Jeffrey Gusky, a U.S. medic who for the past 20 years has gathered images for a photo project called "The Hidden World of WWI", looks at inscriptions by WWI soldiers in underground caves accessible by small spiral stairs in the village's church at Bouzincourt, northern France, July 13, 2015. Neglected for decades, underground caves in a small village in France's Somme valley contain a treasure trove of hundreds of engravings by World War One Canadian and British soldiers as they sought refuge from German assaults. War researchers say the engravings in the chalky rocks of Bouzincourt, which range from inscriptions of a soldier's name to crudely sculpted flags and hearts, offer a powerful insight into the thoughts of those caught up in the Somme Offensive, one of the bloodiest battles of the 20th century.

A miner takes a short break inside an unregulated coal mine in Sabinas
A miner takes a short break inside an unregulated coal mine in Sabinas January 15, 2013. Everyday, thousands of miners go to work in the unregulated coals mines of northern Mexico knowing they may not return. Facing death on a daily basis has become a fact of life for these men as they struggle to scrape out a living in an environment bereft of rules and regulations, lacking even the most basic equipment. Unregulated mines are legal in Mexico. A company buys or leases land from a cooperative and is legally allowed to mine on it, but is not subject to any regulations. Despite the dangers, some 30,000 miners find themselves willing to take the risk, approaching their job with a matter-of-fact philosophy. Picture taken January 15, 2013.

The hunger strikers stayed close to some machinery to keep warm. They started the hunger strike on Monday on behalf of some 700 miners, who have been striking and shutting down the mine since early July, to force their Austrian employer DCM DECOmetal to to meet their demands for a 20 percent pay rise and fresh investment, a union leader said.
