Jaz O'Hara

We woke up early for the two hour drive from the city, into the midst of the desert, and there it was... Barbed wire, security and dust; we had our passports and equipment thoroughly checked before entering. As we drove through the camp the vastness of it became clear, sand-coloured shelters in every direction, as far as the eye could see; the homes of 85,000 Syrian refugees.

Dusty, hot, chaotic, overwhelming and unfriendly. That's what I was expecting Morocco's 'red city' Marrakech to be like. From descriptions by friends, I didn't think I would like it, but hey - it would be an 'experience'.

For the last couple of years, I've collaborated on a number of photography projects with artists, barbers, men's clothing brands etc, so my main focus has been capturing men on camera. As a lover of history, my inspiration for the majority of the shoots I've done comes from the great men of art and early colour photography.

Jackie Kemp | Posted 10.03.2017 | UK Entertainment
Jackie Kemp

The treasures assembled in the monumental exhibition of Celtic art which opened at the National Museum of Scotland this week (March 10) painted, for me, a tremendously vivid picture of the peoples who left these precious things behind, buried in graves, hidden in hordes, stuck in the mud of tidal waterways.

Alice Instone

I started to collect the lists of other women and was overwhelmed by the collective unburdening as they shared their stories of how they wrote their lists and what they put on them. Nearly all the women I knew seemed to keep some sort of list and there was a confessional aspect to the sharing.

We marvelled at the glorious Duomo in the central square, the second largest cathedral in Italy after St Peter's in Rome, galloped through as many museums as possible and admired the chic shops and their stylish Milanese clientele.

Ordinarily when you look at a photo your mind fills in an approximation of what is not seen from the photographer's viewpoint. In Chloe Rosser's images, heads and limbs are missing at such impossible angles that the mind is tricked into the feeling that there is nothing else beyond what is visible. Each body's connection with humanity is severed.

I'll Always Go Back To Paris, Regardless Of The State Of Emergency

Alex Jackson | Posted 10.02.2017 | UK Universities & Education
Alex Jackson

The real attack on French culture here is the parliament's decision to reinforce the state of emergency, by no way a banner for tourists or French citizens alike. We look at France as the birthplace of modern democracy, and the country's founding call for liberté is something we should not take for granted the world over.
