Paolo Pellegrin: Cuba’s New Now (NGM) After half a century under Castro, Cubans feel a wary sense of possibility. But this time, don’t expect a revolution.

Also in the latest National Geographic Magazine issue…Eugene Richards from Arkansas Delta… his feature mixes current work with photos from the early 70s.

Eugene Richards: Return to the Arkansas Delta (NGM) The delta west of the Mississippi River was once a place where sharecroppers lived in segregation and poverty yet forged a vibrant community. Industrial farming has erased their culture, leaving behind endless sky and few people. Eugene Richards documented their world four decades ago. Now he returns to where his pictures began.
