The Oriental small-clawed otter, also known as the Asian small-clawed otter, Aonyx cinerea (Carnivora - Mustelidae), is the smallest of the world’s otters.
As well as its size, the Asian short-clawed otter can be distinguished from other otters by its small claws, after which it is named, and the incomplete webbing between digits. These tiny claws, which do not protrude beyond the ends of the fingers, enhance the manual dexterity of this otter as it handles prey.
Aonyx cinerea has a large distribution, ranging from north-western and south-western India, through southern China and the Malay Peninsula, to Sumatra, Java, Borneo and the Riau Archipelago (Indonesia), and Palawan Island in the Philippines.
This species is classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, and listed on Appendix II of CITES.
I just got my hands on two books, Going Home and Ash, by the Chinese photographer Muge. I had written about his work a few years ago based on images I saw online, but this is the first time I have seen his books. Both books were made in 2013 and they work as a pair. For Going Home, Muge photographed the route back along the Yangtze river to his hometown of Chongqing in the aftermath of the construction of the Three Gorges Dam. The book is made up primarily of portraits within landscapes: muted images invested with a palpable sense of fear for the future that is woven into the nostalgia of Muge’s return home. Ash is the more poetic of the two books, a series of loose plates of still lives and interiors that share the same dusty tonality of the former book. For Ash, Muge turned inwards, away from the portrait and the landscape, combining images in order to explore a specific atmosphere and emotion. Muge’s use of the square format at times reminds me of the Japanese photographer Issei Suda and, although he is still young (b. 1979), he seems to have more affinities with this older generation of photographers than with much of contemporary photography. His two books are great examples of the fact that, even today, things can still happen by simply taking a camera and going out into the world.

When you take a walk in Paris, most of the time you’re surrounded by people. Some of them’s appearance looks familiar, but they’re strangers. You never know where are they going, where they work, what they think, even you’re never sure about what are they doing in that moment.
Observing people and photography were always his passions, so he decided to take each day one street portrait of a random Parisian stranger till reaching 365 pictures.
