In the scope of the US Midterms elections, NPR talked with Andrea Bruce about her latest project "Our Democracy". For the past 15 years, Andrea Bruce worked as a photojournalist in foreign countries that were at war or were in conflict. Places like Iraq and Afghanistan, where elections were often accompanied with corruption, sacrifice, protests and, often, death. Now, Andrea Bruce has been traveling throughout the United States to document why some voters won't cast their ballot this year.

How do photographers present their subjects in a way that ensures dignity, empowerment and inclusion? How do documentary photographers stay focused on issues that raise awareness of the social and political environment and get involved to influence the outcomes of these situations?

Leonard Pongo's long-term project The Uncanny long-term photography project shot in the D.R. Congo will be projected at the International Center of Photography (ICP).

During the day, The Uncanny can be viewed on monitors inside the ICP Museum and during evening hours, images are literally “projected” onto the windows of the ICP Museum; they can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the Museum and are most visible after sunset.

"Arctic: New Frontier", a pioneering double expedition by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen which explores the effects of climate change on the entire Arctic territory, is published in the Washington Post as a online feature as well as a weekend supplement.

Through their project, they experienced the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants. This project is the 9th Prix Carmignac for Photojournalism, funded by the Carmignac Foundation.

 Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region   Russia  September  2018
The Yamal peninsula in western Siberia, a homeland of nomadic Nenets reindeer herders.
The Nenets people of the Siberian arctic are the guardians of a style of reindeer herding that is the last of its kind. Through a yearly migration of over a thousand kilometres, these people move gigantic herds of reindeer from summer pastures in the north to winter pastures just south of the Arctic Circle. No-one knows for certain whether it is the reindeer that lead the people or vice versa. What is certain is that fewer places on earth are home to a more challenging environment, an environment where temperatures plummet to -50C and where crossing the worlds fifth largest river as it deep-freezes is just part of the routine. Such a difficult environment unites the people physically through a regimented work ethic, but far more importantly, the Yamal-Nenets are unified by a robust and vibrant culture. It is a culture that has had to survive a turbulent history, from early Russian colonisation, to Stalin’s terror regime, to the modern day dangers of a rapacious oil and gas development programme.
