South Sudan is the world's youngest country, and it has witnessed immense change since gaining independence in 2011. The promise of peace has given way to civil war, and tribal rifts continue to run deep, permeating political affairs. Over two million people have been displaced according to the UN, and tens of thousands killed. Amid the tumult is the Mundari, a people who would rather get on with doing what they do best: looking after their cattle.
All Mundari works in that mission, kids before men so that work happen as a daily life without any order from the leader.
Tet\'s holiday is celebrated lunar new year of vietnamese people so before Tet\'s holiday people come to market to trade each other to prepare for a warmly event . One of biggest signification for new year is blossom tree in the house of each family.
In recent years Burkina Faso, one of the poorest and safest countries in Africa, has been the target of more than 300 attacks by terrorist groups linked to Dáesh.
Education in French and teachers have become the center of the attacks that has closed more than 1000 schools, has left 150,000 children without classes only in the last year, and has made abandon their work and seek refuge to 60% of the teachers.
Children are afraid. They don't go to school anymore. They fear an attack that kills them and they have started studying at home. Improvised chalkboards, regiments of children learning from each other (the older ones teach the younger ones)… great whirlpool of creative and culturally resilience.
“Education generates trust. Trust generates hope. Hope generates peace”.
Полярный Урал, не единственное место на Земле, но одно из тех, что готово в считанные часы погубить любого, кто покусится на его безмятежное одиночество и покой. Многие века назад, этот край стал пристанищем для кочевых ненцев, оленеводов Полярного Урала. И сложно понять, почему именно здесь, день за днём, из года в год, существование, более схожее с выживанием, называется таким тёплым и уютным словом ЖИЗНЬ.
The polar Urals is not the only place on the Earth but one of those that is ready in matter of clock ruin any who encroach on his serene civic participation and rest. A century ago this region became home to nomadic Nenets reindeer-breeders of Polar Ural. And it is difficult to understand why it is here, day after day, from year to year, existence, more similar to survival is called such a warm and cozy word LIFE.
My attempt is to explain about a magnificent culture that has a close relationship to
the Homo sapiens humankind, which exists from the pre historic Mid Stone Age and
covered from the world. Their unique ability of living in undestroyed and covered from the
world without tossing with the present world and the society bound to it, Bourgeois world
etc., up to now from the Mid Stone Age in between 10,000 – 15,000 B.C. We introduce him as
“Vedda”, the protector of the forest.
If we want to get the live experience and to research many factors of archeological
evidence of the evolution of the human kind, this Man has won a specific place by the
remaining living factors, which are recorded only in the written form. Among the specific
factors on study of the human body, the direct compatibility of the cranial joint of the Pre
historic man and the Vedda can be identified. Most of the Vedda people are belonged to the
“O” blood group while a few belonged to “A” blood group. Any other blood group cannot
be found among them.
The marriage takes place among only the tribe, which has promoted the birth for the
children with poor intelligence. However, with the usual life, health etc., indicate that they
have a very strong immune system and the ability of vulnerability to the diseases is low.
They never wear shoes, do not brush teeth and do not use western medicine. It seems that
there is no a harm for their life by this behavior.
The rituals, own language, adaptation to the environment, the bearable physical and
mental ability in ill conditions are obvious differences from our society. The present
situation they, who hunt, collect bee honey, take grams and roots as their food to survive,
face is a tragedy. A main reason for it is the loss of their traditional living lands owned for
thousands of years. Livelihood, medicine, rituals etc., embedded vast forests are no more
with them. For the distancing between elders and younger generation of Vedda has
occurred by the tourism, deforestation, civil wars, modernization, etc.
The saddest thing is the threat caused to their life by the economical background of
the society around them, the globalization and the political effects. Their impoverished life
with the impossibility of earning food has caused to increase the children and mothers
suffering from malnutrition. The deforestation in the country, the global warming, the
timber rackets, the creation of the reservoirs in the catchment areas to build hydroelectric
power plants cause no rain in time, disasters in agriculture have been affected to their life. It
is sad to mention here that the Government takes no any action to find solutions. We have to
accept the sorrowful truth that this Man will become extinct from this world soon and there
may remain artifacts like a memory, a book, a set of photographs etc.
