Rooms for Voices

Rooms for Voices is a new project by filmmaker Luca Sironi. Meeting rooms, especially those with a certain greatness, seem to hold the echoes of all the words spoken over the years. You can’t help but acknowledge the feeling that potentially life-changing decisions have been made here when you look at them.
Luca Sironi is a Milan-based photographer interested in the connection between places and memory, particularly in relation to the memories that images can hide. His work focusses on elements usually considered insignificant or not photographically relevant.

Curves

Curves – Soulful Driving is a high-quality magazine, produced with love and aimed to be read by all who drive, bike or cycle with passion and seek the joy and adventure of the open road. It is a magazine for those for whom the planning of a journey already is a celebration. They will spot some famous curves like the Col D’Izouard and Galibier amongst others. Porsche recognized these enthusiasts and pushed the project with a helicopter and some cars for more epic shots in Curves Magazine. Bogner also made the book ‘Escapes, dream routes in the Alps’ as a personal project.

Chinatown

Brooklyn-based French photographer Franck Bohbot has a new series that captures the dreamy beauty of New York City’s Chinatown. Simply titled ‘Chinatown’, his photographs of its deserted streets and alleys, shuttered stores and towering high-rise buildings have a gauzy, misty feel that will make you see one of Manhattan’s most distinctive ethnic enclaves in a different light. Taken at night, they avoid the clichéd daytime shots of crowded pavements and bustling activity that comes to mind when you think of the place.

Geometrie

A context which the shapes become a pretext for exploration of space, freeing itself from its real picture, to make it more emotionally relevant. The minimal geometry, shadows and colors intersect between reality and absence, visually decontextualized from initial aesthetics. In this way, the following photographs describe a “non-place”, dematerialized by its own matter.

Earthglance

Taking shots with Google Earth and putting them online has been done multiple times. Earthglance takes the prize though. The execution in this compilation of earth screenshots is beyond belief. With some pictures it’s hard to say what you’re looking at. You’re staring down at airports, icy mountains and salt fields from a perpective where some context can be missed. Take your time to scroll through 30+ pages of high-res jaw droppers via the link. Earth is beautiful.

The Third Day

Henrik Kohler went on a quest to the sources of our food. The german photographer visited areas in Spain, Holland, Germany and the United States where standardized products flourish under industrial conditions. With solely (cost)efficiency in mind, one of the involved parties will always be the victim. Whether that be the animal, plant or human. Someone has to pay for this way of production. Can we still call these products of nature when we control so many factors in the process?

Ecce Homo

In the photo series Ecce Homo Berlin-based photographer Evelyn Bencicova shot naked bodies in a quite artistic way. Ecce Homo, Latin for “behold the man”, is a common artistic motif with Biblical origins that has since been expanded to include depictions of violence and war.

Coal Mining

Bernhard Lang is a German photographer who uses various techniques. One of the most astounding must be the aerial photography he does. His most recent series is one on coal mining. Lang tries to show us how mankind knowingly reshapes earth to improve their lives. On a more positive note: it’s wonderful to see the layering of our soil in one shot. The crane installations act as main characters in this silent series.

Salt

Emma Phillips’ photographs of a salt mine in the Nullarbor Plain of Western Australia make the familiar look otherworldly. The landscapes, featuring towering pyramids of white in muted tones, are studies in simplicity and abstraction. She likes pictures with not much in them and not too many distractions. Phillips came across the salt mine by chance but immediately saw an opportunity for a series.

Relics of Technology

The seed for the Relics of Technology project started when Jim found a brick cell phone at a thrift store. Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing his attention. Most of the technology have now been downsized to fit in the palm of our hand. These photos are reminders that progress had a price and our efforts have an expiration date.

Intolerable Beauty

Exploring the darker sides of his home country, Chris Jordan found a strange form of beauty in the drain of mass consumption. Guilty as everyone, he is grasped by these reflections of modern society. “Collectively we are committing a vast and unsustainable act of taking, but we each are anonymous and no one is in charge or accountable for the consequences.”

Skymetric

The word skymetric is a construction composed by: sky and -metric (geometric). The subject highlights the decontextualization of places and architectural spaces in order to alter the natural structure. These places considered have in common the fact to be all completely square, regular and schematic, so achieving geometric shots in a minimalist context, where the simplicity and cleanliness reign supreme.
