Manicaragua, Cuba, 1999 Photograph by David Alan Harvey “Though they rarely have new wire to mend a fence, tobacco farmers in Manicaragua live better than many city dwellers. A horse takes them on errands, and a kitchen garden helps keep them well fed.”
Azerbaijan, 1999 Photograph by Reza “Mosques again flourish in Azerbaijan, a mostly Muslim country that saw all but 18 of its 2,000 mosques shut down under Soviet rule. Their traditions muted by years of official atheism, Azerbaijanis are gravitating toward a moderate practice of Islam—to the chagrin of Iran, which fears its people will look north with envy.”
Missouri Breaks, Montana, 1999 Photograph by William Albert Allard “Grainfields spill their color across the badlands of the Missouri Breaks, a lonesome swatch of eastern Montana where the Great Plains roll to an abrupt and wild end. The Missouri River and its tributaries have cut deep paths through underlying sandstone and shale, fracturing the open country. Rough and remote spaces rule the Breaks, perfect for folks who insist on carving their own way.”
Rome, Italy, 1970 Photograph by Winfield I. Parks, Jr “Memory-haunted arena of the ancients, Rome’s 1,900-year-old Colosseum saw bloody gladiatorial duels, battles with wild beasts, and mock naval engagements on its flooded floor. Christians banned the spectacles, and in later centuries presented church dramas here. Time, earthquakes, and stone scavengers took their toll. Still, the treasured monument survived and again serves Rome—as a traffic circle. Cars at evening rush hour create streaks of light in this time exposure, which also captures horse-drawn carriages waiting at curbside for tourists.”
New River Gorge, West Virginia, 1999 Photograph by Susie Post Rust “Spanning a West Virginia canyon 3,000 feet [914 meters] wide, the New River Gorge Bridge transformed 44,000 tons of steel and concrete into structural art as graceful as the morning mists drifting below it. Opened in 1977, it replaced an 1889 trestle—and 40 white-knuckled minutes on one-lane switchbacks—with 40 seconds on cruise control.”
Hawaii, 1999 Photograph by Flip Nicklin “Showing his ID as he floats head down in the singing position, Frank displays the unique pattern of tail markings by which individual humpback whales can be recognized
Angkor Thom, Cambodia, 1968 Photograph by Wilbur E. Garrett "Ghostlike faces surround two saffron-robed Buddhist monks in a window of the extravagantly carved Bayon, central temple of Angkor Thom. Here, in northwestern Cambodia, rise the splendid temples of the Khmer kings, ancient rulers of Southeast Asia. Not only does the architectural grandeur speak of a brilliant civilization; complex canals, reservoirs, and ponds—some still in use—reveal a remarkable system of irrigation, forerunner of the Mekong Project."
Bulgaria, 1978 Photograph by James L. Stanfield “A Bulgarian woman grieves for her youngest son, who was murdered shortly after he left their village to make his mark in the capital.”
Minnesota, 1907 Photograph by Roland W. Reed “A native of Wisconsin, Reed documented life among the Ojibwa at the turn of the century. He entitled this photograph ‘Enemy Wind.’”
Sanarate, Guatemala, 1976 Photograph by Robert W. Madden “Buffeted by crosswinds, a rescue plane crashes into a truck, while trying to land on a mountain highway near Sanarate. Miraculously no one suffered serious injury.”
Square Butte, Montana, 1986 Photograph by Sam Abell “Courted by an early moon, Square Butte unfolds in spacious grandeur 20 miles [32 kilometers] west of Great Falls. A backdrop in numerous Russell paintings, this mile-wide [1.6-kilometer-wide] tableland of rock can be seen from the town’s outskirts, and Charley sometimes rode out to view it for inspiration when he was ‘fighting a painting.’
Zhongwei, China, 1980 Photograph by Bruce Dale “‘We were overwhelmed,’ says author Rick Gore, when thousands turned out in Zhongwei to greet the first American visitors in at least thirty years. A sign reads ‘Proletarians of the world unite,’ but ideology is no longer a barrier to curiosity.”
