What does happiness mean to you when there are more than seven billion definitions; one for each person in the world? What about opposites?

Thousands for billions of people and all conclude into one word that we call Life.

Documentation of Time

With photography, we capture the essence of freedom with authenticity, by preserving the moment in times. We can traverse back in time and meet a World War I veteran or go on a spiritual journey to a serene mosque. A corridor of passion leads us to the Far East, Beijing then to Niseko, Japan, or to the land of a Thousand Islands. Despite the variety of locations, there is a common theme in photography, capturing a moment in time.

“Documentation of Time” is the forth major issue of our most popular photography magazine Light & Composition. In this issue there are 7 very important articles that help you understand the essence of photography.
