Awash with lush, rich imagery and poetic text, Rebecca Norris Webb’s book Night Calls, published by Radius Books, is a gorgeous homage to her 99-year old physician father and to Rush County, Indiana – the small, rural county where both were born and raise
An illuminating glimpse behind the scenes of the global arms business: the photographer, who was born in Russia in 1986 and grew up in Germany, reveals the complete opposite of killing fields. In his case, war is an oversized playground for adults. He found the motifs, between 2016 and 2020, at exclusive defence trade fairs in Europe, Asia, and North and South Africa.
Over the last five years, the Italian photographer (born 1985) spent periods of weeks and months in La Guajira, a Colombian peninsula that is home to the indigenous Wayúu people. Border struggles, a lack of water, poverty, coal mining in the middle of a desert, being a transit point for migrants and smugglers; all give rise to the toughest of living conditions.
The powerfully dramatic moments were taken at close range, along the three most important migration routes that pass over the Mediterranean Sea and connect Africa and the Middle East to Europe. From 2013 to 2020, the Spanish photojournalist (born 1985) accompanied people who were following these different routes, taking the life-threatening journey in the hope of a new and safer life.
The Italian photographer, Stefano Schirato, spent a full month documenting the excruciating, daily lives of workers in the east Indian mining district of Jharia. Constantly wary of sinking into one of the numerous, burning holes in the ground, he met people there who were as friendly as they were desperate: working day by day in poisonous fumes, they eke out an existence in inhumane conditions. With a Leica Q in his pack, Schirato draws an impressive sketch of a life dedicated to coal.

Imperial County is one of the newest and poorest counties in America. Despite this, the local inhabitants still believe in the American Dream. Lars Borges's pictures speak of the resilience of people – and of everlasting hope and the search for happiness.
In this second iteration of “Focus on South Africa” I wanted to include features on photography platforms, collectives, and teaching organizations in addition to artist profiles. In South Africa many photographers do not begin or advance their careers in
The Through the Lens Collective is a relatively new organization. The female-founded and managed group began in 2018 as what organizers describe as a “collaborative educational and developmental photographic space.” The collective works closely with all kinds of photographers, but focuses on individuals who have some experience with photography and are looking for the kind of direct feedback that will help them advance their practice. “A lot of the way we work,” says founder Michelle Loukidis “is very much one-on-one, in small classes.” The Collective’s focus on individualized attention, she says, “gives people an opportunity to really push their boundaries, experiment and work in as many ways possible.”
A new book brings together photographer Paul McDonough’s vibrant scenes of Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Portland, and New Orleans, as well as on the road, to offer an elegiac topography of the late 20th century.
