    Cortona, Italy | July 19, 2014
    Wag the Dog

    I’ll be posting some images from my latest trip to Cortona over the next few days. I spent time with several different photographers who each inspired me indifferent ways.

    The World Eskimo-Indian Olympics were held last week in Fairbanks, Alaska, and Al Jazeera America reported on some of the 200 indigenous athletes in attendance:

    Ask WEIO athletes where they are from and the answer is always two parts. First is the name of a village far from the road system, usually on the coast or along an interior Alaska river. Chevak. Galena. Rampart. Deering. That is where family is, where subsistence hunting, fishing and gathering take place, where Native languages are spoken, where traditional games are practiced.

    Next comes where the athlete lives now. More often than not, it is one of Alaska’s larger cities, like Anchorage or Fairbanks. The urban/rural push-pull is a constant in Alaska. Culture and family draw people to the villages, but better jobs and education in the cities and, sometimes, social dysfunction and poverty in the villages, push people out.

    The games, which celebrate skills needed to live a rural life, are in flux.

    "Most of the time [Floyd Mayweather] acted like I wasn’t there, which is something I’ve come to expect and even relish when working on ‘day in the life’ features for my clients. But having Mayweather look me in the eye and acknowledge my presence was the real challenge." - Reportage photographer Benjamin Lowy, who recently spoke with Rangefinder Magazine about his portraits of boxer Floyd Mayweather.

    "In Nicaragua…when they have rehabilitation centers, they are mostly in the capital, so it’s very difficult for people living in the countryside to get attention." - Sebastian Liste, photographer, on Nicaragua’s legacy of landmines.

    Before Nicaragua ratified the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, in 1999, sixteen of its seventeen provinces were mine-affected, particularly rural communities and poorer areas. Just eleven years later, in 2010, Nicaragua was declared mine free, having cleared over 179,000 anti-personnel mines from its territory as well as half-a-million unexploded ordnance. There will no longer be new landmine victims in Nicaragua or in any other mine-free country, but this is of little help to survivors like Juan Lopez, above.

    Back in the 1980’s, during the civil war in Nicaragua, Lopez was an able-bodied combatant. Both parties to the conflict laid AP landmines, especially in the north along the Honduras border. After the war, Lopez began working as a freelance deminer for farmers hiring former combatants for land clearance. In 1997, Lopez was demining a coffee plantation and stepped on an anti-personnel mine, blowing off one foot. A year later, he was demining his own farmland, stepped on another mine, and lost his other foot. Photographer Sebastian Liste met Juan Lopez while covering the legacy of landmines in Nicaragua. Watch this video to hear Sebastian Liste tell the story of Juan Lopez and other landmine victims.

    In late 2013 and early 2014, five Reportage photographers undertook a group project, commissioned by the ICRC, to document landmines, cluster munitions, and unexploded remnants of war. For this project, Brent Stirton worked in Mozambique, Veronique de Viguerie in Bosnia, Marco Di Lauro in Iraq, Sebastian Liste in Nicaragua, and Paula Bronstein in Laos. Watch this space in the following week for videos about landmine clearance in these other countries.

    Syria’s Women of War

    These are the members of the only all-female fighting unit in the war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo, photographed by Reportage’s Sebastiano Tomada in March of this year. They said they had come together to augment the fighting power of the Free Syrian Army. “Women are fighting on all the fronts now,” a female activist told Sebastiano. “Women often transport weapons and supplies for rebels as they are less likely to be searched at army and security checkpoints.”

    This series was recently awarded first prize by the jury of PX3: Prix de la Photographie Paris, the exhibition for which was held last week. See more of Sebastiano’s work on the Reportage website.

    Madison Square Garden Walkscape | June 2014

    Another image from my Walkscape series.

    I’m currently in Cortona, Italy for the On the Move photo festival where I am part of the Goin’ Mobile group show featuring a brand new body of work.

    I call them Walkscapes. In a nutshell I am aiming to compress the over documented world we live in. Most of the images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.

    ‘A cluster munition is the size of a golf ball. It’s rusted, it blends in with the dead leaves. These boys are just playing around their villages, they find something like that, they pick it up. There has been no education about this whatsoever. The only way the boys in the village learned was after their friends were killed.’  - Paula Bronstein, Reportage by Getty Images photographer

    Unexploded munitions, the remnants of American cluster bombing in the 1960s, remain buried in the earth in Southeast Asia. As part of a large project undertaken by Reportage photographers for the ICRC, Paula Bronstein traveled to Laos to document how the bombs are still wreaking havoc on the local population. She discovered a lack of education about the dangers, and met the mothers of children who were killed by munitions.

    How Oakland’s public schools are fighting to save black boys

    by Trymaine Lee [Photos: Balazs Gardi for MSNBC]

     

    OAKLAND, CaliforniaThe bleak statistics for black boys here are like lyrics to a sad song that everyone’s tired of hearing but no one knows how to mute.

    Too many live in poverty. Almost a third will drop out or be pushed out of school. And in recent years, black boys have been about as likely to be shot to death as they are to graduate from high school college-ready.

    But there’s hope for boys in this beleaguered second-city by the bay: Many are beginning to stand up and fight for their futures. And they have a whole team of black men standing up and fighting with them.

    Four years ago, the Oakland Unified School District launched the office of African American Male Achievement (AAMA) – the first and only school district in the country with an office explicitly dedicated to lifting the prospects of black boys.

    'They move one meter by one meter, on their knees. They do this for 10 hours a day, every day, with incredible dedication and effort.' - Marco Di Lauro, Photographer, on clearing landmines in Iraq.

    In Iraq, as violence continues to flare, the legacy of old conflicts still remains in the form of buried landmines. The work of clearing the mines is painstaking and dangerous, but is of great importance in the protection of local civilians. Landmines stay active and continue to maim and kill long after wars have ended.

    See Di Lauro discuss his work documenting landmines in Iraq for ICRC.
