Invasivo, the photographic project by Samm Escobar

Invasivo, the photographic project by Samm Escobar

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Photography

For decades tourism in Mexico has concentrated on the coasts overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, but in recent years even the part of the Pacific Ocean is experiencing rediscovery. Tourism, however, does not always bring with it positive changes, for example, the influx of a large number of people can end up ruining and spoiling places lost and where nature still dominates the rest. It is precisely the theme of man’s impact on the environment that is at the center of Samm Escobar‘s artistic research and his photographic project Invasivo

Samm Escobar’s shots show the beaches of Puerto Escondido, real hidden paradises, contaminated by huge luminous signs with the words “Motel”, “Park”, “Bar”, digitally added. 

The photographer wants to raise public awareness of the climate crisis, environmental pollution, problems that if not addressed in a short time will have irreversible effects on our planet. 

In our gallery you can find the shots of Invasivo, to discover other works by Samm Escobar follow him on Instagram

Beyond fashion, Zoë Ghertner’s photographs

Beyond fashion, Zoë Ghertner’s photographs

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Photography

Los Angeles-based photographer Zoë Ghertner has quickly established herself as one of the world’s leading fashion photographers. Her look is very particular, the artist is able to incorporate in the fashion landscape anything that is in front of her eyes: from an ice cream that falls to the ground, to a bale of hay.

Zoë Ghertner has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion, including Chanel, Dior and Hermès, as well as with the most famous fashion magazines in the world, creating the covers of i-D Magazine and The Gentlewoman, as well as portraits of Hollywood stars for Vogue.

Elegance has always been part of her cultural background, after the transition from the study of dance to the fine arts, Ghertner’s photographic career began with still life, and then developed in the fashion field.

Minimalism and compositional harmony make her images appear extremely spontaneous and natural, capable of conveying emotions that conceive fashion as an integral part of a global vision, not only beautiful to look at, but also intimate and strongly communicative.

IG profile’s poetry by @theadventuresofastrangesoul

IG profile’s poetry by @theadventuresofastrangesoul

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Photography

Starry skies and many dreams are what characterizes the profile Instagram @theadventuresofastrangesoul. There is so much beauty before our eyes and this strange soul likes to capture it, offering its thirty-three thousand followers a fragment of this global dream every day.

The scenes are almost all captured and designed to shine at night, because at night, you know, things always appear different as they emerge from the darkness. The feed is characterized by yellow tones, which stand out against a turquoise background: this color correction has become the trademark of @theadventuresofastrangesoul’s images.

Two hands touching each other, a carousel spinning madly, that moment when you look out the window and think: here everything is magic, everything is part of the artist’s poetic over-emphasis.

So stop for a moment, take a look at Instagram and daydream with us.

Stories in the photographs of Cian Oba-Smith

Stories in the photographs of Cian Oba-Smith

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Photography

Cian Oba-Smith is a London-based photographer who has focused his artistic research on the relationship between the subjects he loves to capture and their places of belonging. Through his sophisticated and never artificial style, the artist tells the stories of those who live in often forgotten communities, such as the African-American knights of Philadelphia and the rapidly depleting community of Tory Island.

While claiming to be attracted to themes that concern him personally, he has often shot outside the UK, in countries as far away as China, where he has tried to give a visual response to the social issues that characterize the world in which we live.

“I think the difficulty of modern culture is that photography is spread and consumed at such a fast pace that it is difficult to distinguish between a real story and a built one”.

The dialogue with these realities is fundamental to get to have quality shots, which want to be beautiful to look at, but especially interesting to discover.

Justin Dingwall, when diversity is a value

Justin Dingwall, when diversity is a value

Claudia Fuggetti · 4 months ago · Photography

South African photographer and visual artist Justin Dingwall constructs images with a strong visual impact, capable of immediately capturing the attention of the viewer. Through well-studied form and composition, all images explore a wide range of important themes, from xenophobia in South Africa to the obsolete stereotypes of albinism.

Justin Dingwall has always been concerned with minorities and the “different”, as in his 2016 Albus series, in which he questions our understanding of albino beauty.

A Seat at the Table is the name of another sequence of images that creatively exploit everyday objects. The model of the series, Moostapha, is affected by vitiligo, a condition that is not hidden, but exalted.

In Fly by Night, the artist uses the fairy tale of the Ugly Duckling to comment on the issue of xenophobia in South Africa. Dingwall transposes this metaphor into his photographic series, using a real black swan. His imagination becomes an active part in the transposition of complex themes and they want to direct the public in the right direction, which one?

The one who sees diversity as a value.

It is no coincidence that the artist has repeatedly stated that his work is not about race, politics or fashion, but about perception and “what we subjectively perceive as beautiful”.
