French photographer Benoit Courti‘s photography covers a wide spectrum of subjects, but most of his pictures retain a powerful intimacy with their subjects, especially his portraits. He is the consummate fine arts photographer, seeming to be equally comfortable with both black and white and color, but it is probably his black and white work that captures our attention most. It is gritty, dark, intimate and beautiful.

Iranian photographer Hossein Zare presents a powerful series of black and white pictures that symbolize our journey through life. Stripped of unnecessary details, his photographs gives you the bare feeling of undefined destination in life, represented by the traveling man and other metaphors of life, such as a tree or a road. The concise titles of the photos (“In Vain”, “To…”, “Distance”) make them even more eloquent. A gallery definitely worth exploring!
