No Small Victories – the Art of Sho, 2011


Samuel Ho “Sho” is a traveling salesman with nothing but a well kept collection of hats and an insatiable desire to create. A designer by profession and artist by heart, he has had his hands in designing websites, fashion lines, books, athletic shoes, diamond jewelry, accessories, exhibits, interiors, furniture and many other things. He learned his skills by working the designer circuit in Manhattan, NY and was inspired to take up illustration from his roommates in Brooklyn. Blurring the line between fine art and innovative commercial work, Sho has refused to pledge to just one discipline of design so he continues to take on multi-faceted projects.

Advertising In Arabic Way

unnamed

The Muslim world has unusual prohibitions in advertising. This is due to the national and religious peculiarities of Islamic countries. Any advertising, including logos, should be forcibly adapted to local cultural values and the Arabic language. In order to do this you must know what various animals symbolize, what symbols indicate and how those or other subjects can be interpreted in Islamic countries.

For example, dogs are considered to be “dirty animals”, so you can rarely see them in advertising. Fish symbolizes Christianity, a crow – death, and a chameleon – hypocrisy. Continue »

Solidified Memories

“As the world awaits China’s “Olym_pic bow”, the North-Eastern city of Dalian shines out as China’s “most habitable city”.

But away from Beijing and the media spotlights, hidden among the uptown hotels and sky rises lies a derelict and neglected neighborhood with a community in need. Faced with the realisation that their homes may be destroyed at anytime, the inhabitants are placed in a difficult situation as terrible living conditions are brushed aside by a local govern_ment who have planned to demolish the area for years. In a city whose people live to remember the war atrocities of Japanese invaders, residents remain torn over the fate of an area which houses both fond memories and a painful past. As China redevelops at an astounding rate much of its precious heritage is destroyed. This project takes photography back to its rawest and most intimate form – remembering.”

A photo story of Boris Austin, that aims to show that there is a lot more happening in China than the well known realities of economic development and the Olympic games.

As a group of young boys race through the streets, time for this historic neighborhood and its community may be running out. Among the many stories are plans for building apartment blocks and business parks and even the idea that the old town will be saved and become a movie park for film makers. With the planned demolition delayed and mounting rumors over its redevelopment, the fate of the old town lies truly unknown.


A brand new building containing luxury apartments towers over the edge of the old town.

Heavy hand, sunken spirit: Mexico at war

Heavy Hand, Sunken Spirit is an ongoing project about the societal costs and consequences of Mexico’s violent drug war. It frames the violence as a symptom, as opposed to the problem, and one of a variety of symptoms that will haunt the country for generations. This country is in the midst of a “conflict” in every sense of the word, and when documenting this conflict it is important not to reduce what is happening to a series of nearly anonymous images of carnage that could be happening anywhere.
