“Trap” is a style of hip hop originating from the Southern United States, and in particular, attributed to the city of Atlanta, Georgia. The term “trap house” also refers to the location drug deals are made in. And of course, “trap” also means a “snare”. These definitions and more collide when documentary photographer Vincent Desailly sets out to capture the world of trap in Atlanta. The city is home to the headquarters of Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines, it has numerous soup kitchens and homeless shelters and has the most dangerous neighborhoods in the US according to crime statistics.
For ‘The Trap’, publisher Nadine Barth teamed up with Vincent Desailly to put together an exciting selection of photos that bear witness to the lifestyle and atmosphere from which this musical genre has emerged. His haunting portraiture puts forward dealers, musicians and residents, showing guns, crime scenes and everyday occurances elegantly interwoven in narrative.
In these photographs, the depiction of everyday life begins to speak in a language that is noneother than that of rap, with the pictures...

“At FARC, I developed powers I had never dreamed of because we were fighting for a mutual cause. I gave it my all as a guerillera – and became a woman fighter, not lastly because I experienced first hand how powerless women are in Colombia’s male-dominated society,” Milena describes her life as a guerillera. In intimate portraits, photographer Ann-Christine Woehrl and author Cornelia von Schelling document six female FARC fighters – Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia. What makes this project special is that it depicts the bitter civil war and the long peace process in Colombia from the perspective of female ex-rebels.

Brexit and Trump’s Wall—it seems that borders around the world are currently being closed rather than permeable. It’s a good thing that more and more font families are mediating between languages and cultures at the same time, so you can use one font for multiple font systems. The Typodarium 2020 therefore shows the latest font trends, the “weirdest” display types, the latest bread fonts and other proofs of the vital type community as well as a bi-script font family every Sunday. A writing system for diplomacy and tolerance. A writing system that brings down the walls in concrete heads and tears down political or military boundaries.
There are differences between Arabic and Hebrew, Japanese and Latin, but visually there are also many similarities. Communication overcomes borders. Communication needs writing. Type designers react to the wishes of their customers. And these customers from business and society think more globally and further than some headlines might suggest. The Sundays of the Typodarium 2020 define the silver lining on the time horizon: We are one world!
