      from Vadim Sahakian Added 95.3K 1,206 85

      The idea was to road trip from Alaska to Los Angeles, explore Southern and Central Africa, and tour South America on dirt bikes. Reaching a tipping point, my friend and I decided it was time. We booked a one-way ticket to Alaska, bought a used truck, and hit the road. This documents our journey for 6 months, over 3 continents, in 13 countries. Our travels stretched across the United States, Canada, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Bolivia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia.

      • 2012 in 366 Seconds


        from James Bernal Added 81.1K 707 62

        Another year done come and went, you guys. In an effort to document my year, I filmed one second of everyday for the whole year, a sort of different approach to a time-lapse video. A lot happened in 2012 - I moved out of Bed-Stuy to Chicago, went to Colombia, turned 26, got paid to travel to the Galapagos Islands and Barcelona. I started some new jobs, quit some old ones, and hey, I guess the world didn't end. It was a year when seeing a humpback whale in the wild was no big deal on one day and other days when the most exciting moment involved standing in line at the post office. Here's hoping to more of the former and less of the latter in 2013. If you pay attention, you'll spot tons of friends, bike rides, planes, trains, and automobiles, sea turtles, some performances by The Drums, The Promise Ring, and Beach House, a marimonda, eagle rays, Wyatt Cenac, the world's tallest species of palm tree, Barcelona, a bathtub filled with PBRs, plenty of dogs, Notorious BIG, a lotta pizza, Riff Raff, and a whole buncha other stuff. Pretty much everything was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, a gopro, and a (now stolen) iPhone.

              Dos veces a la semana por más de medio siglo, Baltazar Ushca ha subido por las laderas del Chimborazo, la montaña más alta en Ecuador, para cosechar el hielo de los glaciares naturales. Incluso sus hermanos, Gregorio y Juan, ambos criados como hieleros, se han retirado de la montaña para encontrar un trabajo más estable. Esta es una historia del cambio cultural y estilo de la vida indígena a través de la perspectiva de tres hermanos, quienes han experimentado con el cambio cultural.
