This week we followed the ongoing flight of Afghans from their country. We spoke to some of the Afghan interpreters, auxiliaries and informal allies who had to contend with visas after the Taliban regained power. Meanwhile, Kiana Hayeri was photographing young Afghans when she asked what will become of the country’s generation after 9/11 for the New York Times Magazine. In her series Ongoing Sentence in the USA, Annie Grossinger spent years photographing people who have been released from prison in New York State and how reintegration into society has challenged them.
In the UK we looked back on over 50 years of Notting Hill Carnival and on Britain’s older vacationers on the English Riviera by David Hares. In Somaliland, Nichole Sobecki photographs young cheetahs in the wild and documents how they are illegally evicted from their homes. And for Fast Company, the researchers asked people in two cities in Colombia to photograph examples of justice and coexistence with revealing results. We look at the winners of the Women Photograph Scholarship, including Eli Farinago and Danielle Villasana. Gena Marvin reinvents Russian beauty and Pablo Piedra, a longtime military photographer, is now taking stunning photos of beetles. Logan White’s recital series of photos brought us back to ballet class, and New England-based photographer Philip Keith’s pictures of Martha’s Vineyard becoming a black oasis at this time of year made us desperate to jump into the ocean and enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
