Save The Duck on top of K2 with Mingma Tenzi

Save The Duck on top of K2 with Mingma Tenzi

Giulia Guido · 1 month ago · Style

A few days ago, Mingma Tenzi’s feat entered right into history. The mountaineer and Sherpa, together with her companions, reached the summit of K2, the second-highest mountain in the world (8,609 meters high) and that until now had never been climbed in the coldest season. 

K2 is known by all for the great quantity of snow, which causes a high risk of avalanches, and for the temperatures that in winter reach -60°. These characteristics make it a real “Savage Mountain”, attracting mountaineers and climbers from all over the world. 

To face the enterprise, in addition to the indispensable oxygen, Mingma Tenzi had another great ally: Save The Duck

In fact, the Italian brand dressed the Sherpa in a vegan suit, 100% without goose down, demonstrating once again how research, innovation and development of sustainable technologies are a valid alternative to garments made with animal derivatives. 

By reaching the summit of K2, Mingma Tenzi proved once again how far a man can push his limits and Save The Duck proved that the patterns of fashion and the outdoor world can change and win.

The evocative shots by Margaret Durow

The evocative shots by Margaret Durow

Giulia Guido · 2 hours ago · Photography

Away from the East and West Coasts, travelling to the centre of the United States and leaving behind cities such as New York, Washington or San Francisco, it is possible to discover another America. Margaret Durow takes us on a walk through Wisconsin and its beautiful landscapes. 

Born in 1989, Margaret Durow is a photographer who started shooting as a teenager, capturing the days spent with friends. Then her camera started to focus on something else: her surroundings, but also herself. 

Browsing through her Instagram profile or visiting her website, we can see how photos of sunsets and endless fields of grass alternate with those of her fragile but indestructible body. Margaret uses photography to tell her story, the moods she feels, trying to empathise with the viewer. 

When Margaret Durow was five years old, she was found to have a benign tumour on her spine. The various operations she had to undergo marked her existence and her body, and today she shows us the scars on her skin to tell us what she feels under those scars. 

Margaret Durow

Margaret imprints her moods on us and we can’t help but be transported by her shots: on tiptoe we become witnesses to her life, her body becomes ours and the relief we feel looking at the landscapes she photographs couldn’t be truer.

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

The dark and mysterious shots of Marit Beer

Collater.al Contributors · 4 hours ago · Photography

The shots of Marit Beer are dark and mysterious, they tell stories of distant and unknown countries where it is cold, there is silence and the air is humid.

To enter her world you only need to look at her photographs: it seems to be in another reality, isolated, far from the confusion of civilization, among small unattended villages surrounded by wild countryside.

Looking at her shots is like reliving them, is like diving in an uncomfortable world of embroidery and lace, among old fabrics crumpled and faded by time. You can perceive her thoughts and anxieties: the passing of time, the weight of existence and the intimacy of secrets.

Her subjects are authentic but always seem to disappear, they are ghosts that never show themselves in their entirety, impenetrable, enigmatic and disturbing spirits.

The photographs of Marit Beer involve us and drag us away from reality, they are ancient paintings faded by time.

Follow her.

Martin Neuhof, an evocative photographer and portraitist

Martin Neuhof, an evocative photographer and portraitist

Federica Cimorelli · 1 day ago · Photography

Martin Neuhof, born in 1984, is a German photographer and portrait artist based in Leipzig, Germany. Martin followed in the footsteps of his grandfather Friedrich Gahlbeck, a well-known German photographer of the last century, then worked to afford a camera and began experimenting with images.

His photography is clear and elegant, it focuses on the human face and delves into the interiority of the subject he captures. For Martin Neuhof, the face is a gateway to human emotions, an obstacle to be overcome and a barrier to be broken.

His photographic compositions manage to break down all appearances, they are creative shots that highlight the protagonist of the image and meanwhile strike the viewer, provoke him and activate something in his inner self.

See a selection of his shots here, follow Martin Neuhof on Instagram and on his personal website.
