Aish Baladi In Egypt To most of the people in the world, bread is a kind of food, but for Egyptians, bread is “life.” More than 5000 years back, bread culture already started in Egypt, Egyptians call bread “Aish Baladi”.
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.
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.
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. It was their grand experiment to try and help people. Obviously, it did not work.
On November 7, 2017, South Korean President Moon Jae-in extended a “heartfelt welcome” towards US President Donald Trump as he arrived in South Korea for a two-day summit to reaffirm the Korea-US alliance.
Through time and elements; through hope and despair; through the eyes of the ones who once left and fought the ruthless sea; the ones who stayed and faced the shape of history, and us, who came in wonder, Havana stands as a monument to resilience.
“The World’s Greatest Tobacco Market” says the title of a book, Wilson was indeed a prosperous trading center of tobacco, with a growing population employed and involved in different thriving activities, a vibrant and bustling downtown as old pictures recall, and a railroad connecting the small and wealthy town to the major cities of the east coast.
How to shoot at home and stay creative under bad conditions I hope this article can serve as inspiration (not only) for all budget nude photographers who are lacking good quality equipment, a studio, lighting or any other ‘necessary’ things photographers can’t work without. A little about me I used to live in an apartment that was great for shooting. It had almost no furniture, there were lovely wooden floors, white walls and a lot…
The felicific calculus is an algorithm formulated by jurist and reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832) for calculating the moral rightness of an action by balancing the probable pleasures and pains that it would produce. Bentham, a utilitarian philosopher, believed this calculus could, in principle, help determine the moral status of any considered act.
The fishermen of Ngapali Beach, Myanmar is a series from a project I have been working on over the past couple of years. Continuously revisiting the fisherman’s village to capture their day-to-day life.
Pamela Aminou is a self taught artist based in London that chooses photography as a way to express herself. Through her work, she’s able to transcribe what she feels at a specific time, to better understand her emotions and what surrounds and most importantly to interpret the world that she lives in.
“Escape” is devoted to several years of my life when I did not want to deal with my feelings, being not ready to be sincere with myself. I’ve been working as a photographer for a magazine and a real estate company, riding my black Vespa through the city, videotaping a psychedelic metal band, and I was in love.
It is a dark world that millions of people are forced to work in, made of mines, dust and fear. Characterized by oppression, violence and trampled human rights; where the presence of enormous deposits of minerals transform into a curse for the people through the illegality caused by games of power and corrupt economies.
The photographs I made for this series were neglected nearly three years, before I’ve chosen some to be shown to the public. This time distance is likely not just a duration between two dates, but rather distance between two personas.
As everybody knows, Photography is the art of ‘writing’ with light. What is written is what light can register: shapes, tones, things and people. In a word, Photography deals with what the philosopher Descartes called ‘extension’.
There is nothing more beautiful and liberating than indulging in your (one’s) own pandemonium, nothing more reassuring of one’s existence, both spiritually and physically, and this belief of mine gave birth to this particular series.
Floating Japan brings together a collection of photographs taken in October 2018. An effervescent but at the same time relaxing and inspiring country, the title refers to this impression of detachment one can feel there, mostly due to the gap between reality and interpretation.
The current pace of development around the world has brought widespread concern about a loss of diversity in nature and the need to protect endangered species. But the changes brought by the forces of globalization, industrialization and urbanization affect not only animals and plants. People and cultures, ways of thinking and ways of living that have been in existence for thousands of years, are also at risk.
From my very infancy, I haven’t been living under the protective shade of my paternal grandmother ‘Rowshan Ara Begum’ and therefore I could never envision her persona, never understand her sorrows and joys,
There is a certain magic to the American Midwest. Honest. Modest. Understated. Sometimes unappreciated. Often overlooked. I created Midwest Memoir as a way to help others see the American Midwest in a whole new light.
The world’s population has increased from 4 billion to 7 billion since 1975 with the majority of the population surge occurring in developing countries. Today, it is estimated that over 4 billion people are living in urban centers with one quarter of these people (1 billion people) living in slums, and shantytowns within these centers.
Most first-time tourists to New York head out to busy Times Square and other parts of touristy Manhattan, seeking to feel the continuous flow of 24h life that ‘the city that never sleeps’ is known for.
Dreams and hidden memories – is what the artist works with. In his photographs the reality – landscapes or various cityscapes – is a bit reconstructed to include an imaginary personage who is missing from actual life or even from actual memory.
London, the city of hope and potential, history and culture. One of the world’s most visited places, it has something for everyone. At times, the city feels like an amusement park with thousands of tourists pushing their way through the crowds.
