Syrian Refugees in Greece © Enri Canaj

Home to some of the world’s loveliest beaches and luxury hotels, Rio de Janeiro is also a city of the starkest inequalities. In addition to the four million people living in favelas, there are thousands of women and children who make their home and their living in the streets. © Tiana Markova Gold.

"As photographers it is often hard to view our work in a objective way and that's why getting an opinion from a professional is critical for our growth. I appreciated your honesty and your words of encouragement, they are an injection of enthusiasm that I hope to bring in my future work" - Mariella Candela

For the last 16 years my father has been fighting prostate cancer. With his speech and memory beginning to fade, and his age showing, it’s these times where though he appears weak, I see him at his strongest. http://lensculture.co/1UWNrPG

This work portrays individuals who have been hit by that feeling of losing their inner anchor. How can parents keep their children well-grounded when they themselves have no strong foundation—how can they pass something on that simply does not exist in them? © Catherine Rocke, Austria
