The swap

Schermata 2013-10-14 a 11.40.45

Took part last project by Stuart

The Swap is an ongoing portrait project.

It is a very simple concept.  On two separate days two photographers photograph each other and create
two portraits.  On day one, person one is the photographer and the other is the subject and on day two
they swap roles so that the photographer becomes the subject and visa versa.

The idea of being in front of the camera is abhorent to a lot of photographers but for those who are
willing to take part it is an opportunity to create something collaboratively with another photographer.

The photographers are encouraged to sprinkle their magic and be creative with their images.  They can
be as simple or as elaborate as they want, as literal or as abstract as they wish.

This summer the character that caught my attention was definitely Laky!

With his unique style has been one of the most anonymous transgressive 70s;

globetrotter, adventurer, transgressive, adventure sports pioneer!

#5 issue-Isole

Fedro on Voicesmag for #5 Issue – Isole

Fedro006

Questo tema mi piace, l’ho voluto, l’ho atteso.

Mi piace non tanto perché ne rivendichi la paternità o, da isolano, la biografica appartenenza, ma perché il termine al plurale racchiude in sé un arcipelago di interpretazioni tutte a loro volta interessanti. E poter scegliere il materiale, valutare le proposte, interpretarne le sfumature – questa volta più di altre – è stata una sfida appassionante.
Le isole di cui chiediamo conto non sono solo geografiche; lo scopo non è fare un campionario vacanziero di “saluti da…” ma quello di approdare ad ambiti diversi e raccontare isolamenti, isolani e isolati, indipendentismi e introspezioni e ancora: lutti, aree verdi, prigioni e solitudini.

Buona visione.

Among the less wealthy, limousines are often hired during special events (most commonly weddings, proms, and bachelor parties).

The car meaning evolving from a type of cloak and hood that was worn by the inhabitants of the Limousin region that later resembled the covering of a carriage and much later used to describe an automobile body with a permanent top that extended over the open driver’s compartment.

Year ago i started the ape/car project, i’m back in the central Apennines during the winter, found different atmospheres and landscapes between urban and rural.

These are the places where the vehicles move and exist.

The selected points represent the areas where i’m doing researches for the photographic project.

 

pocket rocket

I found in a supermarket this beautiful model of Chevy Nova SS 67.

The Nova was considered a ‘pocket rocket’ during the muscular era, the most popular engines of the third generation had six-cylinder.

Chevrolet, also known as Chevy, is an automobile manufacturer and a division of General Motors.

One of the series of the compact cars produced by Chevy is known as the Chevrolet Nova, originally known as the Chevy II.

The first generation Chevy Nova was produced from 1962 to 1965.

La Bestia

This is my personal journey on a freight train called “La Bestia” with migrants through in the south Mexico along the state of Tabasco and Chiapas.
Every day hundreds of undocumented migrants from Central America hop on the infamous Mexican cargo train trying to reach the United States. Along this extremely dangerous route migrants are regularly assaulted, blackmailed, kidnapped, raped and even thrown from moving trains.

Our Lady of Tepeyac

Our Lady of Tepeyac on Colors Lab

Recently read an article about the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico, which made ​​me think.

Other complementary pilgrimages in honor of the Virgin, are the sacrifices that the faithful do, like running barefoot to the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

This is something that comes from ancient traditions and the indigenous peoples who today are traditionally or simply,  because it’s a way how people are grateful to favors received.
Pilgrimages around the country starting in October 12 to December 12, the day that marks the appearance of the Virgin.

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is the only Madonna to have been used as a flag by revolutionary army, and also is probably one Aztec deity under a false name.

 

Do you think that the arrangement of the stars on the dress is casual?

Oh no, it’s the stars position that was in December 12, 1531 in Mexico City!

Who is really  this sacred figure?

We are sure that Guadalupe Isn’t Tonantzin?

We are the true Aztecs?
