A woman makes sure that her child; the hunter’s grandson is safely secure. Mongolia. Western Mongolia is one of the least densely populated places on the planet. Surrounded by glacier-wrapped mountains, arid plains, barely any trees and temperatures which fall below -40C, life can be brutally hard for the nomadic families who make their homes and tend their cattle here.

Bigeye Trevally forming a “tornado” at Cabo Pulmo National Park, Mexico
. A few years ago, local fisherman decided to stop fishing and bet all on ecotourism. That bet was successful economically, socially, and ecologically speaking. What used to be an almost lifeless place now has a complete life chain, even bull sharks are back and orcas come and visit often. Cabo Pulmo is a true example that by letting the ocean recover, it will do so by itself.

Selfie culture started to determine our existence; everybody needs to know where we are or are we doing something. While we are waiting for the approval of others, we miss the opportunity to enjoy the mysterious world around us. The photo was taken at the Massive Attack concert in Pula/Croatia, in August 2016.

North Korea is a totalitarian dictatorship based on the cult of the Kim dynasty. The incessant propaganda against the USA portraits the South Korean population as a victim of the American invasion; young generations live in a constant alert state as if the USA could attack any day. Youngsters have been educated to be knowledgeable people, especially in the scientific field, to foster the development of armaments and technology, chasing the dream of reuniting Korea in a whole and free state.

In Bangladesh, the brick industry employs men, women (sometimes pregnant) and children to work in brickyards in harsh and dangerous conditions. Wearing no protective gear, they work 12-18 hours breathing air filled with toxic particles to produce bricks. Children aged only 5-6 years, are working like slaves for $1 a day. Children who do not have access to education have little choice but to enter the labor market where they are often exploited and unable to escape the cycle of poverty.

The Kowloon Walled City was the densest place on Earth. Hundreds of houses stacked on top of each other enclosed in the center of the structure. Many didn’t have access to open space.This notorious city was finally demolished in 1990s. However, if you look hard enough, you will notice that the city is not dead. Part of it still exists in many of current high density housing apartments. I hope this series can get people to think about claustrophobic living in Hong Kong from a new perspective.

This leopard was eating the carcass of a Wildebeest, while we were watching and shooting it from close range. Suddenly, a hyena appeared and it started annoying the leopard with its characteristic laughter and pacing. The big cat would not give up its prey easily: in a threatening posture it flashed its fangs and huffed to prove the intruder that he was much stronger.
