7th Salsa Festival by Siryo Náve

It is often a struggle for her/him to reach the dreams that were once created by luck or persuasion, a constant battle of the mind to control the worn-out body.

7th Salsa Festival : From the first practice till the last act, a performer’s life follows so many steps, meets so many different and powerful emotions.

It is often a struggle for her/him to reach the dreams that were once created by luck or persuasion, a constant battle of the mind to control the worn-out body. A theme that I always find particularly interesting so that I remain as much as I can next to the performer, before and after the training, the act.

This time I followed for two days a friend who, luckily for me, happened to participate in the 7th Salsa festival, at Loutraki, Greece. Beside the very well respected international participants, lots of amateur dancers could also join a number of different courses and seminars that were held at each of the four stages.

Nevertheless, my focus was primarily on my friend’s preparation, mental and physical. She was not just a dancer; every little detail of her act was her own responsibility. The dress, the make-up, the music, the lights, the choreography. There were moments that you could tell her agony, even if you did not know her as well as I. But all these moments were forgotten, forgiven, upon the act and especially after, when the applause and the acclaim made the tears matter.

About Siryo Náve

Born in 1985 in Athens, Greece. His current home, after a seven year period abroad. Always on the edge of a new project, a new destination, he sometimes whispers: “Is it that my life is a journey or that the journey is my life…?” Most of all he enjoys people, having meaningful conversations, sharing their stories through photographs or writing, sometimes both.

Photography as a profession is a dream that has very recently come true. This is his second publication with respect to photography. His first novel is about to be published. [Official Website]

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

Til All Is Correct by Louise Fago-Ruskin

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.
