once were were beginning our journey in south africa, where for more than 20 years, black algae b t q i. communities have been the focus of photographers, and nearly will holly's work. nellum holly's powerful self portraits are politically charged. they're the visual artist, exploration of black identity, that no one knew by ending of them with an addition. when the continental, nobody ended, going to leave. i not selfish i really photographed and they took in there with the professional camera. i am one of them koli just called me professor sam will coordinate the balance. i feel empowered, i feel actually good because people get to see somebody. i am not doing what i do

africa, held its 1st non racial democratic elections in 1994. though well came to south africa document. elections are fest at elections in a lot of us who are so definite. ken's who had elections, who have what's in the couldn't access our own history, our on visual history. how sick is that? that's why them. i wish i had an opportunity to document that fest so deaf that can elections by due to lack of resources with holy uses or camera to show the realities of the l g. b t, u r. community continue to face discrimination and ostracism to this day. many people here see sexuality as non africa pulleys colder. first fo 2 series only half the picture
8:35 am
with not a lot of people have been here. a lot of people have been violated on daily basis because of the agenda expression or because of their sexual orientation . so i come on board as a messenger of god, speaking on these issues as an insider in the entropy, see i community speaking as a black pess in understanding their political existence. so visual activism is about activism basically, but we're using the visuals to speak on what is not and most has spoken about a denellin holly's in a position to take portraits of a wounded and vulnerable community. others could not. the artist describes the people in these pictures, participants seeking recognition rather than subject in 26
8:36 am
holy photograph martin singer at their church there, whose friends to this day. oh, i mean, i could teach these human beings that i work with, that i have photograph of the photographing of a period of time as participants who informs, as in wish without been these know, 4 to 5 business videographer. there's no academic pass, all calls later that they are knowledgeable more than these participants. holly's 1st meter exhibition and jeremy is that the group is bo, and berlin is a collaboration with london state. modern natasha can well are curated the berlin sherman was speaking about questions of sexual violence and sexual rights. these connect to all of our histories, really, so not only thinking about south africa,
8:37 am
but really also looking into how minorities address their desires, often without fear embracing all premises of love. and i think that is what brings me really close to these images. ah, so too long. we've been down and distorted, mostly. and now i said, it is our time. it is our time because we are black. we are smart. we exist and our experiences is what makes many people say and feel and cry because they get it. they get it here
8:38 am
lou. ready ready our next are just brings us back to berlin, a city that is for ever changing. ready ready ready ready alexander stephanie has been documenting the change in faces burning for years. he photographs old shops, snack bars, abandoned buildings, industrial plants, and open spaces. the photos speak of the past as well as of the present, and create visual memories of places before they disappeared, florida. labored in mob eden charm that i love this city's morbid charm. hardened by the mind drawn to these places as if by magic and i can't resist going on and they speak to me. yeah. or put a graphing them is basically my you, i for my oldest yellow my we have capturing them for myself and for posterity fest side remnants of the berlin wall. relics of
8:39 am
another time and spaces where artists lived and worked in divided berlin. and after the men fell, when in shoveling west 1000000000, i grew up in the scruffy west. berlin hunter to me till crawling exciting. all those big, barren spaces were like vast adventure. please grand, for to be a plot. i go baking there with friends and i am, i'm found it's exhilarated under pon, with font as we are offering. one of the city's biggest construction projects is currently underway, new berlin, central station. it's called you ropers city, and will include 3000 departments and offices 416000 people. not so long ago, the area looked like this. a disused el rey grounds at the 60 heck tis in size. when delynn was divided after world war 2, this area was more rude in no man's land between east and west. since the wolf fell, its central location has made it an attractive place to build and admire. schleiden, one there, ma'am, blown away by the sheer quantity. our common reason,
8:40 am
glassy is apprentice and air where i'm standing, it looks like it could be anywhere in the world. my la misunderstood, that's what bothers me. the most tired one does not say, interchange ability. rhoda does. this is one area where i wish they are preserved have at least 10 years ago, a little didn't verify these new buildings along the sri, less and making nostalgic without losing radar was over. there is what was once the curry felt like world famous french graffiti by street artists blue lab law on i photographed this place regularly for over a decade in ya. i'm a bigger man. it was the most hotly contested place in the chrysler district. in the last remaining open space or, or any one could have a barbecue, we are group, then it became berlin's 1st 5 ella. one bill whom to refugees and towns on the thrift. it. ah, so in crow expect is gleiss strike park, which covers some $31.00 hate days. it's
8:41 am
a full morale wide area that stood empty during the time of the world. traces from its former identities still remain among the green. alexander stefan started coming here long before became a popular park. he captured what has since disappeared. for instance, the gulf driving range that closed in 2009. but there's still plenty to do here. manhattan, sherwin, a vague, found a great way to keep the memory of the parks history alive at least 5 or creasing a space for all berliners and relax and enjoy themselves on the shore and parked the fog. merlin still has places where time seems to have stood still. he is experiencing a construction dune more and more alexander stefan feels the need to hurry, so that he can capture the soul of his home city in time before it changes again.
