Today, we’re taking you on a journey. First stop, America with the photographer Stefano Galli. Then, to Melody Garreau’s intimate universe surrounding family. These two artists submitted their work and it is with great honor we are presenting you with their photography.
Grand Turismo is “a satirical journey through south-west America, where the tourist – the observer – becomes the observed.” With these images taken by the Italian photographer, Stefano Galli, we notice a difference between photographing and observing. While documenting the interactions between mankind and nature, he is interested in the tools allowing to “commercialise and domesticate the desert, a world that belongs to everyone”.

If she has been focusing on documentary and portrait photography, Melody has also carried out intimate projects around family. L’Innocence ternie “tarnished innocence – ed”, is one of two of her more personal works. More than a series, it is a hymn of praise for her sister, Chloé. “Photographs of a time of uncertainty“, this work is also the result of a delicate crossover between childhood and adulthood.
