This photograph was taken during the Kirkpinar oil wrestling festival in Edirne, Turkey. Kirkpinar is the oldest sporting competition in the world and a fascinating subculture. It is a tradition with a 650 year past. Wrestlers train for this festival for a whole year and their dream is to finally attain the Gold Belt. To the participants it is not just a sport but a way of life: discipline and dedication. In this image, the wrestlers are waiting in the cage area watching the matches taking place on the grass. I have been working on this project, all shot on film, since June 2010. People and their passions are at the essence of my work. By using my camera as a way of capturing their energy and freedom I, in turn, am able to capture my own. – Pari Dukovic.

‘Dance Recital’ is a personal project made over several years of young girls backstage during their dance recital performances. The moments are captured spontaneously, without direction. ‘Ballet’ is a series of images that are a look into a classic ballet class at the Joffrey School of Ballet, and was produced by Image Source. Both series touch on ideas about body image, the concept of beauty, and the social pressures girls face growing up in America. – Carey Kirkella. To see more of Kirkella’s work click here.

Kenneth O’Halloran’s project “Fair Trade” captures the flavor of a group of Gaelic nomads with a tradition of gathering on special occasions to trade horses, ponies and other goods. He says women regard the trading fairs “as occasions worth dressing up for, lending a kind of delicacy to the day, a femininity to counterweigh the spit-in-the-hand dealings of the men folk. There is a vibrancy of colour, red hair, freckles and a range of ensembles.”
O’Halloran is currently based in Dublin. To see more of his work click here.
