Dance of Vitiligo by Leonardo Fabris

dancevitiligo

Vitiligo is a skin condition that affects its pigment, generating clearer spots. Some say it is a disease, for us it is a way of art. Those white spots become the paint, while the skin becomes the canvas. Pure art, that makes the person who has it SPECIAL and UNIQUE.

Leonardo Fabris who lyrically states "The Vitiligo disease patches move to the rhythm of its development as the dancer's body moves to the rhythm of the music", creates the next delightful images that could not escape from our eyes. Take a look.

German Photographer Anna Sterling has been involved in photography since she was a child and has developed her own style over the years.

Anna focuses on self-portraits and conceptual photography – especially digital outdoor photography in daylight. Through digital image processing, she transforms her ideas into unobtrusive and artistic compositions.

Through her art, she gives the viewer plenty of leeway for interpretation. She lets them finish the stories themselves and thus motivate them to think outside the box. Melancholy, dreams and the abysses of the human soul are reflected in her surreal and timeless photography.

Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, which erupted in fire on Monday April 15th, 2019, is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in the world. Notre-Dame Cathedral has been at the main iconic building of the city of Paris for over 850 years. Dating back to its consecration in 1163, the building itself is a stone and stained-glass representation of Biblical stories and morals. A historical landmark, a pillar of the Arts and a centre for spirituality that is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture.

Today, April 15th of 2019, the cathedral was on fire causing significant damage, including the collapse of the main spire and the entire roof. Due to the collapse of the roof many valuables were destroyed. Notre Dame Cathedral contained one of the oldest surviving wood-timber frames in Paris, involving around 52 acres of trees that were cut down in the 12th century. Each beam was made from an individual tree. So the ingenious lattice of historic woodwork was nicknamed "The Forest.". All this has been lost to the massive fire, according to the cathedral's rector.

miladfb

Milad Safabakhsh  is an Iranian  Fine Art photographer. He  started photography with minimalism and slowly moved towards conceptual photography. However he still kept his minimalistic view in all of his works.  Milad was able to make a name for himself internationally and was even achieved numerous prizes.

Milad was always fascinated by the world of holography and after reading Micheal Talbot’s book ” The Holographic Universe” and many more after, the concept of holographic changed his perspective and the way he saw everything. He launched a series dedicated to holography recently and I named it “The Space in Between”. The reason of it is that the observers are in the middle of a dark space and this dark space represents their thoughts and perspectives about this universe.
