I try to keep my photography very simple. Natural light, a lot of footwork,
and dedication are the key elements. When people ask me how I get such
intimate portraits I can only explain it by having a great respect for
the people that I meet. Somehow, I believe that feeling comes out in what
you see. [...]
The 8th of March is celebrated the International Day of Women.
In this day, in 1857, the textile female workers of a plant in New
Iorque were on strike, having occupied the plant, to revindicate
the reduction of a schedule of 16 hours per day for 10 hours. These
workers who, in its 16 hours, received less than a third of a man's
wage, were closed in the plant where, meanwhile, broke out a fire,
and about 130 women died burnt. In 1910, in an women's international
conference carried out in Denmark, it was determined, in homage
to those women, to celebrate the 8th March as the "International
Day of Women".
The subject of this month was Women.
We'd like photos of how you see women in today's society.
Congratulations to Wim Jenniskens, The Netherlands.
Thank you for all the participations..
Many faces arm the city. From the great
aired avenues, to the pressed alleys and unskilful side streets.
The new emerges from the old and leaves it, many times, disfigured.
The movement of the population, and the outskirts, in the rush hours
leaves it without breath. It extends itself, strains its tentacles
to the outskirts where it plants beds for the workers that return
to it every day. The ambient and social pressure in the cities grows
each day. The lack of spaces in its interior leaves it without many
solutions. It's in this intricate and cadenced context that the
people pass, live, blossom. And with them city itself.
Show what you see in the cities.
Results will show on the next newsletter and be published on the
site. See how to participate >>>.
Edinger turned his lens towards streets without charism
as well as landmarks transformed into manhattian logotypes, from the Statue
of Liberty to the Central Park and the Central Grand Station. The strangeness
effect follows all the images of this book. The uncommon seems here catchable
in each corner [...]
"In the Getsemani, Jesus, in prayer, perceives the
entire conclusion from the great drama of Passion: «My soul is in
a death sadness. Stay here and watch with me». Jesus needs company
and solidarity, but he stays alone. Everyone sleeps"
> "Via Crucis" Easter Procession in Spain
With the arrival of spring comes Easter week. It has centuries
of history behind it and is one of Spain's most authentic and emotive
celebrations. The streets of the vast majority of Spain's cities, towns
and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining
grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death.
