Between crisis and loneliness

Messina, Between crisis and Loneliness by Cristina Insinga

During the Christmas time, she decided to go to the most common and popular places in Messina, to realize a photographic project about "Christmas" habits in Messina in times of crisis: what would the “Messinese” bring on to their tables during family dinners, what presents would they give to their children, and what games and pastimes would they create to set aside everyday problems?

Her research unfortunately failed immediately. The scenario she found was that of every day, where the crisis was undisputed lord and master, and there was no room left for anything else, even at Christmas.

New York, Manhattan

Adi Tudose - NY, Manhattan

In March 2011 I had the chance to spend some time in Manhattan. Coming for the first time from Romania to the United States was a special experience for me as I have never visited any country outside Europe. Everything seemed the same, but very unfamiliar somehow. Many little differences, some of them almost invisible to the eye made me feel as a foreigner, a stranger like nowhere else before. 

I was so curious what kind of people I would meet on the streets of Manhattan, how I would relate to them. At first I was a bit overwhelmed by the noise of that place, the almost aggressive geometry of the streets. But as I got used to looking beyond these disruptive elements, I managed to see the people and finally I felt at home with my camera.

The other victims of parental abduction and Japanese child custody laws

Left Behind by Japan - Clive V. France

Japan is the only G8 member not to have signed the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, a multilateral treaty “that provides an expeditious method to return a child internationally abducted from one member nation to another.” 

Japan’s failure to do so has placed it at the centre of a row over custody of children from failed international marriages and highlighted the issue of parental abduction. Japan has been described as a “black hole” for children abducted from overseas by their Japanese parents.
