Thought-Provoking Photos of Peruvian Immigrants with their New ‘Families’ and Holding Photos of Relatives They Left Behind

For Frontiers, Chile-based photographer Raul Charlin documents some of the many Peruvian women who have emigrated to Chile to work as caregivers and domestic workers. He constructs two portraits of each woman; the first positions her in relation to her employer’s family, while the second finds her alone, accompanied by a snapshot of the relatives she has left in Peru. For these women, Charlin explains, caring for the children and elderly members from their employers’ families is a means of providing for their own.

"We wanted to do this celebration of the un-famous, and celebrate how everybody is interesting when they are interested in something,” Poehler said. “Sometimes this thing happens, where people think caring about something is lame. So we wanted to not be afraid of any earnestness."

hey so if you ever wanted to see a series of screencaps of /r9k/ users plotting and scheming and figuring out how to launch what would later be dubbed #gamergate in an attempt to justify a hate campaign against zoe quinn while also admitting that a lot of them think the post from zoe’s ex is mostly bullshit and that they just wanted an excuse to harass a woman they already hated

all on DAY ONE of this bullshit way back in august

well then here’s this

if you can read this and still think that gamergate is a legitimate consumer revolt movement then i don’t even know what to say to you

Greenland 2012: Chasing the Light by Zaria Forman

Artist Zaria Forman creates large-scale, realistic landscapes using only chalk pastels. 

"In August 2012, I led an Arctic expedition up the NW coast of Greenland. Called "Chasing the Light," it was the second expedition the mission of which was to create art inspired by this dramatic geography. The first, in 1869, was led by the American painter William Bradford. My mother, Rena Bass Forman, had conceived the idea for the voyage, but did not live to see it through. During the months of her illness her dedication to the expedition never wavered and I promised to carry out her final journey.

These drawings were inspired by this trip. Documenting climate change, the work addresses the concept of saying goodbye on scales both global and personal. In Greenland, I scattered my mother’s ashes amidst the melting ice.”  

Forman donates a percent of all sales to 350.org, a global climate movement.

Meet Harlem’s ‘Official’ Street Photographer

Khalik Allah, a 29-year-old filmmaker and photographer who documents the streets of Harlem at night, has been photographing the corner of 125th and Lexington since 2012; armed with little more than a manual camera and a few rolls of film.

Street photography can often be a daunting or awkward experience – especially when you’re trying to photograph people who might be skeptical of what you are doing and why. However, for this street artist, photography is an immersive experience where he has built hundreds of relationships with members of the community.

One of the methods Allah uses to gain access to the lives of so many people is to show them a book of his past photographs, a technique learned from one of his influencers, photographer Bruce Davidson.

Grand Central Terminals Pre-Restoration Ceiling Tile
Look carefully at the northwest corner for a small dark square. The spot was kept as a reminder of how dirty the ceiling was before the massive cleaning that took place here in the ’90s—the entire ceiling was covered in the same dark layer from commuters’ cigarette smoke.
