Hurricane Isaac Hits the Gulf Coast

Hurricane Isaac moved inland over southeastern Louisiana yesterday evening and brought with it 75 mph winds, a storm surge and flooding from heavy rains. As of this morning, the Category 1 hurricane was located over Houma, LA (45 miles south of New Orleans), and a hurricane warning remained in effect. The storm is expected to weaken later today to a tropical storm, and by tomorrow should be labeled a tropical depression as it moves further ashore.

Instagrammers from Charleston to New Orleans are capturing the scenes around them and sharing their photos with the tags #isaac and #hurricaneisaac. For the latest updates on the hurricane, visit the New York Timeslive blog.

The Running of the Bulls

The running of the bulls is the highest profile event of the San Fermin festival which is held from July 6-14 every year. Eight encierros will take place over the course of eight days. Search more photos of the event tagged #sanfermin or #pamplona.

Yesterday at 8 AM and again today, the running of the bulls took place in Pamplona, Spain. Runners start each encierro singing a benediction at the statue of the event’s patron saint San Fermín, shouting together “Viva San Fermín!, Gora San Fermín!” (“Long live San Fermin”, in Spanish and Basque). A rocket then signals that all six bulls had been released and the 826 meter sprint begins.

Runners must be over 18 years old and traditionally carry that day’s rolled up newspaper in hand to draw the bulls’ attention. Every year, between 200 and 300 people are injured and 15 people have been killed since record-keeping began in 1924.

Nice, timely photography

GEERT GOIRIS: “RESONANCE”

Geert Goiris’ photography investigates the notion of wilderness as a cultural construction. We talk with the belgian photographer about his ongoing book-project Resonance. «I seek out places where human presence has a efemeral and fleeting aspect: the landscape as a transient place. In many of these places time itself is no longer measured out on an anthropomorphical scale, but moves on with an invisible - immensly slow – pace, a geological instead of a human timeframe». Sometimes the inaccessability of the site itself plays an important role, «the romantic notion of exploration, the sensation of seeing something for the first time, not only as an individual, but also as a society is a tremendous inspiration. And I like to use the camera’s to record this unique encounter».

There’s a reason for choosing extreme places: «I want to show wilderness, the world without us, without humanity, just land and terrain unfit to sustain human beings. Being in hostile surroundings shows how much is at stake. There is an obviously an ecogical position behind this, but I hope it is not limited to that alone. In fact, I find that so called frontier territory is very revealing. The values and rules of organisation we tend to live by, the essence of society is very present in some of these places». An outsider by choice, mapping the outskirts of the known world, looking at the everyday as if it takes on a new appearance. «My images are marked by a double movement of distance and seduction. Distance because there is always space between the photographer and the depicted (a kind of ‘cold’ eye), but at the same time the rich texture, full of details is seducing the viewer to get closer». Closer to a world that doesn’t need humans, as a perfect, selfcontained system, governed by rules of its own.
