ΓΑΖΑ: ΖΩΝΤΑΣ ΣΕ ΕΡΕΙΠΙΑ

Gaza: Living in Ruins Q. Sakamaki
"This is an aftermath story of Gaza, following the 2014 50-day war between Israel and Hamas. The war claimed the lives of more than 2,150 Palestinians, wounded more than 10,000 and displaced an estimated 300,000 people. On the Israeli side, at least 64 soldiers were killed and six civilians died.
I traveled to Gaza in the aftermath to witness the devastation for myself. I took a series of portraits of people living in the ruins of what used to be their homes. I intentionally shot them at night because my conceptual motif for this story is that these people have experienced the darkness of Gaza’s devastation physically and psychologically. This is something I want to shed light on.
Despite the despair that I felt while I was there, I have a dream. It is that someday, in the fresh morning light, I will be able to photograph the portraits of people in Gaza. Portraits of people who have hope.” ]











ΕΝΑ ΠΟΡΤΡΕΤΟ ΠΑΡΑΚΑΛΩ!

Creature Andrew Zuckerman
"Andrew Zuckerman’s comprehensive photographic catalogue of the natural world began with the CREATURE project. Substituting his minimalist visual language for the conventions of traditional nature photography, Zuckerman extracted his subjects from their environments and recontextualized them in the clarifying white space to distill each animal to its most essential qualities. CREATURE is aesthetically rooted in the illustrative indexing of 19th century biologists and the dioramas of natural history museums, and shares their preservationist intent. In CREATURE, Zuckerman explores the notion of photography as taxidermy and the hyper-articulated images provide the viewer with intimate and vivid access to the animal kingdom, including a number of rare and endangered animals. Alongside scientific classifications for all of the species included in the project, the CREATURE collection provides a contemporary document of the animal kingdom at close range"
