Photography is integral to what we do here at Australian Mountain Bike magazine. We rely on photos that do more than just show a bike, a rider or a trail. We need photos that tell a story, that create an emotional response, and leave us wanting to find out more about the location, or ride our bikes, or get on the phone to call some mates and plan an epic day on the trail. The right photos make us more stoked on our sport, and we need to make sure that’s exactly what we put in our magazine.

Et voici les LensCulture Black & White Photography Awards

Même si nous voyons le monde en couleur, la photographie en noir & blanc a tenu un rôle prépondérant dans nos imaginations pendant plus d’un siècle et demi. Chez LensCulture, nous avons toujours adoré l’incroyable simplicité et la puissance évocatrice des images en noir & blanc. Pour nos tout premiers Black & White Photography Awards, nous voulons découvrir les meilleurs photographes du monde entier qui s’expriment dans des nuances infinies de noir, blanc, et gris. Nous recherchons des œuvres jouant de la relation dynamique entre lumière et obscurité, et couvrant tous les sujets, que ce soit photo de rue, portrait, Beaux-Arts, paysage ou autres.

MonoVisions Photography Awards

This photo of a Bosnian gypsy boy was taken during a wedding party in a gypsy camp on the outskirts of Rome. In particular, this melancholy look represents a little of all Gypsy children born in a very hard and sometimes cruel reality, which gives them no hope for the future (Accomplice of all this is also the very low schooling of the younger generations). These authorized camps today have become large Ghettos where in addition to overcrowding, and the presence of large quantities of urban waste that make the camps more similar to large open landfills, different ethnic groups are forced to live together. Often these ethnic groups also belong to different religions such as the Orthodox Christian and Islam. All this does nothing but make the environment highly explosive. Next to all this there are many illegal situations, famous for example is the phrase: “Gypsies make more of the drug”. Words used by the boss Salvatore Buzzi, intercepted by the Police in the investigation “Mafia capital” that overwhelmed the administration of Rome in 2015.

Imagine, dream; bend and break the rules. That’s what I’m aiming for. GRVTY2 is a series of deconstructed architecture that tries to show us what would happen if suddenly there wasn’t gravity anymore, what would the world look those first seconds when nothing is capturing us.

Huge waves on the Icelandic west coast after 2 days with winds over 100 Km / h. The winter is ending and the snowfall alternated with the sun’s rays. The main difficulty in obtaining this image was to stand close to the cliffs in the gusts of wind.
