Deep inside the Arctic Circle on a lyrical journey through the largest fjord system in the word.

Sidetracked Magazine

Icebergs the size of villages float by with serene majesty. Scoresbysund lies in ahead, untouched. The 350km-deep fjord system is only accessible by boat three months a year. Which is now. For the Inuit, everything has an Anirniq, a soul. 

In Sidetracked Volume Seven, René Koster and Marco Barneveld sail deep into Scoresbysund, East Greenland to explore the unique fjord systems. Shipping now.  www.sidetracked.com

 Exhibition Defactory

The Italian Cultural Association DeFactory is proud to present its new annual photo exhibition: ImageNation 2016: Eyes on the World.

From March 12th to April 3rd, 2016, the City Gallery “G.B. Bosio”, in Desenzano del Garda, hosts a collective show of more than 60 photographers: this year, DeFactory has chosen to open its doors to photographers from all over the world, collecting a wide range of stories, images and people coming from different backgrounds and cultural areas who share the common passion for photography.

The link that establishes a dialogue among them and the viewer is the tale and, above all, the desire to share and make it understandable through that immediacy that only photography is able to transmit.
