it's interesting the contrast between the static and the moving foot, but ... in every movement it's always necessary a fixed point?

Democratic Books

it's an innovative project ...
Everybody can apply. Just send us 30 images at 11 x 11 cm with 300 dpi and a text. If we like the serie, we will edit it and make a democratic book. The book will be published at our webpage for downloading. You will recive the images back and a printable file (offset) on CD.

The 'problem' it's the high quality of the already four published books:
  • Rio - Santos 9 Places, a snapshot of the brazilian society :: by Dirk Gebhardt
  • Park der Wünsche :: by Dirk Gebhardt
  • New Work Barcelona, city of light :: by Dirk Gebhardt
  • An Indian Recollection :: by David Klammer
Download them from DesingWork. Some parts of the web are only in German, but who's worried ...

I'm not a fan of children photos but 'Park der Wünsche' it's a good example of this kind of photography. On the other hand 'An Indian Recollection' it a remarkable work about the city of Bhopal. Do you still remember the disaster? or did you already forget it? some of the photos are a little bit disturbing but it's necessary show them ...

Self portait

Spanish TV is becoming worst day by day: yellow journalism, stupid reality shows, news with liars politicians ... last night was the premiere
of La Granja an stupid contest of several famous/infamous living in a XIX century (in theory) farm ... resuming with this boring perspective I take my camera and trying to shot a self-portrait, after severals trash-photos I get one that doesn't disgust me to much, this is the BW version

I'll keep on trying to get one with more personality, but perhaps I haven't enought ...
