Restricted Residence, Giles Price’s photographic project

Restricted Residence, Giles Price’s photographic project

Giulia Guido · 2 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.

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Photography

Women are the protagonists of the shots by Russian self-taught photographer Marat Safin. Lonely women, women in the house, in the kitchen or lying on the bed, women immersed in nature, free among the high grass, women looking in the car or immortalized in spontaneous poses. 

Marat’s female portraits convey a sense of calm, intimacy. 

The warm light that we find in all her shots immediately gives the family atmosphere, giving us an air of home, of familiarity. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of her shots, to find out more go to the Marat Safin’s Instagram profile

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Photography

After the ranking of the best astronomical and microscope photographs of 2021, these days the best wildlife photos of the last year have also been awarded. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a competition organized by the Natural History Museum in London, now in its 57th edition.
There are many aspects that make extraordinary the 100 photos in competition, taken by professional photographers or amateurs and selected from 50 thousand proposals. On the one hand, the technique used and the patience in waiting to take the perfect shot, unrepeatable in many cases. On the other hand, the unusual point of view, which brings viewers closer to unusual natural events or animals that are difficult to approach, such as the shot of the spider as big as a human hand or the “selfie” taken by a grizzly bear in front of the carcass of a deer in the United States.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is divided into 19 categories, from which the two winners have been announced. Laurent Ballesta, who specializes in aquatic photography, won the Adult Grand Title Winner with an image capturing some camouflaged groupers in French Polynesia emerging from a cloud of eggs and sperm. It took the French photographer five years of night diving to capture this moment, which occurs only during the July full moon period.
The other winner of the wildlife photo contest was Vidyun R. Hebbar, just ten years old, who was awarded the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his image of a spider wrapped in its web, taken in Bangalore, India.

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Joshua Rhodes is a Californian photographer present on Instagram with the accounts @fuzzyaxolotl and @fuzzyanalog.

His images are charged with solar eroticism: pin-up style models, portrayed with irony and sensuality, with a vintage style that seems to echo the editorial taste of Playboy and a certain 70s erotic cinema.

The statuesque bodies of blonde models shine in the sun on perfect beaches, emerge from the water of the ocean or crystalline pools.

Natural shots, delicate and glossy lights.

Check out a selection of his shots here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.
