BY YULIA SKOGOREVA

In Dancing in the Office from PKN Tokyo Vol. 136, photographer Yulia Skogoreva found herself on an interesting and unexpected path that took her from linguistics, to dance, to photography. In her latest project she juxtaposes two completely opposite elements of society, busy salarymen and dancers, and the results are delightful. Have a look!

Local Markets, Global Interactions

BY LAUREN WAGNER
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

Commerce is so ubiquitous that we do not even see it as a center for the exchange of goods and ideas. Are the market places the hearts of the cities that pump and distribute the flow of human activity or the brain where the personality of a city resides?
