Born in Milan to a Swiss father and French-Chinese mother, Iris Humm now lives in Barcelona where she works as a photographer, where she is always looking for something to shoot.
Those captured in her shots are not extraordinary subjects, on the contrary, they are scenes of everyday life, moments of sharing, they are the faces of her friends and lunches spent together. What particularly inspires Iris is Barcelona, where the mountains and the sea meet in the unmistakable chessboard formed by streets and buildings and, above all, where the light typical of seaside resorts warms everything, the facades of buildings, nature, making the colors of clothes and skin tones vibrant.
Thus, a warm light, which makes us almost feel at home, as if we had taken these photos ourselves, and moments of banal everyday life transform Iris Humm’s portfolio into her personal photographic diary that she shares especially on Instagram.
Through her shots, Iris shows us her personal vision of the world, which couldn’t be better and of which we would like to be part.
There’s something extraordinarily fascinating about Venice Beach that makes anyone who decides to spend even a single day on it stand out. It will be the colors of the villas that are reflected in the canals, the scent of the ocean carried by the wind and that air of freedom that you breathe and perfectly represented by the endless bike paths that run along the beach and a community that is divided between joggers, those who spend their days skating or those who have made the basketball court their kingdom. It is from the latter that German photographer Maximilian Baier was particularly impressed during one of his trips to Los Angeles.
Thus was born Veniceball, his photographic series that alternates between portraits of street players and match action, all exclusively in black and white. Veniceball is proof that something as simple as three-on-three can become a real spectacle, bringing passers-by and tourists to stop and admire the guys playing for theentire afternoons.

Textures of Iceland, there couldn’t be a better title for Nicholas Aspholm‘s photographic series. Nicholas’s passion for photography began many years ago when he was a child and his parents gave him his first digital camera.
Cultivating this passion over the years, also driven by the desire to turn a hobby into something more, Nicholas devoted himself more and more deeply to photography, starting to travel and developing a personal and recognizable style.
As in most of his works, the subject of Textures of Iceland is the cold and bare landscape offered by the northern countries. In Iceland, nestled between the mountains, the water, and the sea, Nicholas Aspholm’s lens was able to capture the different textures offered by nature, which were then enclosed in an almost monochrome series.
The minimal shots of this project capture the viewer, giving back exactly the sensations one feels when, while uncontaminated nature overlooks man, the only thing one can think of is that there are still places like this.