I thoroughly believe that my role as a photographer is to find these information and
disintegration and summarizing of the subtle social information of them. I believe that living
with them more than three months in that bitter life after receiving a special permission
from the head of the tribe, Uruvarige Vannileththo, to enter to that task by taking pictures, is
a great opportunity that I received in my life.
"Mursi People" is a series of photos that were taken during my visit to Ethiopia and are part of the album "Ethiopian tribes expedition 2018".
The African tribe of Mursi people is isolated in Omo valley - South Ethiopia near the border with Sudan. They are one of the most fascinating tribes in Africa with their lives being a combination of brutal reality and amazing beauty. What was really appealing to me, as a photographer, was to capture and recreate the perplexing nature of their culture and way of life. Suffering from extreme drought in the past few years has made their life cruel and sometimes dangerous, but has not left a single mark on their traditions. Living among them gave the sense of extreme authenticity and in the same time felt like an illusion. Their faces filled my insatiable passion for capturing pure, untouched souls of a culture on the brink of extinction.
Far east. Steel foundries. Life here has a circular flow, in the morning the workers get up early, there are those who prepare meals for the others in turn. The shifts begin and the men are all busy demolishing old shipwrecks coming from all over the world, the metal is cut, worked, melted and again transformed. Only the metal here changes life, these men are not, they are always here, every day. Every day until the evening, until the siren sounds the arrival of sunset. A human chain made of fatigue, sweat and hard work. Many curious eyes and friendly smiles. Men to respect.

Daily wage laborers are working in the small villages of West Bengal, India where they are involved in manual coloring the raw yarns spun out jute fibers. This is a totally manual process that involves drying of natural jute fiber & finally the coloring of Indian Traditional colorful yarns used for weaving sarees using different colored yarns in different patterns (Indian drapes for women) at village handloom weaving units.
The series is about paddy grain drying process. This is how the woman dry grains in the yard of their house. They first make patterns by their broomstick and put these grains to be dried. And after drying by the sunlight. The arrange and cover them and put them one day. And at the evening they boil them and collect rice from them. Then the sell these rice in the marketplace and earn money. Thus they earn their livelihood.
В Индии традиционно не хоронят умерших, а сжигают — кремируют. Площадки для кремации обычно находятся рядом с крупными индуистскими храмами. Кремация — это не просто прощание с человеком — это важный религиозный обряд. Ведь если человек понимает, что смерть — это не только конец, но и начало новой жизни, то отношение к кремации немного меняется. Для индийцев это не только грустное, но и одновременно и светлое событие. Это часть жизни, а не её конец. Более того, для многих смерть тела означает всего лишь перенос акцента на дух, душу, которая не умирает, и в этом есть мощный позитивный момент.
Fisheries play an important role in the economy of India. India is one of the largest producers of fish, both marine and inland. The fisheries sector provides employment to over 11 million people engaged fully, partially or in subsidiary activities pertaining to the sector, with an equally impressive segment of the population engaged in ancillary activities.
Fisheries help in augmenting food supply, generating employment, raising nutritional level and earning foreign exchange. Fish forms an important part of the diet of many people living in the coastal areas of Kerala, West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Goa and Maharashtra.
A fishing community is a community that is substantially dependent on, or substantially engaged in, the harvest or processing of fishery resources to meet social and economic needs; the fishing vessel owners, operators, crew and fish processors that are based in such a community.
. Here I tried to capture the activities of fishing community near the eastern sea coast line of Sagar Island, Bakhali, Paradeep and Puri area.
The sun sets and returns to sunrise. This woman, with her young children, lives far from this world.
So many of them are in Omo Valley. These families are known for the strange customs and rituals practiced by the tribe to this day
Баба Рая. Когда-то она была счастлива со своей Страной. Пятьдесят пять лет служила сельчанам и Родине фельдшером-акушеркой на ФАПе. Её знали и в ней нуждались три села и само Государство. А сейчас их три человека на одной улице с далеко не всем понятным названием «Советская»… Сейчас это другая страна, с кашей в головах новых «слуг народа», с российским триколором, прибитым поверх советского флага и ужившимся с серпом и молотом. Это наспех замазанный «коммунизм» в сталинском лозунге о творчестве каких то масс, и это странный призыв не быть богатым в разваливающемся селе, которое они обязаны сохранить.
Investigate the experience of your own personal consciousness and you will see how nothing can ever truly be missing from the intimacy from your present moment. The sense of lack, from which all happiness grows, is entirely unreal. The present movement is already perfect and complete.
