Dream Narratives, the Future of Cities, the Stories of Man

Dream Narratives, the Future of Cities, the Stories of Man
We have five excellent photo-narratives to present this week: a dreamy, cinematic sequence from the roads of France, two starkly different views on the future of cities, as well as two intensely personal projects, one showing the hell of addiction, the other presenting an emotional homecoming in Southeast Asia.

We hope you dig in to all these stories and discover all that LensCulture has to offer.

—Jim Casper and the whole team at LensCulture
On the Road, Dream Narrative
There is no narrator for this dark, mysterious visual story — Is it a cinematic sequence of a child's memories, a dream, a diary, a nightmare? By Julien Magre
Future Cities
It is estimated that by 2050, the world's squatter population will hit 3 billion—this series explores what life looks like in these informal, unplanned settlements that are growing across the world.
By Noah Addis
Origins: A Return to the Far North
Beyond the extreme cold, the endless nights, the blinding snow—the Alaskan landscape holds profound subtleties and wondrous, beautiful visions waiting to be (re)discovered. By Acacia Johnson
The Mekong: Stories of Man
A powerful visual narrative that takes us along 4,200 km of Southeast Asia's longest river—and shows us the countless stories that can be found on its banks. By Lâm Duc Hiên

Heroin: the Limbo that precedes Hell
An intensely personal short video of black-and-white still images, with poetic narration by the photographer. By Alberto García-Alix
We would love to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who submitted their work to the LensCulture Visual Storytelling 2014 competition. We saw an unprecedented surge of entries in the final days, which means we have an exciting and inspiring number of visual narratives to dig into.  We will be announcing the results by late November.

While the competition is now closed to submissions, be sure to check out our Facebook albums, which feature SEVEN volumes of highlighted entrants.
