Rita Santanatoglia: 1943, journey in a story

Rita Santanatoglia: 1943, journey in a story

This series is my free interpretation of bombing of Rome in Second World War. On July 19 ,1943, the entire working class district of San Lorenzo was destroyed, 3000 Italian civilians were killed in the raids over five residential/railway districts. In those pictures I propose a journey from the future in this past,I just wanted identifying with feelings and the…
Emanuele Vitale: Seeing Beyond – Discoveries

Emanuele Vitale: Seeing Beyond – Discoveries

A discovery destined to revolutionize the world, in 1954, thanks to Giulio Natta, found the definitive consecration with the discovery of “Moplen” (polyethylene). A material that will enter into daily life and revolutionize each of us’ s customs and habits thanks also to the economic boom that will characterize the 50/60/70 years. The plastic, commonly called will have an increasingly…
Valeria Sacchetti: Journey to the Lowlands

Valeria Sacchetti: Journey to the Lowlands

A road movie that tells the dream beyond the frontiers of the lowlanders, immersed in a microcosm, still unknown, in which time flows, slowly. There, time is fragmented, blurred and oniric where water has its own music and whispers the stories of the inhabitants. Family ties, my roots, the bucolic landscape, the abandoned places and animals: there in the Emilia…
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

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…
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…
Allan Teger: Bodyscapes

Allan Teger: Bodyscapes

The artist in every culture takes on some of the roles of the shaman. The artist walks the fine line between the conscious and the unconscious, the obvious and the hidden. My background (Ph.D. in psychology) led me to the study of consciousness, meditation and spirituality. After years of teaching I left academics to apply what I had learned to…
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

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. Deep down, the base of the project is to respect…
