Butterfly Wings, Chris Perani’s macro photography

Butterfly Wings, Chris Perani’s macro photography

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Photography

Personally, the photographs I like the most are those that show distant lands and places, panoramas that are not part of my everyday life, faces that reflect distant cultures and ethnic groups, but Chris Perani‘s macro photographs have managed to make me change my mind. The shots from his Butterfly Wings series capture microscopic details of dozens of different butterflies. 

Thanks to macro photography Chris can show us the thousands of shades, hairs, and scales that hide on the wings, or rather, that we can not see with the naked eye.

The extraordinary result perfectly reflects a work that requires a long preparation and that makes the most of the possibilities offered by the camera.

Butterfly Wings is just one of the fantastic series created by Chris Perani, to see them go on his website or on his Instagram profile.

Margins Of Excess, America seen by Max Pinckers

Margins Of Excess, America seen by Max Pinckers

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Belgian photographer Max Pinckers in his new documentary project “Margins Of Excess” presents a series of photographs in which the truth does not always correspond to reality. The work tells the lives of six individuals who became famous and known to the American press, for various disconcerting circumstances.

Among the characters, we find Rachel Dolezal, who pretended to be an African-American woman to take advantage of economic benefits and Herman Rosenblat who invented having survived the Holocaust, with a touching love affair with a girl met on opposite sides of the enclosure of the concentration camp.

What the protagonists of the book Pinckers share are an undeniable talent for the art of deception and a passion for the subversion of the “truth”. Pinckers has been fascinated by these characters, making them the favorite subjects of his photo book, is the truth really what we hear? The photographer states that:

“A more intricate view of our world, which takes into account the subjective and fictitious nature of the categories”.

In an era where truth is apparently a flexible commodity, the book aims to “pierce through the noise, buzz, pulp, lies, dreams, paranoia, cynicism and laziness and to embrace ‘reality’ in all its complexity”.

Ali Al Shehabi, a new way of looking at the world

Ali Al Shehabi, a new way of looking at the world

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Ali Al Shehabi is a visual artist born in Bahrain and raised in Dubai, he began to explore the world of photography in the Summer of 2006 and since then, he hasn’t abandoned it anymore. The approach to this artistic language occurred after a serious accident left him handicapped, radically changing his life.

During his recovery, he spent his time surfing the internet and finding a community of inspiring photographers, which motivate him to deepen this passion. Unwilling to invest his money in a digital camera, Ali decides to reuse his mother’s film machine. His life changes again, when in 2016 he moved to Tokyo to study art and later, in 2017, he moved to Dubai to study photography.

His look is original, interesting and strongly communicative; it really seems that Ali in photography has found a new reason for living and a new way of looking at the world. Take a look at our gallery and Instagram profile.

Nightshift, tales of nightlife in Shanghai

Nightshift, tales of nightlife in Shanghai

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Photography

Photographer Florian Mueller has created a project entirely based on nightlife in Shanghai, called Nightshift; in particular, the one concerning the kiosks and stalls open until late at night. Like many projects, also for Florian was born by chance, while he was wandering the streets of the city and came across these mysterious shops that have fascinated him to carry out an entire project about it.

In fact, this night reality shows another face of Shanghai, able to create a suggestive atmosphere made of lights emanating from after-hours stalls, colors and people who live at night, as in Cashback.

Flowers, drinks, cell phone cases, and ripe citrus fruits are just some of the illuminated objects that appear in Florian’s work. You can see other images taken from Nightshift on the website you find here.
