We are excited to join Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Challenge once more this week with as the featured letter. I know that we are ‘cheating’ a little bit since these words technically begin with E, but what to do? X is Xcruciatingly difficult. Thus, our theme is Xpectant, Xtract, and Xistence. 

These photos are taken by our featured photographer, Joshua Formentera and are currently on exhibit in Berlin until the 15th of June 2012.

  3. I like your bridge with “Xistence” to existentialism – I’ve read a lot about Sartre and Heidegger, Jaspers and Albert Camus. I even established a photogroup with such a topic at – you have featured a very interesting photographer!
