Bruno Barbey (b.1941, Morocco/France)
"Most of the time I take photographs to document for posterity, traditions and cultures rapidly vanishing as a result of changing consumer attitudes." Born in Morocco, Bruno Barbey studied photography and graphic arts at the Ecole des Arts et Métiers in Vevey, Switzerland. Over four decades, Bruno Barbey has journeyed across five continents and numerous world conflicts, though he does not consider himself a war photographer, he nevertheless covered the civil war in Nigeria, Vietnam, the Middle East, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ireland, Iraq and Kuwait. His work has appeared in most major magazines in the world. A prolific author who often exposes and expresses himself in book form, Barbey is especially known for his free and harmonious use of color and has frequently worked in Morocco, the country of his childhood. He has been exhibited internationally and his photographs are in the collection of numerous museums.

Não se fazem saudosismos como antigamente
Avenida Consolação, em frente ao metrô Paulista, São Paulo, SP.
Street artist LUDO is bouncing about Asia at the moment and recently emailed over some images of his works in the streets of Bangkok… such a photogentic city.
Fun fact: Bangkok currently holds the Guinness record for having the longest name of a place. Apparently “Bangkok” is just the short version because the city’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”
Nastya Kaletkina and Her Moody Black and Whites
Any analogue enthusiast worth his salt will know what features an analogue photo needs to have to stand out in a sea of digital shots. And they might as well just stop looking for pixels in photographer Nastya Kaletkina’s work.
Um tanque de combate, usado na Segunda Guerra Mundial, foi cenário para uma obra de arte.
Em um protesto pacífico contra o envolvimento dinamarquês na guerra do Iraque, o tanque foi coberto com tricô e crochê rosa. A cobertura é composta de mais de um 4000 quadrados feitos por voluntários da Dinamarca, Reino Unido, EUA e vários outros países.
A possibilidade de ‘tricotar suas opiniões’ dá um aspecto importante ao projeto. Importância além das palavras. A maioria das pessoas pode tricotar um quadrado de 15x15 centímetros, e foi essa forma que escolheram para se expressar.