Capture these movement from a slum area and the satisfaction and the happiness on their faces is the best part of my story.
Эта история о бабушке Свете, которая печет просфоры для местного прихода в одной маленькой деревне Нижегородской области. Баба Света, кроме того, что стала петь в церковном хоре на службах, ещё и печет для храма. Основной ингредиент - молитва и святая вода. Знаю ее с пеленок, но к Богу она пришла совсем недавно. "Что привело, тёть Свет, к Богу?" - спрашиваю её на съемке. Отвечает: "Столько чудес сотворилось, когда трудно было, что нельзя не верить, вот и служу теперь во славу Божью".
I visited sugarcane sugar factory and there i saw people working there in very very hot environment.every where there is smoke and very high temperature.this environment was suitable of my style of working...i want to to keep everything so real and as it is so i decided to stay there and worked for my project at night when i cud get my style of images i like to capture shapes forms and contrast colors,..i think figure to ground relation is good in this images.. so i made one sires of entire process.
The image shown here is taken from a beach, and the people who are seen here are usually fishermen who live by the fish in the sea. In my photo, I try to showing the view of those who catch fish every morning when they return from the sea and come back and bring their fishing boat on the shelf over the sea.

Сюда приходят те, кто не может позволить себе индивидуальную роспись кузова. Чаще всего они выбирают пластиковые флажки и наклейки, но мастера готовы из самых простых материалов создать произведение искусства.
Rituals are in the centre of everything we do, this is the way we live and how the human generation will continue. It is our responsibility to pass on our culture and all the rituals to the next generation so that it can live for many more years to come. This was shot in a small town of Karnataka, Shravanabelagola, where thousands of devotees especially from Jain religion come every month to offer their prayers to Lord Bahubhali. At this time the priest was offering kumkma water (red) right onto the idol feet, a memorable moment. This image also reminds that even though devotees come and go, the ritual has to continue day in day out and the priest is the one who sacrifices and live his life serving the almighty.
The fire glows… Its sound is heard… The place is very noisy, the sound of the iron ringing in the ears. That iron, that hard iron, how it melts in the callous hands of a blacksmith. Sometimes like taking revenge and sometimes loving a kid. It cannot resist when it sees the fire. It takes its shape in time. It all starts with a spark and takes shape in time. Isn't this the same for us? One, two and three… Aren't we quite beaten with repeated blows and carved like a sharp knife in life? We go through a lot of situations until we get this sharpness. While our inside like a glow, outside like a spark. The time shapes human and iron well…
Проект съемок людей в деревнях и селах. Я бы хотела показать жизнь обычных людей, которые несмотря ни на что живут и радуются. Люди все чаще тянутся за популярностью, лидерами с титулом, роскоши, красивости, а не красоты, лейблами не чтобы дополнял, а чтобы кричал “я элита”.
..Я снимаю этих людей, слушая истории их жизни и у каждого она своя. Их объединяет надежда, вера и любовь. Знаете, что меня так влечет к старикам? Их БЕЗОЦЕНОЧНОЕ отношение ко мне. Они видят мою душу, а не внешность, одежду, машину, талант, мои дела, замужем ли я успешно или так себе, сколько у меня детей, какие у меня цели и правильные ли они. Нет! Просто я - безличностная. И это не потому что им все равно, а потому что они уже сами вышли за пределы личности и социума.
..Я могу быть просто собой. Это чувство не с чем не перепутаешь и как только меня заносит, я в него возвращаюсь и спрашиваю себя - для кого я сейчас хочу быть иной? Что я при этом чувствую? Что и кому я хочу доказать и показать и для чего?
Workdays of factory workers in China / Будни работников фабрик в Китае
During a trip to China, I visited many factories, from sewing caps to manufacturing titanium pipes, all factories combined working conditions, not to say that they are bad, it’s just not usual for a person who has lived all his life in Russia, despite the untidiness, workers look happy, the daily routine is clear, the vow is on schedule.
В ходе поездки по Китаю, я посетил множество фабрик, начиная с пошива кепок и до производства титановых труб, все фабрики объединяли условия труда, не сказать что они плохие, просто не привычно для человека прожившего всю жизнь в России, несмотря на внешнюю неопрятность, работники выглядят счастливыми, распорядок дня четкий, обет по расписанию.
