All Beauty

All Beauty - Frauke Fischer-Ikeda

Beauty is in Everyone, everyone is beautiful.
Being different is beautiful

In beauty photography , only perfect ideals are often shown. This started to bore me in my work as a beauty photographer and I wanted to show how much more fascinating people and beauty there are. In this series I portraied Tamara a model with Down Syndrom.

Born in East Berlin in 1981, Frauke Fischer studied ethnography and the history of Indian art before becoming a fulltime freelance photographer. Her portfolio spans both beauty and fashion, with a style that exudes refinement and confidence.

Identity Perspectives - Rebeka Legovic

The inspiration came from the building itself. The strong shapes and powerful colours gave me the idea of creating a combination between clothes and colours, perspectives, sky and clouds. Models are twins and in that way the identity given to us by certain clothes and combination of colours, or postures and positions we assume in space is questioned.

The Visionaries

The Visionaries - Amber-Jayne Bain

Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington supports the noble work of a large pool of researchers across wide ranging disciplines. This project, initiated and art directed by David Lewis, was for the purpose of honouring a selection of these individuals, to highlight the projects they are working on, and the integrity each of them brings to their field.
Ilan Noy, Taehyun Rhee, Elizabeth Stanley, and Ocean Mercier are represented in these portraits, which serve to illustrate ideas that connect to the revolutionary work they do.

G. Verdi's opera - Nabuco 2021 - Piljoo Hwang

G. Verdi's Nabuco 2021 - directed by Stefano Poda, directed by Hong Seok-won.

The word 'han' is a word that expresses sadness and is the most Korean expression of sadness.

Director Stefano Poda's opera Nabucco 2021 is an abbreviation of the ethnic sadness with the word "han." The history of the desire for liberation and independence, which is common to the history of Italy and Korea, was solved with the word "han" to convey a message of hope.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere. - Tina Sturzenegger

It's a story about trying and failing.

You should drink healthy smoothies but instead you smoke cigarettes like there's no tomorrow..you should focus on one thing but you're multitasking in your bathroom,
things go wrong but you still believe in fortune cookies,
you should not have a snack in your bathtub but you're doing it anyways.

The story about trying and failing goes on and on.
But there must be lights burning brighter somewhere.

Time Traveling To Edo Era - Masahiro Komuta

A modern flavored kimono was taken in beautiful bamboo forest which has a long history. The bamboo forest was expressed like traditional ink paintings using black & white like tone and smooth blur. Viewers may feel they are time traveling to Edo era, seeing this modernized kimono with traditional ink painting expression.

Cosplay & portrait fashion photographer based in Japan. His photograph is mainly focused on a woman wearing a special costume in a special location to descript an extraordinary world.

The world today!

The world today! - António Coelho

It started with an analysis of plastic, I associated new ways of "mitigating" this problem (perhaps creating others) and extended it to more problems as well, generalized consumption of natural resources, climate change, but also the extinction of species, new energy sources and their impacts. The current war in Ukraine, and other world conflicts, from the east to Africa, to the idea of resorting to nuclear weapons.

The Hands Of Melody - Samuel Mélia

A musician expresses himself through his instrument, the music played is then the expression of the musician, of his emotions, of his feelings... of all that he is.

Samuel Mélia was born in France, starting with studies in jazz music (saxophone), he then turned to photography.

Producing mainly photographs of jazz musicians (a world he knows very well) Samuel is currently working on a Fine Art series.

The Hands Of Melody

Expresso - Gilles Auroux

The little poetry of coffee is an appeal to all our senses: the brown mix of dark liquid crowned by a lighter brown foam, the delicate tinkling of a last drop falling in the cup, the aromatic smell exhaling from the smoke and finally the taste in your mouth and the warmth in your throat. A true challenge to convey in one picture since photography mostly deals with only one of our senses...



Hotel Little Stories - Betty Manousos

It's no secret that I am a cinema and cinematography enthusiast. After watching the "The Grand Budapest Hotel" movie a few years ago, I developed an interest in historic hotels as well as contemporary ones. Every hotel has a story to tell.
This intense color of the fine modern furniture of the lobby just caught my eye. Taken in Athens, Greece 2022.
