Day After Day: Instagrams from Different Countries and Continents

Bird In Flight gathered six blogs that all take part in the Everyday movement, where you can find scenes from life in a country or even an entire continent. appear each day.

The Everyday movement started in the beginning of 2012 with a blog about Africa that was launched by documentary photographer Peter DiCampro and writer Austin Merrill. They wanted to break the stereotypes of dire poverty and incessant warfare that the media continue to attach to the African continent. Having enlisted the support of other photographers, DiCampro and Merrill created their account on Instagram. Since then, people from other countries decided to create their own blogs about other countries, continents and parts of the world: the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Iran, Russia, Sri Lanka, Egypt and Jamaica.

Later on, DiCampro brought together photos from different Everyday blogs for an exhibition at the Photoville festival in New York. There are tons of these kinds of projects now. Bird In Flight chose six of the most interesting ones.



I am looking at Sergey. The steam is coming from him. Sergey goes to the steam house every weekend. Sometimes he goes there with friends but mostly alone. "It's quieter and I am able to think about what has happened during the week, settle my mind, my inner world is in peace and quiet, so to say. My wife makes me mint tea with honey in the thermos flask. I always buy a firry sauna whisk for steaming". Kostroma. Я смотрю на Сергея. От него идет пар. Сергей ходит в баню каждый выходной. Иногда с друзьями, но больше любит один. "Так спокойнее и можно подумать о том, что случилось за неделю и привести свои мысли в порядок, отдохнуть душой, так сказать. Жена заваривает мне в термосе мятный чай с медом. Я всегда покупаю пихтовый веник для парения". Кострома. Photo by Ira Emets. @iraemets #everydayrussia #russia #sauna #kostroma

The Philippines

Inside evacuation centers, you can immediately sense fear. But at the same time, you can hear the children's laughter. Here, a ball game, right before the setting sun. Many of these children have experienced many evacuations during their young life, and probably expects more. Being a Bakwit, a local term for IDPs, has become part of the lives of most of the residents in this part of Mindanao. Perpetually on the run, but perpetually hoping for peace. My last post for day 3 of my @everydayphilippines takeover. I will be posting for the page for 5 days as I continue to work on my long term personal documentary project here in Mindanao.

Still on my second day contributing to @everydayphilippines feed. Early morning in Datu Salibo, Maguindanao. The road leading to the national highway was always usually busy but this time it was not. The road was clear aside from two armored tanks and chickens crossing here and there, but that didn't interest me. Near an army detachment was a makeshift evacuation center and learned that the whole village of Tee, all 375 families are taking refuge there. "The first thing we heard was a loud blast coming from a bazooka" said Haula Malwa. She is 9 and this is her third time to evacuate from their village. In this picture, she was among others who desperately waits for relief assistance from anybody. But so far, very few had come and give. The estimated number of Internally Displaced Persons have already risen past a hundred thousand according to a recent report as conflict between government forces and the rebel group BIFF continues. The conflict in Mindanao, that has risen from many and complex reasons has been happening for more than forty years now.

2nd day of my @everydayphilippines takeover. On my way to Datu Piang, There was a huge crowd at the plaza of Sultan Kudarat town. There were lots of vendors and hawkers selling their colorful wares. As I found out, it was a day where residents line up to get conditional cash transfers or CCTs provided by the government. And it was a perfect day for hawkers to sell their goods, from fabrics to kitchen wares to cellphones. Sales was good said a vendor, but only when events like this happens. With a staggering 62 percent poverty incidence or with five in every six resident living under less than a dollar a day, Maguindanao is at the top of the poorest place in the Philippines. But cash assistance has been widely criticized by Filipinos, saying that it was just another form of corruption by government officials– a band aid move without really addressing the real causes of poverty in the Philippines.
