Για ακόμα μια φορά το National Geographic θα μας εντυπωσιάσει με το φωτογραφικό υλικό του.
Φωτογραφίες γεμάτες μεράκι, που αν τις παρατηρήσει κανείς προσεκτικά προσφέρουν μοναδικά μαθήματα ζωής. Εμπνευσμένες από στιγμές της καθημερινότητας, από ζωές ανθρώπων και όχι μόνο.
Εμείς συγκεντρώσαμε τις 5 καλύτερες της μέρας.
Photo by @chien_chi_chang A half century ago the Lumad people were the largest ethnic group on Mindanao, the largest island in the Philippines. Today they represent less than four percent of the population. The reason is a half century assault on the peaceful communalists by loggers, miners, migrants and wealthy Philippinos who expropriated their tribal lands. Despite the assault they have never taken up arms. #cccontheroad #magnumphotos #pulitzercenter

In 1996, as part of the United Nations' International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, Koryaksky volcano in Russia's far east was designated a “Decade Volcano”, worthy of particular study in light of its history of explosive eruptions and proximity to populated areas. Ten years ago, in 2008, Koryaksky erupted with a 6,000m (20,000ft) plume of ash, the first major eruption in 3,500 years.

Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto from the project COUCHSURFING / Sabali – Les Cayes, Haiti – On the roof of her house in Les Cayes, Sabali has built an outdoor cinema, or the closest thing you can find to one in these parts. Every week she invites her neighbors to watch a movie. She sets up her open-air theater on the roof: a few chairs, wicker loveseats, a couple of hammocks and a white sheet to serve as the projection screen.�This anecdote may be all that's needed to convey her desire to create a real rapport with this place and its people. Sabali is Italian, born in Livorno, Tuscany to an Italian mother and a Beninese father. "In Italy, I was always the black girl. In Africa, I was white. Here in Haiti, I'm just a 'sister'," she told me. It was work that brought her here. She's an agronomist, specialized in tropical crops, and is heading up a program to relaunch Haiti's coffee industry. The country used to be famous the world over for growing and selling coffee, but production has fallen off in the last thirty years. She took me to see where she spends her days, amidst the groves of coffee trees clinging to the mountain slopes, a crop to which she devotes endless time and patience. She and her partner have explored the most remote corners of Haiti together. They took me on long motorcycle rides through wild landscapes and along muddy, broken roads. More than once I closed my eyes, fervently hoping nothing would happen to us along the way. They enjoy cooking and usually have guests at home, like me. When Sabali rented the house, it was explained to her that there were also guards who would ensure her home was secure day and night. It seems that, in Haiti, this is more of a necessity than a nicety. It was news to me and I found it a little shocking. My hosts explained that, in order to adapt to a local culture, foreigners sometimes have to behave how the locals expect them to, and that includes having guards. Later, however, I noticed that their guards were unarmed and that their biggest task, it seemed, was to maintain backyard security, watching over chickens, goats, sheep, a horse and a cow. This was a great couchsurfing experience! @couchsurfing #haiti
