OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
ViewFind is a highly immersive visual news platform for newsreaders to experience news like never before, blending your community contributions with their editorial expertise to offer something truly revolutionary: multi-perspective visual news.
Named after a trickster in local folklore that is simultaneously revered and feared by the inhabitants of the Peruvian city Cerro de Pasco, El Muqui is a celebration of the culture of this community of 70,000 people that is slowly being encroached upon by the large, profitable mine it surrounds
“Consequences” addresses the current threats to natural and cultural diversity, sites where modernity, tradition, and wild lands collide. It is an elegy for what is vanishing and a celebration of those cultures on the fringe of modern society resilient enough to maintain their vibrance.
The non-space as a symbol of supermodernity. Malls as artificial cities filled with people that stay even if they don’t intend to shop. Street photos in color and monochrome meant to capture both shadows and reflections, loneliness or temporary communion, waiting and watching and longing.
