Restricted Residence, Giles Price’s photographic project

Restricted Residence, Giles Price’s photographic project

Giulia Guido · 3 years ago · Photography

It was March 11, 2011, when the Japanese region of Tōhoku was hit first by an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 and then by a tsunami that caused the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima power plant. 

Just after the accident, the inhabitants of the cities of Natie and Iitate were forced to evacuate and move away from their homes. For many years these places remained completely displaced, until two years ago, when the Japanese government slowly began to reduce the exclusion zones and invested financially in the physical and economic reconstruction of these areas. 

Despite this, very few people have actually had the courage to return to their homes, leaving some areas still totally uninhabited. 

This is the scenario that attracted the English photographer Giles Price, who has always examined man’s impact on the environment through his work, and which led him to create Restricted Residence

This photographic project is a collection of shots taken with the thermal technology usually used in the medical field or in surveys. The result is almost surreal photographs showing landscapes and people returned to the exclusion zones.

All the shots of Restricted Residence have been collected in a book of the same name and accompanied by an essay by Fred Pearce, an environmentalist writer. Giles Price gives back the atmosphere and the tensions present in a place that has experienced a nuclear disaster trying to question the viewer not only about the extent of the impact of nature on the man but also what man has on nature. 

The book Restricted Residence is published by Loose Joints.

Tonje Thilesen’s photos tell the story of Oslo and Brooklyn

Tonje Thilesen’s photos tell the story of Oslo and Brooklyn

Tommaso Berra · 3 weeks ago · Photography

Tonje Thilesen was born in 1991 in Oslo, Norway, later moved to Berlin and now looks at the world through his camera from Brooklyn, New York. The change of landscape he has seen throughout his life is a key to his shots, and to the variety of subjects immortalised.
The city as seen through Thilesen’s eyes is populated by animals, which almost always seem to be free and uncatchable, but there is also a study of the human figure, its plasticity and its movements in physical space. The light reaches the subjects either uniformly or through defined beams, the same beams that can filter through trees or between buildings.

Tonje Thilesen’s subjects very often seem to almost glow, there are small flashes that create points of light, like those by which we might be dazzled in front of an expanse of snow for example.
Close-ups are one of the photographer’s favourite cuts, this is because his approach to photography was born out of the need to analyse reality, to study it during his years in Norway and then more consistently in Germany, when Tonje followed the protagonists of the city’s music scene.

Brett Lloyd’s photos are a reflection on Naples

Brett Lloyd’s photos are a reflection on Naples

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

On his way to join a friend in Sorrento, Brett Lloyd misses his last connection to the Amalfi Coast and finds himself alone in Naples at night. The English photographer left his ID in Rome, and without the possibility of finding a hotel for the night, he starts wandering the city’s alleys until dawn, falling in love with what will become his home, both physical and artistic, for the next 12 years.
Brett Lloyd’s bond with Naples is intense and emotional; the people and the classicism of the landscapes have inspired the photographer’s work for more than a decade, now collected in a new book published by Mörel Books and entitled “Napoli Napoli Napoli”, presented in Paris on 10 November and now the focus of an exhibition in Milan on the 16th at Spazio Maiocchi.

The 135 shots contained within the book recount a day in Naples, from dawn to dusk, staging the popular theatre that is the city at the foot of Vesuvius. Lloyd reflects on classicism and the power of the sea, an element at the centre of many shots and the lives of the often very young people portrayed by the artist.
The story of ‘Napoli Napoli’ is a patient work, running through four summers, the unit of measurement for defining the passing of time when one is young and carefree. it is precisely with these people that Brett has woven relationships over the years through shared glances and emotions, overcoming an initial language barrier that never seems to emerge in the photos. the harmony between the photographic lens and the subjects is total, the eyes and rosaries point straight at the lens, while the sea continues its perpetual motion.

Aleksandr Babarikin’s impressions of New York

Aleksandr Babarikin’s impressions of New York

Tommaso Berra · 2 weeks ago · Photography

A little more than a year ago Aleksandr Babarikin moved to New York, he works as a software engineer but he wanted to look for a tool to fully understand the inhabitants of the city, its rhythms and more generally the context of a world very different from that of Belarus, the nation where he was born.
Photography for Aleksandr Babarikin is thus a hobby, his impressions of New York are very strong, and the interesting aspect is in his choice to understand the tool not as an in-depth knowledge, not as an exhaustive study of the reality around him, rather as a collection of sensations, as happens in the early stages of any knowledge.
The concept of the “impression” of New York is made visually clear through the nuances that unify the entire scene shot by Babarikin. The subjects blend with the background, the shadows of the city, the cabs and the concrete backdrop are blurred, as unstable and elusive, perhaps an “impression” that is already certainty.
