1. Located 30km from Dakar (Senegal), Mbeubeuss is an unauthorized dump site, where each day, 350 rubbish trucks dump an estimated 1,300 tons of household waste, from Dakar and environs. It is an ecological bomb:    Since its creation in 1968, the dumpsite has been growing and increasingly gaining ground, polluting surrounding waters, soils and the environment. But Mbeubeuss is also a source of income for about 1,800 people who work in and earn their living from the dump site.

An infected male sheep crab is feminized by a parasitic barnacle. It stops developing fighting claws, and its abdomen widens, providing a “womb” for the barnacle to fill with its brood pouch. Nurtured by the crab, the eggs hatch. Thousands of baby barnacles disperse to infect anew.

March 6th, 2014. Caracas, Venezuela. A National Police officer behind a riot shield is pushed backwards by a crush of demonstrators during the March of the Empty Pots, which coincided with International Women's Day.  A month into a wave of unrest that has spread across Venezuela, protests continued daily in the upper class enclave of Altamira, Caracas, as well as other parts of the city and country. Protesters are calling for solutions to a staggering rate of street crime, skyrocketing inflation, and a rash of food shortages that have led to long lines at grocery stores and lack of access to goods such as milk, sugar, and flour. While many large protests have been peaceful, the youth demonstrations each afternoon in Altamira are consistently characterized by exchanges of tear gas canisters and sometimes birdshot on the part of police, and rocks, molotov cocktails and other fireworks on the part of the protesters.
