Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix@tooyoungtowed // Obstetric fistula survivor Kadiatu, 15, reacts to being able to walk safely and independently with the use of splints on her feet. She was participating in "Fistula Camp" at the Aberdeen Women's Center in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Obstetric fistula is one of the most devastating and serious childbirth injuries and is the result of extreme pressure and tissue damage during prolonged or obstructed labor. When the fetus cannot fit through the young mother’s pelvis due to her small stature stature, and if a Caesarean section delivery is not available to end the ordeal, the baby is usually stillborn and a fistula — or abnormal opening between the vagina and rectum or bladder — forms, resulting in severe incontinence. In many cases, like Kadiatu’s, girls can also experience peroneal nerve injury, resulting in leg weakness, foot drop and difficulty in walking. The women and girls who attended the camp underwent surgeries to repair their fistulas, treat their decreased mobility, and improve their self-esteem.

“The greatest artists, the most eternal artists, the ones that really have longevity, are the ones that were dedicated and devoted to their work and gave parts of themselves,” says Geoffrey Berliner, executive director of the nonprofit Penumbra Foundation (@penumbrafoundation). “Great art stems from great tension and great investigation and great suffrage and great living.” The New York City organization is on a mission to bring together the art and science of photography through programs and workshops for aspiring and veteran photographers, alike.
In the digital age of point, click, delete, repeat, he believes it’s more important than ever to preserve and explore archaic formats like tintype, one of the earliest (and most complicated) photo processes made popular in the 1860s, as a means to develop voice and creative literacy in the next generation’s great artists. Great art, Geoffrey believes, starts with story: “When you teach a kid comprehensive storytelling, that one kid can go forth and create work that can make a huge impact in the world.”

#Regram#RG@time: "Leonardo DiCaprio (@leonardodicaprio) stopped by the Yale Climate Conference in New Haven, appearing onstage for a discussion with former Secretary of State John Kerry about climate change. The actor, environmentalist and 'Before the Flood' producer drew a substantial crowd of 2,500, making pointed statements about the Trump administration's stance on and recalling his attempt to sway the then-President-Elect when he visited Trump Tower in December. "We should not have people in office who do not believe in facts and truths and modern science that are able to manipulate and risk the entire future of this entire generation," DiCaprio said. "We are at that turning point right now, and we are going to look back at this point in history, and frankly this administration, and certain people are going to be vilified for not taking action. They really are. And it's up to this generation, it's up to all of you to get involved and make a difference." Video source: Yale University"
