This timelapse video is a collection of footage shot over the last year and a half around the western half of the United States. The shots ranged from very different locations. From Montana to Arizona and most weren’t easy to get to but of course that makes them worth going to. The locations captured ranged in temps of 100 degrees to -9 degrees and in elevations of 12,000 feet to 225 feet below sea level. It took over 15,000 captured still images to make this video.
For those not lucky enough to have seen every corner of the globe first-hand, National Geographic Magazine has been our window to the world through its incredible photographs covering every locale from Timbuktu to Tuvalu. And now many of the greatest photos from over a century of reporting have been reproduced in the form ofNational Geographic: Around The World In 125 Years ($500). This three-volume, nearly-1,500 page photographic anthology contains photos ranging from their earliest work in black-and-white autochrome to their most recent digital photography, spanning each continent. Each photo creates a portrait of life, culture, wildlife, and scenery documenting every facet of our planet, in a way only National Geographic photographers can.
In Our Veins is San Franciso-based photographer Justin Kaneps’ series exploring the interdependency between the American coal industry and its surrounding Appalachian communities. Focusing on the socioeconomic impact the industry has on these mining communities, Kaneps provides a thorough look at a rural environment and its people in transition, while addressing that while coal production is problematic, it’s also a “longstanding staple in Appalachian culture and economy.”

An exhibition exploring the theme of masculinity opened in November at the recently inaugurated gallery Capricious 88 on New York City’s Lower East Side. The show, which continues through the beginning of February, features the work of both established and emerging photographers, including Peter Croteau, Anne Hall, Nicolai Howalt, Collin LaFleche, Anders Petersen and Susan Surface.
The exhibited works are selected from issue 14 of Capricious, the biannual fine-art photography magazine founded in 2004 by Swedish photographer Sophie Mörner. Among the images that investigate “a range of masculine esthetics and ethos” is Howalt’s “Car Crash Studies Untitled Exterior #6,” which shows the dents and chipped paint of a wrecked car in close-up detail; a black-and-white photograph by Petersen of a pair of nude men on a bed, one of them wrestling with a dog; and an image by Hall of a phallic stone edifice set against a gray, cloudy sky.
In keeping with the mission of Morner’s Capricious magazine, the gallery aims to “create new possibilities for those who not only push the boundaries of photography but also bring critical attention to social and political issues,” according to a statement announcing the gallery’s opening.
The exhibition runs through February 2, 2014.
New York ex-pat Shannon Jensen photographed the remains of Sudanese refugees’ worn and tattered shoes in A Long Walk. The series is a simple but profound indicator of the difficult journey where thousands fled extreme war and violence. Documenting the event, Jensen felt it was important to capture the struggle of these people in a compelling, empathetic way distinctive from the multitude of refugee imagery. It was when she came across a photo she had taken of a family holding their crumbling shoes that inspiration struck. For Jensen, chronicling these shoes became a universal, relatable symbol of the harrowing pilgrimage made across the Sudan.
