On the prairies of Manitoba, the Hutterites are outside. They are playing hockey, climbing hay bales, fishing, swimming, riding bikes, and connecting to their surroundings in ways that are increasingly uncommon with young people today in mainstream society. Though distractions such as smartphones, the internet, and video games can pose problems on colonies just as they do in the outside world, they are much less of an issue here. 📸 : Tim Smith ( @othertimsmith) . . .

#TheFENCE 8th edition series House of Cards 📸 : William Widmer ( @misterwidmer) . . . This project was commissioned by ProPublica as part of an investigative series that examined the condition of deteriorating public housing developments near St. Louis. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has neglected to address long-standing issues affecting vulnerable residents in communities who depend upon HUD for assistance. When public housing breaks down and people are forced to move, their social networks and support systems fracture and the fabric of these struggling communities erodes. . . .

To say life moves fast in a city is an understatement. People go through life in an uncompromising, chaotic pace, overcoming and absorbing anything in their path. Time in the city seems to flow quicker, memories in the city tend to fade away faster. Nothing seems to stand still in a city.

"A painting is not a picture of an experience; it is an experience." - Mark Rothko I deeply think we could all do with a bit more of Rothko's principles in our way of photographing; insisting on the primacy of raw emotion to push the boundaries of form and color to make photos appear as painting-like as possible. To test Mr. Rothko's quotation, I decided to fly above the inspiring Camargue park and the salt marshes of Aigues-Mortes, in Southern France. 📸: Magali Chesnel ( @magalichesnel) . . .

In this series, Meditations, Zilberberg( @alicezilberberg) creates animal montages as an expression of self-therapy. As a person living in the west, moving through a daily life that is sometimes fast-paced and emotionally complex, the artist finds calm in the presence of these wild animals. The animals are placed in serene and ethereal scenes to focus on the beauty of the natural environment. In a world where many are constantly looking to the past or the future, these works aim to have a meditative effect on the viewer, promoting staying still to find happiness in the present moment. . . .

Mountains are the water towers of the world. They provide freshwater to half the world’s population for irrigation, industry, domestic use, and hydropower. But mountains are also the most sensitive to climate change. Mountain communities have to be to first to do the work of adapting to and mitigating the impact of, the challenges directly connected to climate change.

#TheFENCE 8th edition series Paradise Lost 📸 : Adriana Loureiro (@estascalles) . . . Those who stay can only think about leaving. Those who leave can only dream of returning. Venezuela is currently going through a severe humanitarian crisis that has led to millions of citizens fleeing the country. The Venezuelan diaspora and refugee crisis is the largest that the South American continent has seen in modern history. Within that context, Venezuelans are constantly struggling with their sense of identity and belonging. What is home? Is it what you leave behind, what you carry in your backpack or what you carry within you? The Venezuelan people have a love-hate relationship with their country: they love the landscapes, warmth, and cultural heritage, yet they hate what it has become and all of the scars that have been left on each citizen. But the truth is that a longing to return is shared by those who leave, and it is hoped for by those who are left behind. There is a melancholy of being home but feeling completely alienated in a place that you no longer recognize because all of the indications that created a feeling of being at home have disappeared under the crushing weight of the collapse of the country. This is the place that I call home, and this my experience of our collapse. . . . You can see Paradise Lost now at The FENCE 8th Edition Brooklyn.

#TheFENCE 8th edition series LGBT in China 📸: Raul Ariano (@raulariano) . . . Due to Chinese families’ strict traditions, most people avoid coming out to their parents and relatives for fear of being an underdog. China’s one-child policy impacts parent’s dual desire to raise a child who meets all their expectations as well as what can sometimes be defined as an obsession; their desire to have grandchildren, placing pressure on LGBT children to conform to a heterosexual lifestyle in order to give birth. . . .

@United_photo’s #TheFENCE 8th edition series The Lowriders: From Detroit to L.A. and Back 📸: Erik Paul Howard (@erikpaulhoward) . . . The cars that serve as traditional lowriders were originally designed and built in Detroit. They were sent around the world and eventually inspired a number of automotive customization cultures, many of which worked their way back to the Motor City itself. In Los Angeles, late 1930's Pachuco culture popularized the low slung stance that came to be emblematic of lowriding as a social and stylistic statement. L.A. eventually innovated hydraulic suspensions in the 1950's, a qualifying modification of lowriders soon thereafter, with the ability to adjust the cars' ride height while still driving, in response to law enforcement's targeted crackdowns. Since then lowriding has traveled across time, cultures, communities, and geographies as it has developed its own unique characteristics in various locales on its round trip voyage back into the heart of Detroiters where the culture is integrated into the lives of riders and their families. - Erik Paul Howard . . .

The FENCE 8th edition series Midnight in the Garden 📸: Anna Beeke (@abeeke) . . . There is a garden in the city, an idyllic oasis set apart from the urban chaos by a wrought iron fence. If you pass it in the daytime, you might notice how nicely it has been curated and cared for it, how pretty it is, how much like paradise. But if you walk by at night and if you stop to peer through the bars and into the shadows, you will find that it has transformed into something magical. What you can see of the flora around the edge is lit by modern street lights and headlights and yet the space looks like something from a fairy tale, not a garden on Sixth Avenue. . . .

United Photo Industries (@united_photo)'s #TheFENCE National Winner- Cravings featuring Lauren Vied Allen ( @viedfinder) & Victoria Bouloubais (@thisfeedsme) . . . Food has become one of the most hyper-glamorized commodities. Dining out is among the fastest growing retail sectors in the country. Through varying levels of (self) awareness, restaurant cooks deftly navigate the complex dynamics of class, privilege, and legal status that play out in a changing South behind the kitchen door. The product of their labor is dignified in public view, glorified on social media--cheekily, as #foodporn. It would not be presumptuous, then, to assume that cooks have developed a culinary expertise far superior to any diner’s palate. But we rarely consider their work as a skill. It’s the immigrant’s contribution to us. The voyeuristic gaze of Instagram food porn dives into an aesthetically symmetrical view of a world that is inherently asymmetrical. . . .
Join United Photo Industries (@united_photo) tomorrow from 6-8PM to celebrate the 6th Edition winners of The Tokyo International Photography Competition. 📸: Jaakko Kahilaniemi (@jkahilaniemi) . . . One could argue that the needs of a person are relatively few: food, water, shelter, companionship. But most of us aspire — desire — to reach beyond our basic needs. We want for more. Unlike needs, wants differ greatly from one person to another. Some may want material goods: a car, a home, an expensive watch or piece of jewelry; while others may want things less tangible: travel far, climb high, dive deep, experience all that life may offer. . . . This year the Tokyo International Photography Competition invited photographers to explore the urgent push-pull relationship between “need” and “want” through their photographic lens.
Kameelah Janan Rasheed ( @kameelahr) will return to her hometown of East Palo Alto to explore the relationship between gentrification, community change, and the preservation of local histories.
