Scenes From the 2020 Tour de France (34 photos)

The 107th Tour de France cycling race—delayed more than two months due to the coronavirus pandemic—began in Nice on August 29, as 22 teams of riders started their journey through central and southern France in 20 stages. The entire tour covers a distance of 3,484 km and will conclude in Paris on September 20. Gathered here are images from the first 17 stages of the 2020 Tour de France.

Life in the Wake of COVID-19 (22 photos)

In April, José Collantes contracted the new coronavirus and quarantined himself in a hotel set up by the government in Santiago, Chile, away from his wife and young daughter. The 36-year-old Peruvian migrant showed only mild symptoms, and returned home in May, only to discover his wife, Silvia Cano, had also fallen ill. Silvia’s condition worsened quickly, and she was taken to a nearby hospital with pneumonia. Although they spoke on the phone, José and their 5-year-old daughter Kehity never saw Silvia again—she passed away in June, at the age of 37, due to complications from COVID-19. José found that he’d suddenly become a single parent, and felt haunted by questions about why Silvia had died and he survived. “Daddy, daddy, why did mommy die?” Kehity asked him. “Because she was sick,” he answered, not knowing what to say but feeling he had to respond. Silvia was one of an estimated 12,000 people who have died due to COVID-19 in Chile alone, and just one out of some 930,000 deaths recorded so far worldwide. In the three months that have passed, José has allowed journalists from the Associated Press to visit his family and document their difficult personal journey after the loss of their wife and mother. “I don’t want to give up,” he said.

Photos: Oregon Communities Devastated by Wildfires (33 photos)

More than 30 wildfires are currently burning in the state of Oregon, mostly along its Cascade Mountain range in the west. Over the past week, dry weather and strong winds drove the flames into several towns and neighborhoods, leaving some communities utterly destroyed. Thick smoke still hangs in the air across large sections of the state, creating hazardous air quality conditions. Gathered here are images of the damage from the past few days, seen in the cities of Molalla, Talent, Detroit, Ashland, Estacada, and more.

Washington: Images of the Evergreen State (34 photos)

Washington State is home to more than 7.6 million residents, most living on the western side of the Cascade Mountains. I originally published these photos of Washington last year, dedicating them to my mother and father, who loved their home state, and who had passed away the month before. The warm reactions to that photo story were what inspired me to undertake this larger project, “Fifty,” presenting wide-ranging collections of images of each state in the U.S. I’m happy to now add this collection to the project, and hope you enjoy these glimpses of the landscape of Washington and some of the wildlife and people calling it home.

This photo story is part of “Fifty,” a collection of images from each state of the United States.

An earlier version of this photo essay misidentified the location of one of the photos. The caption has been corrected.

Photos: Wildfires Rage Across the American West (35 photos)

An unprecedented outbreak of wind-driven wildfires has erupted across parts of California, Oregon, and Washington in recent days, generating enormous clouds of thick smoke that have blanketed much of the Pacific Coast, affecting visibility and air quality. California’s wildfires this year have burned more than 2 million acres, setting a new record, according to the state’s fire department. Gathered below are images from the past few days of some of the dozens of fires currently active, as well as those battling against and affected by them.

Scenes From China’s Guizhou Province (28 photos)

The mountainous Guizhou province, in southwestern China, is home to more than 34 million people. The steep terrain is challenging to work, and has led to the development of thousands of terraced hillsides over centuries of farming and building. From remote hilltop Buddhist monasteries to ancient villages to the skyline of the capital city, Guiyang, gathered here are a few glimpses of Guizhou and its residents.

Photos: The Aftermath of Hurricane Laura (24 photos)

Overnight, Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 storm, slamming into parts of Louisiana and Texas with 150 mph winds and a powerful storm surge. While the impact so far does not appear to have been as bad as anticipated, the damage is still severe and widespread, especially in the Lake Charles area. Below are some of the early photographs from the hard-hit Gulf Coast, the day after Laura passed through.

Photos: China’s Summer of Floods (26 photos)

Throughout the summer, unusually heavy rainfall has caused a series of devastating floods across parts of central and southwestern China. Tens of thousands of residents have been forced from their homes, hundreds have been killed, and authorities now warn that the Three Gorges Dam is facing the largest flood peak in its history. Gathered here are images of the high water and some of the damage it has caused over the past few months.

Anger and Protest Over a Presidential Election in Belarus (26 photos)

In the last week and a half, thousands of protesters have filled the streets of Minsk and other cities in Belarus, voicing their anger over the widely disputed results of a presidential election. President Alexander Lukashenko, the authoritarian ruler of Belarus for the past 26 years, was declared the winner with 80 percent of the vote, giving him a sixth term in office. The main opposition candidate, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, fled to Lithuania shortly after the election, as protesters on the street were beaten by riot police and arrested by the thousands. In the following days, crowds attended some of the largest protests in the country’s history, with people demanding the resignation of Lukashenko, the release of political prisoners, and an end to police brutality. A number of groups of workers have staged strikes in support of the protests as well, building some momentum. President Lukashenko has not ceded any ground, and government prosecutors have now opened criminal cases against opposition leaders.

Dozens of Wildfires Burn Across California (24 photos)

Multiple major wildfires are currently burning out of control in the state of California, and the resources needed to contain the fires are being stretched thin. Many of the blazes, driven by high winds amid hot and dry conditions, are believed to have been started by lightning. Thousands of residents have been ordered to evacuate, as heavy smoke blankets the San Francisco Bay Area. Gathered here are images from the past few days of some of these fires, as they burn across hillsides and through neighborhoods.

The Lonely Work of Performing Funerals in Lima, Peru (13 photos)

Ronald Marin, age 30, left his home in Venezuela in 2018. He moved to Peru for health reasons. Formerly a teacher, he found work at a Catholic church and was soon asked to help comfort mourning families nearby. Marin later took vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, becoming a lay worker for his church. As the current pandemic grew, Catholic churches in Peru began closing their doors and restricting services to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Some of the devout, like Marin, continued to work with members of the community, administering funerals, comforting families, praying with the sick, and more. Rodrigo Abd, a photojournalist with the Associated Press, recently spent time with Marin in and around Lima, as he worked alone, supporting others, in a country hard-hit by COVID-19.
