We were exploring beautiful locations around Los Angeles and found this sweet place in Palos Verdes. This place sucked us in and let us wander around to contemplate for a good couple hours. Even though the place is actually super small, it felt like a truly personal and intimate experience. More at http://DmitryKotov.com
I was invited to attend Milan Fashion week in a February of 2018. It was my first time in Milan, and I was astounded at the amount of beautiful architecture it has around the city. I wanted to capture that but also tie in fashion along with it. As we were shooting, these birds started passing all over the place! It was magical! I give my model credit for standing so still. The shot was taken at the Duomo in Milan, Italy. Photo be me @alexiroseproductions model: @marwaatik
I was fascinated by the dozens of elephants at Amber Fort. But I’m against riding elephants for tourism, so I wanted to take picture that illustrates a suffering elephant. It took me about 50 pictures to get this one. I like it because it is a portrait of the elephant, burdened by the dark shadow of tourism.
The bus from Bangkok to Phetchabun was cheap ($9!!!), long (~6 hours) and sleepless. But boy was it beyond worth it! We arrived shortly before sunrise, taking in its magnificent mosaics with our fingers and toes, napped in its shade and stayed well past sunset. I moved to Thailand having never visited, without speaking the language, without knowing anybody or anything about my new home. What a transformative year it was both personally and as a visual storyteller. This capture reminds me of growth, courage and magic.
Facts: I am waiting for the last tourists to leave Ankor Wat. I see this young guy being absorbed by the sound of his phone. Imagination: I wish I could have overheard the sound coming out of this smart phone. I don´t know the story but I think it was a voice message, saying I miss you, call me back.
We visited the The Nan Hua Temple in Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa during the Chinese New Year. The display was underway and I managed to squeeze myself into the front. There was a lot of competition for space from other photographers. Luckily for me, someone else ventured a little bit further forward.
A mother and young child with happy yet desperate eyes as they receive donations at a local shelter. This photo was taken two days after Mount Agung on Bali erupted forcing the airport to close and thousands of villagers to flee into makeshift shelter centres. Bali, Indonesia 29 November 2017.
Tourists are attracted to Tenganan by its unique Bali Aga culture that still holds the original traditions, ceremonies, rules of ancient Balinese and its unique village layout/ architecture. There are strict rules as to who is allowed to live in here; only those born in the village can stay here and become full members of the community. Also a strict protocol regarding marriages among the kin groups have steered the Tenganan through the genetic perils of the intermarriage.
Perfection is a myth. It is how you as a person interpreted it what makes it perfect for you. Even this Buddha statue at Khao Takiab in Hua Hin, Thailand represents so much for devote Buddhists that missing an eye does not make any difference. Accept that nothing in life is perfect and that imperfections make life more interesting. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
Finally we made it to Tokyo. Of course we had to visit the Meiji shrine. The shrine is under construction, and it was drizzling, so the place wasn’t packed with tourists. I stood facing the gate, and waited for a moment that caught my eye. I hope that I captured a great moment, and conveyed the right mood.
on a sunday morning at 6, i took a walk in koyambedu market in chennai,India. koyambedu market is one of the largest market in the country. suddenly i saw this beautiful sunlight and i took my camera and waited for a perfect moment that is when i clicked a photo of this lady carrying a bag full of flowers.
Me and my mother and sister go to a nursery garden and always find different spiritual statue like ganesha (old photo in my profile), and buda. Photos like this always make me do more in post-production like color grading to find the right color and the right tone to transmit the same feeling i feel when i take this photo.
