Kellen Hatanaka and the common language between Japan and Canada

Kellen Hatanaka and the common language between Japan and Canada

Tommaso Berra · 3 months ago · Art

The world illustrated by Kellen Hatanaka is one that holds a nostalgic vision of what she has observed throughout her life, spent in Canada but with Japanese cultural influences. From his family upbringing to symbols of popular culture such as food or baseball, Hatanaka expresses his feelings through an almost childlike style of painting, with which, however, he depicts the already mature world he sees with his own eyes.

Each painting combines unmistakable elements of Japanese tradition, from cherry blossoms to teapots, but also more anonymous stories, such as those of anonymous athletes, deprived of symbols except those on their uniforms or shoes.
Kellen Hatanaka’s illustrations are a picture of the power of context, which can only create worlds through the association of themes and symbols that are clear to the viewer. There is the confusion dictated by not identifying a historical period in which the characters live; the symbols are so universal to Japanese culture that they are timeless, for an effect of perennial energy.

The best astronomy photos of 2022

The best astronomy photos of 2022

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

Space is mysterious and frightening territory, we observe from Earth phenomena that most of the time, unless you are an astronomer or very passionate, cannot be fully explained. Remaining are the fascination of seeing them from afar, observing celestial bodies, night skies and everything that inspires fantastic tales and makes us imagine the presence of other worlds light years away from us.
Some phenomena require patience because they are very slow, others are difficult to witness because they are extemporaneous, all of which makes photographing astronomical phenomena a very difficult task, and each year the best shots are awarded at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

3,000 photos entered in 2022 by photographers from 67 countries, including the winning one by photographer Gerald Rhemann, who managed to capture a rare event that made many look up to the sky last December. It was Christmas Day when comet Leonard crossed the sky over Tivoli, Namibia. Rhemann managed to capture the moment before the celestial body was blown away by the solar wind, and the energy-charged shot earned first place in the contest.
For the next 12 months the shot will be on display in London, at the National Maritime Museum, along with the other entries and divided into thematic categories (galaxies, sun, moon, landscapes…).
