On the outskirts of a rural town in an impoverished area of Palm Beach County, Florida, lies the small community of Miracle Village - home to over 100 sex offenders. Florida legislation requires offenders to live a minimum of 1,000 ft. from any school, bus stop or place where children congregate, yet many municipalities extend this law with local ordinances that increase the distance to 2,500 ft. In reality, this becomes extremely difficult to abide by, and many offenders struggle to find housing and re-establish their lives in society. The village, founded by a Christian ministry, seeks to help offenders that have no place to go.

I went to Grand Ghetto, a cluster of precarious shelters in the countryside near Foggia, Italy, with the intention of documenting the harsh living conditions of the thousands of African immigrants that work in the fields picking tomatoes.

I unveil Camargue as someone slowly recedes from the landscape. The salt industry is altered at Salin de Giraud and in this finally tamed scenery, nature prevails reclaiming its rights. A transitional world is revealed, exactly where people have made a remote place, constructing facilities and taming a wild piece of land.

The project is set in an Italian prison with the aim to open a window into the prison world, a reality too often forgotten, made up of loss of freedom and suffering. The distracted look can stop and people can look inside. One can imagine and for a moment can share that world seemingly so far.

No, day to day life does not equate to the end of desire, no, habits do not equate to the ends of feelings, no, the ambiant gloom does not equate to the end of love, of tender gestures, of this minimalist choreography that sheds a different light on two souls who become close, who touch each other, who whisper to each other, who sublime each other amid the surrounding noise, haste, anger, and greyness.

"3 days in Havana" are analog panoramic collages from three days I spent in Havana this summer.  I just walked around and saw things and shot, and met people and shot some more.

Michael Magers presents a selection of images from my time diving with the Ama, Japan's aging female free-divers.  A dwindling group of women in the 60s and 70s who still employ ancient techniques and equipment to hunt for valuable abalone and sea urchin in the waters off the Japanese coast.
