Finding Inspiration in Collaboration

Great photography takes the viewer on a journey, sometimes to a world we know but from a new perspective. Sometimes that journey is to a place of wonder and fantasy. Fantasy is a realm Hasselblad Ambassadors Kevin Then and Sails Chong specialise in.

Using the Hasselblad X1D and H6D-100c, the work that Kevin & Sails produces invokes a strong sense of fantasy, romance and wonder, utilising breathtaking locations and advanced lighting techniques to create images that have a striking cinematic and other-worldly quality to them.

Capturing The Complexity Of Human Emotion

The emotive project ‘The Quiet Storm’ by Canadian photographer Patty Maher is a series shot in and around Caledon, Ontario. The project aims to tell the private side of personal struggles. She says “I was hoping to portray quiet restraint, controlled emotion and isolation. The series is meant to portray moments of personal struggle in a way that both reveals and hides the full story.“

Urbanistan

In today’s frenetic, urbanized world of consumption and speed, these photographs find and create spaces of contemplation and peace—moments that allow you to take a breather from the city—any city.
Photographs and text by Matjaz Krivic

As soon as you hear the word “Urbanistan,” your imagination is whisked off into the traffic mayhem of Calcutta; the tawdriness of the neon-sex nightlife in Bangkok; the unbelievablely structured—yet simultaneously frenzied—Tokyo; the suffocating and dusty streets of the (hardly) living body of decaying Cairo; the roundabout of the hedonistic and aggressive Rio, the unstoppable, narcissistic Manhattan. In short, the global supermarket of turbo consumerism.
However, Matjaž Krivic’s “Urbanistan” is a miraculous anti-thesis to all this. It is a story from the other side—a story of the quiet loudness on the margins of total existential, religious, economic and geopolitical chaos. A story that speaks of the indestructible spirit and the eternal search of inspiration that enables survival.

World For All

Idea: in the fast-paced city, people always complain about lack of time or space to do more. However, we felt otherwise. Taking this insight forward, we decided to use negative space in our communication to simply illustrate the point. Which proved that there is always room for a pet in their life. The message urged people to attend the Adoptathon.
