Manuel Micheli: ROTELLANDO VERSO SUD

Manuel Micheli: ROTELLANDO VERSO SUD

ITALY. Approximately 1400 kilometres covered, 65 days of travel, 8 regions crossed and 56 stages completed. I could summarize this wonderful experience of “Rotellando verso sud” (“Rotating towards the south”). There are stories that need to be told. Stories of courage and optimism. Stories of example for all. Supported by an unshakable faith in one’s own individual resources, an uncommon…
Swarat Ghosh: Beyond Street

Swarat Ghosh: Beyond Street

When I first started the project there was no idea in my mind. In the beginning, the initial intent for me was to capture a nice frame (aesthetically). In my mind, it was always to capture one single image from my entire day/night outing. I used to walk miles after miles just waiting for the moments to unfold in front…
William Mark Sommer: The Loneliest Highway

William Mark Sommer: The Loneliest Highway

The empty stretch of road goes on for miles, nothing but the occasional sign or the passerby as the pavement beneath my tires breathes the melody of past motorists. The Loneliest Highway is my lyrical journey across Nevada finding solace in the emptiness along the Lincoln Highway in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic. This melancholy song is driven by…

Ramtin Firouzian: People

I think separation and loneliness are the main themes of the century. Everyone either suffers from loneliness or worries about being alone or still doesn’t realize they are alone. The reason I chose this collection was that these days I think the quarantine and social distancing of all people can comfort those who are always alone. In this series, the…
Marco Barbera: Postures of the naked self

Marco Barbera: Postures of the naked self

This series studies the symbolism of postures and geometries of the human body. It describes different characters whose nakedness forces them to confront to their own self and to what they really are, whether in their greatness or weakness. For me, nudity limits the human being to its true essence, thus it conveys transparency and truthfulness to the emotions that…
Artur Stankiewicz: Great Spectacle of Nature – Mara River Crossing

Artur Stankiewicz: Great Spectacle of Nature – Mara River Crossing

Crossings of the Mara River by hundreds of thousands wildebeests during their yearly migration routes have been documented by many photographers. The drama and the sheer size of this miracle of nature leaves lasting impression on anyone who witnessed thousands of gnu running, jumping and swimming through the river. It is also a ‘photographers dream’ as sometimes happenings are simply…
Holly Wilmeth: Sacred Nature

Holly Wilmeth: Sacred Nature

This project portrays the deep connection between the nature surrounding us and our human nature. The images serve as an invitation to awaken to a place of sacred sanctuary. The harmony of the natural world is available to us in our own backyard through the powerful healing energy of traditional plant wisdom. I didn’t go out of my way to…
Andrey Troitsky: Space – Metamorphoses

Andrey Troitsky: Space – Metamorphoses

Man and the external world. Space has his poetry. Space is dual in nature: on the one hand, it is the soil on which all plants grow, the air we breathe, and our home, but at the same time we also live in the space of our inner world, and we say this is me – human. But we are…

Gary Krueger: City of Angels, 1971-1980

Joseph Bellows Gallery is pleased to present Gary Krueger’s City of Angels, 1971-1980, a collection of sometimes frenetic and often bizarre photographs of Los Angeles, California. Krueger’s curiosity and instincts helped to create a remarkable body of street photography that he describes as “split-second juxtapositions in life.” After graduating High School in 1963, Gary Krueger (1945 – ) drove his…
Peter Schroyens: Serenity – Alien Cities

Peter Schroyens: Serenity – Alien Cities

Serenity reflects my imagination about an alien, architectural world, inspired by science-fiction stories of the early 20th century. Contemporary and modern architecture are detached from their environement and projected into a futuristic universe, entirely stripped of human noise. Surrounded by this visual silence, the buildings of Serenity demand a certain presence, enhanced by stark ligthing effects and deep shadows. Three…

Dolores Smart: Shadow Man

Dolores Smart: Shadow Man

My husband is tall and loves to dress up, so I asked him to wear his authentic Derby hat on an evening walk in downtown Santa Fe. His shadow curved up the adobe walls in fantastical shapes. I played with them even more in post processing and came up with this series called ‘Shadow Man.’ ‘Shadow Man’ was the Black…

Clayton Anderson: Kicking Sawdust

Clayton Anderson: Kicking Sawdust

Clayton Anderson was living the life of a 19-year-old, had secured a funky apartment near the water in Miami Beach, was waiting tables and hanging out with friends, when his life took a decidedly atypical turn. The courtyard payphone rang and his father on the other line said he needed to come help the family run their cinnamon roll concession…

At a time when predictions of climate catastrophe are becoming ever more frequent, these gelatin silver prints, hand printed and mounted by the artist, feel especially timely…
Stefan Moses: THE ANIMAL AND ITS HUMAN

Stefan Moses: THE ANIMAL AND ITS HUMAN

Anyone who observes Stefan Moses at work is suddenly drawn into the maelstrom of that quiet insistent madness with which a great photographer makes the living objects submissive, if not defenseless, to his desire. He smiles kindly. Many gentle, affirmative words create the deceptive impression of a conversation, as if the photographic victim still had a will of his own,…
