Nike have partnered with R/GA to help promote a campaign called “GETOUTHERE” with a very special nocturnal Nike Run Club Event on October 25th. At 1am, exactly as the clocks went back for winter, over 100 runners ran a 10km loop around the Thames armed with LED Xylobands.
This shot from the roof of the Tate Modern took plenty of planning, a technical test and location recce the week before. We had a single chance to capture the runners on the evening as they passed through the frame. The final image, assembled from 50 shots by The Forge, is a composite from 2 cameras running different exposure patterns and a third that was cropped tight to the bridge for extra detail in the LEDS.
Families pan sediment for gold in the Namorona River close to Ramonofana National Park. The sediment is mined in his village close to the river-side. In 2011 the price of Gold peaked at E1379.09 per oz and in the same year 50 hectares of primary forest were destroyed by mining. The sediment in the river water causes further damage downstream.
