Having lived in large cities for the majority of his life, London-based photographer Aldo Filiberto is drawn to the infinite unknown that lies beyond the hustle and bustle of daily life. This hunger for exploration is what brought the artist to foreign shores of Iceland, where he went for long meditative drives on unpaved roads, immersing himself in its unpeopled landscapes.

Photography Website Makeover: The Human Condition


The Human Condition’s Squarespace Website

Argentinian photographer Rodrigo Llauro and Australian filmmaker and writer Natalia Cartney created The Human Condition as a platform for exploring and documenting diverse communities ranging from the vintage automobile subculture of Biloxi, Mississippi to the indigenous tribes of Peru. As our world becomes increasingly global, The Human Condition shines light not only on the value of our differences but also on the essential core that ties together all of humanity.

Whether they are celebrating the beauty of the Indian Holi festival or opening an ethical and moral dialogue about cockfighting in the Peruvian Amazon, Llauro and Cartney display an unfaltering cultural sensitivity. They used Squarespace to build a website that showcases their without distracting from the potency of their message. Creating their own site allowed them to focus on what really matters: giving voice to peoples throughout the world. Without having to worry about complex coding, Llauro and Cartney are ready to carve out the time for their travels. We spoke to Llauro about the new site.

Photography duo New York Is Killing Me was founded by Kamil Tyebally and Saami Siddiqui as a fun and creative way to share their work with the world. As a side project for the Brooklyn-based roommates, NY Is Killing Me has accrued a portfolio that is both distinctive and multifaceted, with projects spanning the genres of portraiture, landscape, documentary, and commercial photography. Siddiqui, who serves as the team’s Art Director, and Tyebally, the man behind the camera, have both lived in diverse regions around the globe, bringing to each shoot both the technical acumen and cultural insight gathered from years of travel. Together, they have developed a carefully honed yet youthful aesthetic that renders everything from models in New York to the wooded trails of Big Sur in stunning detail.

NY Is Killing Me is just one of many projects Tyebally and Siddiqui are currently working on, and the former has recently began Documenting Dubai, in which he chronicles his own perceptions of the vibrant city. They spoke to us about their work, what it takes to make it in New York City and why they use a Squarespace online photography portfolio.

Although traditional boots (kamik) and pants made from animal hides and furs are still used during the hunt, more modern materials are also appearing.

Icebergs to the south of Ilulissat, home to one of the largest icefjords in the world which features on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. In the Inuit language Kalaallisut, “Ilulissat” means “icebergs.”

Ever since he was a young boy, Sébastien Tixier wanted to go to Greenland. His father had told him stories about the “Eskimos,” and young Sébastien imagined them, the Greenland Inuit, in their thick animal skins, living on the ice, surrounded by soaring cliffs of untouched snow.

Rescued from Oblivion: Magnum Photographers Release Obscure Images for Print Sale

USA. Brooklyn, NY. 1992.
Alessandra Sanguinetti. USA. Brooklyn, NY. 1992
I took this photograph, “The couple” in the summer of ’92. That was long ago when everything and everyone still felt endlessly fascinating and mysterious, and when photography was the only way I could take it all in. I’d left Buenos Aires to spend the summer in Brooklyn with my grandfather and spent every day roaming the city taking pictures and hurrying back home at night, excited to develop the film in the blacked out laundry room. I distinctly remember uncurling the wet film this frame was in, seeing it and being in awe at how a portrait could transcend anything I had seen or intended. —Alessandra Sanguinetti

Jonas Bendiksen Georgia. Abkhazia. Sukhum. 2005.
One of the absurd things about photography is the amount of pictures one takes that end up in a box, never to be seen again. Nearly all of the images I’ve ever taken have ended up unseen in a box. I took this image in Abkhazia in 2005, while I was working on my book “Satellites.” It shows girls doing their hair in front of a bombed out apartment block. It was a sweet little human moment. But later that same evening I took another image of an old woman walking in front of the same building that was slightly more dramatic. And just like that, the image of the four girls had to go. —Jonas Bendiksen

A few months ago, Magnum photographers challenged each other to dig up a single photograph that they have always liked, but for one reason or another, has gone unpublished and/or to some extent unnoticed. The photographers explored the depths of their attics and hard drives for an image that they wanted to give new life.

On November 10th, these photos were made available as signed, $100 #MAGNUMSquare Prints in their online store. On November 14th at 5PM (EST), orders will close and the prints will be signed.
