“What is striking is how quiet these places have become.”
In 2015, Europe bore witness to the largest movement of people since World War II. The route was closed in the spring of 2016 after a number of countries, including Hungary built fences and closed their borders and also after the EU negotiated a deal with Turkey to stem the flow across the Aegean. Getty Images photographers Matt Cardy and Milos Bicanski revisited the route to see what, if anything, has changed.
“A year ago, few people would have heard of Roszke in Hungary or Horgos in Serbia – let alone Rigonce in Slovenia or Tavornik in Croatia. These were merely the closest towns and villages to lines on the map that marked the change from one nation to another. Yet these places became flash points on last summer’s “Balkan Route” and the destinations I was now dialing into my car’s navigation to visit on a 1650 km circular road trip.
In other projects like this, it is the changes in our physical world that are the most noticeable. Now these places appear almost untouched by the lives that passed through them just last year. But everything has changed, Europe has changed. That’s perhaps why the pictures are so striking.” - @MattCardy

Chinese players from the Metropolitan #Polo Club team, in white, and players from the United States and Great Britain play an exhibition match at the Tianjin Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club on July 17, 2016 in Tianjin, #China. China's rising affluence has nurtured growing interest in polo and other past-times regarded as noble or prestigious by the country's elite. Clubs and international-size polo fields have been built in various cities including Beijing and Shanghai, and on the outskirts of Tianjin, where membership at the exclusive #Goldin Metropolitan, China's largest polo club, is by invitation-only and fees can be significant for polo team owners. Increasingly, wealthy Chinese parents are choosing polo and other equestrian activities for their children as a way to bolster their credentials for admission to top-tier universities in the United States and the United Kingdom. While the so-called 'sport of kings' became a mainstay in Hong Kong during the era of British rule, polo is a relatively new sport to mainland China. Professional polo players are frequently flown in from countries such as New Zealand and Argentina in order to field competitive matches. Many of the polo clubs in China are tied to luxury real estate developments. | 📷: @kevinfrayer #GettyImagesNews #GettyImages

Beijing, 2008: Mid-air, making history #50Days50Moments
“I was one of a small number of photographers who were allowed to take positions in the catwalk in the roof of #Beijing’s National Stadium for what would be a day long shoot. The women’s #polevault final was the last event of the session and we were all looking forward to coming down, as it was extremely tight quarters and very, very hot. I like this photo of Russia’s Elena Isinbaeva because the blue of the mat gives the appearance that she’s floating in the sky. Her unobstructed reaction and the position of the pole were so lucky. The fact that it set a then-world record and won her the gold medal makes the photo that much more meaningful, as it epitomizes what the #Olympics is all about.
