"Three days in Venice" by Marina Sersale
"In January 2016, I took three days off work and went to Venice, where I hadn’t been in decades. I wanted to go in winter because, for me, Venice needs to be empty - as empty as possible - and it was perfect. Hugely inspiring and completely magical; I spent three days of absolute bliss."

"It was five years ago that I learned about the Hipstamatic App and I was immediately captivated by it’s beautiful combinations of lenses and filters. As a child I learned the art, science and magic of photography from my dad when he converted a small bathroom into a darkroom, and because of this, I feel especially drawn to the black and white combinations, which remind me of photographs from a long gone era.
I have been addicted to taking photos on a daily basis, with Hipstamatic ever since, as I find that the magic of creating images in this way feeds my soul, whether I am in the beauty of nature or the often hectic environment of the city. This portfolio reflects my love of nature, people, photography and Hipstamatic."
"On The Black Sea Coast" by Ilknur Can
"I spent most of my time this summer on the beach, where locals and people who live in and around Istanbul come together to have a good time. I hope you enjoy my short story."
"The Transsaharan" by Frédéric Scheiber
"Road movie along the Route Nationale 1 in the South of Algeria. It is the country’s North/South backbone. The Route Nationale 1, aka the Transsaharan, stretches for 2335 kilometers and connects Algeria to the Nigerian border.
This was an adventure along 1330 kilometers of road and Sahara landscapes, between the city of Ghardaia in the Mzab region and Tamanrasset, the gateway to black Africa, which has been closed to Western tourists since 2010."

"What a joy to walk around in summer with your smartphone and take pictures; just taking your time enjoying the holiday atmosphere. This series was taken along the French Côte d’Azur and in Corsica, over the summer months. The light is particularly challenging at this time of year, so I prefer shooting in the morning and late afternoon. I always use BlacKeys SuperGrain with the John S lens and I never seem to tire of it."
"Cannes-Aarhus" by Niels Brunelli
"Here's a selection of pictures I took over the past four months... since I've been on Instagram, in fact. All the photos were taken with my trusty iPhone 5s, my constant companion. I usually take random pictures during my free time, or when I'm working (during the Cannes Film Festival, for instance). I don't have a favorite theme, as such, but I'm aware of my pictures being very urban, mineral and rather minimalist. I like shadow play, contrast, lines and, if at all possible, a few people in the composition (not too many though). Many of my pictures are taken in and around Cannes, where I live and work. I'm half French, half Danish, so I regularly travel to Aarhus, my home town and Denmark's second largest city. I brought home a few interesting pictures that resonate well with the ones I took at the Côte d'Azur."
