Changes are still at a very early stage and are different from one favela to the other, but there are some that today can be considered a fair place to live. More….
Anchors by Yulia Artemyeva
While working on this project, I was looking at reasons why people choose to stay in bed while the society requires them to be active from morning till night, unless they get sick, either physically or emotionally. All the characters of the shooting are healthy and socially active; nevertheless their resting place is where sacred meanings are concentrated for them. More….

Purtraits – Pure portraits by Danny Van der Elst
Contrary to commercial photographers, I am not looking for perfect images. Rather than showing my photoshop skills, I choose to show genuine people with real feelings. For me, an image needs at least two things. Genuine emotion and natural light. This is a selection of pure portraits. More….
Nomads by Darren Lewey
At 2500 metres: an appreciation of female beauty.Nomads in Morocco number around 5000 and are rapidly dwindling. The lure of education for their children and work in towns and cities for young males means the nomadic way of life is becoming less practicable. The realisation that educating children can alleviate future hardships has prompted the need to find a more permanent homestead. For many, it’s the only life and work they know. More….

For generations, these tribes have been shielded from the modern world in a place that is still raw, natural, and completely timeless. More….
