‘Leman’ - MIFA 2018⁣
Olivier Robert // ⁣

“This project started in 1995. It is a long-term work about the esthetic value of the man-made objects built on the shores of the Lake Geneva in France and Switzerland (the lake stretches on the borders of both countries). I have been photographing Lake Geneva for more than 20 years now. My approach consists in depicting a personal vision of these man-made structures built above the water. Over time, these structures deeply affect the perception of the landscape one can have. They gradually belong to the landscape until they are completely mingled.”⁣

‘Nomads’ - TIFA 2017⁣
Carlos Bracho // ⁣@brachh

“With this series, I'm really focussing on a voyeuristic look at women and men in a natural space, as they were there without knowing they were being observed, analyzed and followed or with very little interaction with the viewer. I've experimented with multiple ways both at the moment of taking the image and in post-processing, with the intention of making a more out of the reality feeling, playing with colors and with the shapes they form while interacting with each other. Each image is a mixture of both experimenting and planning on which colors should I use for every idea, how the distortion and the blurriness give it a more ethereal feeling, and how they interact with each other, themselves and nature.”⁣

‘Every Breath You Take’ - TIFA 2018⁣
Klaus Lenzen // ⁣

“The picture was taken in summer 2017 from 35 individual images of swimmers at the triathlon in the Duesseldorf (Germany) Media Harbor. I was able to take a picture of them from above, while the athletes crossed a pedestrian bridge capturing their very individual "breathing techniques“. I was inspired by the work of Andreas Gursky, therefore I took the individual images with the highest possible sharpness. That enables me to display or print the overall picture in large format.”⁣

‘A Tribute to Orlando’ - MIFA 2018⁣
William Ye // ⁣

“From my fine art project "the Wounded" series. This one pays a tribute to the Orlando mass shooting. Unlike my other images, every character in the image is trying to escape from the horror, but the road to escape seems to so far from reach...”⁣

‘Copacabana Palace | Edilane - A mother’ - TIFA 2017⁣
Peter Bauza // ⁣@peterbauza

Edilane and 3 of her 7 kids are resting on a mattress on the floor. She is pregnant with a boy. The official social housing program “minha casa, minha vida” provided her an apartment, but drug gangs surround the area of her supposed new home that beside a dangerous favela, Cidade Cidade de Deus. She doesn’t want to expose her kids and especially her oldest daughter (14) to possible dangerous situations. So, she prefers to stay here and tries to negotiate with the government for a new home. Edilane is a strong woman, and she never gives up.⁣

‘In The Room’ - TIFA 2018⁣
Francesca Cesari // ⁣

In the room is a series of portraits taken in the moment a mother puts her child to sleep through breastfeeding. The mother’s solid presence consciously supporting the baby’s passage into unconsciousness, renewing the ritual, everlasting gestures of former generations of women. A suspended time of devotion and tenderness that coexists with the alienating repetitiveness of a daily routine.⁣
