Augenblick, Profile : Mona Simon

"Memories" is a beautiful project done by German Mona Simon in which she explores her own cultural heritage of being Transylvanian-Saxon a minority which has lived in Romania for centuries. Her project is a personal journey focussing on people and details of Life.Here some notes from her:
Transylvania has traditionally been a multicultural place where Romanians, Saxons, Hungarians and Gypsies lived next to each other. Many Saxons have left Transylvania after the Communism collapsed, almost all of them immigrated to Germany. This project deals with exile and remembrance and shows a world in the way I saw it as a child.

Augenblick , Profile : Muge

Muge is becoming one of the most interesting Chinese photographers to watch , his photos are already being shown in many venues. I know his works since some time and I am happy to share his work. Muge is a passage of what Chinese photography need to explore and fill up a gap of years of disclosure to what western photography produced after Diane Arbus or Robert Frank. If you happen to be in Italy you can visit his work which will be shown at the Sifest Photo Festival in Savignano from the 10th of september while his photos are visible at Arles Photo Festival.
