“Sunrise over the #BeringSea in #Alaska. @jimwilson125 recently traveled to the far western reaches of the state. His destination: St. Lawrence Island, which was once home to a 4,800-acre radar station called Northeast Cape. Roughly 600 military installations across Alaska were never fully cleaned up after World War II and the Cold War. As a result, health problems in communities nearby have lingered and festered. Today, several longtime residents on St. Lawrence Island are speaking up about the things they saw at Northeast Cape, which is one of the biggest and most polluted sites.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“The crew aboard a Thai fishing boat in the Gulf of #Thailand included two dozen Cambodian boys, some as young as 15. A labor shortage in the Thai #fishing industry has been primarily filled using #migrants, most of them from Cambodia and Myanmar. Men who have fled servitude on boats like this one talk of beatings and worse as nets are cast for catch that will become pet food and livestock feed. The photographer @adamjdean spent more than a day aboard this vessel. “We wanted to get as close as we could without disrupting their work, or putting ourselves or them in danger,” @adamjdean said of his time on boat with the @nytimes reporter Ian Urbina.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“The #carousel building at the south end of the boardwalk in Asbury Park, #NewJersey. #AsburyPark was a booming seaside resort in the late 1800s, with about 200 hotels and a carnival-like atmosphere on the boardwalk. But the city’s fortunes began a slow decline in the late 1960s — and only grew worse in 1970 after riots fueled by racial tensions broke out. Now, after decades of false starts, Asbury is finally showing signs of revival. This #nytweekender, we’re sharing a black-and-white series on the seaside town, shot by by @nytimes photographer Tony Cenicola.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“A mural by Ces on Drake Avenue in #HuntsPoint, a neighborhood in the Bronx. Next weekend, @nytimes is taking a walk with David Gonzalez (@104bx), co-editor of the #lensblog and an avid chronicler of #streetart. @104bx, who took this photo in 2012, will guide a small group through Hunts Point, which is home to walls that have become the canvases for a number of respected muralists. If you live in New York and would like to attend, take a photo of street art and tag it #NYTBronxWalk. Post your photo soon, because space is limited. #NYTBronxWalk” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Men gathered in a park in Richmond Hill, #Queens to watch songbirds facing off in a speed-singing contest. The birds are judged on the number of songs they sing, and the first to reach 50 wins. You might call it a battle of the birds. But there is just as much grandstanding by their male handlers. Many come from Guyana, with others from Trinidad, Suriname and Brazil, places where amateurs and professionals line grassy roadsides and town squares, vying for trophies, cash prizes and prestige at tournaments or impromptu matches. Brian Harkin photographed the competition on #nytassignment.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“New York City, NY | July 31, 2015

Back in the swing of the city.
Finding the crumb of motivation, of creativity, is a constant unending search for me. I am always looking for a speck of reason. Why am I shooting?

I often find myself shooting the single lone figure in the urban environment.
Some people have told me many of my images feel lonely. I’ve decided to embrace that for a bit. I’m going to start to concentrate on the alone.
The one among millions.

“The Austrian-born director Hubert Sauper with a makeshift plane he built himself. Hubert spent two and a half years flying his “tin-can” plane around #Sudan to film “We Come as Friends,” a documentary that details contemporary colonialism. The plane became a rapid means of exit when necessary — as well as made a potent metaphor for all-access Western influence. “We Come as Friends” comes to American theaters on Aug. 14.

While visiting #PEI — the #Canadian province famous for its beaches, rolling hills and sandstone cliffs — a @nytimestravel writer took several foraging trips. The small island boasts fresh oysters, clams, cod, lobster and mussels, as well as close to 1,500 mostly family-run farms that grow a variety of produce and crops.

“Inside an Orthodox Christian #church at a #refugee camp outside of #Calais, France. There are also at least four mosques in the camp, which is made up of makeshift shelters housing about 3,000 inhabitants and known as the “jungle.” For many migrants traveling Africa, the Middle East and beyond, #Calais, 21 miles from the white cliffs of Dover, is the last stop. Every night, people try to vault fences or cut their way through them and climb onto trains or into trucks going across the Channel to England. If they make it across, many believe they will have reached safety and a better life. @tom__jamieson photographed the camp on #nytassignment.” By nytimes on Instagram.
