‘Although Ohio is at the vanguard of drug-prevention policy, the state’s efforts appear to have their limits. Statistics show heroin is winning. Nearly ten years ago I began making very personal pictures of family life in the region. Before I left Ohio in 2009, the impact of opiate addiction was just beginning to be felt there. Overdoses were on the rise. Elementary school kids were showing up at school with used needles in their backpacks.’Photographer Matt Eich has witnessed firsthand th...

A Day of Action Against HungerKenya’s ancient pastoralist culture is going through dramatic changes. The Masaai of the Mara region find themselves facing hard choices between land for cattle or land for conservation. The Samburu, the Rendille, the Borana and other tribes of the government neglected North find themselves grappling with the devastation of the worst drought in 100 years and conflict over cattle and the shrinking land on which to graze them.

New York City, NY | June 18, 2015 Avenue of the Americas Walkscape. More work can be found on my Instagram account dedicated to these images @conceptual_ben In a nutshell this project is best described with the following statement. We live in a time of radical documentation: Cameras are within easy reach and CCTVs record our every move. Our landscape and street corners are painstakingly documented. Time and space are mere elements to be observed, recorded and stored away. My response has b...

Photographer Sebastiano Tomada’s look at the Aleppo Civil Defense earned an honorable mention in Catchlight’s 6th annual Activist Awards in April. Catchlight asked Sebastiano to write about his experience covering these volunteers:[Barrel bombs are] inaccurate devices can wipe out entire buildings and are often dropped in quick succession, presumably with the aim of targeting the men attempting to rescue victims of the first explosion.

Twenty years ago, following the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, a group of insurgent farmers seized several towns in Mexico’s Chiapas state. The Zapatistas, who named their movement after the Mexican revolutionary figure Emiliano Zapata, called for a new revolution in the country. Complete political autonomy never came to fruition, but the group continues to exist as a collective of 35 self-governed communities. In January, Reportage photographer Giles Clarke visited th...

Seaside Heights, NJ | October 2012 The Jet Star roller coaster lies in the shallow waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New Jersey. Today is the 3 year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy slamming into the east coast. The hurricane - deadly and destructive - was the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. I remember prepping my house in Brooklyn, with batteries, canned food and water, making sure my kids were ok, and heading out into the storm with @ruddyroye @ramintalaie a...

United States of America | 2016 Can you tell who is a Republican? Who is a Democrat? You can’t. But they are all Americans. And we all need to remember that. This country has lots of different viewpoints. Lots of different ideas. Some are particularly evil. Some are destructive. But most are a product of the vast land we live in. With homogenous communities that are reluctant to embrace the unknown but value traditions. With diverse communities that embrace change but hope to cha...
