A photographer chronicles the relationship between masters and servants in South Asia —> http://voc.tv/JDMA94

Over the past few weeks, relations between India and the United States have been strained over the arrest of Devyani Khobragade, 39, an Indian diplomat in Manhattan who allegedly paid her housekeeper less than the New York minimum wage.

A great deal has been written about the appalling treatment of domestic help in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh (and how attitudes are slowly changing). But one of the most refreshingly original takes is a photo essay called Close Distance by Jannatul Mawa, a documentary photographer and social activist in Bangladesh. Mawa got more than a dozen housekeepers in Dhaka and the women they work for to pose for her sitting side by side. The goal: Show the distance between two people who often live under the same roof.

In an interview with Vocativ, Mawa spoke about the Indian diplomat in Manhattan and what it means to be spatially close but far apart in every other way.

Godspeed by Katrien Vermeire

Using photography’s fundamental ingredients of light and time, Katrien Vermeire allows the medium to make visible what would otherwise be invisible and catches the beauty of a special natural phenomenon. Bright yellow stripes represent the paths taken by fireflies during extended exposure. Katrien worked on her new series Godspeed in Tennessee in June 2010

Summer might be unofficially over, but this project shows there are still photos to be taken on hot (summer) nights. -Emily

Before spending time in Burkina Faso in western Africa, photographer David Pace had his own preconceptions:

"There’s really nothing there," he says he thought. "It’s like the worst tourist destination ever."

And, of course he adds, “all of my original conceptions were totally wrong.”

Maybe true that Burkina Faso isn’t a tourist destination, but that’s exactly why Pace ended up loving it — because “as photographer,” he says, “it’s incredible.”

Several years back, the California-based photographer was invited by some colleagues who run a non-profit there, who wanted him to photograph the organization. He went back twice the next year. And after three years, he and those colleagues started a study abroad program for the students of Santa Clara University, for which he now teaches photography in Burkina Faso.

Each visit, his eye is drawn to different themes and motifs, which helps to visually structure the place to outsiders like him.
