This or That – Milo Hachim

This or That – Milo Hachim

Tommaso Berra · 4 weeks ago · Art

Milena Hachim is an eclectic illustrator who lives in Santiago, Chile with her rabbit. For the past several years she has devoted herself entirely to illustration and ceramic work. Everything she does is modeled, hand-painted but first of all drawn-this is how all her characters come to life.

Not owning many toys, she spent all day as a child drawing and making plasticine figures. Illustration therefore has always been a part of her life, surrounded by her mother’s comic books (“Disney Fantasies,” “Peanuts,” and “Babar the Elephant”) that over time influenced her stroke. Milo’s father, on the other hand, a school teacher, often frequented the finest bookstores, and she never missed an opportunity to accompany him to minutely observe all the picture books.
I feel that I have not changed much in my favorite activities, I keep many objects and books from when I was a child. My hobby is going to flea markets to find treasures and old toys that inspire me, although my rabbit remains without a doubt my number one muse.”

What she likes most about her work with clay is that it allows her to experiment and materialize figures that she imagines and which then become physical pieces with an affective value. 
Milena thinks that ceramics is similar to drawing because it involves several steps, the difference being that in ceramics the process is much slower and unpredictable. The moment after the kiln is her favorite because you can never know for sure what will come out of it. 
His style is figurative he uses strong colors and the objects he makes are gentle and fun. Some pieces are real tools of everyday life (flower vases, jewelry boxes, or candle holders) but for the most part they are not, at least in the traditional sense, and their only use is perhaps to be beautiful.

The best astronomy photos of 2022

The best astronomy photos of 2022

Tommaso Berra · 5 days ago · Photography

Space is mysterious and frightening territory, we observe from Earth phenomena that most of the time, unless you are an astronomer or very passionate, cannot be fully explained. Remaining are the fascination of seeing them from afar, observing celestial bodies, night skies and everything that inspires fantastic tales and makes us imagine the presence of other worlds light years away from us.
Some phenomena require patience because they are very slow, others are difficult to witness because they are extemporaneous, all of which makes photographing astronomical phenomena a very difficult task, and each year the best shots are awarded at the Astronomy Photographer of the Year.

3,000 photos entered in 2022 by photographers from 67 countries, including the winning one by photographer Gerald Rhemann, who managed to capture a rare event that made many look up to the sky last December. It was Christmas Day when comet Leonard crossed the sky over Tivoli, Namibia. Rhemann managed to capture the moment before the celestial body was blown away by the solar wind, and the energy-charged shot earned first place in the contest.
For the next 12 months the shot will be on display in London, at the National Maritime Museum, along with the other entries and divided into thematic categories (galaxies, sun, moon, landscapes…).

Tatiana Cardellicchio stops the motion of nature

Tatiana Cardellicchio stops the motion of nature

Tommaso Berra · 1 week ago · Photography

Photography, when it wants to convey universal emotions, has more strength when it is shared with other people from its earliest stages. Tatiana Cardellicchio owes much to meeting and collaborating with other creatives, who have inspired her, reinforcing an already clear idea of art that is enhanced when seen as a whole and not as individual shots.
There is often a human figure in Tatiana Cardellicchio’s photos, isolated in the world in a moment of pause, in which the perpetual motion of life seems to have been interrupted in favor of a more meditative relationship with nature and the elements that make it up.

The sea becomes a kind of baptismal water, the blades of grass in the meadow instead the perfect surface in which to abandon the body, often of a young woman, which does not impose its silhouette in the landscape but adapts to the rocks or the stool left in the corner of the room.
With a career as a photo retoucher and photo editor, the shots on the photographer’s Instagram profile show a more intimate look in which enhancing the plasticity of the body is a mission, as is blurring the edges between the human figure and nature, in a game of participation in the natural cycle that it is easy to want to be a part of.

Bodies in the wild in Lisa Strautmann’s photos

Bodies in the wild in Lisa Strautmann’s photos

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

The balance between the human figure and the landscape is the key to Lisa Strautmann‘s shots. Born in 1988, Lisa Strautmann is a German photographer who has had a different path than many of her colleagues. In fact, she has earned no less than two degrees, neither of them in the arts or photography: the first in physical education and the second in psychology. 

Her course of study, however, led her to have the approach she has today to the photographic medium and the subjects she shoots. We almost always see one or more figures in the center of the composition, naked, in unnatural and contrived poses. All around are the colors of nature, from the bright green of the grass to the clear blue of the sky. 

With these images, Lisa Strautmann manages to merge her being an adult, feminist woman with a deep love for nature and the connection humans can make with it.
