There’s an unlikely yet important starting point from which to understand the Martin Luther King Jr. story. Traditionally, his story is told via the events of Montgomery, Alabama in 1956, where Rosa Parks refused to yield her seat to a white patron on a bus – an act that led to a large-scale demonstration against segregation, which thrust Dr. King into the spotlight. Another often chosen starting point is the Harlem book signing in 1958, when a well-dressed 42-yearold woman stabbed the reverend in the chest with a letter opener. But a more obscure moment that emboldened the lauded civil rights activist begins in Ghana – not exactly an obvious choice when considering the shaping of this American icon. In 1957, a year after that famous bus boycott, Dr. King – an advocate for social justice, equality and dialogue – travelled to the African nation to witness its independence celebrations. He was invited there by its newly elected prime minister Kwame Nkrumah. Ghana had just become a Republic under Nkrumah’s guidance, and in the process became the first nation to gain independence from European colonialism.

Jacob Wallwork, who was born in Perth, Australia, had long dreamed of taking his camera, and using it to photograph people and places along the Trans-Mongolian Railway route from Beijing to St. Petersburg. But a trip of this magnitude takes significant planning; not only did Wallwork have to apply for three separate visas—to China, Mongolia and Russia—but he also had to save up money to personally fund the expedition. In the summer of 2017, with everything finally in place, he set off on a two-month expedition that covered 4,660 miles of track on ten different trains. He returned with a portfolio of images that show a diverse world at times flush with bodies, and at other times gorgeously sparse. The rhythm of scenery changing through a train window is apparent in his photographs.

For photographer Alessio Cabras, “Eucalyptus” is a metaphorical title for the subject of his ongoing project about the militarization of the Italian region of Sardinia. He explains that the eucalyptus tree shares a similar cultural story to his native Sardinia as the country’s military. “The eucalyptus was imported for its reclamation properties over a swamp without considering the fact that, with its huge roots, it has a tendency to colonize the environment, obstructing the development of the local flora,” he says. “The [military] bases too were brought with the deception of big ‘wealth promises’ without the common sense of thinking for the local communities.”
