The FloodEarly in 2020, Jakarta was hit by a big flood. On January 3rd, I visited Bekasi, a neighbourhood on the eastern border of the city that was heavily affected. The road was crowded. The vehicle delivering the aid had trouble getting through. Garbage trucks and residents’ cars parked on the sides added to the traffic congestion.— andry dilindra.
Vancouver’s 100,000 on “Climate Strike”The well-being of our environment is extremely complex. Human activity results in numerous intertwined, complicated chains of effects that affect everything around. The world’s scientific community agrees that, overall, we are warming our climate and continue to impact our essential resources for future survival negatively.— Dmitri.
Of Pine Cones and TreesSuddenly I kick my foot against the little pine cone. I stop and look down, aware that I almost stepped on it. Had I not stopped, I would have tread on it and perhaps destroyed it. I stare at it for a while and at all the other pine cones around it. It’s then I realize this small movement of mine is important: it is proof that elements can be altered by humans in their own environment, if ever so slightly.— Maite Pons.
Gender & Identity
What They HideCheekh translates to “scream” from Urdu. This series is my, as of an artist, cry to society. Women are often regarded as symbols of beauty and grace. These ideals, however, are intertwined with a horrifying and ugly existence. My works focus on the concurrence of the sacred and the profane.— Mahnoor Nasir Khan.

Take CareMany sojourn to build better futures for themselves, and above all, their children whom they’ve had to leave behind. Female migration has become increasingly prevalent in Italy. As public welfare struggles to quell the growing need for assistance, women, mainly from Eastern Europe fill that demand.— benedetta.ristori.
Self-Portraiture & CancerIn the summer of 2017, I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune condition that was connected to the one word nobody ever wants to hear: cancer. Following many scans and blood work, a splenectomy, a bone marrow biopsy, and chemotherapy, a year later, and my lymphoma is in remission.— Lisa Toboz.
Simon Ridell’s Wet Plate CollodionSimon Ridell is a fire, health and safety risk assessor who lives and works in the Scottish Highlands. The man is driven by the spirit of adventure, which in his case means trips and climbs across the local rugged terrain and coastal cliffs. Simon owes his love for the physical escapades to his father.— Dmitri and Si.
R.E.M.Do our dreams work as some sort of defragmentation? How does this random reconstruction of images and information visualize so many discordant elements in such a significant way? I have always been intrigued by the influence of dreams and all the surrealistic projections of our subconscious.— Lefteris Paraskevaidis.
Moments in Between Madness — Book ReviewMoments in Between Madness presents a series of photographs from the George Floyd protests in New York City between May 29ᵗʰ and June 3ʳᵈ 2020.— Dmitri.
An American Protest“History repeats itself” is a truism almost as old as history itself, and for a good reason. Patterns established early seem to absorb into the psyche of humanity for generations to come, playing out in societies repeatedly. America’s original sin, slavery, was embedded in our Constitution in a coded way, for the word never appeared there, yet the horrific practice was made lawful.— Robert Castagna.
