"New York City, NY | March 30, 2015

50th Street Walkscape

More work can be found on my Instagram account dedicated to these images @conceptual_ben In a nutshell this project is best described with the following statement.
We live in a time of radical documentation: Cameras are within easy reach and CCTVs record our every move. Our landscape and street corners are painstakingly documented. Time and space are mere elements to be observed, recorded and stored away.
My response has been to deconstruct and compress all these elements into a kaleidoscope of overlapping imagery. Walkscapes presents both sides of our visual tendencies: the obsessive documentation of the quotidian and our growing need to retain a modicum of anonymity.
The images are made from 30-100 merged pictures taken as I walk down a city block. All are made “in-phone” at the moment of capture.

"We’ve selected our image of the week. A 5 year-old patient presents with this lesion, which began as a blister and evolved into the above growth over the course of 5 days. Other members of the Figure 1 community have suggested subcutaneous horn, verruca vulgaris, and pyogenic granuloma. Which do you think is the most likely?" By figure1 on Instagram

"Today marks the first anniversary of the outbreak of #Ebola in #Guinea, the first country affected in the #epidemic. Over the past year, more than 1,300 #MSF international staff and 4,000 local staff have been deployed in #WestAfrica, where they cared for nearly 5,000 confirmed Ebola #patients. “The Ebola outbreak has often been described as a perfect storm: a cross-border epidemic in countries with weak public health systems that had never seen Ebola before,” says Christopher Stokes, MSF general director. “Yet this is too convenient an explanation. For the Ebola outbreak to spiral this far out of control required many institutions to fail. And they did, with tragic and avoidable consequences.” A report released today, ‘Pushed to the limits and beyond’, describes MSF’s early warnings one year ago about cases of Ebola spreading in Guinea, the initial denial by governments of the affected countries, and the unprecedented steps that MSF was forced to take in the face of global inaction as the outbreak engulfed neighbouring states.

"#tomorrowneedsher
750 #women are affected by obstetric #fistula in #Burundi each year. These are injuries of the birth canal and most often the result of prolonged, obstructed labour. They cause incontinence, which often leads to social #stigma. #MSF has opened a specific centre for the treatment of these women. We also aim to raise awareness of the condition within the country through medical staff training and a helpline. Of the estimated 30,000 to 130,000 women who develop a new fistula every year, only a fraction of them have access to surgery. #IWD #IWD2015 ©Matteo Bianchi Fasani, 2014” By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
