Unsung Hero: My Grandmother | Photograph by Davide Pischettola.“When I started taking pictures about seven years ago, I was with my grandmother; she was 90 years old and needed help,” writes Your Shot photographer Davide Pischettola. “My first trial shots, first portraits, and later first stories were on my grandmother. She was my source of inspiration. When she cooked and knit, she taught me how to do it. When she told me about how she met my grandfather, it stimulated my curiosity. Everything she did was inspiration to me.”—Inspired by the @natgeochannel series, “The Long Road Home,” that relives the ferocious ambush the American First Cavalry Division endured in Sadr City, Iraq in 2004, @natgeoyourshot is launching a new assignment called “Unsung Hero,” curated by @natgeo photographer Matt Moyer (@mattmoyerphoto). Matt is inviting you to share who is your hero and more importantly, why? Who lifts you up, inspires you, protects you, even saves you?

Unsung Hero: Volunteers | Photograph by Patrick Ryan.“A 10PM fire call out resulted in a crew of eight volunteers from the Volunteer Wildlife Services taking on the right flank of the Berg River fire that was heading up the mountain outside Franschoek, South Africa,” writes Your Shot photographer Patrick Ryan. “Armed only with beaters and rake hoes, the crew battled the fire for over three kilometers and climbed over 1,000 meters in altitude.”—Inspired by the @natgeochannel series, “The Long Road Home,” that relives the ferocious ambush the American First Cavalry Division endured in Sadr City, Iraq in 2004, @natgeoyourshot is launching a new assignment called “Unsung Hero,” curated by @natgeo photographer Matt Moyer (@mattmoyerphoto).

Photo by @michaelnicknichols | Jane Goodall and Jou Jou, chimpanzee at Brazzaville Zoo, Republic of Congo, 1990. I (@michaelnicknichols) grew up with Jane Goodall, Flo, Flint and Greybeard on the pages of National Geographic magazine in the 1960’s, and wildly came to photograph Fifi, Frodo, Freud and Jane in the 1990’s. Jane and I collaborated on the book Brutal Kinship, bringing to light the disappearing terrain chimpanzees relied on to live, and how we humans cruelly and without irony used our closest relative as stand-in surrogates for space exploration, HIV and hepatitis research, language studies, and entertainment.-Jane, 83, is still at it, traveling nonstop on her mission. She recently closed my exhibit WILD at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with a talk that brought me and the entire house to tears.-Opening in theaters today is a masterpiece film by Brett Morgen. #JANE is an intense love story made from footage literally found in the NatGeo HQ basement from legendary Dutch filmmaker Hugo van Lawick, and includes a beautiful score by ‪Philip Glass‬. This is far more revealing than any huge budget biopic could ever hope to match. #JANE | © instagram.com/natgeochannel

Photo by @FransLanting.Recognizing every one as an individual and as a member of a family is one of the profound contributions Jane Goodall has made to our understanding of chimpanzees. Instead of assigning them numbers as scientists were supposed to do, she gave them names. Her pioneering work, and that of her partner, the gifted Dutch cameraman Hugo van Lawick, who was able to visualize what Jane felt, changed the way we look at chimps--and it influenced how I look at all animals. I post this image of Nickel, a female chimp in Senegal, and her newborn infant Teva, made on assignment for @natgeo, in honor of Jane Goodall and to celebrate the new NatGeo film “JANE”..Follow @FransLanting for more images of animals as individuals. @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #JaneGoodall #chimp #ape #gratitude #family #baby #animal #celebrate #inspire #naturelovers #JANE | © instagram.com/natgeochannel

ABOUT THE FILM:Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists....#TIFF #TIFF2017 #worldpremiere #janegoodall @janegoodallinst | © instagram.com/natgeochannel
