“The war had taken away many things,” #Korean photographer Han Youngsoo (1933-1999) wrote in his book ‘Life: People in a period of recovery.’ “At the height of the Korean war, I was moving across the front lines as a soldier experiencing this tragedy, witnessing countless scenes that enraged me. But what was even more surprising […] was perhaps the ordinary fact that ‘people lived on’ nevertheless. Although a sense of futility, sadness, shock, and despair lin...

Atget, Charles Meryon & Rue des Chantres After writing about Atget, Kertész and Google’s photographs of a small street last year, I was in Paris and made a detour to the center to see what is happening at the Rue des Chantres. I shot the above photo trying to approximate the Atget, but I use a Rolleiflex, and did not crop the square to match Atget’s ratio. Searching for more history of Rue des Chantres, I came across this etching by Charles Meryon, 60 years before Atget’s photograp...

FEATURED ARTIST: Ann Greene Kelly Ann Greene Kelly’s sculptures are assemblages of stone, construction materials and day-to-day items. She “uses these materials for their associative and physical qualities, such as the memory of scraping a knee on concrete or the cold smoothness of a stone.” The artist explains, “I am interested in how the practical concerns of making a sculpture are informed by experience, like how the tightening of a belt both gauges the size of a waist and keeps p...

my relationship with little wayne’s music is a lot like when you’re at a fancy italian restaurant and the waiter comes over and presents a wooden grinder and is like “would you like parmesan with that sir?” and you’re kind of taken aback like “oh, my, why yes please” and then he pulls a gun out and shoots you in the fucking head, 2014 Image

Nangdrol, an 18-year-old Tibetan living in Sichuan Province, China, penned a farewell letter on February 19, 2012. Translated, it read:Long live His Holiness the Dalai Lama! Long live all the lamas and tulkus (reincarnations) of the Land of Snow. May Tibetans be free from China’s oppressive rule. There is immense suffering under China’s rule, and this suffering is unbearable. There is no way to further endure this Chinese occupation, its terrible rule, this torture without trace. In the end the...

Hi, my name is Xavier Bemelmans. I’m an amateur photographer based in Liège, Belgium. I recently sold my digital camera to focus on film only and i really enjoy it !
