The Missing Whole by Dafna Tour

My photographs present the human body, with an emphasis on functional body cavities (holes), and their changes as far as significance, functionality and appearance over time.

My photographs present the human body, with an emphasis on functional body cavities (holes), and their changes as far as significance, functionality and appearance over time.

The body cavities are the first to “take in” our life experiences. They are a constant reminder of the changes we live through, and they change with us.We live in an era of rapid changes, and often have the tendency to try to linger, ignore or repress these changes. We would sometimes like to reverse nature, and keep the holes at their original state and function.My photographs present a more flexible interpretation and perception of body parts, using everyday materials. The photographs reflect a positive and humoristic approach to the human body, and were conceived during my first year of being a parent, when humor helped me in overcoming the irrational and impossible yearning for physiological perfection.

A Himalayan Journey By Abhijit Bose

The beauty of The Himalayan Region is its color and mood. I explored almost every season and made trips towards Terrain Region.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.
Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.
