Kadir van Lohuizen | Rising Tide at the Maritime Museum

Kadir van Lohuizen's long-term project on the sea level rise will be exhibited at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Rising Sea Levels project is designed to highlight both the immense complexities associated with in-island and inter-island/country movement, as well as the specific human rights implications involved with such involuntary movements.

 
I have been looking at the global consequences of rising sea levels caused by climate change. Today, no one any longer doubts that glaciers the world over are retreating, and even more worryingly that Greenland and Antartica are melting at an increasing pace.

South Side | Jon Lowenstein

Chicago's South Side neighbourhood is home to one of the largest and oldest African-American communities in the United States. It is also one of the poorest areas of the country. Over the past decade, the largest housing developments in the United States have been demolished, disrupting the housing of approximately 100,000 of the poorest residents.

In this documentary project, Jon Lowenstein explores the struggle that ensues to maintain a semblance of order as these neighbourhoods crumble before our eyes.

South Side - a project consisting of large-format photographs, ephemeral, poetic and personal stories - is part of a shared history in the middle of a given space, a post-industrial fusion of a city in full gentrification.

An Autobiography of Miss Wish | Nina Berman

An Autobiography of Miss Wish is a story of two closely related lives, the photographer and her "subject", working closely together to create a unique enigmatic book that pushes the boundaries of documentary narration.

The project brings together heart-rending archive footage depicting crime scenes and flashbacks, psychiatric hospital reports, diary pieces / snippets / personal notes, personal effects, letters and messages between the photographer and the protagonist: Miss Wish.

 OBOCK, DJIBOUTI - MAY 2018 
Under Arabic graffiti that reads “You cannot search for the beauty of love, it comes to you” armed fighter jets have been drawn on the opening of a canvas tent in Obock Camp. Sketched by Yemeni refugee Mohamed Al Abid, the drawings depict the bombing raids in Taiz from which he fled with his pregnant wife.
