480 Un hombro sobre el cual descansar nuestras preocupaciones, que nos acompañen en el pesar, en las dificultades.
Un abrazo a tiempo cura almas partidas, el silencio y la compañía valen más que mil días de fiestas.
Conservar esas amistades nos permiten fortalecernos en la solidaridad y en el amor.

“After school, I had no idea what I was doing with my life. It was out of control; I felt lost. I had so many ideas or paths I could have taken but none of them seemed clear. There was one moment which changed all that. I was involved in a serious car crash. I nearly died. When you go through an event like that it really makes you question everything. I started to think more about what I wanted for myself. I was so caught up in trivial matters. It gave me perspective. It made me realise that I had to do something fulfilling with my future. It sounds bizarre, but it was what I needed to focus my life. I’ve been told that the accident was the turning point in my life. Something clicked inside my head, and I changed. I feel incredibly fortunate to be alive.”
Magnum photographer Abbas has died in Paris on Wednesday April 25, 2018, at the age of 74. In a career that spanned six decades, he covered wars and revolutions in Biafra, Bangladesh, Northern Ireland, Vietnam, the Middle East, Chile, Cuba, and South Africa during apartheid. His interest in religion was sparked by the Iranian revolution (1987 to 1994), and he focused on the rise of Islamism throughout the world. Up until his death Abbas continued to explore religion, with a focus on documenting Judaism around the world. According to Abbas, there are two approaches to photography: “one is writing with light, and the other is drawing with light. The school of Henri Cartier-Bresson, they draw with light, they sketch with light. The single picture is paramount for them. For me, that was never the point. My pictures are always part of a series, an essay. Each picture should be good enough to stand on its own but its value is a part of something larger.” (Excerpts from Magnum Photos Written by Laura Havlin · Apr 25, 2018).

"I took this photo while working on a photo-story on a former psychiatric institution Santa Maria della Pietà in Rome. Opened in 1914, over the past century this institution has been closely connected with the development of modern clinical psychiatry in Italy and Europe. Officially closed in 1999, Following the historic reform of the psychiatric system known as "Legge Basaglia", Santa Maria della Pietà is nonetheless still active today, housing rehabilitation and health-care facilities. On the other hand, many more of the former medical pavilions lie neglected over a 100-hectare park, like containers of the old patients' memories”.
No me gusta madrugar pero amo los amaneceres. Son el fiel reflejo de los comienzos. Te permiten volver a creer, son fríos pero con encanto. Representan el atrevimiento, tus ganas locas de hacerte ver. Representan la capacidad de reinventarse, que en definitiva es la única forma que tenemos de volver a nacer.

Today's YOUTHHOOD inspiration comes from American photographer John Edmonds (@johncedmonds) with his powerful and provocative series Hoods.
For his elegantly simple concept, faceless individuals in hoodies are photographed from behind. His subjects are framed tightly the camera lens, focussing on them intensely, watching and surveying but not seeing. For Americans in the political climate of 2016, this image can’t help but recall Treyvon Martin - an unarmed, young, hoodie-wearing black American shot and killed for being ‘suspicious-looking’. And for young, black Americans, that idea of being both scrutinised and ignored is only too familiar.
The hoodie has come to represent more than just self-expression. It is now a racially coded garment representing an unjust racial bias by some, and in
backlash a symbol of solidarity by others, inspiring acts such as the Million Hoodie March in New York. Edmonds images tell a potent message about the way black youths (that in itself an assumption cast onto his images) are portrayed in the media, and the racial profiling they must endure. It’s a timely and subversive comment on youth identity.
