Young Garbage Pickers in India

1
In this November 18, 2014 photo, Murshida, 12, sits on the lap of her mother Marjina as the train leaves for their village in West Bengal, at a railway station in New Delhi, India. Six months ago, Marjina stepped off a train in New Delhi with her two children, hoping to find a better life after her husband abandoned them without so much as a goodbye. The family spent their days at a landfill picking through other people’s garbage to find salvageable bits to resell or recycle. After six months of poverty, illness and shame, they returned to that train station in New Delhi, headed back to an uncertain future to their hometown in West Bengal. (Photo by Altaf Qadri/AP Photo)

The World’s Best Japanese Whisky

A worker sweeps leaves below a historic spirit still at Suntory Holdings’ Yamazaki Distillery in Shimamoto town, Osaka prefecture, near Kyoto, December 1, 2014. Nestled at the foot of wooded hills near the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto, the Yamazaki whisky distillery feels a long way from the northerly glens of Scotch’s spiritual home. Despite its unlikely birthplace, last month Yamazaki’s Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013 trumped more than a thousand challengers to be named the world’s best whisky by leading critic Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible 2015.

“The Last Iceberg” by Camille Seaman

1
Documenting the effects of climate change first hand over the past eight years, Camille Seaman fears we may be on the road to the last iceberg. Photographing the enormous frozen floats at both poles for the past eight years, the Californian adventurer has seen the receding ice shelves and experienced the changing warmer weather. Feeling that her intimate and emotional work documents a snapshot of history, Camille presents her series “The Last Iceberg” as a study of what she sees as the personality of each huge iceberg.

Drawing parallels with the famous novel, “The Last of the Mohicans”, Camille, 42, wonders whether these unique, almost alien natural features will become a thing of the past or part of nature’s renewal processThese are the stunning images of some of the polar ice caps most endangered regions. Camille Seamans shots include poignant images of the likes of polar bears, penguins and melting ice shelves. The works feature in Camilles latest book, “Melting Away”, which the photographer has been working on since 2003. Release on December 2nd, the book features images from the Arctic and Antarctic between 2003 and 2011. (Photos by Camille Seaman/Barcroft Media)

Four Seasons of Chino Farm

1
Clouds gather over recently planted fields on the Chino family farm in Rancho Santa Fe, California March 7, 2013. The gravitational pull of Chino Farm is legendary. Since they don’t ship, everyone – whether a top chef or a traveling foodie or a local resident – comes to the farm stand, simply called “Vegetable Shop”, on a dusty corner of this affluent San Diego County town, hemmed in by sprawling housing estates. Long before farmers’ markets and heirloom vegetables popped up across the country, Tom Chino’s parents bought the 45-acre (18.2-hectare) farm after World War Two and forged their independence from wholesalers and supermarkets, setting their prices and cultivating a diverse offering of crops.
