Photo by @GerdLudwig, published in National Geographic Magazine's "The Nuclear Tourist." In 1986 reactor #4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant blew up. The radioactive fallout spread over thousands of square kilometers, driving more than a quarter of a million people permanently from their homes. Trips to the Chernobyl exclusion zone were legalized by the Ukrainian government in 2011. Chernobyl has since become a disaster-tourism destination. The most riveting attraction for visitors is the ghost town of Pripyat: dolls are scattered in abandoned kindergartens, floors are rotting and paint is peeling from the walls. Three decades after the accident created chaos of apocalyptic magnitude, tourists and tour guides are creating a bewildering disturbance, posing dolls (and sometimes gas masks) in unsettling scenes. This photograph is part of my upcoming exhibition at Visa Pour l'Image in Perpignan, opening August 29. Photojournalists, and photo enthusiasts gather annually in southern France for the world's premier international festival for photojournalism to view work from around the world in exhibitions across the city and dramatic evening open-air screenings. To see more and learn about the Chernobyl accident, my iPad app, "The Long Shadow of Chernobyl," was recently updated for iOS8: @thephotosociety @theimagereview @natgeocreative #Chernobyl #Pripyat #Ukraine #abandoned #doll #toy #nuclear #disaster #fallout #tourism #TheLongShadowofChernobyl #catastrophe #VisaPourlImage #Perpignan

On a recent trip into #Patagonia section of Argentina I had to stop and fix a flat tire...the sunset and the sliver of the moon were the backdrop for the repair. @robertclarkphoto @thephotosociety

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety Through the 1950s, a million people might squeeze onto New York City's Coney Island Beach on a hot summer day and newspapers would send photographers to Coney Island on the 4th of July to capture the festive scene—in some pictures, you can’t see the sand for the people. Today, relaxed sunbathers have more room to stretch out. #airconditioning To see more views of NYC in summer visit @newyorkairbook

Photo by @stefanounterthiner | Brown bear cubs are play fighting in the Finnish taiga. The easter part of Finland (near the Russian border) is the best area to spot a bear in the wild. Despite a population of about 1000-1200 bears, and a rich "bear-waching" business, every year about 100 bears are legally hunted in #Finland. Please, follow @stefanounterthiner for more wildlife images. @natgeo @thephotosociety #bear #wild #nature #cubs

Photo @ladzinski / A classic Colorado alpine scene of wild flowers and cascades in #YankeeBoyBasin in the #UncompahgreMountains located in the San Juan Range. The San Juan's are the most extensive mountain range in Colorado, an easy place to find beauty and isolation in the fleeting summer season. @natgeocreative

Photo by @petekmuller/@prime_collective. My friend climbs with porters along the slopes of Mt #Nyiragongo in eastern DR #Congo. For years, I've looked up in awe at this #volcano that towers on the horizon of #Goma, the main city in North Kivu province. In its shadow, I covered the war against #M23 rebels, which largely played out of fields of hardened lava below. In the coming days, I'll share pictures and dispatches from my journey to the top of #Africa's most active #volcano. #DRC #RDC #adventure #mountains #hiking #virunga #virunganationalpark

Image by @beverlyjoubert. There are few sights as breathtaking as a lion in his prime. The epitome of strength and an icon of Africa. However lion numbers have dropped to worrying levels with a 95% loss in the past 60 years. Lions need our help and we want you to give them a high five for World Lion Day on August 10. Share your #5ForBigCats images and if you can, donate $5 to National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative The world has shown how much we all care about the fate of big cats this past week. We can really make a positive change. #lions #bigcats #causeanuproar #5forBigCats

Photo by @chien_chi_chang / @magnumphotos I took some frames overlooking the airport while boarding Air Koryo at Pyongyang Sunan Airport. After that, I realized it was peripheral vision meeting the peripheral visions of the shadows on both sides. I was sweating until the plane finally took off. Phew!! The takeoff reminded me of that in the movie ARGO. #jetlag #Pyongyang #Sunan #NorthKorea #guard #airplane #airport

inaginationcrisis : North Korea not allowed to take pics he's worried he might get arrested. It's a good pic with good text.

Photograph by @thomaspeschak Humpback whales bubble-net feed on a school of herring. The whales release a circular curtain of bubble beneath the fish which traps and pushes them upwards. The whales follow the fish and breach the surface with open mouths. The humpback whale population in the the seas off Canada's Great Bear Rainforest is unique in that they also sing at their feeding grounds. #cetacealab #whales #herring #canada #greatbear @pacificwild @saveourseasfoundation @natgeocreative - For more images of these unique whales please follow me @thomaspeschak
