Photograph by @JohnStanmeyer African migrants crowd the night shore along the Red Sea in Djibouti city, trying to capture inexpensive cell signals from neighboring Somalia—a tenuous link to relatives abroad. For more than 60,000 years our species has been relying on such intimate social connections to spread across the Earth. This photograph is part of this months National Geographic cover story, Our Greatest Journey. Background Insight: Reaching Djibouti City after weeks of traveling overland from a small village in the desert region of Ethiopia, it was a welcoming site to see the ripping waters of the Red Sea. With my infatuation for photographing at night, I went wandering around the capital looking for interesting things taking place, stumbling upon this epic scene of men and women trying to connect (or as Somali's say, catching) the mobile phone network across the border in neighboring Somalia. It was the night of the full moon, the beach filled with people with glowing cell phones, naturally creating an example of our modern means to stay connected to each other. It was touching to see how important it was — and the happiness heard in the voices — for people to share a chat with loved ones back home. All my best, John Stanmeyer @OutOfEdenWalk @ThePhotoSociety @VIIPhoto #Djibouti #DjiboutiCity #mobilephone #cellphone #communication #moon #moonlight #RedSea Note: Would like to give a shout out to my son, @RichardStanmeyer, who is now on Instagram, producing some mighty nice images of his own. Do follow this 14 year-old's visual journey, a musician at heart as well as a passionate creator of what he sees around him, thanks. JS
