourlimage2016. The caption: A baby girl who suffered burns from an oil heater at home. Boost Hospital, Lashkar Gah (capital of Helmand Province), Afghanistan. February, #2014. – Photo © Andrew Quilty / Agence VU’ #visapourlimage #911 #war #conflict #photojournalism #photojournalisme #reportage #photography #afg

(7/12) Photo @johnniecraw All the subjects I find in and around Queen Street, #Auckland City's main street. The meetings are all spontaneous. The majority I take to a darkish seedy lane half a block from the main street where I photograph them against the same age patterned wall. I never add any light, just use the very top heavy available down light, which accentuates their gritty character. In some cases, I ask if they can strip down to the waist to expose their tattoos. After the shoot, I spend up to 30 minutes talking and getting background stories. Some have chequered pasts, some have spent time in prison, many have Gang backgrounds, all are vulnerable. Each has a story to tell, most people don't take the time to stop and talk these pour souls. Their story is equally as important as the photographs I capture. I'm compiling an ongoing series of photographs to highlight the problem in Auckland City, where numbers of homeless on the streets is doubling every 12 months. It's a tragedy. These images are from my iPhone 6. I shoot on the phone because it is less intrusive. I shoot only in Hipstamatic, and process using Snapseed. John Crawford @johnniecraw

Last year at #visapourlimage, Peter Bauza's (@peterbauza) photo essay 'Copacabana Palace, Brazil' was exhibited. Bauza's photo essay highlights the dark side of life in Brazil – this is the story of Jambalaya, an unfinished but occupied condo, a typical example of the life led by millions of people described as “Sem Teto” (without a roof). It is also known as Copacabana Palace, a mocking reference to the luxury hotel in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. Here is the life of some 300 families who have found a roof, but in grossly substandard housing. Pictured is an image from the report. The caption: Eduarda (12) lives in one of the five unfinished buildings of what should have been a middle-class condominium. The site where 300 families have found shelter is near Rio de Janeiro, but far from the public gaze. – Photo © Peter Bauza / Echo Photojournalism (@echophotojournalism) #visapourlimage2016 #visapourlimage #riodejaneiro #rio #Brazil #condo #semteto #copacabana #family #economiccrisis #urbanplanning #hotel #structure #internationalpress #press #housing #roadtorio #2016olympics #photojournalism #photography #photojournalisme

photo by @jenniferhayesig A harp seal pup seeks shelter from the wind as it waits for its mother to return to its ice nursery in Canada's Gulf of St Lawrence near Prince Edward Island. This image was taken during a moderate winter when limited sea ice had formed. This year, like many others is not normal, it is record setting warm. THIS WEEK thousands of pregnant female harp seals are struggling to find ice strong and suitable enough to birth their pups. There is very little ice in the gulf this season and what has formed is thin and too weak to sustain wind and waves. Pups born on bad ice drown when storms demolish their nursery. This lack of ice in the Gulf is becoming a turning point for this species as they struggle to reproduce in these waters. We are on standby to journey the harp seals and to document their struggle for ice, watch @natgeo for developing information. Image with @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #ocean #baby #climatechange #extreme #beauty #canada #harpseal. HEY #BUFFALO join us March 14 at Kleinhans Music Hall for National Geographic Live Coral Kingdoms and Empires of Ice, an evening of seamounts , sharks and life in the ice with harp seals. For #moreocean @daviddoubilet and @jenniferhayesig

  1. Chacune de ces photos ont quelque chose à dire et à faire ressentir.

    N’empêche que la 2e (et la 4e ensuite) véhiculent un message terrifiant vraiment puissant au point que je suis resté fixé dessus plusieurs secondes.
