In 2011 Alessandro decided to buy an old (but super well constructed) motorhome, Hymer 1983 and move it along the south coast of Portugal in some of his favorite places along the european coast. He did that to be able to realise his personal photography project. This is a small series of images Alessandro took when going to bed over the course of 2013.
In the autumn of 1985, a series of brutal robberies and murders were committed. ‘The Gang of Nivelles’ were known for being heavily armed and not being so interested in the loot. In total, 28 victims died because of the gang. The most curious part in this case: in spite of a thorough police investigation (a file of almost three million pages), found evidence and witness accounts, the criminals were never busted. Jan Rosseel, a victims’ son, remained with questions. These dark shots are based on some of the clues that Rosseel has found over the years.

Cristophe Jacrot is a French photographer who is fascinated by skywater. Drops of rain on windows or rain falling on the ground turns into art when Jacrot has his camera at hand. The raindrops on a window makes bright colors blur and reflect in a special way.
Secret tip from us: hold your eyelashes against each other, it’s like you’re looking at a painting. Cool.
Erosion is a natural process that mankind can not stop. In the history of the Holderness coast (North East England) many villages have vanished in the sea. Neil A. White is fascinated by how inhabitants stay put untill the sea literally eats their backyard. As a frequent visitor of the coastline, White sees it changing right before his eyes. He states: “This really does bring the speed of erosion into reality”.
For Ben Roberts latest series ‘Amazon Unpacked’ he was sent on assignment by the Financial Times Weekend Magazine to photograph people and places in and around Rugeley, UK. As a former coal mining town, Rugeley has struggled during the current recession, with high unemployment being a particular problem. The arrival of Amazon to occupy a huge warehouse in the town was originally seen as being a boost to the local economy, but has it turned out that way?
Jules Vincent is a photographer who points his camera towards buildings and other architectural objects. His main focusses are lines and reflections. The angle of the shots pull the objects out of their surroundings. This makes it hard to see the context of the shot, which is interesting.
Moving a capital city is an important decision. In 1998, Kazakhstan unveiled its new capital and Almaty lost its status to Astana, located 1300 kilometers up North.
As the world’s most recent capital city after Pyinmana (Myanmar), Astana is also the symbol of a new start, a unique initiative in the Post-Soviet region. Fabrice Fouillet’s project ‘Eurasism’ depicts a landscape coined by old Soviet architecture and new developing modern buildings.
Lars Focke is a freelance UX designer from Hamburg, Germany and passionate about photography and graphic design. Being only a parttime photographer, Focke is extraordinary good. For this series he photographed the Hamburg Messe, a congress and fair center. Not particularly interesting at first sight, but Focke finds lines and forms nobody else sees.
Benedict Morgan had the idea for his Wrapping Paper series some time before actually executing it. When camouflaging an object the shape and outlines must be retained in order for the viewer to recognize it, otherwise it would just simply blend in with the background and disappear.
Inside the complexity of the city, Maarten van Schaik looks for ‘black holes’ or ‘non-places’, where color, light, materials, lines and strange objects play together inside the frame of his camera. As he describes himself: “things and places that remain unnoticed in our hectic, everyday lives”. Car Nudes is a project that embodies the ‘non-places’ van Schaik sees. Smart reflections play a big role in these photographs.
