Nazar Furyk – Province

Nazar Furyk

Province

This series is about the everyday life of young people in the province, about a way of everyday life where life drugs and alcohol are present, about the days that go unnoticed and they aren’t really any different, whether it is a weekday or a regular working day. I’ve started taking pictures quite a long time ago. And I can’t say why and how, I do not know, just at some point, I realized that the moments, which at first glance are quite ordinary for someone, are really important and unusual for me. Such a usual life, one just needs to cover, because it can be interesting for others. I do not know if the viewer needs to see these photos. Sometimes it seems to me that no – they’re too personal because I’m not a third-party viewer, because I’m also part of this everyday life.​

Sarah Lowie – Sixmille

Sixmille

Sixmille is the post code of Charleroi. An ancient industrial city in Belgium, called “The black city”. Formerly covered in coal dust, Charleroi is particular, strange, awkward. A small town where almost everybody knows each other. And here I am, coming from the outside. Discovering a fascinating world, a universe completely different than what I used to know. They let me come, knowing I was a photographer. I came back the next weekend, and the weekend after that… Then every time I could. I started to live with them. To follow their routine, to enter in their privacy. And their daily life. It became mine. I became one of them. They became my family. A world made of parties, lies, laughs, weed, troubles, excitements, manipulations, betrayals, dreams and derision, alcohol… A world build around the present moment. We were enjoying life, fully. An african mentality on the european territory. An way more authentic world then the one I knew before. Intense. The one that awakens instincts. The one that shows what adrenaline really is. A world that challenges everything.Reality. No. Your reality. A love story is born there. Between me and one of them. Django. Immersed and overwhelmed by so many things… Let me introduce you the rapper group, Madil City Gang.

Caleb Stein – Down by the Hudson

Caleb Stein

Down by the Hudson

‘Down by the Hudson’ is an ongoing project, a record of Caleb’s walks and interactions – mostly along a 3-mile strip of Main Street – in Poughkeepsie, NY. Poughkeepsie is a small city – population around 32,736. Approximately 19% live below the poverty line. Recent years have brought a great deal of economic hardship to this lively, character-filled place. Some people attribute this to the downsizing of IBM’s local headquarters. Others say that fault lies with the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall, or the additions to the highway system, both of which have de-emphasized the role of Main Street. Some blame local colleges – Vassar, Marist, the Culinary Institute – for their lack of engagement with the community. In any case, Poughkeepsie is still a beautiful, resilient city with beautiful, interesting people. Lots to learn from them, no question about it.
