With the exception of two images, all 20,000 photographs were shot in Ontario, Canada. But they illustrate a global problem.
With a haunting original score by Randy Risling and evocative quotes, Airsick plays out like an unsettling dream.
“We’re addicted to fossil fuels and our infrastructure reflects that,” says Oleniuk. “My hope is that one day this film will be seen as the way we used to do things.”

Here’s another craze that is sure to go viral, hopefully for one Summer only. The idea is to strike a pose in mid-air as you jump into a pool. It can make for some funny pictures. However, do be careful and ensure the pool is full and you’re doing it in the diving zone.

If you get a chance, read The Blue Notebook. It’s not a happy story and not for children, but it reveals a not-too-hidden world that still exists in our modern society. It’s an unpleasant world, one we’d rather relegate to the dusty streets of a developing country. Truth is, child brides, child prostitution and child abuse exist in all societies, including our own. Sadly, it’s happening right now somewhere in the world even as you read these lines.

Photographer Jack Radcliffe shares an intimate glimpse of his daughter Alison through the lens of his camera.
The significance of these pictures emerges in retrospect. I realize as I look at them, that I created a visual life story of Alison, capturing moments in her metamorphosis from infant to woman-her relationships with friends, her rebellion, and underlying it all, her relationship with me, a constant throughout her life. I wanted to photograph her in all her extremes, and to be part of these times in her life without judging or censoring. Only in this way would I have a true portrait of Alison.
