Geamana is an abandoned village in Romania. The place makes for some intriguing pictures but it has a very sad story. In 1978 the communist regime forced the inhabitants of Geamana to move out so that an artificial lake could take its place that served as a kind of catch-basin for the nearby Ro»ôia Poieni’s copper mine contaminated sludge to flow into.

Bringing the Outdoors Inside

carolyn-lefley-realm-1

Carolyn Lefley‘s Realm photo series.
Artist statement:

I make photographs that depict a world that floats between reality and fantasy, between believable spaces and sites of make believe. I am interested in the relationship between literary fiction and fantasy stories and the inherent make-believe qualities of a photograph. Photographs are windows to another world and as such have a magical quality to them. In my new work Realm I have created digitally altered photographs, where the familiar place of the home becomes a portal into mythical realm. This fascinated authors such as C S Lewis and George MacDonald. The realm of Narnia is entered through a wardrobe and the layers of fur coats inside which become trees.

Tiébélé, a village in Burkina Faso, West Africa, is known for its amazing traditional Gourounsi architecture. Houses are made of a sun-dried mix of clay, soil, straw and cow droppings, mixed by foot to create strong pottery-like structures. The walls are painted with colored mud and chalk and tell an expressive story of the ancient tribe’s culture. Decorating is always a community project done by the women and it’s an old practice that dates from the sixteenth century.
