"A refugee was washing his hands in the morning inside an abandoned building in #Belgrade, near a bonfire used to boil water. The place is filled with smoke, full of trash and rats big as cats. The #humanitarian situation is monitored by local and foreign NGO, with an increasing record of wounded #refugees." - @pierrecrom | February 23, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews
"The day started out very early. I was at #StandingRock camp at sunrise and was struck immediately by the #flames glowing in the darkness. It was eerie walking through a campsite I had seen bustling with life now reduced to debris and a handful of people milling around. The ground was muddy and ashes mixed in with rain and snow from the sky. The large fire you see in the picture was from a hogan and people gathered around it to watch it burn. It felt ritualistic and solemn, but also empowering for the people as if they were taking ownership of the camp's destruction. The scene was quiet and fires soon erupted in other structures around camp." - @thewestisblue | Febuary 22, 2017 | #GettyImagesNews
"I was shooting Eva Yerbabuena on stage and as her #Flamenco performance was reaching a crescendo, I took a gamble and traded a little shutter speed in exchange for half a chance at capturing a reasonable suggestion of movement. I have shot this kind of thing before, so I knew there was a strong possibility of some wanton shawl flinging happening. With this in mind, I settled on a 50th second speed hoping and I think I got a reasonable mix of static and motion #blur as she whirled around in this shot." - @iangav | February 16, 2017 | #GettyEntertainment
