Monica Matteuzzis insight:

Il ritratto è sicuramente la disciplina più antica dell’arte fotografica proprio per il fatto di derivare dalla pittura che, nella classicità lo prevedeva come una sua specifica e nobile attività. Questo è il tema dell’ VIII Festival Internazionale della Fotografia di Roma, che si tiene presso i locali del Macro fino all’11 Gennaio 2015.

Instagram Captions Will Now Appear on Embeds by Default

Instagram Captions Will Now Appear on Embeds by Default | photos tell stories - P h o t o T e l l i n g | Scoop.it

Big news for publishers and Instagram: Captions on the photo-sharing platform now appear by default.

The company has been quietly rolling out a new look for embedded photos on the web since last week. In addition to a bigger, cleaner design, with a narrower bezel around the frame, captions will now automatically appear below a photo or video. Previously, embedded Instagram photos in news articles or blog sites appeared without the original caption, which limited storytelling.

Mädchenland | Photographer: Karolin Klüppel

Mädchenland | Photographer: Karolin Klüppel | photos tell stories - P h o t o T e l l i n g | Scoop.it

Few kilometers from the border of India, German photographer Karolin Klüppel discovered the tiny, isolated village of Mawlynnong where ‘girls rule the world’. Made up of only 92 dwellings in the East Khasi Hills, the town uniquely operates as a matrilinear society, each family’s lineage traced through the surname of the wife instead of the husband. The result is a culture where female descendants are most crucial to the continuing bloodline and the youngest daughter inherits all family property. Fascinated by this rare singularity, Klüppel spent 6 months with the Mawlynnong women to create Mädchenland (Kingdom of Girls).

Along with the privilege of carrying the family name, girls are expected to take on many responsibilities at a very young age, often caring for 3 generations under one roof. As early as 8 years old, Mawlynnong females can run the entire household and tend to their younger siblings single handed. Despite their isolation from the modern world and a plethora of familial duties, the girls of Mawlynnong experience a life of freedom and reverence all their own.

Monica Matteuzzis insight:

For "the project "Mädchenland" Küppel spent six months in the village of Mawlynnong where people of the Khasi form the majority of the population. The Khasi are a matrilineal society. Here, traditionally it is girls who are of particularly importance and who play an exposed role in the family.

A debate on truth and photography in the digital age
Monica Matteuzzis insight:

"Public and photographers are ready to new forms of narration. The higher awareness of the interpretative quality of photography has provided the ideal environment for the emergence of new interesting ways to tell stories that were previously dealt with only by means of traditional reportage; these new ways are a cross between reality and a more personal and artistic vision of it.

Mois De La Photo - In the Heart of Intimacy: 30 Photographers | LensCulture

Mois De La Photo - In the Heart of Intimacy: 30 Photographers | LensCulture | photos tell stories - P h o t o T e l l i n g | Scoop.it
In today's hyper-connected world, personal intimacy can be hard to come by — these photographs (old and new) remind us how a good picture can put us back in touch with our inner, hidden selves and each other
Monica Matteuzzis insight:

What is real intimacy in the age of selfies?

We live in an age where images are everywhere, and where they are used for purposes for which they were not originally intended. Facebook is the main culprit and manipulates the process to its own ends. Are we all artists? No! Selfies, stolen portraits, and the constant insignificance of our banal existence makes those who make and distribute these images believe in a kind of visual and mental intimacy, whereas most of the time what they do simply reflects a desire to assert their existence through narcissism, egocentrism, or even voyeurism. This world — of screens, of social media, of popular opinion — is a dark room full of fantasy and frustration. 

Real intimacy is something different. It is first and foremost a rampart against the debasement of the self: it involves perpetuating our own mysteries and concealing our true desires. It means reining in our emotions. It means being ourselves.
