DMITRIJS Breaking Time – Julius Reque

Dmitrijs Breaking TimeJulius Reque Vancouver, Canada

.

I was walking with my friend, Dmitrijs, and taking photos around Vancouver. We went inside this building that had an interesting sculpture-like set of stairs that lead nowhere, it just brought you up. As I look behind the camera to take a photo he stepped into the frame and started climbing. In a split second I decided to hold the shutter until he got to the middle. I didn’t really think much about it until I transferred the photos to my computer later on, and scrolling fast through the series he seem to be actually moving in a single frame, like in a movie. That’s when I thought I’d superimpose the frames into one.

Killer instinct, in this case photographer instinct, is what drove Julius toward a great image. Nowadays big cities flourish in modern and original architecture, taking pictures of them is fairly easy and common. What’s more difficult is inserting human presence in a congruent and meaningful way; here almost a cinematic way: the meeting point of photography and video.

cold, BRUTAL, dark, PHOTOGENIC – Winter in New York

Obvious talks about the brutality of New York’s winters, I definitely agree, but what about the beauty?

CARHENGE – celebrating myth in NEBRASKA

 

Carhenge, along Country Road 59 near the city of Alliance, Nebraska, is a replica of Stonehenge, England. Built by Jim Reinders as a memorial to his father, is formed by American cars all painted in gray spray paint; it was dedicated at the June 1987 Summer solstice.

Frequently used in popular culture, it has made appearances in movies, Omaha by Dan Mirvish, on books covers, Velocity by Nancy Krygowski, and mentioned in travel books, 1,000 Places to See in the USA & Canada Before You Die.

LE AMERICHE IN SCALA 1:1 – un libro di MICHELE MOLINARI

 


LE AMERICHE IN SCALA 1:1
In viaggio, da New York a Buenos Aires.
.
Copertina morbida, 256 pagine.
Ed. Lulu.com, 2008.
.
Prima tappa: Penn Station. Ultima tappa: Retiro. Ma mica diretto, no. Molte tappe di approssimazione successiva collegate da treni autobus e traghetti, tutti mezzi pubblici sia ben chiaro, magari anche qualche tratta a piedi. Perché se è l’Altra America che voglio conoscere, tanto vale che cominci da subito. E veda cambiare i volti e gli abiti, veda mutare le valli in deserti e montagne e campi coltivati, ascolti i dialetti e le musiche e quello che la gente vorrà raccontarmi sulla vita, la loro, la vita nelle Americhe.

Un viaggio on the road ricco di emozioni e incontri ben raccontati.

Nato a Mantova nel 1960, Michele Molinari è giornalista e fotografo free lance, ama le grandi città ma non può fare a meno degli spazi aperti. Lavora appassionatamente per fare del viaggio un modus vivendi, senza mancare di occuparsi di temi sociali, stili di vita e fatti di costume. Attualmente vive a Buenos Aires.

Leggi alcune pagine del libro su Ruta 40.
