Her works have been exhibited on numerous group exhibitions (among which ‘’Dissociation’’, ‘’Gloria Photo Talent Campus’’, with Peter Lindbergh as one of the jurors; ‘’Rovinj Photodays’’, where she won the award for the diptych Concept) and she participated in a number of international art workshops (Hidden Live(r)s of Venice (Venice, 2011, men- tor Rajko Grlić), Mapping Komiža Narratives (Komiža, 2013), Triangel (Bentlage, 2014) and Fotosofia (Terme Tuhelj, 2015).The meeting point of all visual disciplines she works in was in her final thesis, a magazine about the correla- tion between the media and society with an emphasis on beauty.
Hyung Sun Kim | Haenyeo | Haenyeo are the Korean female divers who harvest seafood by diving into the ocean without diving equipment or breathing apparatus. The Haenyeo culture is Korea’s unique indigenous cultural heritage that has a history that goes back to the primitive age when people began to dive for food in the sea. Most Haenyeo reside in Jeju Island nowadays, located in the southern end of Korean peninsula, and these women, being the primary providers of their families, have formed the familial, cultural, and essential core of the entire island. Haenyeo knows that the sea is a subject to be tendered and preserved, instead of being mass harvested.The knowledge and wisdom they obtained has been passed down to future generations. They accumulated harvesting skills and marine knowledge by adapting to the ocean environment. They are also known as ‘Eco-Feminists’ because they played a major role in supporting the family and formed a powerful female community.The diving practice seems to have begun before the period of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, judging from the fact that Jeju had a record of contributing pearls to the King. Jeju topography written by Lee Gun in 1629 recorded that Haenyeo harvested abalones and further records of Haenyeo exist in the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty and they have also been noted in literature since 1105.

Yulia Artemyeva | One soul in two bodies | She was born in Gorky (Nizhny Novgorod) in 1983. She completed a degree in Economics in 2006. In 2010, she was awarded a qualification in Art Photography by the Academy of International Collaboration in Moscow.In 2015, she received the title of Excellence Artist of FIAP (EFI- AP) from The International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP, France).

The presence of an animal in the portrait of a person is one of the most popular ways of depicting and sometimes contrasting with how the viewer percepts it. A classical approach is to depict a commander mounted on horseback in a ceremonial portrait, or a bird as a symbol of soul in children’s ceremonial portraits of the Renaissance. At present, this approach is being developed within the genre of psychological art-portrait.
Riccardo Magherini | BKK Series | Sometimes that sense of estrangement that catches you when you are far away from home, in a new and unknown place, among people who do not speak your language and signs that you do not understand, can be a precious source of creativity and inspiration.Riccardo Magherini, an Italian awarded photographer, plays with that feeling letting himself wandering with.His unique street photography style starts with faces and stories, when one stands out to him.He collects pictures all around that moment, which talk about it. Then shots are composed and merged, ‘shaped’ to tell that story, to suggest the feeling of that moment.Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo, Lisbon: his works, shot in the great metropo- lises of the world, sublime street life, recreating sensations through the time and space overlapping.In his photographs a strong focus point grasp the look from getting lost, allowing us to dive between volumes, shapes and situations. BKK, his last series, bring us through the streets of Bangkok, amongst the crowd, the smoke, the food, the marketplaces.
Thomas Alleman | Sunshine & Noir : Photographs of Los Angeles | I began making “urban landscapes” with a medium-format Holga—a $30 plastic camera—in September of 2001, in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. My heart was shattered then; I was horrified and bewildered by the TV images of those planes, and the newspaper stories that followed, and I was alienated from hope. My magazine career, which depended on the attention of New York photo editors, was momentarily stalled: they had their eyes on Ground Zero and the war of reprisal in Afghanistan, and were indifferent, of course, to the California surfers and CEOs and schoolteachers I’d been photographing for them. In that upside down time, I truly had nothing better to do than walk all day, every day, in Los Angeles’ many strange neighborhoods, searching the blight for pictures that embodied my grief, and, in a nihilistic mood, The Holga’s many laughable failures are well known and all-encompassing: focus, exposure and parallax are effectively uncontrollable, and the plastic lens is always aberrant, cloudy and vignetted. Much to my surprise, however, the freaky results of that technical dysfunction resembled precisely the pictures I’d been dreaming of in those nightmare days.
