In
your youth, nothing can stop you from enjoying time with your friends,

time on the dock with your friends during a surprise shower.

Centuries
ago, Inuit hunted the Bowhead whale. At that time, whale hunting
undoubtedly was part of a complex and very important ritual, if only
because of the size of the catch. The position that the ancestors of
today’s Inuit occupied in the living world involved a relationship with
the spirit that inhabited each animal but also their species.

Sylvinite
mines are one of the most beautiful places of work I know. The miners
work so hard that they do not see the beauty of the place they work at.
Dust and darkness and the beam of the torch are the only things they
know. I wanted to show their hard job and stunning underground palace.

The
Tower of David is a skyscraper built in downtown Caracas, 195 meters

families.

Emmy,
who has Down’s syndrome, is five years old. With her parents Martin and
Karina and her younger brother Kristian, she lives in the countryside
close to Aarhus, in the middle of Denmark. For half a year she has been
attending the local kindergarten now. Her parents had to fight with the
municipality to find the right spot for Emmy. They realized that
inclusion seems not to be the most normal thing in Denmark. Their
daughter has been doing great in the new kindergarten. Her ability to
speak and social behavior towards other kids improved.
