The most popular article we published this January was Erik Simander’s Hjordis, I Miss You, a heart-breaking series of photos of his widowed grandfather: the images follow the old man as he struggles to get used to living without his wife.

The second most seen series was Ebb Tide by Tyler Haughey: a Jersey Shore native, Tyler took fascinating photographs of the motel resorts of The Wildwoods, New Jersey, during the off season. Next is Al di Qua delle Montagne [tr. On This Side of the Mountains], Carmen Colombo’s look at suburban life in northern Italy. Also popular this month were Paolo Ventura’s Short Stories—sequences of staged, theatrical images (usually three to five) that Paolo uses to create magical short stories about “disappearance, love, sadness, melancholy and joy”. Finally, Wilma Hurskainen makes the group of January’s five most seen series with her romantic staged portraits of girls and horses, ‘The Woman Who Married a Horse’.

Take a second look at these series, and subscribe to our weekly newsletter to make sure you never miss one bit of our future content!
