3 Wheels and 7 Horsepower in Mad Rickshaw Race Across India

3 Wheels and 7 Horsepower in Mad Rickshaw Race Across India

This spring, Italians Stefano Conz, Giovanni Testa, Davide Bozalla, and Vittorio Michelini—aka Team Rust and Dust—set out to cover more than 2,000 miles across India in rickshaws. Hosted by an organization called The Adventurists, The Rickshaw Run gave 69 teams the keys to two-cylinder, seven horsepower stallions to take on a free-form route across India through, as the event’s website put it, “whatever shit the road throws at you.” Getting lost, getting stuck, and breaking down are guaranteed. Here, Team Rust and Dust shares a few of their fondest moments. They came in last.

Deep Snow, Big Drops, and Stinky Cheese

Deep Snow, Big Drops, and Stinky Cheese

Mention Switzerland to any skier and their reaction is nearly universal. Their eyes widen as thoughts of huge vertical, fluffy powder, and quaint villages filled with fellow snow seekers enjoying après fill their collective imaginations. When the opportunity presented itself to tag along with a few stellar skiers to the Swiss Alps, I eagerly jumped on the team. Skiers Sven Brunso, John Trousdale, George Koch, and I travelled via rail to Adelboden, Andermatt, Disentis, and Engelberg. Deep snow, stinky cheese, new friends, cold beer, big climbs, and massive descents were never more than a walk, tram, or train away. Photographer Liam Doran shares some highlights of their trip.

Burma Uncovered: Amazing Shots From a Photographer's Paradise

After 5 years of work, 38 flights, and 10 separate visas to Burma, photographer David Heath released his first book late last year. Undeniably one of the most raw and photogenic places on earth, Heath brought an eye to the region that can only be explained by his hours logged behind the lens and devotion to this project. We caught up with Heath to hear his thoughts on some of his favorite images and get a preview into his 248-page book Burma: An Enchanted Spirit. 

Icebergs

Icebergs

In 1999, Camille Seaman gave up her seat on a one-hour flight from Oakland to L.A. and scored a round trip ticket anywhere in the world. She chose Alaska. Once there, she decided to walk from a coastal town named Kotzebue across the ice towards Russia. After feeling cold, lost, and somewhat panicked, she had a moment where she stopped, looked around, and felt a connection to the earth. That one moment ignited a passion for Arctic landscapes that she turned into a career photographing icebergs. Read or Listen to an Interview with Camille Seaman