Besides the incomparable issues that Venezuela faces, the country also has to deal with the upcoming complications in universal problems such as deaths caused by cancer and how they have been increasing ever since the financial crisis began to lash the oil nation in 2014.
As I pulled away from Mom and Dad’s condo, I looked back one more time and snapped two photos of Mom as she waived goodbye from the sidewalk. She was fully dressed, her cheeks noticeably hollow and her expression strained and apprehensive.
Birds are like humans, and people are like birds. They are smart and stupid. They are nice and ugly. They are full and hungry. They are delicate and predatory. somethey are singing others are shouting. People like birds can fly.
I have travelled to Venice to photograph some of the iconic churches, to Abu Dhabi and Istanbul to photograph iconic mosques and to India and Nepal to photograph the key four places of the life of Buddha Shakyamuni
Between earth and air is a photographic-philosophic debate about the liquid room that divides the solide underground from the air. A silent space where the vertical growths of the plants crosses the horizontal flow of the water.
Yamal, in the language of the indigenous Nenets who inhabit this land, means “the end of the world”; It is a remote, windswept place, characterized by permafrost, by lakes and rivers and is the land of reindeer breeders for over a thousand years.
For several years my study has been the history of my family: from generations that lived in the XIX century to our time. By making this project, I began to realize how a small story of one family, could be the history of millions of others.
These works can especially focus on texture and its inherent emotional qualities, the way a visual pattern can intrigue, repulse, stimulate. But interestingly, in this series, you will find a shift in focus from that sharp clarity to a greater ambiguity
The song “road to nowhere” from the 80’s band the Talking Heads comes to my mind as the world becomes more cynical, less connected and a more dangerous place to live in. Extremism fills up the spiritual void after decades of unchecked consumerism and glorified individualism. Believing in something greater than oneself is being replaced by a global Facebook network of virtual connections, reprogramming our collective consciousness, shaping our behaviour on what is wrong, right,…
I was 17 years old when I travelled the first time with my camera through east Africa. As a visitor who comes from a completely different cultural background, I was fascinated by such an archaic way of life that I had the luck to discover at my journey.
Tina is a long-term photographic project, an image story that focuses on Alzheime pathology, the loneliness and lack of structures and assistance. Tina is 80 years old, she lives alone and she has Alzheimer’s disease.
It sets out to document that euthanasia, contrary to suicide, is not triggered by a severe depressive state. It is a conscious decision and a deeply human journey where the dichotomy of right and wrong must make way for compassion and hope.
“Mysterious people” explores the tension in our curious reality. The moments when we find ourselves looking and looking again, maybe even asking, “Did that just happen?” “What did I just see?” Or maybe even, “Did the camera see something that I didn’t?”
I have been practising photo since 1993, the year when I discovered San Francisco, its tramcars and hip hop culture. The town appealed to me as much as in my memory of the film Bullit, I’d seen a few years before.
Iranian hip-hop culture traces back to 1990s. Orinally rap artists were aimed at politics and social life. Pretty soon it resulted in stern measures and the following government control. Today anyone bringing the politics in their texts lives outsie Iran.
When I mentioned to a fellow photographer that I had booked my accommodation at Blackpool’s Grand Metropole Hotel, he casually replied, “La grande dame from St. Petersburg is visiting Blackpool for an afternoon chat with the seagulls.”
Night after night, I take my compact camera, I hold it at arm’s length and I sink in the dark bars, in the infamous perfumes of the street, I seek the fragments of the bodies, the frailties, the hopes, the sounds of the glasses that we drink.
The most compelling lies we tell ourselves are made up almost entirely of the truth.This is the third in an ongoing series of photographic short stories that explore the deeply personal space between what is known and what is felt
‘Liminality’ series was taken during the ‘Integral Lens’ 5-month photographic journey in United States sponsored by the Fulbright Artist Scholarship for a multi-perspectival study of architectural photography.
In the same way my profession of Architect allows me to plunge the visitors by confronting them with powerful, thick, high walls, or with heavy, dark atmospheres; I like images that transport people, which open the doors of another world.
This project is based on a miscellany of photos that I have been collecting during my travels to India, Morocco, China, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Burma and Romania. A selection of individual images that are not interconnected and in which I show characters
Beauty is a relative concept that means something different to all of us. From my point of view, beauty means grace, modesty, sincerity and spirituality. Nothing to do with our appearance. Beauty does not need anything.
In States of Grace, I illuminate beauty amidst the chaos. I’m calmed by the simplicity of a graceful line and the stillness of the suspended moment and compelled to share an impression of the serenity I find there.
More than anything Street Photography is an attitude, it is an openness to being amazed by what comes your way, it is unlearning the habit of categorizing and dismissi the everyday as being ‘just the everyday’ and beginning to recognize that extraordinary
