Worldwide Photography #4: Matmâta

Worldwide Photography is a series of posts where every week we're going to show a city or location around the globe bringing the coolest photography samples of it. The photographs authors are all credited right above their pictures. Today feature: Matmâta. While i was thinking about the next place to be featured for the next WWP I really wanted a non-typical place. I took a suggestion from my dad, who went to Tunisia last year, he said he visited a really different place called Matmâta. It's a really small town, with beautiful landscapes and even was used for some scenes for Star Wars movies, hope you see the beauty of this location and share you opinion about it. *helmen lady_stardust9 vieira.benjamim Coussier Roeland Suys Gebe18 Andrew_dub_5 Khoretta Paul Fenis...on holiday in Madeira :) Pascal Abaziou www.robertorey.es hermaj *helmen Gerard Bijvank felinebird V4len lakenbottles lady_stardust9 G14LL0 jjay69 tonny8596 pontiuspartygirl *helmen eugenijusr Andrew_dub_5 For next week we're going to feature the city of Oslo in Norway, so if you want to send your submissions for the next Worldwide Photography, please tweet the tag #wwp and the link of the photo(s) on twitter.

Photography Inspiration: Rastafari

I'm a huge fan of the rastafari culture and reggae music, since it's summer here in Brazil, I though would be cool to share this kind of inspiration with you guys. So we made a huge collection of rastafari photography inspired, hope you like it. madalena.leles Spirit photos Kristian Pletten www.ruprechtstudios.com Andres Ghiorzo Kwadwo Kwarte Javier Lovera facufotografia almost transparent blue Coussier The Rastafari movement or Rasta is a monotheistic, new religious movement that arose in a Christian culture in Jamaica in the 1930s.[1][2] Its adherents worship Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, former Emperor of Ethiopia (1930–1936 and 1941–1974), as God incarnate, the Second Advent, and are known as Rastafarians, or Rastas. The movement is sometimes referred to as "Rastafarianism", but this term is considered derogatory and offensive by some Rastas, who dislike being labelled as an "ism".[3] (Wikipedia) Iago Rodrigues Lucas Farfaglia elementaudiovisual Mr Groove kidmissile duvsem MarcGrandmaison.com jaxting ? victorgil84 © Madrid lorenzodom The Rastafari movement encompasses themes such as the spiritual use of cannabis[4][5] and the rejection of western society (called Babylon, in reference more to the metaphorical Babylon of Christianity than to the historical Mesopotamian city-state). It proclaims Africa (also "Zion") as the original birthplace of mankind, and embraces various Afrocentric social and political aspirations[4][6], such as the sociopolitical views and teachings of Jamaican publicist, organizer, and black nationalist Marcus Garvey (also often regarded as a prophet) (Wikipedia).
