Portfolio. Ghosts of Gezi. Photographs by Pari Dukovic. Introduction by Raffi Khatchadourian. There was the crassness of the idea: to build a kitschy shopping mall in a reconstituted Ottoman military barracks, in the middle of Istanbul's treasured Gezi Park. There was the whiff of cronyism in it ...

In response to Cecil's brutal killing, we asked 6 National Geographic photographers to share their experiences with lions - both beautiful and sad. I was most struck by Brent Stirton's words. He photographed at a lion farm in South Africa, and wrote:

"Humans are more voracious than lions will ever be—we seize their land, kill their natural prey, force them into conflict with us. Certain hunters pay a lot of money to shoot these magnificent creatures: Some of it genuinely reinforces conservation, while some of it just reinforces alpha-male egos. What is certain is that if we do not protect their natural habitats, the lions of the future will all come from these facilities, just another manufactured commodity. I wonder then how many generations it would take to quell the lion within."

From Mrithi the gorilla to intimate familial moments to remnants from the Indian Ocean Tsunami, the breadth of stories and gratitude is moving: http://bit.ly/1uYSExl. Happy thanksgiving!
As a new photo editor at National Geographic, I was eager to learn more about the photographers we work with, many of whom I haven’t met in person. In honor of Thanksgiving, I asked ten of them to ...
