Photoessay: melancholy and longing in Hanoi — Ming Thein | Photographer

The inaugural Cord Prize – Contemporary art photography

Photography has become a universally accepted, unchallenged, medium of contemporary art. Concomitantly, photography’s capacity to influence our everyday lives has become exponentially important with the ubiquity of visual social media and the opening up of the possibilities for us to communicate and disseminate our photographic images independently of institutional support.

The Urban Portrait

One of the most exciting things of all cities in the world is not exactly how they are built or how tall their buildings are, I am not usually so impressed by crowds or big avenues or amazing malls. But I am usually very impressed by how different and diverse people are in every city in the world and of course Barcelona is not an exception to this rule.

Las Fotos que Atesoramos

Diana PhotoLas fotos mas atesoradas y que más queremos ocultar, normalmente cobran un valor increible, el valor de lo prohibído, no sabemos realmente si es por la intimidad que muestran o por que revelan la humanidad y simpleza de alguien, que a pesar de pertenecer a una élite no es más que otro ser humano en el mundo. Son estas imágenes que muestran nuestra fragilidad y vulnerabilidad las que controlamos con más cuidado. Qué tipo de imágenes atesoramos?
