chiusodidomenica, the Instagram profile of the vintage signs

chiusodidomenica, the Instagram profile of the vintage signs

Giulia Pacciardi · 7 months ago · Photography

Despite the race to the “I have it newest“, what really fascinates is the experience, anything that has something to tell.
The broken alley, the mailbox that hangs on the wall by some miracle, the table of the restaurant where, before you, have already eaten in thousands. All those things that show the signs of time and people.
Just like for postisinceri, the Instagram profile that opens our eyes to the Milan of the old restaurants and its owners, even chiusodidomenica gives the same effect.

Old Italian shop signs, only posted on Sundays.

Says the bio of this profile and the contents of the feed do not betray our expectations.
Just a series of old signs, nothing to do with the neon design we’ve become accustomed to, and closed shutters.
Because yes, even here they have not told us a lie, they publish pictures only on Sundays and on Sundays the old Valigeria Giannina is closed.
And, like her, even the Cristalliere Ritorno, the Parrucchiera per Signora Adriana, even the Rosticceria Fontana and the Ripara Scarpe.

All places that, by now, live a life apart from everything that is comfortable to us, open 24 hours a day, easy and at hand.
The usual places where you call the owner by his name and you do not forget to ask him how was his day.

Retro Couples, the Instagram profile that makes you fall in love

Retro Couples, the Instagram profile that makes you fall in love

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Photography

All you need is love, of course, especially in tough times like these. Did we love each other more in the past? Could it work? These are the questions that arise when you look at the Instagram Retro Couples profile, which has a following of over 73,000 romantics.

It’s a collection of images that have a single glue: love. The origin of these photographs is really disparate: they go from art history, to photography, to cinema, up to the icons of rock.

In short, what does it matter how? The important thing is to fall in love, at least with films, at least with a photograph…at least with art.

Have a look at the Instagram profile here.

Love is Love: Sara Lorusso immortalizes love in its intimacy

Love is Love: Sara Lorusso immortalizes love in its intimacy

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Photography

For this Pride Month 2019, the events that have tinted the streets of our cities with the colors of the rainbow, have been supported by dozens and dozens of artists who have made universal love and without discrimination the main theme of many of their works. Not being able to write about all of them, we chose one. Sara Lorusso, an Italian photographer we have already had the pleasure of talking about, has created a photographic project called Love is Love and as its subject, she has chosen some homosexual couples and has photographed them inside the intimacy of their bedrooms. 

Before the actual shots Sara met the couples, chatted with them and started to get to know them better. Yes, before the shots Sara had not met any of her subjects. This aspect covered the whole project with a documentary atmosphere, in which the important thing was not only the final result, but the whole process, from the announcement of the internet to find the couples to their selection, from the first photographic session, to the story of their story. 

With the simplicity and naturalness that have always distinguished the photos of Sara Lorusso, Love is Love tells the story of the young Italian LGBTQ+ couples.

Images from the future by Jingran Zhang

Images from the future by Jingran Zhang

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Photography

As if they had come out of Matrix, Jingran Zhang‘s images are a breath of fresh air in the murky pre-packaged world of Instagram, where several photographic trends have spread like wildfire in recent times. Just think of the pastel starry skies, the portraits with the “soap and water” mood or the improbable architectures.

Cameras pointed at each other, robots, Blade Runner-style androgynous bodies and strange mutant characters similar to aliens invade the artist’s feed, which translates reality with an almost disturbing and destabilizing aesthetic, which captures and attracts at the same time.

Are we really becoming like the screens of our mobile phones? Each character appears indirectly in the photo: he hides his face, uses sunglasses, is turned from behind. All these human figures don’t seem so much human, but machines without identity.

The same cannot be said of these images, which instead show a great personality projected towards the future in a fresh and innovative way, even if not without visual references.

Take a look at Jingran’s Instagram profile here.

Feridun Akgüngör takes the Minimal Pure series of photographs

Feridun Akgüngör takes the Minimal Pure series of photographs

Collater.al Contributors · 7 months ago · Photography

Feridun Akgüngör is a young artist and art director from Istanbul. He has devoted himself to a number of works including Minimal Pure, which consists of a series of photographs depicting cuts in architecture and making them minimal. The background is dominated by a completely clear and lively sky.

Only a few distant elements, such as clouds, an airplane or the flight of a bird, offer a minimum of movement that breaks the tranquility of these clean and relaxing photos. The artist helps himself with the use of software with which he retouches his photos for a truer and more real result, making the colors less real but of great effect. The blue, that changes from water green to yellow, contrasting with the orange, white and red of the architectures.

The Minimal Pure series evokes moments of rest, where more than in a photo, the moment is still in time and gives peace to the senses.
