Africa by Timo Heiny
I try to hold tight on my photographs what I felt during my journeys, the intuition of a nativeness. Maybe it is the mystical idea from the beginning of humans, an original relationship between human and nature, what I always searched for and I was attached about.I don’t want to photography only in a documental way, neither an aesthetic orchestration; my photographs should show the fascination for a region which seams to me in opposite to our daily life. As well as it will be a sculptural contemporary document, because many of these cultures will disappear in the turbulences of our time. More….
Embryo by Federico Massimiliano Mozzano
Embryo is the choice between freedom and constraint, action and reaction.We are born naked and we dress experiences, positive and negative. Remain still and watch or be guided conditions our behavior, but it doesn’t develop it.Embryo is a metaphor, my reflection on human nature, bodies grown physically, but not yet completely independent; so there is’ who decides to rebel trying to rise to the surface, those who surrender dropping to the bottom, there are the undecided waiting to be convinced and those who remain comfortably still waiting for all steps.

60s NYC by Michael Seif
In the 1960s I lived and worked in New York City, carried my camera everywhere, and photographed every chance I had – day and night, above ground and in the subways.The camera forced me to look, and to actually see.

Some photos were candid, as I captured subjects in a fraction of a second.I asked other subjects for permission to photograph them, some as solo portraits, others as groups. More….
Merhaba Istanbul by Ying Tang
Istanbul is an old city which literally lies on two continents: Asia and Europe. People like to call it the place where East meets West. Istanbul combines the best of traditional and modern life all in one. The call to prayer echoes five times per day in this city that is 99% Islamic. Yet the city retains its modern and shining colorful neon lights. This is a city which you will never feel to be foreign. I have visited this city twice in the last few years. I did not stay that long either time, but each time I got a nice cup of tea from a local to welcome me and to get to know me. This city is bursting with charm and warmth. More….
Pocket Beach by Salvatore Matarazzo
A beach long 2,5 Km in Marina Di Massa, flanked to historical buildings, dating back to the Fascist period, that still at a distance of years, affect the territory and vacationers who frequent the beach.The territory is varied and surreal, you can find the sandy beach the rocks and artificial reefs. The historic buildings surrounding the beach remind me of the 4 ministries of George Orwell’s 1984 novel and those rural beaches, raw from every fringe, leave the tourists stay suspended over time, or as if they were in a kind of fatherland ever existed.

New York by Manuel Armenis
Cities, like people, have a personality. It is this personality that makes them unique and distinguishable. It might help us to read and comprehend a city or we might get challenged, confused or overwhelmed by it.To some cities we are magnetically drawn or attracted due to their personality while others we choose to avoid or might even abhor.So what constitutes the character of a city? How does it manifest? As an urban space a city obviously comprises of streets, buildings, vehicles and objects. But essentially cities are about people. More….
