photo @chien_chi_chang October 28, 2017. Since late August, Myanmar military has conducted clearance operations burning over 200 Rohingya villages in Rakhine State which have caused reportedly half a million Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. With no guarantee for safe return by the Myanmar government, they can only wait with no hope on the horizon. Meanwhile, they are scattered around makeshift refugee camps outside of Cox’s Bazar. Remember Rwanda?! #RohingyaCrisis #Magnum Photos #cccontheroad

Photo by @ciriljazbec / Greenlandic dog is not a pet dog but a working dog that Inuit hunters and fishermen use for dog-sledding. They are the least know casualties of climate change. With the disappearance of sea ice, they have become a burden, which is why unfortunately some hunters are forced to shoot them. It is too expensive to sustain and feed them throughout the year when they can only use them for shorter and shorter periods of time. I took this portrait while crossing the frozen sea on my way to Siorapaluk, one of the northernmost settlement on the planet.

The Badshahi Mosque, or the “Emperor’s Mosque,” is the second largest #mosque in #Pakistan and South Asia and the 5th largest in the world. It opened in 1673, and remained the largest mosque in the world for 313 years until 1986 when the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad was completed. #Pakistan #independence #homeland #Muslim #travel #tbt #fromthearchives

Photo by @williamalbertallard // Summer of 1993, a blur of poppies fronting some olives trees in Provence. Just enough breeze to bend and smear the layers of color, scarlet, yellow, and green. This was not far from Aix-en-Provence where Paul Cezanne lived and worked the countryside near Mont Sainte-Victoire, one of his favorite motifs. The south of France drew many artists to its landscapes and continues to do so. #followme @williamalbertallard for images from France and other assignments spanning five decades. #france #southoffrance #poppies #olive #olivetree #color #colors #aixenprovence #french #flowers #paulcezanne

Photo by: @renaeffendiphoto // Sheep, goats, and chickens are kept on the rooftops of these unfinished homes in Cairo’s ‘ashwayats’ or informal neighborhoods. Egypt’s population growth has spiked in the past decade with most pressures falling on the greater Cairo, its population of over 20 million makes it one of the largest metropolises in the world. While the demand for new housing grows exponentially, chaotic construction not only takes over green spaces and farmlands, but also threatens the city’s cultural heritage.

Photo by @christian_foto ( Christian Rodríguez ) Texolo waterfall park located in the Municipality of Xico, in Veracruz, Mexico. The main waterfall has an approximate height of 78.7 feet. There is a bridge over the ravine that connects both parts of the forest. On the other side, there are two smaller waterfalls that can be seen from some of the trails in the area. The waterfalls and their surroundings have been used to film several films. Photo by @christian_foto #waterfall #xico #veracurz #mexico
