Looking Back

PRESENTED ON MAY 14, 2014
IN ST. AUGUSTINE @ VOL 4

Walter Coker looks back over twenty years of photography and shares with us what it has taught him about compassion. The world can be a big and cruel of only the strong, smart, and rich survive. This is not all entirely true, and some get left behind, pushed aside, and even abused from the rest of the pack. Walter shares his photos and stories to remind us that we need to show more compassion everyday. Not only to each other, but with the nature that lives with us. 

"Presentation of the Day" on December 9, 2014.

Cuerpo a cuerpo

BY ROBERTO MALDONADO ESPEJO
@ VOL 5 ON MAY 22, 2014

Es una abducción sobre el cuerpo femenino visto como un acontecimiento. Esto es: como un espacio dentro de otro espacio que se modifican mutuamente en una continuidad incognoscible porque el pensamiento es lento en comparación al cambio.

Estas fotografías parten y se dirigen, a la vez, a dos imposibilidades. La primera es cultural: la incapacidad masculina de interpretar a la mujer. La segunda es conocerse a sí misma prescindiendo de El Otro.

Compassion is Photography

BY LAINA BROWN
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

Laina Brown is an art student at the U of M, a social advocate, and owner of her own business Laina Brown Photography. She loves to enter into people’s monumental events or everyday lives to document and artistically render their memories as a collaborator with them. This love has taken her to spaces like Winnipeg’s “Meet Me at the Bell Tower”, to spaces such as Auschwitz and Treblinka with the March of Remembrance and Hope, to the boarders of Eastern Turkey, and to beautiful weddings all across Western Canada. In each place it is the people she is most interested in, and how they make meaning from their environments - listening and compassion as the keys to successful photography.
