This Orca mom and her little one approached me slowly taking a good look with the mother staying in front as if she was letting her young one have a look without getting too close to this unusual creature. What made this encounter so magical was the light. The low afternoon sun was breaking through the surface of the cold, dark and greenish water and created some of the prettiest sunbursts I've ever seen.
Я верю, что мы всегда окружены невидимым глазу волшебством. А это моя фантазия на тему, что было бы, если бы могли его видеть...
I believe the world is full of magic, invisible to the simple eye. And here is a small fanatasy of what would happen if we could see it...
Belchenflue in Switzerland is known for its autumn foggy mornings but it takes a lot of luck for the fog to occur on the right height and at the right time. This November morning was all that a photographer can dream of for a sunrise and I was even more delighted when I saw another person approaching with their car which gave me a perfect opportunity to add light trails to this amazing moment.
The grief and loss of control over one's own life is spreading endemically. Every day we face the drastic restrictions to combat the Covid19 pandemic. At the same time, the big multinationals are pushing for smart cities and artificial intelligence. The World Economic Forum sees itself as a mouthpiece for BigTech and openly propagates transhumanism, the science fiction scenario of the fusion of humans and artificial intelligence. Ordinary mortals find themselves at the mercy of these developments and ask themselves, what are now modern human rights?
Inspired by Jan Saudek and Nobuyoshi Araki, this neo-expressionist figurative art project aimed to condense symbols and visual metaphors. The well-known Italian performer Francesca Pellegrini, alias Stella di Plastica, was engaged as a model. She worked with lots of very important and famous italian artists and bands, such as Måneskin and Litfiba.
The image, which is intended to be iconic, tend to be taken from below.
THE photo presents a source of light, a reflection in the photoshop lens, like a video, as if they were actually still frames of moving images. The reflection is placed above the head of the human figure, a metaphor for the psychic dimension as well as the search for hope and positive solutions.
The colour palette (skin, analogous scheme), costumes and post-production were carefully coordinated. So the entire post-production process was conceived and carried out with a view to reinforcing the idea of the project, thus to create a mood and look of the image that moves away from strict realism in favour of a more dreamlike impact and to evoke figurative art par excellence, plastic art.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 3-х лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the three best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination. Rating in the nomination "Mobile Photography" is taken into account to a lesser extent for rating formation. The list shows one photo of the author with the best rating.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
