Captive by Gaston Lacombe
Lacombe on his project:
We relish the chance to see these animals up close, but we also often fail to notice the habitats in which we keep them. That is why I photograph from a regular visitor’s perspective, instead of doing a behind-the-scenes documentary. I want the viewer to revisit what they see in zoos, and look beyond the animal. So, really, these photos are not about the animals - they are about us. It documents what happens when humans use animals as objects of display and entertainment.
this is possibly the saddest post on this site
birth is a monumentally inexplicable alteration of reality. Thank you Ana Álvarez-Errecalde for sharing your images with us.

What a beautiful work of craftsmanship.

A series of Skulls sculptures, by no other than Jim Skull.
I’m not sure if that is his real name, or he’s just that committed to his art, either way I admire the dedication and the work.

War (Mexico - Ciudad Juarez)
In Mexico the war is of a different sort. The so-called “war on drugs” plays out between powerful drug cartels that the police and military try to confine but usually end up becoming a part of. Women are under serious attack. Brutal women’s killings, kidnappings and rapes have skirted the path of drugs. Young girls have been found dead in barrels of acid, mutilated with breast ripped off or abducted to be found dead a month later in the desert.
The underlying causes of these atrocities are complicated and impossible to fully comprehend , but drugs, lawlessness, corruption, innumerous undocumented immigrants and power-hungry cartel member
Mexico: In 2010, Ciudad Juarez was crowned the murder capitol of the world. Murders of women have taken extreme shapes through mutilations, kidnappings, rapes and deformations.
