Made in Korea by Filippo Venturi
South Korea is one of the most developed countries in the world. But behind this success there is a society oppressed by conformism and the obsession of perfection

Night shift by Michele Cimini
This work comes from the need to tell the long and solitary nights spent at the factory. Since the company has been declared in “state of crisis”, my job is to control the plant. Until operations won't be resumed

The mill's gold by Cristina Corsi and Antonio Lorenzini
There is a place on the slopes of Pratomagno where the stream Ciuffenna’s water has been digging its way for centuries through the turbines of an old mill

I'm not here by Matteo Signanini
A collective narrative narrated through the eyes of the protagonists. A glimpse into the intimacy of their lives, a photographic journey that runs along concrete walls, pushing on

South, oil and magic by Emanuele Gaudioso
Viggiano, Basilicata. Europe's biggest onshore oil platform extends across 1.400 squared kilometres, just in front of the Black Virgin Sanctuary; black as the “gold” flowing underneath the Val d'Agri

The Trustful Youth by Michele Vino
More than half of Vietnam's population is younger than 25 and 70 percent were born after the Vietnam War ended in 1975. Today’s younger generation has no direct memories of the war that shaped the lives of their parents and grandparents, and they are coming of age in more affluent times

Broken Screen by Gaia Squarci
“When you’re losing sight, the world starts to appear fragmented, like through a broken screen. Then you stop understanding where light comes from”, Dale Layne

Awareness - the photography of Alessandro Grassani
On the occasion of the first of photo meetings organized by Sony Italy at Villa Reale in Monza, Witness Journal met Alessandro Grassani

MANIFESTO
Witness Journal comes from the experience of a journalists and photographers’ team, joined together in order to create a different and innovative project in the information system. Far from the standard business model, Witness proposes a different approach to information, according to many different points of view. It's a free, online monthly photo-magazine developed by an editorial staff and thanks to the contribute of professionist journalist and photographers, as well as citizen journalists.
Distributed for free via the Internet, Witness Journal tells small and big Italian and international stories through images by professional photographers and amateurs. Firmly open to the contributions of anyone, Witness offers to the authors a journalistic limelight where they have the chance to express their skills and to promote their works. At the same time we offer to our readers a different kind of information in compliance with many different aspects. First, we consider images, and not words, all-important. The stories told by Witness Journal are reported exclusively on the base of facts, that is pictures. The articles – written by the photographers in cooperation with the editorial staff – add extra information to the context Witness’ editorial line tends to give voice to events and local stories and above all to what we can hardly find on main stream information. Thanks to the net we get in touch with a network of co-workers on the whole Italian territory. A network of professionists and amateurs who have the chance to speak out, thanks to the digital world and to Web 2.0 phenomenon. Witness Journal wants you to listen to their voices.
