Photos: Mourning in New Zealand (25 photos)

Days after the worst mass shooting in New Zealand’s history, residents of Christchurch gathered at memorial sites that grew outside mosques and churches, bringing flowers, candles, and messages of sorrow and love. As people mourn the 50 killed last Friday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is calling for stricter national gun laws, and says she will seek answers from social-media companies about the live-streaming and dissemination of video of the attack. Gathered below, images from Christchurch over the past few days.

Historic Flooding Across the Midwest (24 photos)

Historic Flooding Across the Midwest (24 photos)

At least three people are confirmed to have lost their lives so far amid record-setting floods affecting parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and other nearby states. Thousands of people have been asked to evacuate, and many have been away from their homes for days in hard-hit Nebraska, following last week’s “bomb cyclone” weather system that dropped huge amounts of precipitation—adding to existing troubles from heavy snow melt and ice-choked rivers. Dams and levees were overwhelmed, roads have been washed away, and some neighborhoods, farms, and military bases now sit in water up to 8 feet deep. As some of the rivers in eastern Nebraska are beginning to recede and others are expected to crest within 24 hours, worries are growing for areas downstream, along the Mississippi River Valley.

Soundbites: Dogs on the Microphone (18 photos)

Soundbites: Dogs on the Microphone (18 photos)

Once in a while, reporters in the field find themselves presented with the opportunity—or challenge—to interview a famous pup, or a four-legged-friend who has just made the news, or simply a dog that’s finally had its day. I’ve gathered a few of these very important moments, captured in news photos below, from the past 90 years.

Ongoing Blackouts Hit Already Struggling Venezuelans (28 photos)

Ongoing Blackouts Hit Already Struggling Venezuelans (28 photos)

Last Thursday, a massive power outage struck across much of Venezuela, affecting huge parts of its infrastructure, from clean water and food storage to medical care, communications, and more. Amid a years-long economic crisis and building political crisis, the Venezuelan government and its opposition are blaming each other for the collapse of the power grid. Electricity has been slowly restored to parts of Caracas, but rolling blackouts remain, and much of the rest of the country is still in the dark. Collected here, photos from the past week, taken in Caracas, in San Cristóbal, and on the border with Colombia.

Maslenitsa 2019 Celebrations (21 photos)

Maslenitsa 2019 Celebrations (21 photos)

Maslenitsa is an ancient ceremony—a farewell to winter celebrated since pagan times in Slavic regions in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and other countries. Maslenitsa, or Pancake Week, is both a folk and religious holiday tied to Shrovetide, the carnival before Lent. Some traditional festivities include the burning of effigies of “Lady Maslenitsa,” family visits, snowball fights, and the cooking and eating of blini, pancakes, or crepes. Below, some images of Maslenitsa this year from Russia, Belarus, and Kyrgyzstan.

Whitney Barron greets Chrystall Cooper during the annual Mardi Gras parade in Sydney, Australia, on March 2, 2019. It is the first time the charity "Haka For Life" has had a float in the Sydney Mardi Gras parade. The float is designed like a Waka Canoe, which is significant in Maori culture, with the theme of "One Waka, One Love, we’re all in the same boat together." Haka For Life is an organization focused on men's health, wellbeing and suicide prevention in the Maori community. The organization believes there is a stigma among Maori warrior culture that implies that people who identify as LGBTQI are not warriors. The Sydney Mardi Gras parade began in 1978 as a march and commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Riots of New York. It is an annual event promoting awareness of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues and themes. ( Lisa Maree Williams / Getty) Original link

The Women Who Are Clearing the Minefields in Sri Lanka (21 photos)

The Women Who Are Clearing the Minefields in Sri Lanka (21 photos)

It has been nearly 10 years since the end of the Sri Lankan Civil War, a horrific conflict that lasted more than 25 years and claimed an estimated 100,000 lives. A decade later, landmines and unexploded ordnance still litter the northern landscape, endangering those who are trying to return to their previous lives. Allison Joyce, a photographer with Getty Images, recently spent time with some of the Tamil women, many of them widows and survivors of the war, who work for the HALO Trust, one of the NGOs working to clear one of the largest minefields in the world. Joyce said “44 percent of HALO’s staff working in the minefields are female, of which 62 percent are the primary breadwinners of their family, and 37 percent have had relatives who were injured, killed, or went missing during the civil war. As of January 31, 2019, HALO Sri Lanka has cleared 309,354 mines and unexploded ordnance in Sri Lanka.”

