My attempt at explaining how babies are made to my 6 year old, Lukas. #motherhood #isthisageapppropriate? @pauldebendern

Several weeks ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was the same week her mother, Nonnie, turned 105 years old. Our family has been fortunate to be spared untimely deaths and health problems:
We rarely face illness, and no one ever seems to die before well into her nineties. My mom’s diagnosis floored me. I’ve spent years ushering people through cancer and maternal complications, war, and it’s toll with my camera, but my family has been my foundation of strength. On mother’s day, I pay tribute to my mother, @roundball_ , who has been so strong and positive throughout this time, through the exams, the prodding and needles, and a gruelling four-hour surgery last week. She has never wavered, and never doubted her ability to survive. I love you, mom. You’re not going anywhere yet. #mothersday #rolemodel @bakeycakes @laurenaddario @lezdez

Color proofing a section on Life Under the Taliban for “Of Love and War,” my first book of photography due out October 23, 2018 by @penguinpress. #photojournalism #penguinpress

Lindsay Tukes, 25, whose Muslim name is Amiraldeen Alghazali, rides home from her class on the Quran in Hamtramck, Michigan. Hamtramck, a city surrounded by Detroit, became the first city in the United States with a Muslim-majority population. Muslims are also a majority on the city council. The city once attracted immigrants from Poland and eastern Europe. Today large populations of immigrants are from Bangladesh, Iraq, Yemen, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and African countries.

Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, who founded MuslimGirl.com as a high school senior, shoots a sizzle reel that she plans to use to pitch ideas for a TV show or web series. In 2017 the website, which says it’s “raising the place of Muslim women in mainstream society,” launched Muslim Women’s Day, celebrated on March 27. This year’s theme was “Muslim women talk back to violence.” This photo is part of my latest work in @natgeo online, and out in May Issue.

Caption: At an evening meal, Muslims from Chicago’s South Side break their Ramadan fast. Inner-City Muslim Action Network, a community organization formed two decades ago, sponsored the event. Rami Nashashibi, the organization’s founder, started it to promote social change, the arts, and healthy living in the city’s poorer neighborhoods. #nationalgeographic #photojournalism

Happy 105, Nonnie!!! (Yes, this is the same woman who went viral losing her teeth on her 102nd birthday.) Turn up the volume to listen to this post: on being 104. You inspire us every single day.
