#11 Travel Photo Of The Year: A usual day in Zanzibar By Yanitsa Genova
As Roland Barthes says, photography kills time. Exactly these moments of preserving the image, a cross-section of what is happening in everyday life, I tried to convey in my photographs. To freeze that feeling of constantly flowing happiness and carefreeness. Black and white remain the purest possible way to influence, to find the absence in the presence. The black and white vision helps the selection of the photos not to be in dissonance with the general visual and semantic logic.
