“Last Prom”

Photo by Zackary Canepari / VII.

“Prom in Flint is more than just a dance. It’s a celebration of triumph and survival—and this year was Northwestern High School’s grand finale.”

Featuring portraits by Zackary Canepari and video by Jessica Dimmock and Zackary Canepari, this story on National Geographic takes us inside the last prom at the Flint, Michigan high school before the school shuts down.

Flying Over the Line

In Tomas Van Houtryve’s latest project, featured today on TIME, he uses his drone to capture life along the U.S. – Mexico border, the world’s busiest international crossing.

Tomas says, “Historically, photography was about portraiture, fine art, journalism or just recording memories of family and friends. On the border, however, cameras are used for targeting and apprehension. The photographic medium has been weaponized…”

“The Children of Bad Memories”

Photo by Nichole Sobecki / VII

On a recent assignment for The Sunday Times Magazine, Nichole Sobecki photographed Rwanda’s lost generation, children whose Tutsi mothers were raped by Hutu militia.

In those bloody 100 days between April and July 1994, ten percent of Rwanda’s population was killed and at least 250,000 women were raped. Of those who became pregnant, many aborted their babies or even killed them at birth, but the Survivors Fund — a British charity working in Rwanda — believes there are about 20,000 children of rape alive today. In Rwanda they are known as ‘les enfants mauvais souvenirs’, the children of bad memories. People blame them when the rains don’t come or when rivers flood, and they have grown up knowing that, for their mothers, they are reminders of the worst day in their lives. Now in their early 20s, this group of young adults are trying to find their way in the world, but it is not easy.
