The natural and fleeting portraits by Nirish Shakya aka Nizzah

The natural and fleeting portraits by Nirish Shakya aka Nizzah

Giulia Guido · 4 months ago · Photography

It has happened to all of us – even those who are not in the profession – to take a picture of someone, a portrait, and to take a lot of time to be able to capture the perfect moment, the one in which the light hits the face in a certain way, the one in which the hair is not out of place and the expression exactly as we wanted it. Nirish Shakya will be able to blow your mind.

Nirish Shakya aka Nizzah is a Nepalese-Australian-born photographer living and working in London. Nirish started shooting during his travels and little by little his passion for photography grew into his work. The discovery of the places he visited took place mainly through the camera with which he focused on people’s faces.

This curious and direct approach led him to develop a recognizable style that is perfect both for personal projects and for commercial and editorial works.

Nirish Shakya seems to be drawn to those moments that if we were photographing we would surely discard: because faces are often covered by windblown hair or something like that.

Instead, Nizzah shows us how spontaneity and naturalness between one pose and another can hide an unseen beauty, all to be discovered.

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Federica Cimorelli · 6 days ago · Photography

The photographs of Roeg Cohen are intimate and seductive, talking about life, memory and eternity. His shots tell the most personal aspects of his subjects, they are enigmatic images full of meaning.

Roeg started photography at the age of thirty, but his artistic level is far from immature. He uses photography to express his creativity, it tells as much about himself as about those on the other side of the lens, it communicates independence, courage and boldness.

What Roeg Cohen seems to have with his subjects is an intense and sincere connection. The protagonists of his photographs communicate through body and eyes. They are immortalized in different situations and express opposite and complementary feelings: quiet, peace, silence but also tumult, tension and revolt.

His photographs evoke sensations that are difficult to express in words, which is why we let his images speak for themselves.

The simple and familiar photography by Lauren Bamford

The simple and familiar photography by Lauren Bamford

Federica Cimorelli · 5 days ago · Photography

Lauren Bamford is a freelance photographer based in Melbourne, Australia, specialising in still life, travel and documentary photography – both editorial and commercial. Her shots combine simple, familiar subjects with eye-catching colour palettes and are the result of careful work on atmosphere and compositions.

Her personal style, discreet and humble, mixes instinct and reason. Lauren Bamford in fact, places great importance on natural light, but when it cannot be used for the image, she reconstructs and artificially imitates it as much as possible.
Design objects, food, people, details are the protagonists of her photographs, they are collections of interesting things put together with harmony and balance.

Soft Tissue, an unexpected female sensuality

Soft Tissue, an unexpected female sensuality

Giulia Pacciardi · 5 days ago · Photography

Soft Tissue, a project born from the collaboration between photographer Prue Stent and artist Honey Long, explores female sensuality through the eyes of those who ignore stereotypes.

In fact, always fascinated by the meaning of gender identity, the creative duo wanted to focus the lens on body portions generally not considered sensual.
Skin, hair, veins and defects become the protagonists of shot between the grotesque and the dreamlike.

Everything is focused on the detail that disturbs, on textures and details that almost resemble the beauty of unexplored landscapes.

The aim of the project is to encourage the viewer not to become a slave of a single point of view, rather than to create their own associating different ideas with shapes that have now become descriptive.
