For Fortune Cookie/Photographer: Le Pinch Martin Tremblay

For Fortune Cookie/Photographer: Le Pinch Martin Tremblay | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

For Fortune Cookie, photographer Martin Tremblay, also known as Pinch, turns the fashion world upside down, literally. As part of a shoot commissioned by London-based Schön! Magazine, he captures models floating, their heads planted on an overturned floor. Though the planet is jarringly inverted, normal life continues unchanged while fantastical female muses clad in Dolce & Gabbana, Marie Saint Pierre, and Givenchy adapt to a reverse gravitational pull. Here, the world of fashion and the mundanities of the everyday exist both in harmony and in conflict, moving in opposite directions and yet unified under a single, vibrant aesthetic.

Fortune Cookie was researched over the course of two years and created with more than one hundred and sixty hours of meticulous retouching in collaboration with Visual Box. Styling was done by Pascal & Jérémie. In this magical realm, the imaginative mind runs free, suspending rational thought if only for a moment.

Rana Plaza Collapse: Death of A Thousand Dreams | Photojournalist: Taslima Akhter

Rana Plaza Collapse: Death of A Thousand Dreams | Photojournalist: Taslima Akhter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

On that day, early in the morning many garment workers walked into the factories of Rana Plaza, their working place. Within an hour everything was shattered. Nobody knows how many workers were running to save his or her lives at the end moment. Workers’ scream echoed on the walls of Rana Plaza. Many of their voices could not reach out passing through the heavy concrete walls. Over a thousand workers lost their lives in the deathtrap. They are the cheapest labors of the world. They are not only numbers; they are human beings.

 

Who could imagine the collapse that caused the most unacceptable fate for the cheapest labors from Bangladesh? 24th April 2013, 9am. Becoming a brutal incident of history, a nine-story commercial building Rana Plaza collapsed at Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh and left more than 1134 workers dead, more than hundred missing and many other wounded. Around a thousand families have found dead bodies of their beloved family members. - Taslima Akhter

Le chien paria, cette réincarnation des voleurs | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

Le chien paria, cette réincarnation des voleurs | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

On s’habitue difficilement à la présence de ces chiens errants qui, comme les vaches ou porcs, infestent la voie publique où ils tolèrent à peine les passants obligés de leur céder le pas. Dans toutes les ruelles, sur les saillies des façades bleues, on les aperçoit quotidiennement par groupes de trois ou quatre couchés en rond.

 

Le jour, assommés par la chaleur, ils se la coulent douce comme des couleuvres au soleil, se laissant plutôt fouler aux pieds que de se lever. Il faut les contourner sans se faire mordre en priant le dieu Ganesh qu’ils n’aient pas la rage. La nuit, dès le crépuscule jusqu’à l’aube, ils reprennent goût à la vie et gare aux promeneurs solitaires comme bibi qui tenterait le Diable pour faire des photos…

 

Je savais que je croiserai en chemin des vaches mais je ne m’attendais pas à découvrir autant de chiens SDF. Pourtant mes lectures préalables sur le Rajasthan m’avait mis en garde sur le fléau canin mais c’est tout moi ça : lors de mes voyages je m’incline difficilement à présager le pire, à ne pas céder à la paranoïa du danger toujours imminent.

LIVING UNNOTICED | Photojournalist: JANA ASENBRENNEROVA - World Press 2014

LIVING UNNOTICED | Photojournalist: JANA ASENBRENNEROVA - World Press 2014 | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
LIVING UNNOTICED13 February 2013

The Democratic Republic of the Congo has no law that makes homosexuality illegal in the country, but there is no societal acceptance for it, which makes the idea of equal treatment under the law a fantasy. Gay people there often choose to remain hidden to protect themselves from physical danger and social stigmatization. At this point, there is almost no legal support for the gay community outside the occasional gesture from international sources and NGOs.

 

Rainbow Sunrise was founded in 2011 by Joseph Saidi, 26, to support the gay community in the city of Bukavu in the eastern DRC. Progress is slow due to a lack of funds, but the organization plays a critical role for local gay men and women, providing free HIV testing, condoms, sexual education, and perhaps most importantly, a safe place to share their personal struggles with others, without having to feel ashamed, rejected, or judged.

 

Saidi was attacked and jailed for several days in May 2013: “When I was in prison, I spent two days without food or drink. I was tortured, and I was raped by three inmates. I suffered from cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. I was discriminated against based on my sexual orientation. I was beaten by inmates. I thought I was going to die because since my birth I've never been subjected to such treatment.”

Suspension | Photographer: Alvaro Deprit

Suspension | Photographer: Alvaro Deprit | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

This work seeks to explore the special psychological moment of adolescence traversed by foreign minors in juvenile communities and the impact of their individual experience in the passage to adulthood. For them, it is a time suspended between past and future which sees radical changes in their space; a passing phase in which tensions, reflections and life expectations are concentrated.

In Italy, each year the 'Case Famiglie' (literally 'Family Homes' – family-type communities located in residential buildings), welcome between 7,000 and 8,000 unaccompanied non-EU citizen minors from different continents – young people who have travelled thousands of kilometres, even at the risk of their lives, fleeing war, poverty and uncertainty.

They can be defined as survivors, having faced, in some cases, a voyage which in its final phase brought them to the extreme limits of their means. Now in the 'Home', they live suspended between two worlds, in time and in space; they are on hold, waiting for what will come. However, during this welcoming phase in which they have found a dimension of tranquillity, the sense of uncertainty does not come any less, as once they reach adulthood, they will again find themselves facing the external world outside the home, often without any sort of purpose.

La danse Bhavai | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter

La danse Bhavai | Serge Bouvet, photographe reporter | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The photographer Serge Bouvet met Bhavai dancer at the slum of Kathputli Colony (India, New Delhi). Bhavai is a genre of folk dance popular in Rajasthan state in western India. The male or female performers balance a number of earthen pots or brass pitchers as they dance nimbly, pirouetting and then swaying with the soles of their feet perched on the top of a glass, on the edge of the sword or on the rim of a brass thali (plate) during the performance.

The accompaniment to the dance is provided by the male performers singing melodious songs and playing a number of musical instruments, which include pakhwaja, dholak, jhanjhar, sarangi, and harmonium. 

Traditionally, this genre of dance was performed by the female performers belonging to the Jat, Bhil, Raigar, Meena, Kumhar, and Kalbelia communities of Rajasthan. It is assumed that this genre of dance was evolved from the exceptional balancing skills of the females of these communities developed to carry a number of pots of water on head over a long distance in the desert.

Speedliting Mr. OneLight | Photographer:  Syl Arena | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

In the Speedliter’s Handbook I have a chapter on shooting portraits with one Speedlite. Who better to shoot as the lead-off subject than Mr. OneLight himself? So, while I was sitting in on Zack’s workshop, my eyes kept wandering over to this heavy steel door in the corner of the studio. Twelve hours after the workshop started (and several hours before it would end), I set up my gear during a break.
