“In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at you...you're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.”
Musician, actor and storyteller - Tom Waits turns 70, strong and strange, today.

Protests in Chile have reached its 50th day, triggered by demonstrations against subway fare increase which turned into civil unrest and awakened a fight against social inequality. Our photographers Marcelo Hernández and Claudio Santana share their experience covering the events. ⁠ “It’s something new because it’s taking place in your own home, the personal cost is high, we are all in the same situation, which makes it more intense”, says Claudio. ⁠
“As a photographer it is difficult, but it’s also a commitment to society and a great responsibility to tell the truth. To be able to tell the story first-hand is a great challenge”, Marcelo adds.⁠
“We are privileged witnesses, we have the advantage and duty to show what is going on in the streets: human rights abuses, violence, but also citizens’ hope for a better outcome. This situation has brought us closer to leave individualism behind and become a more human society”, states Claudio. | Comments by Marcelo Hernandez and @claudiosantanaphoto| 📷: @marcelo.hernandezfoto | October 28, 2019 | #GettyImagesNews #YearInFocus #YearInFocus2019 #chiledespierta ⠀⁠
