• My Room by John Thackeray – In 2010, John Thackwray started his long-term photographic project, the “My Room Project”. The concept is simple: photographing young men and women who were born in the 80’s and 90’s, in the places they sleep, all around the world, and interviewing them about lifestyle, local issues, education, religion, or love. – It naturally started with John’s friends in Paris, and little by little the project became bigger. More than a thousand candidates from 55 countries have already participated.  Some are rich, some are poor, some live in a traditional way, while some choose the modern lifestyle From a Buddhist temple of Nepal to a Native American  reservation, from a jail in Mexico to Palestinian refugee camps, John is documenting different lifestyle everywhere. – All these photographs are a testimony to the world that surrounds us. Combining visual anthropology and social photography, this conscious project make us aware of the diversity of lifestyles, destruction of our traditions and the rise of inequalities.

• What is Burning Man…? It depends on who tells you, and how it’s told. It depends on whether it’s your first time or if you are a veteran, if you go alone or accompanied. It even depends on the alignment of the stars that year. This summer, the partners of La Despensa agency, faithful attending the BM for 7 years, decided to take all their staff with them to the desert of Nevada. And as it seemed that there was some more room in the 11 caravans that went to Black Rock City, they decided to invite some more crew to share this adventure with them. Thus I was fortunate to join the group of 51 cosmonauts and tell, with my little camera, how was the experience. Prepare paella in the desert, surviving sandstorms, find the Mayan Warrior at night at La Playa, watching sunrise and sunset and confuse both, feel the magic and energy in the same way that I feel the heat of the sun or cold of the night. All this and much more… paellacosmos.com/ ¿Qué es el Burning Man? …pues depende de quién lo cuente y cómo lo cuente. Depende de si es tu primera […] Read more
