„…Flor Garduno has been described as a „poet-photographer.“ Her powerful images of native peoples throughout the Americas, along with her symbolic nude studies and lyrical still-lifes, bridge the threshold between the sacred/temporal worlds, and allow viewers to glimpse what Carlos Fuentes called „the moving portrait of eternity.“…“

Lucas Foglia – Photography

„…Since 2006 I have traveled throughout the southeastern United States, befriending, photographing, and interviewing a network of people who left cities and suburbs to live off the grid. Motivated by environmental concerns, religious beliefs, or predictions of economic collapse, my subjects build their homes from local materials, obtain their water from nearby springs, and hunt, gather, or grow their own food.

All the people in my photographs are working to maintain a self-sufficient lifestyle, but no one I found lives in complete isolation from the mainstream. Many of my subjects have websites that they update using laptop computers, and cell phones that they charge on car batteries or solar panels. They do not wholly reject the modern world. Instead, they step away from it and choose the parts that they want to bring with them…“

Die Ruinen von Detroit

Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre: The Ruins of Detroit

French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre have documented the decline and decay of Detroit through its buildings and structures that were once source of civic pride (schools, churches, hotels, stations), but now “stand as monuments to the city’s fall from grace.”

Over the past decades, Detroit has suffered a post-industrial decline far worse than any other American city. The once booming city has seen its population fall from 2.5 million in the 1940s, to just over 1 million today, with 1 in 3 people unemployed.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Mondays with Lieke Romeijn

Although I’m not sure we’re sticking with the whole Sunny Sunday title, we are definitely having a Monochrome Mondays. Why? well simply because it feels more fitting, if there’s any day of the week that ought to be in Black and White, Monday does.

This series was shot for Dream and Awake, a collection of vintage dresses from around the world that have been redesigned and given a new life. Lieke did a great job at creating a dreamy atmosphere in her pictures, there seems to be a sort of mist between the subject at the lens, as if she’s actually dreaming.
