Alain Schroeder: Taekwondo North Korea Style

Alain Schroeder: Taekwondo North Korea Style

Although the origins of martial arts are shrouded in mystery, since time immemorial men have used their hands and feet for self-protection. Influenced by a combination of historical events in Korea and Japanese traditions, the modern incarnation of Korea’s national martial art Taekwondo (“way of kick and fist”) was created in 1955 by General Choi Hong-hi. Born in what is…
Steve Geer: One-Sixth of a Second – and the poetry of motion

Steve Geer: One-Sixth of a Second – and the poetry of motion

“There is something wonderful about a great photograph of life on the street. I think it’s because we humans are naturally nosy. We like to stare, absorb the details and imagine the facts, but on the street, we don’t have permission to stare. All we get is a glimpse. The great thing about a street photograph is that we have…
Tim Franco: Illicit Ink

Tim Franco: Illicit Ink

A series of intimate portraits of the underground tattooist community in South Korea shot on paper negatives. An obscure South Korean law makes tattooing technically illegal. Although this does not stop a growing number of underground tattoo parlors to open in people’s home or in hidden rooms, it does pose a challenge for a young generation looking to express themselves…
Urim Hong: City Soleil: a melody of hope

Urim Hong: City Soleil: a melody of hope

City Soleil is a small village within the Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Unlike its name–City of the Sun–however, it seems as though there is only a glimpse of light remaining. The city has become poor as its history of rebellion and conflict extorted its economic power. What is more, because the people were not able to have proper drainage system, their…
Alain Schroeder: Kim City

Alain Schroeder: Kim City

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) remains one of the most isolated and secretive nations in the world. Since its creation in 1948, the country has been ruled by three generations of the Kim dynasty currently under the control of his grandson, Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un. It is a self-reliant socialist society based on an extreme interpretation of the…

Hugo Santarem Rodrigues: Interior

My name is Hugo Santarem Rodrigues, and in 2016 I took a global ancestry DNA test to know my origins. From the result of this test, I decided to travel to the interior of the countries where my ancestors came from. I have been to Kenia and Ethiopia so far.

Sampa Guha Majumdar: Childhood

The children of the picture are staying beside this garbage and use this area for open toilet. Cows are moving freely there. These animals are also eating plastic waste. Children are very familiar with the pungent smell around everywhere. They are growing in this horrible environment. The stagnant water is very dirty and can spread all water-borne diseases. Cows are…
Karina Bikbulatova: The two parallel

Karina Bikbulatova: The two parallel

This black-and-white series of photos ‘about two sisters abandoned by their father, a reunion which can be no question. Just because they don’t know about each other the most important thing…’ They meet once a year in a small village, – communicate, play, weave braids to each other, but don’t know that they are sisters. Gulshat lives in a poor…
Bryce Morrison: Heavenly Bodies

Bryce Morrison: Heavenly Bodies

Heavenly Bodies – the nudes, is a selection from a larger body of work. Throughout the series, each model is told to display themselves in front of the camera in the way they would like to be represented. Due to the lack of posing the images are raw portraits of individuals who are being captured simply as they are. Bryce…
Elisabetta Gatti: Migration

Elisabetta Gatti: Migration

By the end of November, Milan Central Railroad Station becomes the meeting point for starlings preparing to migrate. But the show lasts just a couple of days, and you have to be ready. The first sign is when you start seeing some coming here from the parks of the town. At the beginning, they are just small groups, but in…
Patrick Desgraupes: Unveiled Memories

Patrick Desgraupes: Unveiled Memories

Sometimes Time seems to freeze. A deep sense of harmony and “déjà vu” can fill us. The impression of being inhabited by a sudden level of consciousness. Silence fills the space and becomes palpable. But silence, perhaps, is only the resonance of forgotten memories, and the veil, a manifestation of the persistence of this vision. Patrick Desgraupes is a French…
Hampus Danielsson: Sweet Dreams

Hampus Danielsson: Sweet Dreams

What is a nightmare? Paralyzed by fear in the middle of the night, what is the culprit? Trauma, poor health, lousy self care, a malfunction of the amygdala (the part of your brain responsible for controlling anger and fear) or something much more ominous? Are these bumps in the night the product of Rapid Eye Movement, or a visit from…
Matthew Tuffield: Shapes of Architecture

Matthew Tuffield: Shapes of Architecture

Exploring Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne recently on my holidays with my camera and trusty tripod, enabled me to capture, with long exposure techniques, the most amazing and unique architectural designs Australia has to offer. The shapes, textures and design elements, mixed with perfect weather, helped me to create some of the beautiful long-exposure fine art photographs in this collection. The…

Vincent de WILDE d’ESTMAEL: Ads and Street Art in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This series of photographs taken on the streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, explore the unintentional interaction between the people caught in their daily activities and modern advertising boards or street art. Behind the humour of some situations, they point at social inequalities. The photographs emphasise the high contrast between modern and traditional life, Western and Asian perspectives, luxury and simplicity,…
Marina Kazakova: The poetics of childhood

Marina Kazakova: The poetics of childhood

The concept of the series is expressed in a mental journey through intimate visions of private life showing how often stories that worth to be told are very close to us. The poetics of childhood: boundless sensuality, confidence and a huge need for love, perhaps more than in any other period of life. Marina Kazakova was born in Soviet Union…
Mohammad Rakibul Hasan: Salt

Mohammad Rakibul Hasan: Salt

Global warming seems to have more severe impact on certain countries than others because of the way it affects the world climate. An immediate effect of global warming is the increased natural disasters like storm surge and flood, while sea level rise is a slow, yet inevitable process. Bangladesh, the largest delta of the world is an obvious victim of…
Murat Yazar: Shadows of Kurdistan

Murat Yazar: Shadows of Kurdistan

I was born and raised in a village near the city of Urfa. For us, Kurdish was the language used for communicating, until I went to school. The beginning of my education marked a point that changed my primary language from the language we spoke at home and in my community to the language we spoke in school. It was…
