While growing up in post-communist Warsaw, photographer Zuzanna Szarek dreamt about the movies, toys, and food produced in America. McDonald’s was one aspect of the culture readily available to Szarek as a child in the 90s, and its Happy Meal toys always provided a rush of excitement. Today Warsaw is undergoing rapid changes, with hip stores and restaurants popping up as fast as its skyscrapers. Although the golden arches of her childhood still remain, they are now blocked by towering buildings and new construction. Continue reading »

David Burdeny captures the stunning architecture of the Italian peninsula. From north to south, Burdeny’s sharp eye takes the viewer into unique spaces, some still private residences, others transformed into museums, others shuttered permanently and falling into decay. His compositional symmetry and attention to light and color betray his background as a practicing architect, as he gives value to the structure as a living, breathing figure.

100 disposable Fujifilm cameras will be given out to people who are living on the street, in a local shelter or are otherwise affected by homelessness. Unlike any project before, the homeless of Spartanburg, SC will have an integral hand in helping expose the issue of homelessness rather than merely being the problem that is trying to be solved.
Through Our Eyes is bigger than a social experiment. It’s greater than an art piece. It’s more important than an outreach. This project is a lifeline. The photographers will be equipped with the tools to tell their story. They will be encouraged through a word of hope. The community will be engaged to support those who work with the homeless.

The effect is somewhat reminiscent of the ubiquitous Glamour Shots portraits that were popular at the same time. Continue reading »

Braving temperatures of -45f to visit a place that is literally located at the end of the earth, Sasha Leahovcenco photographed people who have never had their picture taken before.
Trudging through snow drifts and blizzards, across the deep tundra of the northern Russian region of Chukotka, Leahovcenco traveled to meet a small nomadic tribe of reindeer herders – disconnected from the modern world where the way of life has barely changed for thousands of years. Bringing along a digital printer to the region where it the record high is barely above 90f, Leahovcenco photographed the men, women and children of the hardy native people there – and then to their delight showed them pictures of themselves for the first time in their lives.
