The Trap: catching the red tuna by Mattia Barbata
Every year, since ages, since the beginning, the red tuna migrates from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea, looking for warmer waters where to restart the cycle of life

Odavle samo u harem by Sulejman Bijedić
In 2016, less than twenty years later from our departure, I came back in Počitelj, moved by the desire to find lost bondage with my native land and find out what had been left of the village and its inhabitants

Anitya by Monica Bonacina
Impermanence in the Zanskar’s female Buddhist monasteries

Turkana’s resilience by Maurizio Di Pietro
Turkana have long lived in balance between land and water, but now both are in danger

Stuck in Serbia by Vincenzo Montefinese
According to UNHCR, the United nations high commissioner for refugees, between 2016 and 2017 were 7,000 migrants who were waiting to end their long journey along the Balkan route, the last obstacle before reaching their destination. Maybe Germany or Scandinavia

A story of love and loss by Daniele Mele
A story of love and loss is the intense and intimate story of the last days in the life of a beloved one. A close approach, depicted through a blurry black and white, almost transcendent to the concept of reportage photography

Dainaly's World by Liliana Ranalletta
The Circus, that world where everything appears fake, becomes the universe of the possible, unconditional theater where Dainaly manages to decline the imperceptible nuances of his imaginative universe, so impenetrable and sometimes indecipherable and secret, yet made of disarming fragility and sweetness

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.
