The minimalist photography by Jacob Howard

The minimalist photography by Jacob Howard

Giulia Guido · 5 months ago · Photography

Beauty can be found anywhere, you just have to be good at looking. That’s what each and every one of Jacob Howard‘s shots proves. 

Jacob Howard is a photographer and art director from Wellington, New Zealand, who, driven by curiosity and a passion for the unknown, has succeeded in revolutionising the idea of travel photography. 

While we are usually able to distinguish the places we photograph, Jacob’s photographs have a kind of desolation that fascinates and makes them even more mysterious. In series such as “The land between the seas” or the most recent one entitled “Atlas Obscura”, we are taken on a journey of discovery through deserted places, where the photographer focuses on details and elements that would go unnoticed by many. 

The result is shots of half-abandoned buildings, forgotten objects, solitary passers-by who reign at the centre of images in which symmetry and balance between colours and full and empty spaces are everything. Looking at some of the shots, it is almost impossible not to think of the construction of the image typical of Wes Anderson’s films, in which everything is so studied in every detail as to seem surreal, the only difference being that the places photographed by Jacob Howard are all real. 

If you are curious and want to know where the photos were taken, follow Jacob on Instagram, on his profile the journey through Morocco, Jordan, Egypt and many other countries never ends.

Davide Ambroggio, an ancestral memory

Davide Ambroggio, an ancestral memory

Tommaso Berra · 5 days ago · Photography

To what extent and with what intensity can we establish an intimate relationship with nature? Davide Ambroggio‘s shots bear witness to the abandonment of a body to the order of nature. Skin is stung by blades of tall, wild grass, while the sun burns the plants and becomes the guardian of a balance that is being rebuilt.
Alessandra’s eyes are naked like her body, they look at the ground that has no certainties, except in the symbolic image of a pier that leads to bristling brambles. Davide Ambroggio’s series of shots has a central moment in which the gaze rises to the level of the horizon, and more definitively in a spiritual tension that tends to the height of the sky.
The photographs in this series are an erotic tale of man’s adaptation to nature, first to the sun, then to the earth and finally to water, which in the last shots welcomes and preserves an ancestral secret.

Edoardo Lavagno’s folded arms

Edoardo Lavagno’s folded arms

Tommaso Berra · 4 days ago · Art, Photography

The half-closed lips and the frost in the eyes leave unspoken words in the air, speeches left unsaid and stifled by the poses of the naked bodies. The closed shoulders and tight arms that twist around the body like roots.
Edoardo Lavagno‘s shots portray very different women, but they seem to be frames of the same biographical film. The delicacy of a hand that casts a shadow on the sheets has the outline of a mysterious dream, in which there is a reserved eroticism that does not overflow from emotional privacy.
The walls of the houses are the background of the shots, physical limits that watch over and protect the search for freedom of expression.
There is always a window that keeps the women portrayed by Edoardo Lavagno company, a presence of light that underlines the bodies and defines their warmth, both in the color shots and in the black and white ones.

Colours and sport in the photos of Ilanna Barkusky

Colours and sport in the photos of Ilanna Barkusky

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

The world is not just black and white, nor is it just different shades of grey. The world is multicoloured, you just have to have the right eye to see it. Ilanna Barkusky seems to have it and also seems to have the talent to capture it in aerial shots that combine sport and aesthetics. 

Ilanna Barkusky is a young photographer born in Vancouver, Canada, who now lives and works in Los Angeles. Ilanna’s passion, which has also become the field in which she specialises as a photographer, is sport. From a young age she has been involved in various sports, both by playing them and then by following them with a camera. 

The aim of her work is to capture an unrepeatable moment, a gesture or a body position that is almost impossible to see with the naked eye.
What characterises her work, however, and in particular her series entitled ‘Colour Series‘, is the focus on colours. 

Before shooting, Ilanna Barkusky does a lengthy search on Google Earth for fields and tracks painted by urban artists that become multicoloured backgrounds for her drone shots, always at the same time of day.
