Born to Die

Who supports it, deserves to be seen) (! It's not for the weak characters)

(Nepal, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, India)

People kill the animals for different kinds of reasons.. to eat them, gamble with them or they has religious reasons.
Many people has no clue what is behind their "steak" or "fried chicken" for example. The reality is often out of what you think you really eat, especially how the animals are threated before your "steak" is made of them..

Who where what

Rap is our religion (USA)

DETROIT, BRONX, BROOKLYN, BALTIMORE, CHICAGO

Rap as a Religion, as a way of breathing and expression.
Rap Culture in USA nowdays. Extended version of the photo series from 2 months.

I came to USA to search and explore the real rap culture nowdays. I didn't look for necessarly famous rappers neither for the "posers with the golden chains" who knows how to move with their hands but has nothing to say. Which is a main difference between being MC (Master of Ceremonies) with the skill of knowing WHAT and HOW to say that which requires decent knowledge and talent. Rapper is just someone who knows how to make the rhymes and play with the words only but doesn't give an notice / information.  "It's not our hobby, it's our whole world..it's religion..like you are eating - we are rapping" they said.

Worst borstal in Czech Republic (Kraliky)

Borstal for the most problematic children in
Czech Republic that is closed nowdays.

Borstal in Kraliky in Czech Republic is known as
a borstal for „most problematic youths“ in Czech
Republic. There were only 3 boys (from age 12 to
16) when i’ve visited this borstal and for each
of them there was a different reason for stay:
1st boy had agressive moods that were changing
often. 2nd boy did „only“ runaway from the
previous borstal and the 3rd boy have been
violent and into stealing things from the old
people.
Nowdays they play ball games, smoking
cigarettes, work for the borstal for free and
dream.
Borstal is also known for a teacher that was
brutally attacked by one of the boys and had a
screwdriver stabbed into his neck. This is their
everyday life.

„Satan with us“

First czech-slovakian Temple of Satan in Czech Republic.

On the edge of Prague is a house where are gatherings of the followers of Satan. They are practising satanistic and hoo-doo rituals time to time and then go back home to their families with their cars.

I’ve met them several times and they allowed me to photograph some of their rituals (Dark Harlequin, Atlach-Nacha and friday the 13th).

Before Night Falls AKA "Fruit man in a day, Charming woman in a night"

Before Night Falls (CUBA)

HAVANA – SANCTI SPIRITUS

Before Night Falls – story of cuban transformers
Boy who sells the fruits in Havana in a daytime and turns
to a charming lady and a queen of the stage at night.
Homeless Malu who is cleaning the streets of
Sancti Spiritus in a day and performing as an beautiful italian / spanish singer and dancer in the night.

The Huffington Post:

„When photographer David Tesinsky first heard about Malu, a transgender woman who has achieved somewhat of a celebrity status in her native Cuba, he instantly wanted to meet her. He told The Huffington Post that when he finally made it to Cuba in January, he was immediately struck by Malu’s determination to live authentically, in spite of the political and social challenges the Cuban LGBTQ community continues to face.

A performer at a Sancti Spíritus theater, Malu is one of three subjects that Tesinsky captured for his “Before Night Falls” series. The others, Natasha and Alina, identify as gay men. Still, both challenge gender stereotypes in their own right, making a second living as drag performers in Havana nightclubs.

“I’m inspired by contrast,” Tesinsky told The Huffington Post. “That somebody could just be selling fruits and vegetables during the day for a living, and then can turn into a queen of the evening on stage at night,” he said. He was struck by what he describes as a lack of a distinctive “community” in the traditional sense as far as queer Cubans are concerned. “They keep it very low profile,” he said.
