Nota do Autor

O Nepal tem uma das maiores incidências de tráfico de pessoas no mundo, além de ter pobreza extrema e baixo índice de alfabetização. Por esses motivos — sem contar o generoso apoio do meu colega nepalês Madhu Acharya — eu tinha certeza que jornalismo em HQ poderia fazer a diferença a informar as comunidades locais nas suas bases. Eu trabalho no Nepal desde outubro de 2012, usando jornalismo investigativo em HQ para cobrir o tráfico de pessoas para sites como BBC Online, Poynter Institute, e agora o Symbolia.

Essa história foi traduzida para o nepalês e distribuída por ONGs em todo o país. Ele é parte de um estudo pioneiro feito em parceria com as Universidades de Stanford e Vanderbilt para medir os impactos de diferentes tipos de mídia (HQ, brochuras e rádio) em transmitir a mensagem anti-tráfico de pessoas em áreas remotas. Essas histórias, ouvidas em primeira mão de testemunhas que sobreviveram a esse crime, farão parte da minha novela em quadrinhos “No Home For You Here”, que vai mostrar também o processo jornalístico por trás das entrevistas assim como os desafios de cobrir tráfico de pessoas em tempo real usando a linguagem dos quadrinhos

Essa reportagem em HQ foi publicada na edição especial ‘Heroínas’ da revista digital de jornalismo em quadrinhos Symbolia

Captivating Geometric GIFs by Florian de Looij

by Christopher Jobson

florian-7

Florian de Looij first sat down with a copy of Photoshop when he was 12 years old and apparently he never got up. The Netherlands-based designer has been exploring digital animation and illustration ever since, and late last year started sharing his animation experiments on a Tumblr called FLRN GIF. Florian says he’s always been inspired by the likes of M.C. Escher and other artists working with optical illusions, something that has clearly influenced the direction of his design practice. He tries to make a new GIF each day, and you can see tons more in his archives. (via Cross Connect)

Vertical Forest: An Urban Treehouse That Protect Residents from Air and Noise Pollution

by Kate Sierzputowski

A potted forest of trees and branching steel beams disguise this 5-story apartment building in Turin, Italy. Designed by Luciano Pia, 25 Verde brings plants up off the ground in an attempt to evade Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and integrate life into the facade of the residential building.

The undulating structure creates a transition from outdoors to in, holding 150 trees that absorb close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide an hour. This natural absorption brings pollution protection to its residents, helping to eliminate harmful gasses caused by cars and harsh sounds from the bustling streets outside. The trees’ seasonal progression also creates the ideal microclimate inside the building, steadying temperature extremes during the cold and warmer months. The plants’ full foliage block rays of sun during the summer while letting in warm light during the winter.

The building holds 63 units, each benefiting from the terraces and vegetation just beyond their windows and walls. Each species of plant has been chosen purposefully from deciduous plant life in Turin to provide the highest variety of color, foliage, and blooming. This innovative design provides a childlike dream while also instilling real world benefits to those who live in this urban treehouse. (via Divisare)

Bolt Poetry: A Blacksmith Evokes Surprisingly Human Forms from Single Steel Bolts

Oslo-based blacksmith and photographer Tobbe Malm manages to create unusually emotional sculptures using old bolts. The series began when Malm stumbled onto the rusting bolts at a barn in Bergsladen, Sweden. He immediately recognized the wide caps and slender stems as having humanistic qualities so he gathered them up and proceeded to heat, forge, twist and bend them into shape in his studio. The resulting collection of sculptures titled Bolt Poetry, evokes humanistic moments of affection, sadness, and pain. You can see more of his work on Behance. (via Lustik)

Improve Your Posture with these Exercises from the Army Field Manual

by Herbert Lui

Improve Your Posture with these Exercises from the Army Field Manual

Posture can affect a lot of things, including our confidence and how other people feel about us. Teach yourself good posture by practicing these exercises from the Army Field Manual. Good posture is a habit that pays off over time.

The Army Field Manual features ten exercises that require you to move in a variety of different directions and ways. I found performing Exercise 1, which involves a lot of arm swinging, to be particularly relieving when I get out of my seat. Some of these exercises are pretty conspicuous and may be difficult to do in a suit or formal pants, but a lot of them can still be performed in the workplace.

These exercises are great to get you out of your seat. While you're in your seat, you can do yourself a favor by fixing your computer hunch and other posture problems.

Anamorphic Work with Cylindrical Mirror

by Valentin

L’artiste hongrois István Orosz imagine des illustrations anamorphiques incroyables. Il dessine et peint des images qui semblent n’avoir aucun sens jusqu’à ce que vous placiez un miroir cylindrique au sommet de l’oeuvre d’art. István utilise de des algorithmes qui lui permettent de concrétiser ses idées sur le papier.

