In collaboration with doSIguALes ProduccionesProtected Areas from Victoria Herranz.

Can a government decide over the woman body? Protected Areas explores the reaction to the spanish government’s propose to modified to change the abortion law for part of women than see limited their rights. Also, with an analogy between the woman body and the public area, it’s proposes the metaphoric relation between both than struggle area for the politic and ideological dominant powers in the actual Spanish society.

Dercho muejeres - Victoria Herranz
“The fact that a bill on abortion is proposed in 2014 in Spain after certain vested rights on voluntary termination of pregnancy taken for granted makes us think that what is private is actually defined by what is public…. Turning back to such an important debate and call into question the vested rights on voluntary termination of pregnancy have a violent component to the extent that makes more precarious the existence of women, who obviously are affected, not only by the possible law, even by the debate itself.”

Protected Areas is a work of the spanish authors Victoria Herranz photojournalist, Jose Mansilla anthropologist and David Cordero filmmaker.

My Mother’s Light – 30 Years Later

My Mother’s Light from Lenée Son

My mother immigrated to Vancouver, B.C. in 1983 after escaping the Khmer Rouge genocide in her native Cambodia and living in a refugee camp in Thailand for several years. During Pol Pot’s reign in Cambodia, my mother lost many family members, including her father. In “My Mother’s Light,” I explore how my mother’s history and strength have shaped my identity.

Birth is a Dream – Maternity in Africa

BIRTH IS A DREAM from Paolo Patruno

Birth is a Dream | Maternity in Africa
Multimedia documentary by Paolo Patruno

Every year, in Africa 200.000 mothers die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth; and for every woman who dies, many others suffer injury, infection or disability.
Every year 1,5 million African children are left without a mother.
A mother’s death is a human tragedy, affecting families and communities. Her death endangers the lives of a surviving newborn and any other young children; a mother’s death makes it harder for the family to obtain life’s necessities and escape the crush of poverty.
A great many of these deaths are preventable, when women have access to quality prevention, diagnostic, and treatment services; most maternal death and morbidity can be prevented when pregnancy and childbirth are attended by skilled health professionals (nurses, midwives or doctors).

Birth is a dream - multimedia documentary by Paolo Patruno

I named my photography project about maternity in Africa.”Birth is a dream”. I wanted to answer a number of number of questions producing this work brings forth.
What is a mother’s dream? How realistic is it for for them the dream of giving a safe birth ? Why safe motherhood is still a dream for the African mothers ?

White Squatters South Africa – The Kuhn family

Photofilm: White Squatters South Africa – The Kuhn family from Matt Tabaccos

Ruyterwacht, Western Cape, South Africa | 2011

George Kuhn (46) sweeps away dirt from the porch of his 5 x 4 ft metal sheeted shack which houses himself, wife Bridget (39) and four children, Brad (13), Jamie Lee (7), Karen (4) and baby Eileen (3 months) at a squatter camp for poor white South Africans in Ruyterwacht, Cape Town.

“The problem with the government is they don’t do enough for people like us” he says. Kuhn is one of many disgruntled poor white South Africans living below the poverty line who feel marginalized under an ANC Led elected government and affirmative action laws introduced since the end of apartheid in 1994.

White poverty in South Africa is estimated at 450,000, 10% of the white population and is a politically sensitive subject that receives little attention in the mainstream media “the same thing is going to happen in South Africa what happened in Rhodesia” says Kuhn, a sentiment echoed within the walls of many white South African households but rarely aired publicly.

Shot and recorded over the duration of a day, this photofilm explores the Kuhn family’s views and existence in a white squatter camp.

Is a British photojournalist and multimedia producer who has been primarily based out of Lahore, Pakistan and Johannesburg, South Africa over the duration of the last four years. His work has been published throughout the media spectrum in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph , The Sun, ABC News, BBC, The National, MSNBC, Nat Geo TV, RTL, SKY NEWS (TV) The Washington Times and Thomson Reuters.

In 2007, armed with a graphic design and communications background, and a natural curiosity of people and the wider world, Matt up sticks from his executive position in the London media world in exchange for a backpack full of camera equipment and an urge to tell interesting stories.

He has recently returned back to the UK from a 17 month stint in South Africa to actively pursue and collaborate on documentary and investigative media projects that inspire, question and engage audiences to the medium of storytelling.

Its a Beautiful world “Outside” | India

Its a Beautiful world “Outside” from Indu Antony

India is home to a lot of homeless people. There exists destitute homes to shelter them. One such destitute home in Bangalore houses primarily psychologically ill people. They do have dreams and wishes. This project attempts to bring their idea of the beautiful world outside the home to them with images. Questions were asked to the destitute women as to what they thought was beautiful and the first thing that they would want to see when they step out. The answers varied in color and shapes and were so subjective to their idea of beautiful realities. The dreams were photographed, printed and handed over to them. I decided to overlay their voice recordings to bring in the distinction of each of their personalities. This work is available as a multimedia presentation. From the blind to the physically handicapped they all believed that they would one day step into that beautiful world “Outside”.

Biography Indu Antony.

Being born a shade darker than my family members and into culturally vibrant reality I followed my parents dream to be a physician and then followed my own to be a visual artist. My exhibitions include ‘First Flights’(Delhi) 2009, ‘Body Politics’ (Bangalore) 2010, ‘Social Mashup’(Hyderabad) 2010, ‘Beauty in the Blur’ (Bangalore) 2011, ‘Louder Whisper’ (London) 2011.
