A horrific outcome to a grim photo from Ukraine - Poynter

It shows not just the gruesome realities of war, but that Russia will stop at nothing in its attack of Ukraine.

AP journalists had video and photos outside the hospital after the attack. Chernov wrote, “It was among the most brutal moments so far in Russia’s now 19-day-old war in Ukraine. The woman was taken to another hospital, closer to the front line, where doctors tried to save her. Realizing she was losing her baby, medics said, she had cried out to them, ‘Kill me now!’”

A Conversation with Rob Hornstra

Ordinarily, I would have simply introduced my conversation with Rob Hornstra with his history as a photographer, most notably his work with writer Arnold van Bruggen in the Caucasus: The Sochi Project. That work entailed a large number of highly successful self-published photobooks, all of them crowdfunded at a time when such an approach was only beginning to become more widely used. It ended up getting the pair being banned from Russia. There now is a new project, The Europeans, which follows similar ideas in a different setting.

This Project is a journey of 5 years covering 20000 km and 35 mining communities, showing the impact of a government that violates the rights of indigenous people in the name of profit. Photographed along the “corredor-minero” this project shows social, health and environmental consequences of living near these mines. And, due to corruption in the local governments, the indigenous communities receive no benefits from the mining profits and continue to live in poverty. Mining also plunders water in large quantities for extraction, creating arid fields and causing the death of livestock. Agriculture and farming, which were the main sources of survival, can no longer sustain these Andean communities.

In Elise Kirk’s series, Groundswell, we are invited to the landscape of the Midwestern United States—a location bound to the flux and flow of the Missouri River. Her photographs depict a force of nature and its changing relationship with the area’s inhabitants. Among other things, I was fascinated by this work because of its portrayal of mutual vulnerability. The river represents an ecosystem susceptible to damage. And while it acts as a provider to local communities and economies, it also threatens to destroy. Though Elise’s work is regionally specific, it speaks to broader themes relating to our connection to the environment and the importance of serving as its caretaker.
