Jakarta is one of the biggest and fastest growing cities in the world with over thirty million people living in its greater metropolitan area.

What started as a totally blank page became a love affair. I fell head over heals in love with the place. The kindness and generosity of the people was so genuine and their pride as Dagestani people was admirable. So I guess these images whilst beginning as images of discovery became images of a love affair with a new place. Dagestan by Luke Duggleby (2/4)

I have always been fascinated by photography and have practiced it taking photos during my trips abroad. Recently after completing my career as a congress organizer first and teacher of English later I decided to study photography in a more organized and systematic way. Therefore I am a mature photographer.  In my first work I followed the lesson of the great Italian photographer Gabriele Basilico whose style and purity of vision of cities and urban territories I have always admired.  ALMOST…

Rosen's plan could ease bankruptcy pain

What I find interesting when looking at the work of other photographers is simplicity originality (this does not mean a new subject matter but a different and personal way to interpret it) and good communication. Work that is beautiful but only centered on technical skills alone would most likely not capture my attention. And as a personal choice I do seem to gravitate to work that has a strong sociological content especially regarding urban studies geography architecture and cities in…

My main sources of inspiration come from American photographers such as Robert Frank Stephen Shore Richard Misrach and Alec Soth to name a few. Also I love the composition and the unique atmosphere of Gregory Crewdsons work and I learned a lot from the Düsseldorf school following the rules of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Finally my list wouldnt be complete without Luigi Ghirri one of the masters of Italian and international photography.  Lay Off by Benedetta Ristori [4|4]  #photography…

These photographs are a meditation on memory decay and beauty. What I learned is the essence of the soul of Naples is the quiet beauty of neglect. The poetics of empty spaces abandoned places and everyday weathered objects are elevated to powerful time-posts much like the ancient ruins of Antiquity. Everywhere decay is the mark of time on things establishing a subtle relationship between time and beauty mediated by memory.  Memory Decay Beauty by Gina Costa. Interview by Cary Benbow (2/4)…

Then I started to get into the task to look around with keener eyes and to discover unexpected aspects of the city. I tried to photograph Bari with a sort of architectural approach: precise perspectives converging lined directing the eye clean and neat framing. I sort of wanted to give these shabby areas a kind of dignity by focusing on the features of its buildings and urban territory. That was the difficult part but the guidance of my mentor and his support came to my rescue: his…

The Factory still has the poetic manner of capturing subject matter. However in these photographs Enzo is at a cooler remove of the images he captures. In this body of work Enzo visually comments on how the factory buildings cement highways and bridges have displaced and replaced the fertile countryside with metal and concrete; the new visual images of our time and place. This series is a lament an elegy to the lost natural countryside that was sacrificed for the concrete edifices that have…

Erislandy sets food on the edges for his pigeons. The crumbling building in the background is occupied and home to many families including children. Most buildings in Havana are in ruin but the government refuses to help these families move to a safer location or fix their homes. I met a woman in one of these half-fallen building who worries every day that the building will collapse on her and her children. Theyve tried to get help from the government but their request has been ignored. I…

The Prevailing Winds of Hills and Heritage - Photographs and text by Aaron Blum

I worked slowly only photographing the mall late in the day or early in the morning and only setting up outside a couple store shots per session. Im curious about the passage of time and the effects that time has on people and spaces. I think of photography as the loners medium- its a way for me to slow down and remove myself from my environment.  The Final Days of Metcalf South by Max Mikulecky (5/5)  #photography #documentary

I began to explore this new subject matter after my exploration of my land and my mountains (the Appennino Reggiano ). What I seem more and more to see was the shortage of peasants for years. The rural life and its people of the mountain were slowly disappearing. The call was strong a new job that required less physical effort and was more profitable; A new way of working conception was born: THE FACTORY.  So men without perhaps even realizing it began to abandon his connection with the…

15m2 of freedom is a series that I made in my 3rd year of studying Documentary Photography at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. In this year every student does their own project within a certain set theme. This year it was Endless Possibilities. It immediately made me think of my best friend that got her truck drivers license bought a truck and made it into a mobile home moved out of her house quit her job and started to travel around in her truck. Whenever she was in The Netherlands…

In conversation the morning we met in the beautiful Piazza Fontanese in Reggio Emilia for coffee Enzo told me his work always reflects his desire to find his soul while trying to slow down the process of seeing life as it races by us. In quiet solitude we can find ourselves and meaning. This series of photographs depicts eerily quiet spaces devoid of life with the natural world just beyond reach. The slightly unsettling somewhat conceptual environments Enzo creates here reflect his sense of…
