Artur was the first one of the men I met a few years ago. What always impressed me was his body which represents to me a nice mix between fragility and strength. Fragility because of all the scars and strength because of the muscular spine and shoulders. I found it interesting to show that by doing a kind of Odalisque pose which creates a tension between intimacy and fragility light and darkness.

In my work I explore relationships and intimacy between people. The closeness between them or what sets them apart and the necessity of physical proximity to others. I mainly focus on the intimacy within the family with a special interest in sibling relationships which partly comes from the fact that I grew up without siblings - my half brother was born when I was twenty years old - and as a child I always wondered what it would be like to have a brother or sister. Now as an adult I find…

There were so many influences in this project and thats what really drove me to create the types of images I did. Folklore storytelling Appalachian dialect anthropologic issues the way the landscape can transform culture poetry music all of these things were central to how I went about creating the work. Each time I would explore another part it was like creating a new chapter. The editing became tough because getting them to all talk to each other was a challenge.  The Prevailing Winds of…

Being from suburban Overland Park Ive been really interested in the expansion of the city. The neighborhood where my parents live was a cow pasture less than fifteen years ago just before I moved there. Im interested in how time affects suburban neighborhoods and the disposability of shopping centers. From being a toddler shopping with my mom to hanging out at the mall as a teenager the mall has been a nostalgic place for me. While I didnt have fond memories in this mall I could almost…

After coming back to China I have become an office worker. Most of the time I stay in the office and can only take photos on my way to or from work. During this time I noticed there were all kinds of people doing different kinds of work in this big city everyone seemed to have own experience and story. So I tried to capture moments which can reflect their true status in work.  People At Work by Teddy Ye (2|4)  #photography #documentary

The work wasnt born out of an interest in a story about fracking explicitly. In November 2014 the New York Times published a series of articles about the oil and gas industry in North Dakota. Regarding Fort Berthold the articles centered on the not insignificant problem of tribal government corruption. However the series loosely touched on the literal and metaphorical scars being inflicted by the industry on the people and landscape. I became curious about who those people were what those…

By the time I decided to make the book I had been covering the Arab Spring for three years from my base in Cairo. Working as a photojournalist I had to adapt to the fast-paced nature of the events and the ever shorter news cycles. This hectic way of working did not not allow for much introspection and Discordia originated from within this vaccum. During my five-year engagement with the region it became impossible not to question the simple narratives of good vs evil especially after seeing…
