“To Water”

Dating back to 1685, the Appleby Horse Fair stands as Europe’s largest assembly of Traveller communities.

More than a mere gathering, it serves both as a communal celebration and a commercial hub for those who participate each year.

Hooves and Heritage: The Appleby Horse Fair

TO WATER captures the young inheritors of this age-old tradition, participating in rites of passage that guide them into adulthood. They not only continue a family legacy stretching back centuries but also acquire a distinct milestone often absent in other European communities.

The experience has allowed for a profound connection with a community that is both tight-knit and welcoming.

Eyeshot Open Call 2023: A Global Stage for Emerging and Established Photographers

The road to this moment has been a compelling journey of dedication and effort. Our tight-knit, passionate team of four has poured over 3,000 hours into realizing Eyeshot Open Call 2023, laboring tirelessly seven days a week. This year’s theme, “The Human Being,” has offered us a lens to explore the complexity and diversity of human experiences. From the dynamic pulse of cityscapes to the serene moments in rural life; from unguarded moments to intricate human narratives, the competition has received an astonishing 15,000 entries from more than 100 countries. The resulting body of work has been nothing short of a testament to the depth of creativity and passion that exists in the world of photography.

Guiding us through the meticulous selection process was a panel of highly-regarded jurors, a constellation of experts and luminaries in the field: Trent Parke, F. Dilek Yurdakul, Mark Abramson, Isadora Kosofsky, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Kitra Cahana, Richard Koci Hernandez, Narelle Autio, Emin Özmen, and our very own Marco Savarese, the visionary behind Eyeshot.
