Big Colors, Big Business ⁠ _⁠ ⁠ An aerial view of carpets drying in a field in Dosemealti, Turkey. Before they are sent to stores, the handmade carpets, flat woven kilims and embroidered rugs from all over Turkey are sent to the Dosemealti district in the Southern province of Antalya. The carpets are laid out in the sun and are turned regularly to soften the colors and give them an antique look. Turkey's carpet industry employs more than 40,000 people with exports worth more than $10 billion. | August 20, 2019 | 📷: @burakkara_instagram | #GettyImagesNews ⁠ _⁠ Click the link in our bio for more colorful carpets!⁠

"Poets, prophets and reformers are all picture makers—and this ability is the secret of their power and of their achievement."⁠ 19th century abolitionist and orator Frederick Douglass, who understood that photography would become the dominant language of our times. Those who wielded the camera or exercised control over their own image, would be the writers of history.⁠ A medium that has always aspired to the democratic, today photography is in the hands of more people than ever before.⁠ To mark #WorldPhotographyDay, our Story explores the images that cut through the visual noise. ⁠ 📷: South African singers Albert Jonas and John Xiniwe, of The African Choir, in a staged photographic portrait session, 1891.

A Russian soldier in Kabul, Afghanistan, 1989. John Downing has that rare talent of producing immediate images that also withstand an engaged reading. Chief photographer at the Daily Express, this was photojournalism that demanded the story told in a single, front page frame; the best of those pictures only grow in meaning through the years. A forthcoming book celebrates Downing's work and career, which spans five decades and 100 countries across all seven continents. 'Legacy' brings together nuanced portraits of cultural, political and royal icons, eyewitness accounts from the conflicts and disasters of our time, and images that lend a visual voice to the poor and dispossessed. Today's Story @gettyarchive takes a closer look at the unbeatable reportage of John Downing, with ‘Legacy’ available to pre-order via the project’s Kickstarter page. 📷: John Downing/Getty Images #johndowning #photojournalism #legacy #reportage #pressphoto #photobook #conflictphotography #warphotographer #socialdocumentary #sovietafghanwar #1989 #masterofphotography #fleetstreet #pressphotographer #historyphoto #historyinphotos #archivephoto #photoarchive #gettyimages

"I always go back to how people behave. If you watch how people actually behave in a situation, it's very simple and honest and contained. You don't need to use as much expression, as much feeling. Some characters will boil over, and that's another thing, but a lot of times I think you can just do very, very little."⁠ An acting masterclass from Robert De Niro, who celebrates his 76th birthday today.⁠ 📷: Robert De Niro in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, circa 1981 | Frederico Mendes/IMAGES/Getty Images | @gettyarchive ⁠ ⁠ #rob#rtdeniro #thegodfather #bot#botd #taxidriver #goodfellas #thedeerhunter #meanstreets # #ragingbull #themethod #methodacting #hollywoodicon #thekingofcomedy #youtalkintome #screenlegend #screenicon #cinemahistory #thenewhollywood #riodejaneiro #hollywoodhistory #archivephoto #photoarchive #botd #nostalgia #vintagephoto #photolibrary #gettyarchive

When a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso earlier this month in a mass shooting that left 22 people dead, Antonio Basco lost his only living relative — his wife Margie Reckard. Having no family in the area, Basco invited the El Paso community to attend Reckard's memorial service in a Facebook post published by Perches Funeral Home that went viral. On Friday night, hundreds of well wishers waited in line for hours outside the La Paz Faith Memorial and Spiritual Center to attend the public service, ensuring that Basco would not have to say goodbye to his wife alone. | August 16, 2019 | 📷: @sandy_huffaker | #GettyImagesNews #ElPaso #Texas #ElPasoStrong #AntonioBasco
