My upcoming series of images are from a recent trip to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Here, children from the Soufriere Comprehensive School had just finished for the day as I was driving back to the house, and they promised me they’d give me their best smiles as it was the last frame left on the roll! 🙏🏼 @lilreissie2637

Hi everyone, This is @katia_repina, Russian documentary photographer and videographer based in NYC, US. I work on documentary projects which focus on intimate stories and spotlight the issues of gender, identity and sexuality. I am pleased to take over the feed this week.
In 2012 I read a book and this phrase got very deep into my thoughts: "Most men have, at some point, feared not being masculine enough, especially in the bedroom. Pornography speaks to that fear." - Getting Off: Pornography and the End of Masculinity, Robert Jensen.
After that I went to a very famous porn festival in Barcelona and was shocked. That’s how my four-year project “Into The Porn” journey started.
María Llopis, famous person in the Spanish PostPorn scene, reflects in an article: "Pornography is a reflection of our sexed society. All our miseries are reflected in it. We live in a world where violence against women is assumed as part of our day to day." and concludes: "... I do not worry that mainstream pornography is sexist. It seems logical. We have the porn we deserve."
After spending more than four years inside the Spanish pornography industry (mainstream, alternative porn and postporn), I tend to agree.
Despite the fact that these kids are currently growing up in an environment in which men driving around with armed weapons (ready to shoot at any given moment) is the norm...I love that at the end of the day, kids will always remain kids. #Soccer#futbol#KurdishTurkishConflict

Rowing with one of your legs out to your fishing spot, standing on the end edge of your long boat and then throwing out your fishing net and pulling it back up on repeat all morning is the daily life for some people here. I can’t imagine having to do this day in and day out....not only is this super challenging, but you all know I would end up in the water on the first try!
