IN THIS ISSUE
Robert Bannister, Hard Life
I did notice on my return when I downloaded my images and started processing my pictures how most of the frames seemed to be at a distance I contem plated this and wondered if my subconscious had kept me at arm’s length from a scary world, that you know is there, but you would rather just keep it swept under the carpet. Maybe I felt it was a disease and I would be tarnished if I got too close. After all, this is beautiful Yorkshire, the place of my birth, these places to the outside world do not exist.
Thanks to us, the street photographers, people see the real world.
Robert Bannister, the man from Yorkshire does not suffer fools. In fact, he does not seem to suffer at all, and has a love of life that is undisguised. This is served up with some extraordinary B/W work from his trusty Fuji X-series cameras.
Michael Kennedy, Makati Street
Some time ago, I needed to step away from my life and be someone else for a long weekend. I gave myself a “kitchen pass,” and offered a plausible narrative about my solo experience to the one who loves me.
In less than four hours, I was in the back of a taxi riding through the traffic-clogged streets of Manila to a hotel recommended by a friend.
“Boss, this your first time in Manila?” the driver asked.
I dislike small talk with foreign taxi drivers, who often want to run you to a goofy tailor shop, a dubious jewelry store, or a cheap whorehouse.
“Yes,” I said. “This is my first time to Manila.”
“Boss, where we go?”
“The City Garden Hotel in Makati.”
“Boss, that big Red Light District. You gonna have good time there.”
Before I returned home, I knew my friend would be delegated to an outcast for his advice.
Michael Kennedy, is an American photographer, writer, and reconteur who lives in Seoul. Although photography has always been his passport into other worlds, he has also managed to write hundreds of love letters to several women with names that begin with “S”.
Orna Naor, Philippines under a cellophane wrap
Although I travel a lot, and have seen poverty in Cuba, Guatemala, India and more, this journey made me sad and more determined to tell the story of the Filipinos. Someone might see it; someone might have the means and will to do something.
Orna Naor was born in 1960 in Jerusalem; married + 2, residing in Tel Aviv, Israel. Street Photography attracts her especially for its vividness; the people, the dynamics, the activities, the esthetics, the connections and sensitivities.
Elisa Santoro - Salvatore Uccello, Pripyat
The persistent ticking of the dosimeter is a sound and a sensation that we will never forget - along with the deafening silence of Pripyat. No one can forget this experience.
Elisa Santoro (Milan, 1982) developed a strong curiosity and a fervent interest in what concerns not only his city but all that surrounds it thanks to an excellent spirit of observation
Salvatore Uccello (Milano, 1974) always fascinated by technology, discovered a method that combines art and pragmatism, thus managing to communicate emotions and feelings otherwise unexpressed, approach- ing photography fifteen years ago
Karlo Flores, Surrealistic Philippines
