Nov. 5, 1922: Lulu McGrath is greeted by a diver in “Wonders of the Sea,” filmed off the Bahamas during the early days of underwater motion pictures. A report the following spring on a project by J.E. Williamson, the film’s director, related the perils of camera work at the time: “Not so very long ago, an intrepid photographer, when attempting to get a picture from an airplane of the crater of Vesuvius, just saved himself from falling into the seething, angry lava. This same cameraman, who is employed by Fox News, had another narrow escape from death in an airplane a few weeks ago. But he is inoculated with the spirit of adventure and keeps going.” Photo: The New York Times
Tippi Degré, the girl who spent her childhood in the African jungle

Se está vivo quem te viu,
Toda tua história é mentira,

and if he has died, he cannot tell what he saw.
GAIA (by Guy Laliberté)
In 2009, the founder and CEO of the Cirque du Soleil empire, Guy Laliberté, became the seventh private citizen to travel into space. After recording more than 10,000 images of Earth from above, he returned to create GAIA, a creative project bearing witness to the beauty and fragility of Earth with regard to the universe. GAIA documents dried-up Algerian riverbeds, melting Tibetan glaciers, and the Euphrates River, which has transformed rapidly since damming began in the 1960s.