French Artist ‘Levalet’ Injects Humor into the Streets of Paris with New Site-Specific Street Art

levalet-jackhammer

A bronze bull head fountain is suddenly transformed into a minotaur. A decrepit corner of an alley becomes a holding pen for ostriches. If any of these odd happenings sound familiar to you, you’re probably living in Paris and have just witnessed the work of French artist Charles Leval (previously). Going by the name Levalet, the artist injects humor into the streets of Paris by gluing animal and human-shaped pasteups onto walls. A lot of thought goes into location too as each piece usually interacts with its environment in one way or another.

Levalet has been updating his site and facebook page with new work he’s created so far in 2015. When not on the streets, Levalet can be found in a classroom (he teaches art) and in a gallery (he held an exhibition late last year at Galerie Geraldine Zberro). “I was looking for places and contexts to operate,” says Levalet, referring to his prime medium: the wall. “The street became a creative space I had to invade.” (via StreetArtNews)

Impressive Storms Photography

by Donnia

Depuis 2012, la photographe américaine Camille Seaman est ce qu’on appelle « une chasseuse de tornades ». Elle parcourt beaucoup de régions des Etats-Unis telles que le Nebraska, Texas, Minnesota, Kansas ou encore l’Oklahoma, à la recherche de la tornade la plus élégante. Elle se retrouve à chaque fois confrontée à un ballet de nuages qui semblent aspirer l’horizon.

Macro Photos That Focus In on the Beautiful Details of Ordinary Things

Grain of white sugar by pyanek (AWWOW)

Can you tell what the translucent object is in the photograph above? It’s a single grain of sugar captured in a macro photograph by artist Pyanek, whose “Amazing Worlds Within Our World” project is a series of macro shots that show the beautiful details of ordinary things — things that we generally don’t (or can’t) see with our naked eyes.

Here’s the project presented in video form. For each of the photos, see if you can figure out what the photo is of before the answer shows up on the screen:

The photos were captured using a Canon T3i DSLR with a reversed kit lens and edited with HeliconFocus (focus stacking), Lightroom, and Exposure 5.

Adorable Photos of a Little Trio’s Daily Nap Time

10919064_757879427621687_1864667876_n

In Jessica Shyba‘s home, nap time is a sacred ritual. At the same time every day, her son Beau, baby Evangeline, and dog Theo take a cuddly nap together in her room. And while nap time is underway, Shyba will often take the opportunity to capture a heartwarming photograph of the little trio cuddling together in bed.

Shyba first began this project a couple of years ago when Beau was a toddler and Theo was a puppy. The images soon went viral online, attracting millions of views and hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers for Shyba. Next month the images will be published in a photo book titled “Naptime with Theo and Beau.”

In September 2014, Shyba’s daughter Evangeline was born. The baby has since joined in on the naps, adding a whole new degree of cuteness to Shyba’s snapshots:

Shyba tells the Huffington Post that the little baby is “still a little confused by Theo, but she seems to find his kisses and attention to be affectionate.” On her blog, Shyba writes that Beau, Evangeline, and Theo form “a naptime trifecta”:

[…] of the three of them, [Beau] looks forward to and expects his naps the most every day. I suppose I would too if I had a sweet, loving and cuddly furball napping companion like Beau does. Lately, instead of me announcing that it’s time for “nite-nite”, Theo will already be waiting for Beau in our room at nap time, something that we both find endlessly hilarious and adorable.

She says she’s trying to enjoy these beautiful moments for as long as they last: “I’m trying not to get my hopes up that this magical nap time trifecta is a habit that will last, but each day this happens — with or without Evvie — I’m ever in awe at their sweet slumber.”

You can follow along with this photo series through Shyba’s Instagram and website.

What a Movie’s Scenes Look Like Straight Out of the Camera Versus In Theaters

Here’s an interesting look at the magic that goes into making movies look the way they do. The video above shows how scenes in one particular movie looked straight out of the camera compared to the finished version after color grading. It’s like the video equivalent of the before-and-after post-processing examples photographers often share on the Web.

The footage was shot using a Sony F55 at 4K in LOG and was then color graded by Taylre Jones of the Kansas City-based Grade. Here’s Jones’ explanation of what LOG format is (in layman’s terms):

The image is shot in a LOG format on an F55. In simple terms, this captures the image to maintain details. As stated, this allows me to be able to stretch the image in more creative directions.

You might compare it to winding a flexible 100ft extension cord up into a small circle. If the film only calls for needing 65ft to tell the story I have the ability to manipulate the cord and pull it out to 65ft. When cameras don’t shoot in their LOG or flat modes it is sort of like taking the flexibility out of the cord. It’s pretty much stuck at being 100ft long.

Jones also says that each of the shots you see above took around 10-15 separate adjustments. They were grouped into 1-4 sweeps for the sake of brevity.

Here are a couple screenshots of the before-and-after comparisons seen in the video:

In case you’re wondering, the movie is an independent feature film called “The House on Pine Street.”
