So , vous vous rappelez de ce #thread #cultureBite @bite_culture de la semaine passé sur le #carrapide ? On avait fait le 1er tour du sujet avec son identité et son histoire au #Senegal
Dans cette 2eme partie ; nous allons nous amuser un peu à étaler ses influence culturelles.
En mai 2017 le @Musee_Homme de Paris réalise une série de court documentaire (dispo sur @YouTube) sur la symbolique du car rapide qui se termine par la révélation d’un replica du #carrapide au Musée à Paris. Vous comprenez ? ce “cercueil roulant” est symbolique 😊
Sir Instagram, il n’est pas inhabituel de voir que le hashtag #carrapide réunit un bon nombre de photographie. En effet, les photos de #car rapide dans les rues de dakar ont leur place sur @instagram et comptabilisé plus de 2,1k de mention ; c’est bon non ?

URBAN EXPLORING THREAD/ABANDONED BATMAN DISCO : Pattaya City, Thailand

Nobody is really sure what the true story behind Pattaya's old abandoned Batman disco is. That being said, it is still an AWESOME place to go exploring. A few years ago a street artist meetup was held.
2/16
Street artists from around Asia held a gathering called "Meeting Of Styles" and they used the Batman disco as their canvas. Each artist selecting a different portion of the building.
3/16
Walking around the outside of the GIANT structure, there are several entrances to choose from. Some lead into the inner sanctum of the disco and others lead to drop offs to nowhere that I can only assume end in the basement.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

Fair disclosure: In the 90s I was a "welcomer" for #HongKong students at my uni. Overtly we were 🇨🇦 peer mentors. Really we were defending 🇭🇰 students whom the #Chinese & #Communists clubs targeted for #psychological #Terrorism with #Tiananmen gutter-burger pics & rape threats.
As always, I do my best to withhold my politics while teaching - you can construct your own narrative by critical thinking or you wouldn't bother to engage & educate yourselves about espionage - its methods & manifestations; its history & historiography; its fact & fantasies. Yet

When it comes to inclusion, there are too many in the #photography world who still want people like me to sit at the back of the bus.
Fellow photographers, collectives, curators, editors, brands + publishers don't have visions + plans that include people like me.
But Shaun, I hear you cry, it's never been so good.

Truth? Relativity is an anaesthetic that doesn't numb the reality of real world experiences. Good, better, best. We still have many rivers to cross.

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

1 A photographic look at Pence @VP visit to 2 TX detention centers w 7 #GOP senators. A thread about photo access and visual framing in an age of hate and hysteria. The entourage facing US handiwork without game faces. (screenshot: @Reuters)
2 Let's be mindful of goal: to counteract shocking pix from last 2 urgent @DHSOIG (random) inspection visual reports, the @HispanicCaucus pix from Clint, & #BorderPatrol FB scandal. Paradoxically, aim is to show previous scenes inaccurate, yet still "tough stuff" (& blame Dems).
3 One of goals of @VP trip was to insulate/defend #BorderPatrol from reports about its almost 10k member private racially/sexually toxic FB group. Did address this in context of border visit day before in San Diego in response to q's. Via @joshdawsey @washingtonpost pool report.

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

The medieval formation & modern history of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, & Lithuania) is a very intricate, difficult topic.
Sadly, key artefacts were deliberately blown up (Boris Stones) stolen (Euphrasia’s Cross) or erased (by propaganda or genocide)

after the 1939 Soviet-Nazi pact such that the 1 artefact unifying the area in #medieval times - the COG ship used by Catholic Crusaders then adopted by Orthodox colonizers & Slavic tribes along the Neman, Daugava, Emmajõgi, Velikaya, & Volkhov Rivers - is terribly rare.

Yet of the COG remains its MOSS - polytrichum commune - flourishing all over the region.

I'm so grateful that Charles #Darwin lived in an era of #photography so that we can see:

1. Charles on his beloved horse, Tommy.
2. Charles Darwin (age 33) and his eldest son William Erasmus Darwin, 1842.
This is the only known daguerreotype of Darwin, and was taken 3 yrs after the technique was invented.
3. An albumen print that sold in the Literary and Scientific Portrait Club of which Darwin wrote to Hooker: “for Heaven-sake oblige me & burn that now hanging up in your room. It makes me look atrociously wicked.”

The 4th freelancer in our #WPFD18 series is Ukrainian photographer Alena Grom. Born in Donetsk, a city controlled by pro-Russian separatists since 2014, Alena fled with her family to live in Kyiv. Her work focuses on children living in conflict zones and refugees in her country
Alena took this photo last spring in Marinka, a badly damaged city on the front-line of the armed conflict in Donbass. “The girl's name is Nastya,” the freelancer said. “She lives with her family, including her little sister, near military positions." [1/4]
“Their whole home is littered with fragments from bombings. While I was shooting, I could hear automatic fire and explosions behind their garden. I was shocked: neither the children nor the parents reacted to the shelling." [2/4]
