Steve McCurry, recognized universally as one of today’s finest image-makers, has won many of photography’s top awards. Best known for his evocative color photography, McCurry, in the finest documentary tradition, captures the essence of human struggle and joy. Member of Magnum Photos since 1986, McCurry has searched and found the unforgettable; many of his images have become modern icons. Born in Philadelphia, McCurry graduated cum laude from the College of Arts and Architecture at the Pennsylvania State University. After working at a newspaper for two years, he left for India to freelance. It was in India that McCurry learned to watch and wait on life. “If you wait,” he realized, “people will forget your camera and the soul will drift up into view.”

We are not alone

We are not alone by Jong Ki Love

“I see things that you wouldn’t believe, old people hanging from magnolia trees and  hokkaido houses further away from la Puerta de Alcalá, skates sliding along the aluminum in Cuesta de Moyano. I see security cameras shinning in the dark pointing at the bolards in Lavapies and skaters galloping on the rusty iron of Reina Sofia. I have seen Muelle refugee in the imperial city. All those moments will be lost in time like cognac tears in a carajillo. It’s time to live.”  Jong Ki Love

“Yo veo cosas que vosotros no creeríais. Ancianos encaramados a magnolios y tejos hokkaido más allá de la Puerta de Alcalá, patines deslizarse sobre el frio aluminio en la cuesta de Moyano. Veo cámaras de seguridad brillar en la oscuridad apuntando a los bolardos de Lavapiés y skaters galopando el hierro oxidado del Reina Sofía. He visto a Muelle refugiado en la ciudad imperial. Todos esos momentos se perderán en el tiempo como lágrimas de coñac en un carajillo.
Es hora de vivir.”

magical fantasy worlds

These magical fantasy worlds are the creative work of Manuel Rodríguez Sánchez. The graphic design student and photography enthusiast skillfully crafts his own worlds, making great use of clouds, textures and contrast. His sweetly surreal photo manipulations remind me of Sarolta Bán’s or Luis Beltrán’s work. I just want to jump in and explore.
