    da National Geographic Italia, Aprile 2004.

    [...]
    Jo'burg è sempre stata vanitosa e arrogante, troppo grande rispetto al proprio hinterland: una città che vive al ritmo del mondo industrializzato, piena di sé e tremendamente spietata.

    [...]
    Fu come se la febbre dell'oro del selvaggio West si fosse riversata a Johannesburg. "E' una città in cui lo sperpero più sfrenato si unisce alla miseria più profonda", scrisse uno dei primi turisti. Winston Churchill, allora giovane corrispondente estero, la descrisse come "una Montecarlo sorta su Sodoma e Gomorra".

    Even as Hanoi's streets fill with the noise of engines, the older and quieter ways, like carrying flowers to market by bicycle, remain—for a time. Nearby flower growers are literally losing ground as houses are built where gardens once were planted.

    splendido questo topic, Emack: complimenti per l'idea, e la selezione di immagini, una più bella dell'altra.
    Se riesco, magari cerco anch'io qualcosa.


    A vederle, sembra così facile scattare immagini significative....

    Guatemala e Salvador, prostitute e calciatrici













    Prostitute che giocano a pallone: tra loro e contro una squadra di poliziotte. E' successo in Guatemala e in Salvador, quasi negli stessi giorni. In Guatemala, la squadra in maglia rossa delle "Stars of the Tracks" ("Le stelle della strada") ha perso 3-1 dalle poliziotte. A San Salvador scontro calcistico tra le "Power puff girls" (maglia bianca) e una squadra di lucciole guatemalteche. Partite giocate per sottolineare le condizioni disperate delle ragazze di vita: nessun diritto, 2,5 dollari a prestazione e maltrattattamenti da parte dei poliziotti.

    Descent into the Maya underworld. Fotografie di Stephen L. Alvarez.

    Mesoamerican farmers still perform ancient rituals in sacred caves—portals to the "place of fright."


    Steadfast Faith

    In a mountain cave high above Lake Atitlán in Guatemala, a Maya priest conducts a traditional ceremony, petitioning the ancient gods on behalf of a local man who needs their help. Here, and throughout the Maya heartland of Central America, campesinos still follow such ancestral customs. For them caves are portals to Xibalba—the underworld—a supernatural realm of deities and ancestors, and the birthplace of the clouds that bring rain to their fields.


    Prayer Meeting

    On the eve of a harvest ceremony, almost the entire village of La Compuerta, Guatemala, gather in a neighbor's house for a customary Maya vigil. They lay out offerings of candles, cacao, liquor, and copal, a native incense, sacrifice a duck, and pray all night. At dawn Don Vicente, the majordomo, will collect the offerings and lead the entire village to a nearby cave, an ancient pilgrimage site known as Naj Tunich. Around a bonfire at the cave's entrance everyone will dance, throw seeds into the fire, and give thanks for another year of bountiful produce.


    Two Worlds Converge

    Preparing for the Day of the Cross in May, community elders in Joloniel, Mexico, begin to decorate the Catholic church with plants that symbolize the season of renewal. As they work, the town's Maya tatuch, or ritual leader, offers his prayers. The celebrations that follow include a Mass as well as a pilgrimage to nearby caves to pray for rain. The crosses at each venue symbolize Christianity as well as the intersection of the natural and supernatural Maya world. Since the time of the Spanish conquest, many Catholic and Maya rituals and symbols have been similarly linked, creating a religion of blended beliefs.


    Spiritual Path

    On their May pilgrimage to pray for rain, the residents of Joloniel, Mexico, take along a portrait of the Virgin Mary that usually sits on the altar of the town's church. Their destination is a trio of caves containing artifacts and paintings that indicate ritual use as early as A.D. 300. For these people, the portrait actually becomes the Virgin herself. Women wash her in spring water at two separate caves during the course of the day's ceremonies, which include prayers, lighting candles, burning incense, and drinking aguardiente, a liquor.


    Devotion for the Departed

    In a candlelight procession inaugurating the Day of the Dead, the community of Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala, moves a statue of St. Francis of Assisi from the religious house where it normally resides to the town church. The Maya believe that on this holiday, November 2, the portal to the underworld is opened, and the ancestors who dwell there can pass through it to interact with the living. Through his statue, St. Francis—the lord of the dead—watches over the returning souls that congregate in the church.

    I Moken (Myanmar)
    Fotografie di Nicolas Reynard (RIP )


    Sharing the Sea

    A Burmese fishing boat cuts throughs the Andaman Sea off Myanmar. Though fishing with nets and lines is not part of Moken custom, some Moken men are employed on these vessels—and occasionally die there from diving too deeply or breathing bad air from old compressors.


    Shore Duty

    With family boats anchored and quiet offshore, a Moken woman watches over her children while preparing iron to be forged into a harpoon—often used to spear turtles for ritual festivals.


    Enduring Craft

    The elder Gatcha helps construct a Moken boat for his son, a skill passed down through the generations. The boat, called a kabang, is the mainstay of this nomadic culture. Each is roughed out in the forest from a single tree, then hauled to the beach, where the hull and roof will be built.


    Clear Waters

    Like the turtles of their rituals, the Moken spend much of their time submerged, both for work and play. Plastic goggles are now the fashion among these nomads, who used to carve their eye pieces from wood, then attach glass lenses from broken bottles with tree sap.


    House on the Sea

    At home in the Mergui Archipelago off Myanmar, formerly Burma, Moken children share the limited space of a hand-built kabang. A nuclear family of five or six usually lives on a houseboat, spending most of the year mobile at sea. Each boy will eventually help build a boat of his own.

    China's economy and Manchuria as an engine of growth - Fotografie di Fritz Hoffman




    Conversion Experience
    Inside a Shenyang factory that once churned out tractors, workers scale down, pouring molten iron into molds to make cast-iron fences and gates. Like many of the region's outmoded state-run factories, the plant couldn't compete in China's new open-market economy. When it went bankrupt in 1998, a former employee bought space in the cavernous plant and converted it into a privately run foundry. The workers, however, won't be receiving housing and other steady benefits, like in the old socialist days. The iron rice bowl, as the government-sponsored benefits system was known, is disappearing, replaced, workers hope, by a menu of stock options.



    Passing Era
    When Nian Shifu moved into a model workers' village in the Tiexi Industrial District of Shenyang in 1956, he felt like a privileged patriot of the new China. Hired to work at the state-owned Shenyang Pneumatic Tool Factory, Nian, a veteran of the Communist victory over the Nationalists in 1949 and the Korean War in the early 1950s, was given a government apartment in the city's most modern development. Five decades later, Nian, 76, is on the verge of homelessness. In keeping with China's free-market ideology, the government intends to demolish the workers' decaying village and replace it with an upscale housing development. But Nian and some 400 other dwellers have refused to move, deeming the relocation payment inadequate. "We can't afford to buy a new house," Nian said. "If I moved out, I'd end up on the street." The government reacted by cutting off water and electricity to the units. "They're forcing us out," he said.



    Big Celebration
    Hearts pumping faster than the oil rigs behind them, newlyweds ride in a garlanded car to a reception in Daqing, capital of China's oil industry. Meaning "big celebration" in Chinese, Daqing became a boomtown following the discovery of oil in 1959. With the local industry shrinking due to depleted oil deposits, the former security of refinery work is lost to most of the current generation, descendants of the model workers. If they're lucky, they'll find a future in the region's new boom fields of software, tourism, and telecommunications.
