An homage to a great ballpark, a piece of history, and a Boston institution...Fenway Park. A little peek into one of the oldest American ballparks.
Baseball. America’s Pastime. Although it is not as popular as it was in the past, for many it is a religion. There is no better place to worship the great sport of baseball than in America’s most beloved ballpark, Boston’s Fenway Park, which is home to the Boston Red Sox.
Rooted in tradition and history, Fenway Park turned 100 years old this year. And I figured there was no better way to celebrate than with a photo shoot! When you enter onto Yawkey Way, you can’t help but feel excited. Red and blue flags line the outside of the park, and businesses never fail to show their support for their beloved Red Sox. It’s festive and fantastic.
Although its fun outside, the magic happens inside. Getting to be on the Green Monster and looking out over an empty field is a surreal experience. You can’t help but wonder what it would have been like to see Ted Williams play. It may be small compared to modern ballparks, but it is without question, my favorite. Not only because I love being able to sing “Sweet Caroline” with other Red Sox fans, but because Fenway Park is a part of history. And when watching a game there, you feel like you’re part of something bigger than yourself.
A self-portrait is a piece of a long narrative. It is a parcel of where you have been and what is precious to you. It is a silent version of a hello or an impactful sentence about the kind of photographer you are. Make your next statement count with a little help from your Lomography friends.
Great lyric, though layered with fictions, is a piece of personal history. And so is the video. Inspired by their collaborator’s words and music, directors still turn to film for a touch of authenticity and soul.
Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

It's a modern utopia, a one-of-a-kind in the world: Brasília. The capital of marvelous Brazil is the wet dream of every architecture aficionado, the masterpiece of Oscar Niemeyer. This architect created an illusion of better living; thus, Brasília was declared an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. This is a homage to lines, curves, and boldness.
This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places.
