Flow by Tymon Markowski

I live in Bydgoszcz since childhood, a city that recently turned its attention favorably towards the Brda River that ends in it. In order to know my river better, I set off on a trip. For a year I visited places in the river’s vicinity, looking for surprising or extraordinary pieces of reality. The whole trip turned uncanny when I discovered second place named Bydgoszcz - a small village near the source of the river. The distance between these two Bydgoszczs is 106 kilometers in a straight line. It is an unusual space in which I began to „Flow”.

A Shaded Path by Elliott Verdier

This work highlights the generational disparities between those nostalgic of an abolished USSR order and modern westernized youths born after the fall. It covers the trials of a young, woebegone country struggling to simultaneously form a national identity and keep apace with a global economy. Relics of a past era mingle with the faces of a population frozen in transition.

When You’ve Stopped Combing Me, I’ll Stop Hating You by Katarina Radovic

In Senegal, beauty is an important subject of debate. I wished to document the states, which point to the “before” and “after” moments in this process of dressing-up; which evoke the feeling that there is a goal in the process of the transformation of the hair, and with that the entire head, into a special art form and cultural entity, with all the symbolic implications: the desire to be liked and admired.

Land of No-Return by Viktoria Sorochinski

When I visited this village again for the first time after many years of immigration, I was astonished at how lifeless and miserable it looked. Those who remained there were almost exclusively the elderly. They are living out their last days in those places, neglected by the government and often abandoned even by their families. They are gradually disappearing together with their traditions and their deteriorating homes.

I Dreamt of Summer by Oleksandr Ivanchenko

“I dreamt of summer” is a visual journey to a place, filled with fun, joy and happiness. Place, free from troubles and worries. Place, where you're surrounded by love and care and not burdened by the hardness of the outside world. It's a place of my childhood summer.  Many times before, I dreamt of returning to it. I wanted to experience "the summer" again, spend a long hot day bathing in the river or in the lake, get up in the early hours of daybreak and set off for fishing or just relax in the cool shade of an old oak tree by the water.

#Ophelieandthegirls by Ophelie Rondeau

I think the female gaze is as equally important as every other gaze. We all see and perceive things differently, therefore it's important to evolve in a culture where every gaze is represented, for one to better understand others for instance. There is an obsession with the female gaze going on these days, and I think it's great to make and give space for women to share their vision, but points of view do not only differ according to gender but also to generations, origins, religion, and so many more aspects.

Konadu Basic School by Lisa Weatherbee

I traveled to the village of Tanoboase Ghana, in partnership with Photographers Without Borders and the Thaakat foundation to tell the story of Konadu Basic School, a free school started by a man named Clement Boamah.  He saw the need in a village where many children, particularly girls, didn’t attend any kind of school at all.
