Like, you know, whatever.
We love Solange Knowles! Here’s some beautiful photographs from her Losing You video shoot, taken by our very own Daniele Tamagni. The Sapeurs featured in the shoot can also be seen in Daniele’s brilliant book “Gentlemen of Bacongo”, which was featured in The Guardian back in 2009 - Check it out!
Dramatic pictures of five young children and their grandmother huddled together under a jetty in the Tasmanian town of Dunalley were captured by their grandfather Tim Holmes as the family took shelter from Australia’s wildfires in the water to escape the flames. The family was forced to stay in the water for several hours as homes around them were razed to the ground. The pictures, taken on 4 January have just been released. Click on the image for more
This wasn’t what I expected at all when I arrived at the beach of Qingdao city in China’s eastern Shandong province.
I was assigned to shoot portraits for a Reuters story on a Chinese airline company. We settled down to plan to board an aircraft with the company CEO, photographing him and other passengers on the plane. So, I booked myself a 24-hour round trip from Shanghai to Qingdao bearing in mind that during the half day in Qingdao I could shoot the green algae along the beaches which appears almost every summer.
However, my plan turned out to be a failure. The weather wasn’t hot enough so there was very little algae. I was about to head back disappointed until I glanced at these women swimming in the ocean. They were wearing full-size masks on their head which looked a lot like wrestler’s masks to me. I could imagine these women coming onto the beach very soon and starting to fight.
