The TLDR is that London-based organisation 28 Too Many has just released some provocative imagery tackling the subject of FGM in an original and shocking new campaign to #endFGM.

Art is freedom of expression, it can be shown in various kinds of aspects like painting, sculpture, design, photography etc. We appreciate street art as it is everywhere and energetic, a concrete jungle like Hong Kong does really need more inspiration for people to remind them quality living is not only about how much you gain financially but also the way of how you live in a city.

“Maya” Girls

A “Maya” girl sits in an altar during the traditional celebration of “Las Mayas” on the streets in Madrid, Spain Sunday, May 10, 2015. The festivity of the Maya comes from pagan rites and dates from the medieval age, appearing in ancient documents. It takes place every year in the beginning of May and celebrates the beginning of the spring. Girls between 7 and 11 years old are chosen as “Maya” and should sit still, serious and quiet for a couple of hours in altars on the street decorated with flowers and plants and afterwards they walk to the church with their family where they attend a ceremony.

My 365-Day Project Lets Me Explore Photographic Opportunities

Since Labor Day, 2014 photographer Mark Flower has been taking a photograph a day for a year.

“Although not all photos have been very interesting, I have allowed myself the opportunities to try new things. Through these opportunities I have shrunk myself, floated in the air, and even removed my head and replaced it with a camera. As a professional photographer and a graphic designer, I find it extremely important to allow myself these outlets to let my creative side shine. Otherwise, my job just would not maintain its level of interest. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love spending time getting to know new people through events such as weddings and portrait shoots. However, as far as photography goes I love the ability to create a world and scenarios which transcends the world we perceive.”
