Photo du Jour: Dandelion Seeds

Déjame volar II, 03. David Catá-2

For Let Me Fly, Berlin-based photographer David Catá shrouds his model in a veil of dandelion seeds, allowing the remnants of the expired flower to cradle her face like delicate, ghostly hands. Here, the fluffy seed becomes a physical manifestation of abstracted memories, recalling someone or something lost and irretrievable. However, memories, like the discarded germ of a dandelion, can also foster new life, borne from the remains of something long vanished.

For Iran’s Booming Consumer Culture, Cambodia-based photographer Thomas Cristofoletti traces the rapid growth of commercialist ideologies within the theocratic state. Here, Cristofoletti presents a resounding counterpoint to a controversial statement made in Cuba by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2012, in which the former president of Iran predicted the impending decline of capitalism, a system that he suggested was at the core of global unrest.
