Electric Tears and all their Portent
: Photo story by J. A. Mortram
Isolation and the stresses of living in a rough apartment block have a great impact on Tilney1 who endures daily the effects of Schzoid – Obsessive behaviour. He strives to make friends, to connect and have relationships. Once you're ostracised from the maintstream of society it's increasingly difficult to relate to those around you or to find a way back in. Writing, painting, sketching all help to combat the fight of the day to day and it's a war that's been raging all of his adult life, but not a war that's been lost. “I'm just stuck in my mind... not out of It..”
A Tale of Two Cities- Photo Story by Ross Domoney
Brasov is considered to be one of Romania's most important cities. A place of utmost historical importance since the times of the medieval days. It is situated at the crossroads of the country's trade routes, which has always given it significant economic influence.
Since Romania's violent revolution of 1989 it has continually grown as a cultural and economic centre. This growth makes Brasov today a modern cosmopolitan city in a diverse location, with beautiful architecture, modern shopping centers and intensive social as well as cultural activity. Central Brasov is a perfect example of how the European Union would like tourists to see Romania. However, not far from this merry colorful picture, there is another one: Grey and poverty ridden. A few kilometers away from Brasov town centre, an old man indicates the way to a Roma village. In Zizin, there is no trace of modernity or welfare.

The Karen National Liberation Army are the armed wing of the Karen National Union. They have been fighting for the freedom of Karen State and the ethnic Karen people inside Burma for 60 years in what is Asia's longest running armed conflict. Numbering around 4000 their enemy is the ruling Burmese military known as the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) and militias allied to the regime. Since Burma gained independence from the British in 1948, ethnic minorities such as the Karen have been brutally oppressed sending thousands of refugees across the border into Thailand. Villages are routinely razed to the ground, people are reportedly used for forced labor and tortured and killed. The KNLA soldiers know the land mine littered terrain well and are experts in guerrilla warfare. 'We have no fear' states one of the KNLA soldiers.
The Altiplano - By Dan Giannopoulos
The South American altiplano (High Plain) is the second highest mountain plateau in the world behind Tibetan plateau. It extends from the northwest of Argentina to the south east of Peru covering most of western Bolivia.
