Le mois en images – Avril 2017

Ma sélection du mois

1- Samuel Bollendorff / Oeil Public

Have you seen Samuel Bollendorff's (@samuelbollendorff) project the "Forced March"? Exhibited at #visapourlimage in 2007, Bollendorff shows the effect #China's growth has had on the local population and #environment. Pictured is a photograph from the project. The caption: The #coal #mine in #Gujiao. The #mingongs, the worker – farmers coming from the poor region of China go down the mine for 150 Euros per month. Not even enough to build a real house around the "hole". Without any social protection, without security inside the mine, they are the most exposed to the risk. The #pollution of the factories is also a breathing disease factor. Xiu Yu Jun says: "before we were respected as miners, now we are the last on the social rank."

Images by @joelsartore | A critically endangered Sumatran orangutan named Suzie at the @GladysPorterZoo. (Swipe for more) Female Sumatran orangutans never leave the trees of the forest and males touch the ground very rarely. There are only nine populations of Sumatran orangutans left, and only seven of those have optimistic prospects of long-term viability. Despite legal protection in Indonesia, Sumatran orangutans are still taken from the wild to be kept as pets; they are often considered status symbols in households. Orangutans depend on high-quality forests to live in. Unfortunately, many orangutan populations are located in unprotected areas where humans have begun to develop palm oil plantations and other agricultural farmland. Palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on Earth and is used in 50% of all packaged products (including shampoo, lipstick, and ice cream), so the demand to continue developing these plantations is high. Deliberate fires set to clear land, as well as killing upon sight by developers, are a significant threats to orangutans. Taking young orangutans from the wild and exporting them into the pet trade is also devastating to the species. Since females give birth every eight or nine years to just one infant at a time, even a 1% decrease in female orangutans per year could put this species on a permanent path toward extinction.

The east of the #DemocraticRepublicoftheCongo has been wracked by #conflict for nearly two decades. #Rebel groups plague the region and have given rise to the world’s largest (and most expensive) United Nations (@unitednations) #peacekeeping operation. In April 2012, former members of the #CNDP rebel group, who had been incorporated into the national #army in ##2009, defected to form M23 – yet another armed group in the country’s restive east. Some two million people have been #displaced as a result of the conflict in recent years; the M23 rebellion alone has displaced around half a million. In 2013, #visapourlimage exhibited Phil Moore's reportage on this. Titled "Cycle of Violence – M23 in D.R. Congo." Pictured is an image from the photo essay. The caption: Thousands of Congolese fleeing the town of Sake, after heavy fighting between the army and M23 rebels.Sake (26 km west of Goma), November 22, 2012.

14- Jonas Bendiksen

For #EarthDay2017, we would like to share an image from Jonas Bendiksen's (@jonasbendiksen) photo essay "Bangladesh: On The Frontline of Climate Change." Flat as a frying pan and for the most part only five meters above sea level, #Bangladesh is among the nations most vulnerable to #climatechange. With the added challenges of poverty and one of the highest population densities in the world, it would be easy to think the fight against nature has already been lost. But the people of Bangladesh are fighting back with resilience and creativity. In this story Jonas Bendiksen looks at the effects of climate change on their #environment as the Bangladeshis push back against the rising tides. Pictured is an image from the project, which was exhibited at #visapourlimage in #2011. The caption: Bangladesh. Kurigram District. 2010. Men moving the community mosque that was threatened by river erosion. In this flood prone area, buildings are built to be able to be dismantled and moved in a single day.
