National Geographic @natgeo: Photo by @stephenwilkes: As my week of traveling, trekking to locations, and shooting for days at a time winds down, I can’t help but feel grateful that my work brings me to such beautiful destinations. Looking back at the past few days at the #GrandCanyon, I am incredibly excited to get back to my studio and start putting together my next #DayToNight of this amazing location! Seen here is a lightning strike at the South Rim that I photographed as I made my way to the final spot from which I shot the next Day To Night, which will debut a few months from now in a very special issue of National Geographic. More details to come soon! #GrandCanyon #Lightning #NatGeo #Storm #Clouds #NationalParks

National Geographic @natgeo: Photo by @ciriljazbec / Nairobi is one of the most prominent cities in Africa, both politically and financially. Home to thousands of Kenyan businesses and major international companies and organisations, Nairobi is an established hub for business and culture. The placename “Nairobi” comes from the Maasai phrase Enkare Nairobi, which translates to “cool water”. The phrase is also the Maasai name of the Nairobi river, which in turn lent its name to the city. Photographed few minutes before the sunrise. @natgeo @ciriljazbec #Nairobi #Kenya #Africa #rising

National Geographic @natgeo: Photo by @GerdLudwig, published in National Geographic Magazine’s “The Nuclear Tourist.” In 1986 reactor #4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant blew up. The radioactive fallout spread over thousands of square kilometers, driving more than a quarter of a million people permanently from their homes. Trips to the Chernobyl exclusion zone were legalized by the Ukrainian government in 2011. Chernobyl has since become a disaster-tourism destination. The most riveting attraction for visitors is the ghost town of Pripyat: dolls are scattered in abandoned kindergartens, floors are rotting and paint is peeling from the walls. Three decades after the accident created chaos of apocalyptic magnitude, tourists and tour guides are creating a bewildering disturbance, posing dolls (and sometimes gas masks) in unsettling scenes. This photograph is part of my upcoming exhibition at Visa Pour l’Image in Perpignan, opening August 29. Photojournalists, and photo enthusiasts gather annually in southern France for the world’s premier international festival for photojournalism to view work from around the world in exhibitions across the city and dramatic evening open-air screenings. To see more and learn about the Chernobyl accident, my iPad app, “The Long Shadow of Chernobyl,” was recently updated for iOS8: http://ift.tt/1IwBDBn @thephotosociety @theimagereview @natgeocreative #Chernobyl #Pripyat #Ukraine #abandoned #doll #toy #nuclear #disaster #fallout #tourism #TheLongShadowofChernobyl #catastrophe #VisaPourlImage #Perpignan