8:42 am
these next 2 artists can't get enough of change and of the possibilities it opens ah, behind each image, there's a personal story. many of the videos and photos by the french, you, elsa potter. you had a banana show the artists themselves. and yet, they are also always some one different. the 2 women appear as different characters and stage portraits. the results are versatile, an unsettling mix of performance and disguise. to invent their characters, stories and spaces elsa and you. hannah, are always observing everything around. ellis, is that cool? how come see the stories we tell are a bit like a magical puzzle made up of aspirations. we have and share images from a films we like observations about found them to inspire us. all people we pass on
8:43 am
the street, woke up those of the starting points, which allow us to play these characters in their med dues, with the best scenarios or the resulting photos resemble film stills. elsa new hannah don't just disguise themselves for their future series. the also scout out and style interiors as well as x 2 years to suit each story and character occasionally. chance also please apart like when a dog happens to come is can use out the rest of them. what we are really interested in all that is the magic of the moon, and it's all, for instance, if we want to shoot in a room, we'll do it at a specific time of day when we know the lighting will be good. so we been to reality rather than the other way around it and we like that because it makes for plenty of surprises. so kids, oh,
8:44 am
elson you hannah use natural light and few high tech tricks in terms of photography, the jews approach is rather minimal, but it's a different story when it comes to their vast treasure trove of wigs, accessories, clothing, and makeup. oh, it's the 2nd a mix is one thing we love to explore. it's our multiple identity, mill neck, household inordinate to illness panel. but we also know our limits and don't take things too far. oscar. it's very important for us because it's the authenticity which brings our characters to life them about an adjective form. it is in altered thinking of these identities resemble us in some ways that are very far away from us and others on general as a dialogue between the characters and us would you know, the sense of intimacy, anton affinity, it was, we like some of the characters a lot only perhaps because they don't resemble us but that,
8:45 am
but rather remind us of people, we love them. all the characters are extensions of ourselves, but in a bad way, so to speak. don't oncology met earlier to move us us whenever possible. the 2 women designed the exhibitions to hear it calls raj. natasha gallery. they decorated one space to look like a 700 hotel. bobby low. sam roselle. we had fan creating an ambience a bit. likewise, anderson, it's something we like to do a lot because it was an extension of how we tell stories and that is and an invitation for the public to understand how we work as artists of how we discover a place to observe things on the details text is in colors that den inspire our stories. it's our own universe. we're presenting you back hopeless. children's bedrooms can also feel like private university. james madison traveled the world photographing where children sleep. ah
8:46 am
child, thank to see in reality orphanage. what would the world look like if it were made by children may be like this. the domain, a full year old kaya from tokyo. a child's room often reveals the biggest streams. samantha from new york is a 3 time karate will champion who trains for hours a day. this is her bedroom. other times a place where a child lay their head for the my to provide insight into their families difficult living situation, and daily fight for survival. ah, for the 15 years british photography, james madison has documented where children sleep i was asked to
8:47 am
come up with a project for a children's charity. they're either of a child in kind of smiling a lot or a child in a disaster situation. so i began to think about my, how could you know, a little bit more about a child, and i thought back to my own childhood, i kind of looked at the kids in the pictures and i kind of thought, i wonder what that bedroom is like. the pool home to 7 year old indira, she and her family live in a single room. the children sleep on the floor. indira has worked as a granite quarry since she was 3 years old for 5 to 6 hours a day with any protective give me james madison. many, many boys and girls who have been robbed of the very things that make childhood special, being free from care and responsibility. ah,
8:48 am
i live in a fayette in rio de janeiro. she's 14 and pregnant for the 3rd time, 8 year old ro see from cambodia leads on a garbage town. it's home to 5000 people. not only were they living in these terrible conditions, but they were also having to pay rent. it's still almost makes my stomach turn because i can remember that one of the things that the family do was that when they're going through the rubbish, they kind of pull out, you know, some of the leftovers. they've made these mattresses out of har tires, which they had found on the rubbish dump. that was a very, very difficult situation. children having their own room is mainly a western custom. in the best case scenario there, a place of refuge and freedom. it's a recent privilege, but one more more germans have been able to afford in the last 50 years. these days
