Richard Sandler's The Eyes of the City reviewed by Serge J-F. Levy for Lens Culture

Thursday, January 5, 2017 | News

Pleased to share Serge J-F. Levy 's perceptive and thoughful review of Richard Sandler's The Eyes of the City.

Editing and sequencing Richard's remarkable photographs taken over 24 years was an exciitng challenge.

Serge Levy wrote: "Unlike many monographs made by street photographers, Richard’s poignant sequencing and the use of juxtapositions in spreads highlights the interdependency of his images. While he may not have been consciously aware of their connection at the time of exposure, his photographs become part of a dense network of interrelated thoughts and political concerns. At times, the sequencing is delicate and quietly suggestive; at others, the photographs unsparingly pound us with unnerving particulars that distinguish living in a metropolis from all other ways of life."

Indeed, in The Eyes of the City there is a relentless need to show the polarity of class and race that on a daily basis is thrust upon urban-dwellers. Richard’s unique photographic approach reveals his fierce compassion yet also his critical commentary;....." read on......

Endurance by Omar Havana/ FotoEvidence Press

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 | News

On April 25th, 2015 Nepal was hit by the devastation of Mother Nature: an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 that killed almost 9,000 people and injured more than 22,000. In the aftermath of that fateful day in April, almost three million people were made homeless, as hundreds of thousands of homes and other buildings were turned to rubble. In the months following the earthquake, aftershocks continued to hit the country on an almost daily basis; a magnitude 7.2 hit the country in May adding more devastation.

The book Endurance by Omar Havana is a humble tribute to and a legacy for those who are working hard to see their nation rise again. It tells the story of Nepali people resilience, the story of a life spirit that spreads, like the smiles on their faces, over the streets filled with debris and the ruins of their homes.

The book is available at Visa pour L'Image offical bookstore La Poudriere  and at FotoEvidence
