Zhong Lin’s magnetic photography

Zhong Lin’s magnetic photography

Giulia Pacciardi · 7 months ago · Photography

Looking at the shots of Malaysian photographer Zhong Lin the first feature that attracts attention is, without a doubt, the use of color.
In fact, even if she does not consider it to be the only detail that defines her style, she admits that she is very careful and sensitive to the use of colors and that she prefers red, orange, and blue above all.

The photographer, who began her experimentation shooting on film by herself, is a great lover of spontaneity.
What she likes to portray, when she is on a set for an editorial or a fashion campaign, is the moment between one shot and the next, the least thought out and constructed, the real one.
When she is not working on a set, instead, she travels the world with the aim of immortalizing people and lifestyles different from hers, the beauty of an everyday life different from what she is used to.

The magnetism of her shots and that timeless allure that distinguishes them, have led her to appear in famous fashion magazines such as Vogue, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar,in different countries, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan China, Grazia China, Nylon China, W Korea, InStyle China, L’Officiel, Milk X and many others.
But not only that, her ability to push her models out of comfort zones has allowed her to collaborate with many artists and celebrities who have chosen to work with her precisely because of her unusual approach to the camera.

She is currently working on “Project 365” photo challenge, one shot a day from 23 April 2020 for 365 days, a way to share her vision of the world, beauty, and art with all the people who follow her on Instagram and share her same wonderful passions.

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea and his intimate and emotional shots

Giulia Guido · 4 days ago · Photography

How great would it be to sneak into other people’s lives? To follow them in their intimacy, safe from being seen? That’s exactly what Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea allows us to do. 

Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea, on Instagram as @greyheavens, was born in Ukraine and at the age of three was adopted by a Basque family. His adolescence was spent in different Spanish cities such as Irun, Valladolid and Madrid, until a few years ago he decided to move to London, where he still lives and works today. 
Art in all its forms, from dance to music, has always been part of Aritz’s life, but in the end, photography won du all. 

“There came a time when I knew that I couldn’t do every type of art, I opted to follow Photography as this gave me the freedom to talk about life in a way others could interact with. “

We, as soon as we saw them, fell in love with his shots. 

They are intimate photographs, in which do we see boys, girls, young couples captured in their everyday life, in their private moments, in which every mask falls and the truest feelings remain. 

“I would define my photography as intimate, vulnerable and even psychological, but above all, human.”

Through the works of Aritz Dimas Aizpiolea we sneak into the lives of others, we become invisible spectators, hidden behind doors and windows. We get lost in the melancholic faces and feel all the heaviness of the body and emotions let go. 

Below is a selection of his shots, but to find out more follow him on Instagram

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Exploration of femininity in Prue Stent’s photography

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Prue Stent is a young Sydney based photographer who knows what femininity is today and shows it to us without too many frills.

She began to investigate the world of photography in adolescence, at sixteen. And in her four photographic projects, a common thread seems to link all her shots: the women. Sarcastic, beautiful, abandoned, surreal, intriguing, a little extravagant. She bows her uses a range of colors to express all the femininity in the world. Soft tones that smell of marshmallows.

Prue says she likes to work spontaneously. And this is perceptible in every shot, which seems like an instinctive game. This helps to experiment, to explore, to reflect on a new beauty linked to the female body that is not an object to be immortalized, but a statue that shows her beauty only when she is left free to act spontaneously.

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Ironic and surreal photos by Kostis Fokas

Buddy · 9 hours ago · Photography

Kostis Fokas is is a conceptual photographer whose artistic practice revolves around the exploration of the complexities of the human body.

His work focuses on the interplay between youth culture and eroticism and widely reflects aspects of his inner self. He is irreverent, sensual, arrogan, humorous, provocative and energetic.

He was born in Greece, precisely in Athens, where probably growing up among statues of gods and water lilies, he understood that behind the pose of a body there is a world of forms to explore.

Boredom and reality do not interest him and his shots prove it. He knows how to handle the world and his room to his liking. By controlling every color detail, every light source, he creates a shot that is an estrangement from everyday life, that he knows of Tumblr and surrealism.
