This week, we are proud to present the work of photographer Camillo Pasquarelli ( @camillopasquarelli ), who won 1st place in our first-ever LensCulture Black & White Photography Awards. In his series “The Valley of Shadows,” Pasquarelli’s black and white images are the entry point into the larger story he is trying to tell. His portraits are posed and cinematic, but the story is far from fiction. The photographer’s project is about the militarized Valley of Kashmir, and a group of individuals who have literally been caught in a militaristic crossfire. In 2010, the Indian government provided security forces with a new weapon: shotgun shells filled with hundreds of small lead pellets. Defined as “non-lethal,” the pellet guns are used to keep urban protests under control. Pasquarelli’s series contains portraits accompanied by x-rays of the same subjects, all of whom were passersby randomly targeted and blinded by security forces. Stay tuned and read on for the stories of these individuals all week. - Firdous Ahmed Dar, 24 years old, Sopore. “I was walking to a shop and there were no protests around, but suddenly a Central Reserve Police Force vehicle arrived and opened fire. I screamed in pain and some people came and took me to the hospital. I just bought a new autorickshaw – local taxi – by selling a piece of land, but now I can’t use it. With it, I would have been able to sustain my family instead of being completely dependent on them, as I am now.” Firdous was hit by 6 pellets in his left eye. He completely lost his right eye, which was hit by 7 pellets. - Image © Camillo Pasquarelli - #thevalleyofshadows #camillopasquarelli #kashmir #kashmirvalley #valleyofkashmir #pelletgun #militarization #documentaryphotography #docphoto #blackandwhite

This week, we are proud to present the work of photographer Sophie Gabrielle ( @sophie_gabrielle ), whose series “Worry for the Fruit the Birds Won’t Eat” is an exploration of her own experience with cancer using optics, chemical interactions, and an investigative process of photographing something invisible to the naked eye. The project started as a coping mechanism for addressing the impact of having all her close male family members diagnosed with stage 4 cancer over the last two years. The images evoke a sense of the unsettled, fragile, daunting and overwhelming. Throughout the series, medicinal botanicals and portraits sit alongside archival images found in medical research catalogs, creating a space in which the past and present co-exist. The images are left under plates of glass to catch Sophie’s skin particles, and are then re-photographed manifold times, entwining the artist to create an abstract self-portrait. These small cells impact the image so that they are transformed into something new—a growth from the product of its surroundings. This week we shared a number of selected images and texts from the artist, and you can also read our article on Sophie’s work in the Magazine section of our site. And, as always, share your own images with us by using #LensCultureDiscovery ! - A continuous cycle. - © Sophie Gabrielle - #sophiegabrielle #worryforthefruitthebirdswonteat #foamtalent #foamtalent2019 #medicalphotography #cancer #artphotography

Throughout the series, medicinal botanicals and portraits sit alongside archival images found in medical research catalogs, creating a space in which the past and present co-exist. The images are left under plates of glass to catch Sophie’s skin particles, and are then re-photographed manifold times, entwining the artist to create an abstract self-portrait. These small cells impact the image so that they are transformed into something new—a growth from the product of its surroundings. Stay tuned this week for a number of selected images and texts from the artist, and be sure to read our article on Sophie’s work on the Magazine section of our site.

Waiting patiently, your mind reeling over the many outcomes that could arise. - © Sophie Gabrielle - #sophiegabrielle #worryforthefruitthebirdswonteat #foamtalent #foamtalent2019 #medicalphotography #cancer #artphotography

This week, we are proud to present the work of photographer Sophie Gabrielle ( @sophie_gabrielle ), whose series “Worry for the Fruit the Birds Won’t Eat” is an exploration of her own experience with cancer using optics, chemical interactions, and an investigative process of photographing something invisible to the naked eye. The project started as a coping mechanism for addressing the impact of having all her close male family members diagnosed with stage 4 cancer over the last two years. The images evoke a sense of the unsettled, fragile, daunting and overwhelming.
