As the World Burns

With mass protests circling the globe in Spain, Haiti, Hong Kong, Iraq, the United States and Chile, AP photographer Hassan Ammar documented the outrage on Oct. 18 with a photo of a solitary demonstrator in Beirut, Lebanon, where people burned tires and rallied against proposed new taxes amid a severe economic crisis. The isolation of the man and his peaceful hand gesture in contrast with the remnants of a more confrontational manifestation make a striking statement about our streets of discontent.

Patrick Farrell, the curator of The Sunday Still, is the 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Breaking News Photography for The Miami Herald, where he worked from 1987 to 2019. He is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Journalism and Media Management at the University of Miami School of Communication.

Oil-Stained Lives

While shooting striking news images for a story about fisher families struggling in the environmental fallout of Venezuela’s collapsing oil industry, AP photographer Rodrigo Abd spotted an opportunity for a different way to tell the story. He returned to the oil-covered shores of Lake Maracaibo in Cabimas with a vintage box camera and tripod. In haunting black-and-white portraits, Abd depicts the human toll of the tidal bay’s industrial decay in the straight-on stares, premature wrinkles and blackened clothing of his individual subjects. By slowing time and removing the distraction of color, his images suggest another time, demonstrating that 83 years after Dorothea Lange shot “Migrant Mother,” the most vulnerable lives continue to suffer the most from man-made environmental disasters.
