Journey of the indian woman by Lopamudra Talukdar
India is a country in a hurry, a country everyone is waking up to and taking notice of. While our scientists are reaching out to the moon our industrialists are taking the world by storm with major acquisitions. But has the core of the country really changed? Or has the chasm between the urban and rural grown wider? Are some age old prejudices still holding India back? What about the women? Well, what about them? Are they on an even keel with their male counterparts? Are they the flag bearers of the modern India we are so proud to project?

Why Drag? by Magnus Hastings
Magnus Hastings is a portrait photographer whose current series of large-scale photographs, and accompanying book, Why Drag?, focuses on the phenomenal artistry and counter-cultural spirit of the international drag scene.Hastings’ confrontational yet deeply beguiling portraits owe as much to his ability to collaborate with the highly individual denizens of a semi-hidden world as they do to his inimiatable eye and technical skills. He calls his approach ‘guerilla photography,’ shooting on the streets, driving around with a queen in his car until they find the perfect spot in which to create a story, using found objects as props.

Chasing Mirrors by Joxe Inazio Kuesta
Many times I read and hear people say that some photographs have souls, that they reflect an essence, that they transmit a purity. And perhaps it is true, because often when I see a photograph taken by me I perceive something that I find difficult to express in words, and that it could well be that soul; but what soul are we talking about? Is it from the soul of the people, from the situations photographed or from my own soul? More….

Collodion Portraiture by James Walker
James hopes simply to change the viewers mind in some way than what it was before they saw the work in a positive meaningful experience. Either to learn, or question something about themselves, in the work or see something to life and the subject that’s new in a way they had not before. To have impact on some ones life in some way is an honor you can’t get from cheap imagery. It takes time to create the work. A critical mindful process not only in it’s analog creation but in the narrative or subconscious serendipity. Of course this is only a dream for him. More….
