Leigh Griffiths: Meat

Leigh Griffiths: Meat

Throughout China meat is an important part of life. Poultry and pork are staple proteins, so in the local marketplaces, live and freshly-killed animals make up most of what’s on offer. As a westerner who grew up only ever seeing meat already cut into unidentifiable pieces behind glass or on my plate, walking through a Chinese wet market is a…
Tommaso Sacconi: Light on

Tommaso Sacconi: Light on

This series shows people in the instant of coming out of the dark or just about to vanish in it. This is the only moment that I fall in love with them. Each of the pictures is the result of minutes, sometimes hours, spent waiting for something to happen. I usually get attracted by locations first. I walk there over…
Olivier Robert: Japan Coastlines

Olivier Robert: Japan Coastlines

My approach consists in using the ‘unintentional aesthetic’ of the man-made objects or structures left alongside the coasts to reveal a personal appreciation of the way these objects and the landscapes answer each other. It also tries to depict my interrogation about the influence of these man-made objects on the perception we have of the landscape or the way they…
Evgeny Matveev: Portraits of young women

The UWLF Project: Underwater Large Format – Back to the Future

The UWLF Project: Underwater Large Format – Back to the Future

The photographs made with the film large format cameras still remain popular nowadays. Herewith the story of the underwater large format seems to be unrevealed. After the works of Louis Boutan, Jacob Reighard and other researchers in the late XIX – early XX centuries the use of large format cameras for underwater shooting has stopped. Since that times almost nobody…
Debiprasad Mukherjee: God Never Talks. But the Devil Keeps Advertising

Debiprasad Mukherjee: God Never Talks. But the Devil Keeps Advertising

On the banks of Sipra River, Ujjain (India), ‘exorcism’ took a greater height, where in the name of religion, people were being beaten up ruthlessly during Kumbh Mela. Thousands of pilgrims had accumulated here in the name of pilgrimage. They had brought their relatives and friends to free them from evil spirits and the exorcists were violently beating up and…
Borys Makary: They were

Borys Makary: They were

The “They were” project boils down to the “Man Rey-esque” form of negatives, on which signs and digits, symbolising the personality of the character in the picture, were painted by hand. The starting point was numerology, certain symbols which were to say something about the given person. Each photograph tells the story of a different woman. Symbols and numbers are…
Pogus Caesar: From Jamaica Row, Rebirth of the Bullring

These powerful images have been selected from over 500 in the OOM Gallery Archive to illustrate the demolition of the past and a premonition of the future for the City of Birmingham. Jamaica Row is the pedestrian route situated between the Open Market and St Martin’s Market. Its name derives from a pub called the Black Boy in reference to…
Eric Williams: Conduits of Steel

Eric Williams: Conduits of Steel

The shiny twin rails of steel disappear beyond the curve to places we can’t see. Some are real and some imagined. These rails are conduits of trade and commerce, linking us geographically. To us, they are conduits of memories, imagination and dreams. They bring us to a place we yearn for, a place unseen, a place to discover. Eric Williams…
David Wrangborg: Traversing Tranquility

David Wrangborg: Traversing Tranquility

Svalbard is a remarkable place for wilderness adventure. Springtime ski touring on the glacier plateaus is a personal favorite. This series is meant to capture some of the grandeur and tranquility experienced during a June visit. Untouched snow surfaces, nunataks raising to the sky and silence. David Wrangborg is a master of Engineering Physics with a passion for nature, conservation,…

Craig Colvin: Barcoded

Craig Colvin: Barcoded

Craig Colvin is an award-winning photographer and educator based in San Jose, CA. Craig uses photography to share the visions that are in his mind and is happiest when his finger is on the shutter button. His primary focus is using the human body as art. This is expressed in many forms; abstracting the body and concentrating on patterns, shapes,…
Sebastian Jacobitz: Berlin After Dark

Sebastian Jacobitz: Berlin After Dark

The photos were taken during the Christmas Time in Berlin. The Ku’Damm is enlightened with all the Christmas decoration and offer a unique opportunity for this kind of Street Photography. Often times we feel less motivated during the winter. Especially for photography, there seems this prejudice that we need good light in order to create good photographs. Often times I…
Clayton Bastiani: The Alternative Light Project

Clayton Bastiani: The Alternative Light Project

These pictures form part of an ongoing project exploring nude photography whereby the model is lit with alternative light sources – torches and lighting easily found in hardware stores. Rather than establish how the lighting will be beforehand, the lights are often given to the model to hold and move themselves. Through a mix of direction and collaboration we establish…
Dale M Reid: Dejeuner

Dale M Reid: Dejeuner

The oyster mushroom captured my imagination because of their bizarre shapes, alien textures and intricate detail. To create the best images, my preference is the brown and pink color varieties; however, with creativity, I am able to capture unique images with blue and grey color varieties. To compose the image, I experiment with the position of the mushroom cluster. The…
Robin Yong: Flowers of Ethiopia

Robin Yong: Flowers of Ethiopia

The Surma tribe of the Omo Valley, Ethiopia…a place where mankind probably began. The children and teens appear innocent and beautiful, with their ornate body paint work and exotic head decorations made of flowers. The place appears peaceful and untouched, but in reality, life here is harsh with the tribespeople at frequent wars with neighbouring tribes over cattle grazing rights.…

Meghna Shirish Iyer: Nine

Meghna Shirish Iyer: Nine

The idea of documenting ‘Birth’ existed in my mind for over a year. The ‘why’ of this project is the apparent ignorance and the subsequent fascination that comes with it. The fact that I haven’t seen a childbirth in person made me extremely curious. Research on this revealed a lot of beautified images and none of the stark reality of…
Julien Fumard: Himalaya – Titans of Light & Shadow

Julien Fumard: Himalaya – Titans of Light & Shadow

The highest summits in the world stand in front of me. It is hard to believe that they are only a consequence of the collision between two tectonic plates. No, deep within me I know it is about something else, about a truth that we cannot grasp and try to justify with arrogance; because the only certitude is that everything,…
