natgeo Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey). Sonam Dorji, a climbing Sherpa from Phortse working for IMG carries some of the last loads down from high camps on #Everest to base camp. The hard work of less celebrated climbers goes unnoticed in a world that celebrates every one of the summits made by Westerners who spend $50,000-$120,000 to climb the world's highest peak. It's climbers like Sonam who risk their lives to carry gear 20 or even 30 times through the deadly Khumbu Ice Fall to set up camps for wealthy clients. Read more about the risks Sherpas take and see their lives beyond the mountain in the current issue of @natgeo magazine. 10h

natgeo Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey). Mingma Sherpa walks by one of many monuments to climbers who died in the #Himalayas. The spot is on the hike to #EverestBaseCamp. I find myself thinking of those who died in the recent #Nepal avalanches and of the families they left behind. More images from my #Sherpa series can be found in the current issue of @natgeo magazine. 1d

natgeo Heading back to Africa for an assignment for @natgeo. The last trip I made was to #Tanzania on the southern tip of the salt lake #LakeNatron. That was a story about early human footprints & that is where I shot this photo of our #Masai guide & camp leader with his son. The next one is also a human #evolution story but I'm heading to #SouthAfrica. @robertclarkphoto @thephotosociety @instituteartist 1d

natgeo Image by @paulnicklen - Our patience was tested while #onassignment for @natgeo with @cristinamittermeier and @sea_legacy. Often we had to wait for weeks to catch a short glimpse of the elusive Rain Wolves of coastal British Columbia. Every now and again, however, we were rewarded by the piercing eyes of a wolf watching us. Wolves and humans have an ancient relationship, and love them or not, their presence is a powerful thing to behold. @oren.lawson, @aprilbencze #wolves #coastalwolves #greatbearrainforest #britishcolumbia #natureisspeaking 1d

  •   fanlabise @mad_nomad I am struck by the beauty that emerges from this picture even though it shows the horror of the human condition when hunger, disease, poverty attack our children. children of the earth are all our children, but we are powerless to love and protect them as they deserve. This grandfather is splendid in its dignity and child grinds my heart in 'filling a strong sense of guilt @mad_nomad 9h

natgeo Photo @renan_ozturk @camp4colective // Each day we travel further North, through the jungle villages of the Kachin region #onassignment for the #MyanmarClimb expedition. As there is no tourist or trekking infrastructure here, each night we end up in a different communal bamboo bunkhouse. We are also discovering that consequently, there is also a lack of porters to help us move our gear towards our objective on the China/Tibet border. Time for paring down. So far we have cut over half our camera and climbing gear, and are entering the fast and light mode. @thenorthface @hilareeoneill @emilyaharrington @md_jenkins @coryrichards @taylorfreesolo @sandisk #TheLongWayIn 2d

Although it's implied by your comment that this is related to Syrian Kurds and the ongoing crisis, I can't help but wonder who that little boy is and what his story is. It provides a sense of connection and dignity. Thank you for your work. Peace. 7h