8:49 am
on average, parents spend several 100 years a year on children's furniture. ah, james wallace, alyssa photographed with these children sleep in design of rooms that looked like the child's paradise. he captures themes said a contradictory, absurd, and shocking, and presents them without judgment. he knows that kids can change. for example, jazzy, who is a young girl the i photographed a beauty pageant to house just had hundreds and hundreds of these are crowns from all of the competitions. and i did actually go back and meet her now is not into beauty pageants, but she's really into swimming. and she gets up at kind of 430 or 5 in the morning . her life has kind of gone in different directions since our photograph millison says his photos aim to provide a window into others,
8:50 am
lives and cultures to p curiosity and promote understanding. some also reflect huge conflict in our world. and israeli settlement in the west bank is fetus, where religion is the most important subject in school. his orthodox family strictly follows the torah. just a short distance away, its palestinian do. her brother killed himself and 23 others in a suicide bombing. in retaliation, these railey military destroyed her family home. they've lived in a refugee camp ever since. i also think that children a, quite a good way of looking at issues that are going on in the world is if i was to photograph an adults, you kind of somehow implicitly blame them for the situation around them. whereas the child is kind of so clearly kind of born into that situation is it is, is kind of innocent. so you can kind of,
8:51 am
i've used the project to look at some kind of quite complex issues. burlison's project raises big questions. like how can we make the world a fair, a place for children? he says the short answer is more education. indira still works the granite quarry, but thanks to an aid organization, she can also attend school. she longs to be a dad, so when she grows up, kaya wants to be a cartoonist. and la mean had to be the teacher. no matter where and how these children are growing up. they all have victory. ah! we don't know what fell maker van ben ness tramped off when he was young, but he started taking photos, age, sex, and remains passionate about photography to this day.
8:52 am
taking pictures once required looks at machinery, big cameras, photo booths, labs and the results were all analog. film directive in vendors started telling his great stories with little photos, with polaroids instant prints that had 1st just functioned as quick sketches ah, mature daughter, you'd hunt for locations, amanda, and once you found one, you shopped there. come on. and if you had several, you'd want to be able to compare the lies and shoe others all. and it wasn't really photography of last year. it was no taking long notice. and you could also affix them to the stream playing, pin them on the wall at night. so the pillow pitting the camera fascinated vendors so much that he gave us a role in his film. ah
8:53 am
. the photos in the movie act like words in a story. in a window into the world field, art is frederick images were often blurry and a bit out of focus lethal side because the exposure time was really long on her thinking that was great when it was sunny, who traveled when it was darker, you had to keep incredibly still to pull as no one from a polaroid on a tripod. louise's sure what fuzziness was almost the stylistic devices by emptying plus the photo always came with its own frame. that was nice, was, was a frame, was part of the attraction. so she was granted and all at the object, her person being photographed, he was still there. you compare what you had in your hand, or you just photograph,
8:54 am
quantify something you can normally do and taking pictures of them being in the hand as kamala. my love of all of you unleash the image is a faded, fuzzy blurred, weathered and have color casts, but that's part of their appeal. their analog fair morality has become gray and special, and the depth and breadth vendors also sought to convey in his films the world beyond the horizon. it's always evident here as well. mm. noon. these days vendors always has his smartphone camera on him. but it's not the same person digger, it's such a shame really. and this is the train stuck in the country where i took my wife
8:55 am
yesterday with hawkins, that i'm la loca. what happened was such a nice nighttime atmosphere. i la view, someone had a room that was completely lit up and purple that i photographed that in one data to dance. that was a moment where i thought it belated by what a shame as having that would have made a good photo. now it's only on my food who does for to go visit. if this is new amended, his polaroids records of the past, former lives and a quieter, more peaceful time. or may be totally ever existed for that one moment. in the eyes of the photographer, ah, what is good for my social is good to boost that when you're conscious in the moment of taking it, that it's a good photo. i mean, you just knew it a month month, but muncie, the more you photographed them. do you remember the lesson you to lou man was about
