An ongoing series exploring the physical space of the city by Chicago-based photographer Clarissa Bonet (previously featured here). Reconstructing mundane events Bonet’s experienced or witnessed herself, “City Space” offers a personal interpretation of the urban environment as well as its psychological and emotional impact.

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:
“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.
She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

A lovely series by New York-based photographer Shane Lavalette (previously featured here). Based on one of Swiss photographer Theo Frey’s (1908–1997) signature series, Lavalette retraced Frey’s steps, traveling to the same 12 villages Frey photographed in the 1930s.
