1. After Fukushima.
Since Newsmotion's Kickstarter project ended last December, the media storytelling site has published six in-depth, feature-length articles that approach journalism from a civic perspective, exploring the ins and outs of humanity's relationship with the world.
Newsmotion’s sixth published piece is written by Josh Price, who is also in the middle of producing a new documentary via Kickstarter, cpm-730, which finds him examining the community adjacent to Japan’s Fukushima power plant after the nuclear meltdown.
While the film approaches the subject through the eyes of artist Shimpei Takeda, Price’s piece for Newsmotion, entitled “The Children of Fukushima,” chronicles the altered lives of kids growing up in the post-nuclear city, who now can only go outside for three hours a day — and only with a geiger counter in hand.

  2. Just a few months ago, the team behind Newsmotion raised funds on Kickstarter to launch a new platform for documentary reportage. Their mission statement was to harness “the power of independent voices, technology, and collaborative storytelling to help the critical issues of our time engage new audiences and find new solutions.” Very cool stuff. And now, in their most recent project update:



Today we are proud to present an original text and photo essay from photojournalist Kael Alford, who recently returned to Iraq, where she has worked on and off since the U.S. invasion in 2003. In this piece for Newsmotion, The Price of Work: Iraqi Women in Public and Private, Kael’s beautiful and intimate photos (see below) illustrate the public and private lives and struggles of working women in Iraq, and explores the role religion is playing since the American occupation ended. 
It’s worth the read. Check it out here.
