The eSports stadium in Toronto by Populous

The eSports stadium in Toronto by Populous

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Design

If you don’t know them or think eSports are just a passing phenomenon you are wrong, big time. The best definition of eSports is as follows: professional-level video game competitions.

The competitive video games are a market segment that lately is really depopulated, in 2020 the turnover came to about a billion and a half dollars. If you seem disproportionate figures are enough to know that those who win tournaments of a certain caliber are awarded prize money in excess of twenty million dollars.

Well, once you have understood what we are talking about you will not be surprised by the news that there are those who are thinking of building a stadium dedicated to these events and not only.

Architecture firm Populous has unveiled the first renderings of a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Toronto, designed to also host music concerts and theater performances. There’s no date yet, but it could all be ready in 2025.

Made mostly of glass, what’s most striking is definitely its design, which straddles two worlds. In fact, it won’t look like a real stadium, but neither will it look like a theater, it will be more like something in between, the architects said.

Waiting to see when everything will be realized, Toronto is a candidate as the capital of eSports, ready to attract some of the biggest events in the world. Here are all the photos.

More than bodies, Rony Hernandes’ photography

More than bodies, Rony Hernandes’ photography

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 hours ago · Photography

Rony Hernandes is a model and photographer who uses body exploration as an expressive means to embark on new paths and depict characters who fully explore their sexuality without taboos. The artist tells his approach to photography as follows:

“Photography became a part of my life when I realized that I could go through what I felt and felt with the camera in hand, I express myself through self-portraits and stories.”

All images have a perfect composition and tend to highlight with great elegance body aesthetic harmony in every shape. The management of light is accurate and suggestive; nothing is left to chance, indeed, behind every shot there is a large study that contributes to a global representation of multiple moods that arouse strong emotions in the viewer.

On Rony’s Instagram profile you can find other very interesting images, in the meantime have a look at our gallery.

Carlota Guerrero and the naked beauty of women

Carlota Guerrero and the naked beauty of women

Giulia Guido · 18 hours ago · Photography

Simple beauty without censorship. That’s exactly how you could describe the art of Carlota Guerrero.

Born in Barcelona, Carlota is a self-taught artist and has been passionate about photography since she was a teenager. Over the years, the style of her shots has proved to be perfect for high fashion editorials, working for brands like Givenchy and Dior, for artistic performances, but also for advertising campaigns like The Force Is Female for Nike.

What has made the work of Spanish photographer known and appreciated internationally are her photographs that portray the beauty of female bodies. There are no veils, nothing hides the shapes of the bodies that are immortalized by Carlota’s lens.

The women portrayed represent their freedom, freedom to show themselves and their bodies, not because they are obliged to do so, but because they are free to do so.

Discover more about Carlota on her site and Instagram profile.

Self-Portrait, Sofia Masini delicate portraits

Self-Portrait, Sofia Masini delicate portraits

Giulia Pacciardi · 18 hours ago · Photography

From the pictorial self-portraits of the past to the self-portraits taken with a smartphone, humans have always been fascinated by the photographic representation of themselves.
In fact, to question the meaning of beauty and identity, the Milanese photographer Sofia Masini created a series of surreal nudes against the backdrop of an empty apartment.

Her portraits, which are very delicate in colours are very strong in form. Distorted nudes, faceless figures jamming into the body, in strange corners created by the same arts.

A project that, according to the words of the photographer herself, allowed her to listen to her body, look inside without filters and find a safe space where she can express her feelings without fear.

Between reality and fiction, the photography by Ibai Acevedo

Between reality and fiction, the photography by Ibai Acevedo

Giulia Guido · 18 hours ago · Photography

Born in 1984 in Barcelona, Ibai Acevedo is a photographer who, thanks to his shots, takes us into a world on the border between dream and reality. 

The one between Ibai and photography was neither a love born as a child, nor a love at first sight: there was a time, that seems so far away in which he was a graphic designer and in which he spent the summers peacefully, without having to take pictures of anything. Then something slowly changed. 

Ibai Acevedo

Today Ibai Acevedo has found in the camera the means to express emotions and states of mind. To do this he has developed a very particular style, able to capture us and never let us go. 

Through an almost exasperated and unnatural use of lights and colors, Ibai Acevedo manages to transform ordinary subjects and places, such as a bedroom or a bath in the sea, into something extraordinary and surreal. 

We recognize everything in his shots, each element seems real but at the same time impossible.

Ibai Acevedo’s portfolio is a journey into the oneiric, ready to dive in?
