Photo by Ara Oshagan. Armenia.

Father Land by Vahé and Ara Oshagan is a poetic and personal journey through the rugged, human-and-history-laden landscape of Karabagh. It is also a unique collaboration between a photographer son and his famous, writer father. A family steeped in Armenian literature and art, Vahé and Ara Oshagan's work is the result of an intensely felt connection to their heritage and homeland. Father Land is a literary and visual contemplation of Karabagh's present day, its history, and its culture, as well as a meditation on transnational identity, land, and paternal bonds.

A Car Window Perspective on the World
Photographs by Jogien Bakker
Jogien Bakker
Photo by Jogien Bakker. High winds, north west of Islamabad, Pakistan, 2009.
Traveling by car through various countries in Africa and Asia, Jogien Bakker has captured a peculiar, one-sided view of street life, trade, and transport. This collection comes from over a decade of capturing the view of the car passenger: Living in a protected space barring the outside world from entering, while at the same time spying on it--almost as if secretly watching a staged play. The window seal marred with dust and mud, reflections, and halo light effects often frame the view.

Photo by Ireneusz Luty. An essay on the impact of commuting on social life.
With this photographic essay on the negative impact of commuting, Ireneusz Luty brings to light the Commuting Paradox. Although most commuters tolerate the imposition for job opportunities and lower housing costs, research has shown each minute of travel correlates with an increase in health problems. Economists at the University of Zurich found that a commuter who travels an hour each way would need to make 40 percent more in salary to be as "satisfied" with life as a non-commuter.
