LensCulture Review: Legally Invisible


LensCulture Review (Oliver Weber / Polaris)

This series of photographs by Oliver Weber are a little window into the "Roma Settlements around the Balkan Region" and make us feel their nature and reality. (...) The theme of the Roma in the Balkans is very interesting, and a story to be told. Oliver's sense of light and color are dynamic, his empathy with people palpable, he should continue his observations so that he may share them in a really outstanding portfolio and perhaps a book - LensCulture.

Viernes Santo


Semana Santa - San Cristóbal de La Laguna, 2016 (Oliver Weber / Polaris).

Ceremony of the funeral of god's son Jesus. With the arrival of spring comes Easter week. It has centuries of history behind it and is one of Spain's most authentic and emotive celebrations. The streets of the vast majority of Spain's cities, towns and villages become the stage for religious fervour and devotion, combining grief and meditation in memory of Christ's death. The Holy Week in the historical and University City in Tenerife, La Laguna, is especially famous in the Canary Islands. The most important days are Easter Thursday and Friday (Viernes Santo). The Semana Santa already belongs to the cultural world heritage by UNESCO. (Oliver Weber / Polaris).
