Johnny Aralaji, the leader of a Badjao community in Puerto Princesa, Philippines, scans the sea for almost nonexistent schools of fish. Because the Badjao, a waterborne, mostly Muslim people known as “Bedouins of the sea,” do not celebrate birthdays, Aralaji guesses his age to be around 70. He sees the culture and traditions of his people sinking but remains unsentimental and resolute because he knows that they must seek land-based alternatives in order to simply survive. Palawan, Philippines, July 15, 2009.

Upstate Girls: What Became of Collar City

Though Troy, N.Y., is still 80 percent white, black and Hispanic men moving into town from New York City have made working-class Troy a melting pot. Since the time of the Montagues and Capulets, romantic love can break old prejudices, and on a practical level many women see these street-wise young men as cash cows via the street drug trade–with the ability to make big, fast money that hometown boys working at the Walmart or local auto mechanic's labor for hours to earn.
