The World is Flat with Martin Lanciano

To see more of Martin’s cleaned-up chaos follow @_o___________o_ on Instagram.

For graphic designer Martin Lanciano (@_o___________o_), photography is a way to create order from chaos. “I would love to live in a cleaner, less crowded place than Buenos Aires,” he says. “I’m not drawn to all these different architecture styles, colors and textures mixed together.” In his minimalist collage series #offlabeluse_, Martin flattens bulky pieces of medicine packaging and glues them to a thin sheet of paper. “With my pictures, I’m also slicing up the 3D volume of the real world and folding it into flat 2D squares.”

Martin’s photos focus on capturing clean bits of shape and color that he finds in his everyday life. “I’m not interested in the meaning of things or trying to convey a message or idea. As a graphic designer you have to do that,” he explains. “On Instagram, I feel free to just play. It’s like taking the serious part out of the graphic design and just keeping the fun! I try to focus on pure aesthetics such as balance, tension, contrast, empty space and color palette.”

Local Lens: Reflections of Singapore’s Changing Cityscape

To see more of Singapore’s diverse architecture through the lens of a local, follow @_yafiqyusman_ on Instagram.

“The places I can go are limited,” says Instagrammer Yafiq Yusman (@_yafiqyusman_) of his tiny island-nation home of Singapore, “but the photo possibilities are limitless.”

Yafiq, who studied architecture in college, enjoys capturing Singapore’s rapidly evolving urban landscape through puddles left by the city’s tropical climate. “Singapore is a modernized country, but there are still places where you can see the olden days,” says Yafiq. “The alleys in Little India, China Town and Boat Quay are a few of my favorite spots and great for puddle shots.”

For more modern photo opportunities, Yafiq favors Raffles Place, a square surrounded by the city’s tallest buildings. And for those seeking respite from Singapore’s fast-paced metropolis, he suggests tracking down a hidden reserve called Punggol Beach. “The best time to visit is during the sunset. It’s beautiful.”
