Photo by Nathan Benn // Man with cat. Actually, it’s Tennessee Williams with his cat in Key West. I took this picture in 1981 in his windowless studio behind his house in Key West. Mr. Williams worked several hours each morning at a manual typewriter without distraction before eating a meal and going for a swim. A parrot and bulldog kept company with the cat. Sadly, the greatest American playwright of the 20th Century died just a couple years later and this is one of the last pictures in his lifetime. I photographed Mr. Williams for a Florida state story in National Geographic Magazine. My pictures from that coverage are the subject of a major exhibition in Miami and a 200-page book published by PowerHouse Books. The book is available on Amazon at: www.amazon.com/Peculiar-Paradise-Florida-Photographs/dp/1576879011/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1543592431&sr=1-1&keywords=a+peculiar+paradise&fbclid=IwAR0HonRosU5YrZpghBRyX1iHA142CMeCZWpMk9ulzRrClhInAxpORrLjkDI “A Peculiar Paradise: Florida Photographs” exhibition will be up at HistoryMiami Museum until April 14, 2019. #cats #cat #tennesseewilliams
Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - Relocating black rhino, Easter

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - Relocating black rhino, Eastern Cape, South Africa - it may not appear less stressful to move them this way (for the rhino anyway) but believe me it is. In this huge relocation from a National Park in South Africa to another undisclosed location, black rhino were darted from the helicopter and once tranquillised, lifted by the same helicopter from the impenetrable bush the short distance to another waiting vet team, where they were woken, and placed into trucks for the tar road journey to their new home. The alternative option of trying to extract them by hand, road, foot, from the dense bush would have been far more stressful than a short sleepy flight. Worth pointing out that this extraordinary team had zero injuries, zero fatalities during the entire move of these amazing creatures.

Photo by @rubensalgadoescudero // An oozie (elephant handler) rides his elephant after having collected him early in the morning in the forest near Maing Hint Sal elephant logging camp. Elephants are left to roam freely from the early evening until the next morning. Myanmar has ended up with the largest population of captive Asian elephants in the world, the second largest population of Asian elephants overall. One year ago, the Trump administration announced that it would lift a ban imposed by the Obama administration on importing elephant heads, feet and other body parts severed as trophies after the animals are shot for sport in Zimbabwe. A few weeks ago the administration said it would end a similar ban on imports from Zambia. Lifting this ban could endanger gains made by governments and environmental groups to protect elephants from illegal trade in ivory and other body parts. #photography #documentary #storytelling #photooftheday #portrait #travel #picoftheday #everydaymexico #art #dailylife #500px #instagram #visualsoflife #portrait #natgeo #rubensalgadoescudero #nationalgeographic #myanmar #elephant

Photo by @joepetersburger/@thephotosociety // THE DESSERT // Common #starling (Sturnus vulgaris) arrives to her #chick with a white #mulberry (Morus alba). I am more than happy to announce that a feature story in @natgeo Italy about starlings just got published with this pic as an opening spread. We made the photographic coverage with great old friend, @natgeocreative photographer @pitamitz. Text was written by Alessandro Montemaggiori. This pic was taken at my friend’s farm, where he allowed me to set birdhouses for starlings. Only about 20 miles from my current residency in #Hungary. No need to travel far away for fantastic experience. Travel less, discover your backyard, reduce your ecological footprint!

Photo by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez) | Majalis al Jinn is one of the most spectacular places I have ever seen. It is an 11 acre cave room in the Sultanate of Oman. In August when I shot this image a shaft of light illuminates the room. Access is by way of a 600 foot drop down the middle of the cavern. I am offering this images as part of my Winter Flash Print Sale. Follow the link in @salvarezphoto profile for more info. Shot on assignment for @natgeo #oman #majalisaljinn

Photo by @amivitale for @rippleeffectimages. Mothers anxiously wait to board Friendship Hospital’s floating treatment center near the Brahmaputra River in Northwestern #Bangladesh. For most the barge-turned-hospital is the only access they have to modern medical care, as traditional facilities are made more difficult to access by ever-worsening effects of climate change. For the locals of this region, frequent and unpredictable storms can isolate them for months at a time, placing hospitals and doctors out of reach for those who are too weak or too poor to make the journey. The Friendship (@friendshipngo) Floating Hospital offers an innovative solution to the crisis, bringing care along waterways directly to those who need it. #health #healthcare #globalwarming #climaterefugees #refugees #chars #climatechange #oceans

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // We met up with the Top To Top boat in Ittoqqortoormiit and because of the impending weather we immediately set sail for Iceland. We sailed directly east to begin with, to get beyond the ice in the East Greenland current as soon as possible, and then turned south. Whilst carrying out our watches, it gave us a time to reflect on what we had seen and what might have been had the caves turned out to be caves. Nevermind. #EAGRE18 @Greenland_Caves
