Recently, Magnum photographer Moises Saman hosted a workshop in São Paulo, Brazil. At the end of the event, he selected Martha Slivak’s portfolio to be featured in British Journal of Photography. “I chose Martha’s work because of her effort to work outside of her immediate comfort zone,” he tells BJP. “Martha is new to photography, and her interest in the medium is not technical or journalistic; instead it comes from a place within herself where raw feelings and emotions dictate her direction. I was really impressed by her capacity to approach a sensitive topic in a short amount of time, and by the softness with which she approached her subject.” We …

Anna Kuperberg: This is a very simple story about the exuberance, trials, and weirdness of a regular childhood. The kids were in a neighborhood in Austin that I found just by driving around (I had never been to Austin before). Everyone in Austin is friendly and approachable, so shooting documentary work …

Irina Sokolova: Though we had no particular topic or theme during the workshop, I decided to compile the story from numerous pictures taken during wonderful wanderings in wintery Paris. I’m very much addicted to the enigmatic process of carving images from everyday life, finding unexpected allusions and colours. When I examined all the pictures taken during the workshop, I found that the imperial red …

We speak with Olivia Vale about her work. BJP: What is your story about? Olivia Vale: There’s a synchronicity between a thumbs-up sign as “it’s all good” and “I’m all good. Invite me into your car”. I hitchhiked around Austin for three days. Most of the time was spent standing on the roadside – a tall blond girl in a fur-hooded arctic parka, blowing periodically on her thumb to warm it up. The cars …

[bjp_ad_slot] We spoke to Anjali about her experience. BJP: What was your project about? Anjali: Delhi. A rural Delhi, often unseen. Cattle living along with men. Taken care by the women. These women collect the fodder grass, feed, milk, clean the cowshed, make cowdung cakes, churn butter. They do everything; apart from the other household chores. Sometimes, they are helped by the children. They are oblivious of the Delhi we know. And …

It’s a slum like any other, yet it’s different. It’s a slum of puppeteers and of street artists. But that tradition is dying out since the young generation is not keen on learning this art and …
