Sergio Volani – Cambogia

A country a bit left aside in the past years, perhaps because of its tragic and fairly recent vicissitudes, Cambodia is a fascinating jewel rich in history for a traveler and even more for a photographer. Not only the famous site of Angkor Wat, one of the most visited destinations in the world, remained hidden Continue Reading

Roberto Manfredi – once upon a time there was a sea

In recent decades, a huge environmental disaster has taken place, almost unknown, but perhaps the most serious; serious because  widely foreseen since 1964 by specially commissioned studies and yet consciously pursued. The Aral was a large salt lake, almost three times the size of Sicily. So big that it is called “sea”, the Aral Sea. Continue Reading

Francesco Carmignoto Kazakistan.Mangystau

In the Mangystau between faith and religious wonders. Beket Ata Shrine and Bozhira Valley Ours is a long ride in the desert steppe of Mangystau, Kazakhstan. From this country we are preparing to discover the spectacle of nature, but also curious manifestations of religious faith. We stop near a red brick building with a parade Continue Reading

Sara Aliscioni – the tailors

The Tailors series was born from my personal photographic research of the trades in the largest city of Morocco, Casablanca. Made immortal by the cult film of the same name, the economic capital is the business destination for excellence. Using petit taxis as a means of transport, or old red cars driven by private individuals Continue Reading

Hamzeh Mohammad Hosseini – Being with Iranian Armenians

Every year, after the first month of summer, countless Armenians from all over the world are eager to travel to the first cathedral of the Christian world to participate in the religious ceremony that coincides with the murder of Saint Thaddeus and martyrdom of his Christian followers. This church is located 20 kilometers northeast of Continue Reading

Stefano Bianchi – Armenia

An unusual travel destination, Armenia is a beautiful country rich in history, monuments and beautiful landscapes; His people, then, are hospitable as few and ready to welcome the traveler in the simplicity of their homes, offering him a smile and a coffee if necessary. In terms of landscape, what makes Armenia recognizable are the numerous Continue Reading

Mauro Brienza – Kyrgyzstan

A pristine landscape accessible only in the warmer months, asleep under meters of snow for the rest of the year. Life in the steppe flows slowly; A hard existence, unchanged for centuries, of men and animals together. Here the nomads open the doors of their yurts and welcome the traveler who is passing through these Continue Reading

Nicola Ducati – My Red Pamir

Traveling to remote places I realized that beauty is everywhere and is found in the diversity of people. Their uniqueness makes humanity special. This awareness and the need to preserve our roots together with our planet should guide our every gesture, our every thought, our every choice. Kyrgyz women live in the dust of high-altitude Continue Reading

Sergio Bertolotti – Gujarat

Crossing Gujarat by car is a singular and unexpected experience, You travel on a single wide road, a clear line between cultivated fields, farmers at work, shepherds with herds of cows and flocks of goats and sheep, until you reach small villages where daily gestures -beyond time- gain the scene. Deviating from the most beaten Continue Reading

Nadia Cianelli -The Space in Between

Traveling in the Amazon was like coming home, returning to a feeling of communion with nature and its sacredness. Water, sky, trees, ancient dances and songs, the Amazon is all this and much more, a suspended space and time, where visible and invisible, natural and supernatural merge and merge. Every discomfort and every difficulty are Continue Reading
