Nailed It

In a shot felt ’round the world, AFP photographer Martin Bernetti captured a Chilean demonstrator on Sept. 8 as he perfectly lands his displeasure during a peaceful-turned-violent march in Santiago honoring victims of General Pinochet’s dictatorship. The 46-year-old military coup that brought Pinochet to power is still a political flashpoint.

A plea heard ’round the world

Like a visual SOS, veteran Miami Herald photographer Al Diaz’s photograph of Aliana Alexis raising her arms from the concrete remains of her Bahamian home on Sept. 5 became the iconic image of Hurricane Dorian, helping mobilize international response. Some coverage this past week did an excellent job of showing the expanse of devastation in “The Mudd” shantytown on Great Abaco Island, but it took a still image of Alexis in a house dress and blue Crocs, surrounded by smashed plywood and soggy mattresses, to send a clear message. Shared on social media and newspaper sites around the world, the power of the photograph stirred a global reaction. “Hold on tight mama,” one reader wrote on the Miami Herald Instagram feed. “Help is coming.”

Rolling Stones Miami: Mick Jagger says he was ‘stuck’ in front of TV watching Hurricane Dorian

"Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away"
VoilĂ , Mick Jagger wails 
and the storm fades away... from Miami at least.

We likely won’t see them again for a while, if ever again, but wowza, what a sendoff.
The Rolling Stones took over Hard Rock Stadium Friday night, a rescheduled stop due to Hurricane Dorian.
This was the second time the show, the final night of the North American leg of the No Filter Tour, was rescheduled, due to lead singer Mick Jagger’s health issues last spring.
About those.
At 76, the rocker looked as healthy as a horse, opening the show fittingly with “Jumping Jack Flash,” jumping all about the stage like a guy half his age. Actually, most guys half his age would be lucky to have his energy.
Looking uncannily fit, the music legend, who underwent heart valve surgery in April, spoke to the enthusiastic crowd.
“We finally put it together,” he said, to cheers, then apologized if the band “screwed up your weekend plans and whatever. Thank you for your understanding.”
Jagger then thanked the crew that scrambled together to set up...

Boys of Summer

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photographer Steph Chambers brings a fresh, artful eye to the annual rite of passage of high school football players training in the heat for a new season. Her package of photos – “High school football personifies Western Pennsylvania’s steel grit”– is a series of cleverly composed moments that trigger delight and nostalgia. It’s a reminder of what newspaper photographers can achieve when given time and creative freedom. Clickbait and gratuitous videos be damned. Give us still images that capture the human condition and make us linger on our screens.

Flipping into history 

How do you capture perfection as it twists, flips and dazzles through the stratosphere? It may not be the record-setting triple-double she landed on the floor on her way to win her sixth U.S. Gymnastics championship in Kansas City, Mo., last weekend, but Getty Images photographer Jamie Squire’s eye-catching image of Simone Biles in mid-flight above the balance beam is likely to be a photo that follows her into the history books. With the Stars and Stripes as the backdrop, the moment captures the height, power and clean execution of an athlete breaking barriers – and somersaulting her way into America’s hearts.
