1. Iconic Swiss photographer takes us on a journey through six images from his archive, photographing figures like Che Guevara chain-smoking in his office in 1963, Pablo Picasso in Cannes in 1957 and American G.I.s being entertained in a brothel in Seoul in 1961.

    Burri also recalls his iconic 1960 São Paulo photograph 'Men on a Rooftop, 1960', shooting the San Cristobal Stables in Mexico city in 1976 and the reopening of the Suez Canal in 1974, explaining why modern techniques like photoshopping are getting in the way of our pursuit for the truth....

  2. A behind the scenes look at my trip to Chukotka, Russia. I was traveling around Chukotka starting with Anadyr (capital of Chukotka) and into the very deep Tundra where nobody lives except small tribal groups of reindeer herders, staying and photographing them in their everyday life, and it was a life changing experience.

    Two years ago Sasha (photographer) had the amazing opportunity to go literally to the end of the earth to photograph people who never had their photo taken.
    At schools, churches, homes and hospitals I could give people a moment to forget their troubles and just smile for the camera. But while shooting with nomadic reindeer herding families it was me who was most deeply touched by the experience. For although my hosts had few material possessions they shared with me something rare in the world - a sense of peace and satisfaction with life.
    This March we are going back on a new journey across Chukotka. We are going to travel over 1000 miles and reach out to the most unreached places in Chukotka. We will visit people who have never had visitors in their life, stopping by every village and tribe on the way, giving them warm clothes, shoes, gifts, and simply showing them grace and love. The very exciting part of the trip will be taking pictures of the natives, printing them on the spot, and handing them to the villagers. This will be the very first time that these people had ever had their photo taken.As we travel, our video crew will be documenting the lives of the locals who live in the harmony with nature. We want to hear about their lives, struggles, resilience and where they see themselves in this rapidly changing world. Our documentary film about this journey, will bring the voices of this land to people all around the globe. We hope to engage humanity's deep rooted fascination with nature and desire to understand humanity. Perhaps by getting a glimpse of this nomadic way of life we will reflect on this modern world and what in our lives is truly important.

    RISKS AND CHALLENGES

    Weather in Chukotka goes down to -55 -60F, that's why due to the weather conditions we might need to postpone the trip, as our last trip we postponed 3 days because of bad lying conditions from Alaska to Chukotka.
    Our goal is to cover 1000 miles in 3 weeks, as we rely on our All-Terrain vehicle we trust it will take us that far without any issues.Yet as a back up plan we can always utilize snow mobiles which we ended up using on our last trip.
    Due to extreme minus cold temperatures we cannot guarantee how much film or photography we will be able to create.
