Phoenix Rising

Bohan Phoenix is an Chinese-American born musician that has been gaining traction in the Chinese Hip-Hop community, as well as the American market.

 

Bohan has a unique approach to his music – he blends Chinese culture with American Hip-Hop and connects the two cultures through his tasteful ear and impressive thought process.

 

Photographer Bryan Tormey and Bohan Phoenix took a trip from NYC to LA while listening, creating, and processing Bohan’s album and drawing connections their land shares with the Chinese way of life.

 

To their amazement – they found themselves immersed in Native Navajo land when arriving out west in America and stunned by their findings. The Native American culture was closely tied to Chinese life by way of Serbia and down through the Americas. They began learning about these close connections and found amazing people and stories along the way.

 

“Phoenix Rising” reflects their journey and findings of Native Navajo culture and their close ties to American-Chinese culture and how close they all are as a people. The story embodies the path Bohan has been creating, drawing parallels between American culture and his native Chinese background, with the hope to prosper despite our failures and rise from catastrophe – stronger, smarter and more powerful than ever.

Red Moon

Photography duo Arturo Bamboo release their third publication ‘RED MOON’. The images are a collection of blurry landscapes, silhouettes and vague abstracts all drenched in a mysterious red and black, photographed over the summer of 2020.

RED MOON acts as a personal album of dream-like memories and feels like something between an utopia and a dystopia. The publication was shot on a reverse-rolled color negative film to emphasise the raw beauty of the subjects – staring at the images shows details which are at first hidden for the eye.

RED
Red is the color of fire and blood, it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.

MOON
The Moon is a gravity rounded astronomical body of planetary-mass, rocky silicate composition and without significant atmosphere, hydrosphere or magnetic field. It is orbiting the planet Earth of the inner Solar System, as Earth’s only natural satellite. Its surface gravity is about a sixth of Earth’s with 0.1654 g.

Rayane in the South West

This is a photographic journey that visits, challenges and exhibits, with a false innocence, the visual standards defining France’s Southwestern culture.

 

Rayane, who had never set foot on the southwestern soil before, was placed in unknown situations, echoing with the precarious social and spatial integration that Maxime, the photographer himself, experienced while growing up.

 

The natural or infrastructural landscapes of the region, the accumulation of artifacts and characters capturing local folklores, opens up a dreamlike journey. Rayane’s thin masculinity, mirroring that of the photographer, serves as a contradictory vessel pacing through the different scenes where the raw forces of the land unravel.
