To find pictures, I just try to stay attentive to my curiosity... One of the great things about being a photographer is that it gives you an excuse to investigate things that you are curious about.

Nepal's Maoists
Nepal Maoists
by Jonas Bendiksen

In 2005, I went to Nepal to try to photograph Nepal's Maoist rebels. Lodged in their mountain safe areas, they had already fought a decadelong insurgency against the Kathmandu-based establishment. What started out as a poorly armed, ragtag rebel movement had by that time fought the Nepali army and armed police forces to a bloody stalemate. More than 10,000 lives had been lost, the human rights of thousands violated, but at that time no end seemed in sight—neither the more than 200-year-old Hindu monarchy nor the democratic party establishment could quash the rebel movement, and the Maoist insurgents couldn't militarily take over Kathmandu.

<i>Sabine</i>
Sabine
by Jacob Aue Sobol
In 1999, photographer Jacob Aue Sobol went to the settlement of Tiniteqilaaq, Greenland, where he lived the life of a fisherman and hunter and fell in love with a girl named Sabine. Compiled over three years, the photographs and narratives in his book create an intensely intimate record of his encounter with Sabine and life on the east coast of Greenland.