In 2009 Sujitha's village, Uruthirapuram village, was heavily shelled and she the military moved in and took her and her family to a camp. Her husband was not home at that time and is presumed dead. After more than a year she was allowed to return home. She joined HALO Trust in 2010 and her first job was to clear landmines from her own village. She is the sole breadwinner of her family and her salary supports her, her mother, daughter and niece. ( Allison Joyce / Getty) Original link

Photos of the Destruction Caused by Tornadoes in Alabama (28 photos)

On March 3, a tornado outbreak struck several southern states in the U.S., including Alabama, where a monster of a tornado reached estimated wind speeds of 170 mph, leaving a path of devastation more than 20 miles long in Lee County, killing 23 people and injuring at least 100 others. In the days since, survivors have been picking through the pieces of their homes, recovering what they can, as they try to determine their next steps.

Carnival 2019 in Brazil (30 photos)

In Rio de Janeiro, tens of thousands of spectators jammed into the Sambadrome to watch the spectacle of samba-school floats, dancers, and extravagant costumes during Carnival. Even more people took part in the many blocos, or street parties, dancing and drinking into the wee hours of the night. Collected here are images from Rio and São Paulo, Brazil, during Carnival 2019.

The Masks We Wear (30 photos)

The Masks We Wear (30 photos)

We wear masks for many reasons: for fun, for protection, or to make a statement. In turbulent public settings, obscuring one's face can protect an individual from retaliation while evoking fear and uncertainty in others. Donning the mask of a cultural, political, or religious figure can ridicule that person, or lend them power and further their legacy. Those who wear masks to protect their faces from environmental hazards may also end up sending a message of caution to observers. In many cases, though, masks play a more lighthearted role, allowing the wearer to take part in a festival and become someone (or something) else for a time. Once again, I've gathered here a few recent images of people wearing masks, covering their faces for a wide variety of reasons.

Winners of the 2019 Underwater Photographer of the Year Contest (24 photos)

Organizers of the Underwater Photographer of the Year Contest announced the winning photographers and images for this year, with photographer Richard Barnden from the UK being named Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019. More than 5,000 images were submitted by photographers from around the world. Prizes and commendations were handed out in categories including Wide Angle, Macro, Wrecks, Behavior, Portrait, Black & White, Compact, Up & Coming, and, in British waters, Wide Angle, Living Together, Compact, and Macro shots. UPY was once again kind enough to share some of this year's honorees with us below, with captions written by the photographers.

Caretta Caretta Turtle: Winner, Marine Conservation and "Marine Conservation Photographer of the Year 2019". Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) spend much of their life in the open ocean. They come to the Canary Island after crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Caribbean beaches. In this trip of many years they often have to avoid many dangerous traps like plastics, ropes, fishing nets etc. In this particular case this one got trapped in a net and it was practically impossible to escape... but this day it was very lucky, and thanks to the help of two underwater photographers who were sailing near her, was able to escape.

The 2019 Oscar Awards in Photos (34 photos)

The 91st Academy Awards took place last night in Hollywood, and, despite the lack of a host, moved along at a good pace. Nominees and their supporters dressed to impress, the winners sparked celebration (and controversy), tears were shed, speeches made, and parties attended. You should definitely read Hannah Giorgis about Black Panther’s technical wins, but I also invite you to view the collection of photos below, from last night’s festivities.

Photos: Closing In on the Last ISIS Stronghold (26 photos)

Photos: Closing In on the Last ISIS Stronghold (26 photos)

In recent months, a U.S.-backed coalition of Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has been attacking and closing in on the last remaining ISIS holdout, in eastern Syria. What remains of the so-called caliphate that once controlled more than 30,000 square miles in Syria and Iraq can now fit into less than half of one square mile in a small village called Baghouz. Weeks of air strikes and bombardment have driven out many fighters, as well as thousands of civilians, who are turning themselves over to SDF soldiers. The advance was paused today while negotiations took place for the release of more civilians, but the last few ISIS jihadists remain boxed in, with few options left.

Photos of the Super Snow Moon (18 photos)

Photos of the Super Snow Moon (18 photos)

Last night, skywatchers around the world were treated to views of the so-called super snow moon, the largest full moon of the year, which happens to take place in February. The moon appeared about 10 percent larger than average as it approached its closest point in orbit, about 220,680 miles (356,760 kilometers) from Earth. Though the moon might appear larger and brighter, the size difference is actually so small that a casual observer would probably never notice. Nonetheless, photographers across the globe captured the event; here are 18 of the most super images of this year’s super snow moon.

The theme of this year’s Carnival in Venice is “Tutta colpa della Luna,” or “Blame the Moon,” inspired by the 50-year mark since humans first walked on the moon. Festivities kicked off this weekend, with a nighttime floating parade, and will last until March 5. Collected here, colorful images from the opening days of Carnival 2019 in Venice.
