An immersive view of nature’s vastness and purity, which reminds us of our origination. A long-term project, 12 years of images, set in the surroundings of Oslo, where both human interference and noise are absent.
Paris is one super aperture, set in deep focus for over a thousand years, and it encompasses many variegated thematic apertures: thresholds, that yield a myriad perspectives on the specific facets of this ancient cultural capital.
The essay photograpy with which Edu Monteiro presents Ladja is simple. In it, an African descendant man partially immersed in water holds a drum. The grip tension seems to be aimed less at protecting the drum from encountering water and more at bringing it along, connecting it to oneself.
The series “Easton Nights” began in late 2015 as an exercise in night photography, inspired mostly by the poetic shots of George Tice. The exercise soon evolved into an obsession, not just with the night or night photography.

In a hollowed trunk as a way of the canoe, we cross one of the White Nile branches. Rushing river leaves, among its branches, fertile islands occupied by a community living in subsidiaries sharing everything, utensils, blankets, instruments and collaborating in the ancient daily chores. It is the "Mundari" territory, nomadic shepherds of the Nile.
It is estimated that between 5000 and 18,000 registered/unregistered artisanal fishermen operate in the bay. Fishermen have borne the economic cost of its environmental degradation more than any other group.
The American Dream. Has it become just a dream today? Embark on the US roads, from New York to the Deep South. Pass by scenes that seem like frozen in time and which maintain the flame of a former glory.
Since 2009, I have been documenting Irish Travellers using a b&w film medium format camera. But an unfortunate incident occurred when I realised I left my bag full of Hasselblad film cameras and lenses on the train from Venice to Rome in May 2018.

Just like a painter gradually creates its own unique palette by mixing up colors like never before and never after, the photographer can steal the colors that are around him: on people, on bricks, on nature.
The differences can’t be considered limitations, although in our culture these concepts are commonly used as synonyms, limitations are no more than the opportunity to find other routs for the same end, and there is where I find my inspiration: "The sound of silence "
I think it has a distinctive design. I really like the cover. The full-page portraits of the featured photographers are unusual and, I think, effective. At the end of the day, what really counts is the content – the work that the magazine presents. In general, I find the content inspiring.
The Panzudos represent the sins: the more sins a person has to expiate, the bigger and uglier his attire will be, the better to cure his sins. These figures herald the feast day of Our Lady of La Merced and accompany her, purifying themselves in the process.

These images are from my larger exhibit "The True Cost of Oil which explores the relationship between the world's largest energy project and the environment - both local and global - which it threatens.
This work is a tribute to the Xacriaba, one of the many indigenous people of Brazil. A way to record in images a brave and noble people and their way of living. A culture that is fading and that may be lost forever.
In this portfolio I draw inspiration from the art of minimalism.By using modern technology I have created photographs that are both true to the artist and the definition of minimalism but convey a modernist approach.
A token is a fraction of the whole. It is not the original, and it will never be the original. It is a sliver, a moment in time, to stand-in for that which is irreplaceable. My art series “Token” was inspired by that definition.

The missing forest It is not the forest of milk of Dylan Thomas nor the mysterious jungle of Emilio Salgari. It is – just and nothing less – a handful of twigs that the time dried and the eye finished to dissect and isolate, until they float in black chamber, turning them into ideograms of an underground pondering.
Sight is a continuous stream of visual resources that allow us to understand and interact with the world, but memory is selective and interrupted. Coming from a Cinema background I tend to consider images for what they mean during a temporal dimension, and time makes them ephemeral.
I recently photographed the Quixotic journey of Joey Allen, a Navajo Indian who embarked on a mission to ride his bicycle from Flagstaff, Arizona, to Monument Valley, Utah, campaigning for “Madonna for President.”
Each summer, a large extended family of Roma camp out in an olive grove on the island of Skopelos, Greece. Their family is vast and reaches into many towns on mainland Greece. Last May, I drove into their compound and asked if I could photograph them.
Sustainability, sustainable development, conscious consumption, environmentally friendly and recycling are among the trending expressions nowadays in the media. These were already incorporated in my vocabulary and habits but a few years ago, walking around my home town – Curitiba
The body of work “Thou Art..,Will Give...’ is derived from the first Penitentiary in the United States. The Quakers started it because they believed they could reform people by putting them in solitaire for the full sentence and provide them with a Bible to give their Penitence.
