Here is a focus on three of the readers’ favourite discoveries, presented last June on Fisheye’s website.
1. Jocelyn Lee
The Appearance of Things is a work that Jocelyn Lee has been perfecting for ten years. A pictural creation reflecting several of her favourite themes. In this project, portraits, landscapes and still lives merge. Her models – often found through ads in newspapers – like her floral compositions evoke, with poetry, the ephemerality of life. Canvas which appear like sceneries in the dark of night.

How to define boundaries when we live at the heart of a digital world? Millenials do not seem to have any. Growing up in synch with the growth of smartphones, social media have become a part of their lives. “Instagram requires them to play a role, to exhibit a strong personality”, Federica Sasso adds. In #Post-adolescence, the photographer meets the millenials, this generation of teenagers glued to their phones. By getting to know them, she went behind the scenes, and discovered a moving and poetic reality. A series to discover during the Night of the Year, in BYOPaper, Les Rencontres d’Arles.
