When photographer James Pomerantz turned 40 in January of this year, he took a moment to reflect on success and what it meant. As the father of two young children, he recognized the importance of financial security, but understood that being a successful artist went deeper than this. It required him to be “true to my ideas, able to do it, and keep doing it. If I didn’t have to worry about the finance, I’d have the freedom to just create.”

They are on the move across the United States, and sometimes the world, catching rides wherever they can, by freight train or by car, living by their own set of rules. They are known as Travelers, people who call the open road their home, guided by wanderlust. Boston photographer Michael Joseph has devoted nearly six years of his life to documenting Travelers through intimate portraiture.

Mr. Canary was initially incarcerated for assault with a deadly weapon, then transferred from solitary confinement at New Folsom prison to the SHU at Pelican Bay. Mr. Canary had been in this particular solitary confinement cell for one year while awaiting “gang associate validation” (the process by which the prison investigates whether or not an inmate is a member of a prison gang). The heavy scarring on Mr. Canary’s stomach is from a gunshot wound. © Brian Frank

It is often said that today photojournalism as an industry is in a state of crisis; photojournalists are overworked, underpaid and major media companies are hiring fewer staff photographers. Those we spoke to from the Nikon-NOOR Academy based in Amsterdam during the World Press Photo Festival 2017 aren’t so sure.

As a child, Corey Arnold traveled the open seas in his imagination. He’s fished since he was in diapers, first as a hobbyist with his father and later as a commercial fisherman. He took his first deckhand job in 1995, and he’s since spent hundreds of days and nights catching sockeye salmon, halibut, codfish, and king crab, navigating howling winds and violent waves.

Poignant Photos of Animals Rescued From Abuse

In the summer of 2012, a heavily pregnant pig at a factory farm was beaten with an electric prod and a metal pole because she wouldn’t move from her crate. The sow screamed through the ordeal. When it was caught on audio tape, the SPCA and Farm Sanctuary’s Emergency Rescue Team were able to remove her from the farm. When the pig finally entered the safety of the rescue trailer, she collapsed in exhaustion and was immediately brought to a veterinarian at Cornell. This was the start of her new life.

In 2013, photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur accompanied activists from Animal Liberation Victoria as they entered a pig farm in the dead of night. Inside the farm’s “sick bay,” they found about thirty ill and injured animals. Some had a green “X” spray-painted on their backs, meaning they were too ill to be of use to the farm and would be killed soon. That night, the activists picked out three of the doomed piglets and carried them out into the open air.

In 2013, photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur was with the SPCA when they seized approximately 100 dogs from a puppy mill in rural Quebec. After a lifetime of living in confinement, about half a dozen pit bull-type were finally led into the open air. Their tails, once firmly tucked between their legs, started to relax. The rescuers spoke softly and offered their hands for the animals to sniff. Little by little, the wagging began.
