Photo by @edkashi/@viiphoto. Armed guards during Friday prayers at the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan in 2009. The Badshahi Mosque, or the “Emperor’s Mosque,” is the second largest #mosque in #Pakistan and South Asia and the 5th largest in the world. It opened in 1673, and remained the largest mosque in the world for 313 years until 1986 when the Faisal Mosque in Islamabad was completed. @viiphoto #Pakistan #independence #homeland #Muslim #travel #tbt #fromthearchives

Tug-of-war at Aitchison College, an all-boys school in Lahore, Pakistan in 1998. The college was founded by the #British in 1886 and was originally designed as an exclusive boy’s boarding school with the objective of education “the relatives of the Ruling Chiefs of the Punjab, youths of good family, and the minors under the guardianship of the Court of Wards,” says the Aitchison website. @viiphoto #Pakistan #independence #homeland #Muslim #travel #tbt #fromthearchives

Troops returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan march in #Ohio with Lima Company 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines (3/25), which is a reserve infantry battalion in the United States Marine Corps. The battalion was first formed in 1943 for service in the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II, taking part in a number of significant battles including those at Saipan and Iwo Jima before being deactivated at the end of the war. In the early 1960s, the unit was reactivated as a reserve battalion. Currently headquartered in Brook Park, Ohio with units throughout Ohio, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania, the battalion is nicknamed "three deuce five" and consists of approximately 800 Marines and Sailors. They fall under the 25th Marine Regiment and the 4th Marine Division. Recent operations have included tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. #vets #veteransday #military #soldiers @viiphoto

This is another image from a project I worked on with @opensocietyfoundations about police profiling in #Europe. On October 22, a support group of the local police union was upset over the exhibition, criticising it as “anti-police.” This is an issue of #FreeSpeech, increasingly under threat in society today. Omer Mas Capitolin, an elected official and victim of profiling, shot in #Paris, #France on March 30, 2012. @viiphoto #viiphoto #harassment #profiling #diversity #tbt #fromthearchives

This image is being exhibited in Grenoble, France at the moment as part of a project I worked on with @opensocietyfoundations about police profiling in Europe. Apparently a support group of the local police union was upset over the exhibition and defaced it and mounted a small protest. The exhibition was outside of the city hall and was sanctioned by the local government. This is an issue of free speech, which is increasingly under threat in our societies today. Mounir Seydi, 22, a business school student in Lille, #France poses for a portrait on April 1, 2012. Seydi had been harassed by the police many times. This is from a project on police profiling in Europe, examining the impact on #immigrants and minorities who must contend with the stigma, legal pressures and exclusion from society these practices can cause victims of such policies and behavior.  @viiphoto #viiphoto #harassment #profiling #diversity #tbt #fromthearchives
