Mudec, staircase

Mudec, staircase - Maria Cristina Pasotti

The David Chipperfield-designed MUDEC (Museum of Cultures) in Milan is a multifunctional centre devoted to the diverse stories and cultures of the globe.

中菜西作/Chinese food with Western food styling - Yuhung Chang

Taiwan is a nation with lots of delectable cuisine. Everyone used to think that Taiwanese food was inexpensive and served in substantial quantities. The photographer wants more people to be aware of the exquisite ways in which our Taiwanese street food may be presented by showcasing works and food styling this time.

Ada e Annaide

Ada e Annaide - Cesidio Silla

One of the last ladies to live their entire lives wearing the traditional Scanno attire was Ada and Annaide. One of the most popular Italian destinations for photography is Scanno. Many photographers have lived and worked here, including some of the most well-known: Henry Cartier Bresson, Mario Giacomelli, Berengo Gardin, etc. In this photograph, Ada and Annaide are positioned to resemble the most well-known portrait of the two outstanding Italian magistrates, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino.

Rebel without a cause - Anna Baptist

Humans have long had a similar interest in myths. They narrate stories about our true selves and the people we want to become.
While gods and demi-gods were the main characters in those tales in antiquity, now we commemorate modern-day heroes, such as James Dean, who is unrivalled in his ability to personify the rebellious spirit.
When you hear saxophonist Jan von Klewitz perform, you immediately think of the ideal of the intrepid, always free James Dean. The charm of Jan von Klewitz fits this idea.
The picture is from the "Rebel without a cause" 2021 album.

Infinite Variety

Infinite Variety - Fabian Huebner

Natural beauty may be displayed in an infinite variety of colours and shapes. And when we make an effort to see beyond the limitations of what our eyes can perceive, we may catch a glimpse of nature's limitless beauty. This picture of the Swiss Alps was taken at dusk and depicts a number of beautiful mountain ranges in various strata.


Letters to the Loved Ones - Akiko DuPont

After finishing the letters, numerous participants said that "writing is different from texting." Since the COVID-19 lockdown started in the spring of 2020, the photographer has been asking individuals in London whether they may send letters to persons they've been thinking about. She has heard that since the lockdown began, texting has increased, but phone conversations between friends are increasing even more. While we are anxious about what the virus may bring, we are also more lonely than ever and want for connection. In our highly linked world, letters are one of the most private means of communication.

Flower Flow

Flower Flow - César Llaneza Rodríguez

Lepthotrix Discophora bacteria flourish in a marshy area near Lugones, Asturias, during the primroses' blossoming season. This bacterium oxidises metals including iron, chromium, and manganese to produce an iridescent-colored biofilm layer. I saw that when the photographer proceeded through the water, the layer split up into smaller fragments and they floated at full speed. The photographer has been working on an artistic series on this subject for several years. The notion of seeking a contrast between the particles' motion and the flowers' repose came to him.

Alexandru - Istvan Kerekes

In Targu Mures, next to the largest fertiliser chemical industry in Romania, lives shepherd Alexandru. Since the 1970s, the chemical plant that makes fertilisers has been damaging the area around Targu Mures, where it is located, as well as the local population. According to Alexandru, he is accustomed to the distinctive scent of ammonia.

Blue Dragon

Blue Dragon - Steven Manolakis

Lake MacLeod, a big inland salt lake covering more than 20,000 acres in Western Australia's Gascoyne area, is home to one of the largest inland mangrove populations in the world as well as a system of wetlands. These settlements provide as a natural home for a wide range of fish, birds, and other creatures. Seawater is flushed into channels below and out through vertical shafts, sinkholes, and other surface vents inside the lake by ocean tides, which provide support for the wetlands.

Elvira's Peony - Maja Strgar Kurecic

These are pictures of the peony Elvira gave me. The photographer enjoys photographing the flowers that her friends and loved ones give her. She does this in an effort to retain the memory of that joyful moment of receiving that was accompanied by feelings of intimacy and affection for the person who gave me the flower. She aims to capture the eternal beauty of a flower that never fades with her shooting technique and lighting. She took pictures of the petals through water to highlight their fragile structure.
