New Feature: Marco Margarucci

Marco Margarucci is a amateur enthusiast photographer from Italy. Through his work "Is there anybody out there?", Margarucci impressively approaches the feeling of absence in a metaphorical way. This feeling occurs if one tries to blind out the events, which surround us. Margarucci asks us to close our eyes and to be quiet in order to hear and feel the sound of absence.

New website area: Features

We are growing! Today we start with our new area "Features" at the Public Life website.
From time to time we will present selected photographers and their work. We open our doors for established as well as upcoming talents who are not members of Public Life hoping this will lead to an increasing quality and variety on our site.

The first photographer featured in our new area is Christian Reiser (known from Sonic Blog interview about street photography). His documentary "ALEX" reflects the life at Alexanderplatz in Berlin.

Feel free to contact us if you have any photography project which you think is worth being presented at Public Life. Please note: Do not send your work as email attachment. All we need is a link to your website where we can have a look at the project in advance.
