Selected works by Andrej Cikvari an amateur photographer from Vinkovci, Croatia.
Some people may say that taking pictures doesn’t make you a photographer, but I am one. I am a photographer because taking pictures has gotten in my blood; it’s my main and greatest passion. I learned how to observe my surroundings in a more beautiful and deeper way. I no longer walk on the street looking nowhere; now I look everywhere. I find scenes worth capturing and saving from loss caused by time in the most simple things that may seem like dull or boring, but I find a way to present them in a new light that will offer a person a whole new perspective on the subject.. and that’s why I call myself a photographer.

The Militant Baker: THE FIRST ANNUAL BODY LOVE CONFERENCE http://www.themilitantbaker.com/2014/04/the-first-annual-body-love-conference.html
"I can’t really express what an absolute JOY The Body Love Conference was! The Body Positive movement is often a white cis gendered heteronormative space. It was clear and obvious that Jes M. Baker and team were committed to radical diversity, with panels on trans identity, disability, mental health, challenging the thin white ideal and more and a wide array of identities and bodies in attendance, I feel grateful for the camaraderie of humans; the people down for a REVOLUTION of radical self love! The Body Is Not an Apology is grateful for the chance to be in community with so many divine beings! Here’s to many more chances to convene this UNAPOLOGETIC wave of world changers!" –Sonya Renee

Selected works by OğuzhanCürgü aka KalbiCamdan 21-year-old amateur photographer from Samsun, Turkey.I take the pictures with no ideas about their last position. I don’t like the thinking while takeing picture. I feel the machine like one part of my body and then I take it in a camposition with my daily or weekly experiences. It happens like that.selected by Tu recepcja
Selected works by American photojournalist Steve McCurry (b 1950)
“What is important to my work is the individual picture. I photograph stories on assignment, and of course they have to be put together coherently. But what matters most is that each picture stands on its own, with its own place and feeling.”
City Reflections Andrea Stone
"While visiting Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2011 I became consciously aware of the incredibly beautiful abstract patterns reflected in the windows of the Downtown. I started to associate to the way metal and glass, like structure and openness, represent the tension between elements in modern architecture. While the metal framework demands conformity, the glass reflections seem to explode, almost in defiance of this structure and, in the end, seem to transcend their captors."
