Di Sturco traveled the length of the river in India, and, after winning the grant, completed the project by documenting the Ganges in Bangladesh and the Sundarbans delta. Here, he reflects on the experience:I first traveled north from where the Ganges...

Isla Guadalupe, Mexico | Nov 2015 I just missed it but I thought I would add this beauty to #sharkawarenessday This is a curious Great White that came in to inspect my cage. Or me. Too many people are terrified of these creatures, and too many are quick to kill them. But sharks are the ocean’s apex predator, without them the oceans would be out of balance and die. And we would follow close behind. #underwaterphotography #sharks #greatwhiteshark #documentary

He will be sorely missed. Our h...

New York City, NY | November 12, 2016 Notes. Posted in the Union Square subway station. There are the cliche “love trumps hate,” the “fuck trump,” the “love is everything,” and “stick together.” Then there are the truly meaningful. - like this center one in white and the responses around it. “I’m black. I wasn’t a safe long before Trump, why do you care now?” #election2016 #postitnotes #unionsquare #donaldtrump

‘I took this picture at a lion-breeding farm in South Africa. I got inside this enclosure with around 30 of these lion cubs. I thought it would make an interesting image to be in there with them. That was my mistake. Within a minute they surrounded me from all sides and herded me up a small rise in the middle of the enclosure. The manager of this lion farm had to come in and rescue me—not my proudest moment.Shooting on South Africa’s lion farms was a tough one; I always try to remain objective i...

In June 2012, Shannon Jensen was on the northern border of South Sudan as 30,000 people were fleeing the conflict in Blue Nile state. As a way of showing the plight of the refugees in a new way, she decided to focus on a telling detail - their shoes. Says Jensen: “The incredible array of worn-down, ill-fitting, and jerry-rigged shoes formed a silent testimony of the arduous nature of the trek, the persistence and ingenuity of their owners, and the diversity of these individuals thrown together b...
