Al Magwa 1991
Work in progress at the oil field. Iraq's demolition troops left hundreds of 'wild wells' in Kuwait gushing with oil, as much as six million barrels a day at the peak. Then the desert firefighters moved in, latter day cowboys with helmets instead of stetsons, working for companies with names like Boots & Coots and Safety Boss. They got to work amidst unexploded mines and the roar of burning jets of oil, on soil so hot it blistered their knees as they knelt down.

Olongapo, Luzon Island 1991
Inhabitants venture out between the eruptions of Mount Pinatubo. Over 330 dead and 250,000 homeless was the tragic toll of the eruptions. The 1,780m high volcano had lain dormant for over 600 years. Mass evacuation got underway as ash and stones rained from the sky. Nearby US Clark Air Force Base sustained so much damage that the Pentagon decided to close it.

Paul Lowe

1992
A woman who was exposed to radiation at the age of 14 with her disabled son. The long-term effects of nuclear tests held in Kazakhstan in the 1950s still affect the lives of those who were in the area at the time.

Ronald Frommann

Dortmund 1993
A catheter is attached to the foot of an infant to establish the oxygen level in the blood. This neonatal center specializes in high-risk and premature births. Infants born three months early, some weighing as little as 500 grams, are no exception here. They are kept alive with the latest techniques and around-the-clock nursing care, but even so, most babies born before the 26th week of pregnancy suffer permanent damage.
