Photographer Uses His Lens to Capture the Incredible Coincidences That Surround Us Daily

Denis Cherim is a professional photographer that captures the world in coincidence. He started pursuing photography in high school and hasn’t failed to do an amazing job since then. Earthwonders reached out to him to ask him more about his work.

” A photographer gave me advice that you need to try everything in order to find your place. I did follow his words and worked on very different projects, but where I feel the freest is when I am alone with my camera wandering around. As I never have been good at writing or drawing, I  realized that photography was the perfect tool for me to tell a story about my thoughts,  my doubts, my emotions, and how I look at the world we live in,”  shared the artist.

As a result of his career journey working on different projects, the Coincidence project was born. The whole idea behind this project was inspired by the year 2012, the time when the world ‘was supposed to end. “You might remember 2012 was set to be the end of the world, or so we were told. At some level, for me, the world ended as I knew it until then and my perception of everything changed. It was at the end of that year when I started to develop the  Coincidence Project with the idea of capturing in my photographs the unity I was experiencing.

I somehow realized there are some universal rules that apply to all of us. For me, photography is a tool I use to keep discovering and understanding those rules. With every  picture I take, I feel like I’m getting better at playing this universal game and of course, I  want to keep leveling up, even though I’m not sure when or if the game has an ending.”

Denis aims to communicate with people through his photos, to show them the world is much more than what we see at first sight. His goal is to inspire them to rediscover their surroundings because “coincidences” are everywhere.

“As a society, we tend to polarize each fact, we try to understand the meaning of the whole by breaking it into small parts we already know everything about. With the Coincidence  Project I want to show that, as Gestaltism stands, the whole is much more than the sum of its parts,” explains the artist for Earthwonders. 

To capture these moments, one has to be in the right place and the right time, or maybe just be a very good observer like Denis is in order to capture the world in its own habitat. I enjoy wandering around and riding my bicycle, always with my camera in hand and more important with my eyes wide open for anything. And when I say anything, I don´t even  mean something special, but any banal corner or scene worth to be appreciated.”

20 Annoying and Unrealistic Myths That People Unfortunately Still Believe

Since we were kids, we got influenced by our parents/grandparents and the myths they told us. Society has grown through time, but there are some things that haven’t changed since the dawn of time. Things vary from culture to culture, but there are a lot of myths that people disguise as common knowledge, and we just follow them as an unwritten law. However, a lot of these myths are quite annoying. Considering the modern and technological advanced world we live in, we like to have proof of everything in order to believe it.

One reddit user, u/Eichberg, asked a question. What is an annoying myth people still believe? This question sparked some fire on the internet and around 20k people had something to share relating to it. A lot of people shared the myths they know or believe, and we made a list of some of them. Therefore, scroll down below to check it out. And if there’s another myth you know, feel free to use the comment section and share it with us.

The Great Wall of China is the only man-made structure visible from space. First of all, it’s not, and second, other ones are.

If you lift your hands above your head while pregnant you will strangle the baby. I am sure it was started by smart women who didn’t want to do all the housework while pregnant and tired. I still hear it every now and again. – Letmetellyowhat

8.

Black belts have to register their fists as weapons… I can’t believe I was dumb enough to fall for that. What’s more interesting than that is one of the reasons (If not the only reason) that the myth propagated:

Wrestlers and well-known martial artists back in the day we’re constantly being challenged in their personal time at bars and stuff. This got super annoying and they just wanted to have peace without people trying to fight them all the time.

Many of these fighters learned that having a “lethal fists” card that they could display gave them an excuse to turn down fights without an argument for fear of “accidentally killing them”. It also worked as a deterrent.- codered434

That you get warts from frogs. Warts come from the human papilloma virus and come from contact with the virus through broken skin. It is a human specific virus and cannot be spread through different species.

Edit: Apparently people don’t realize that toads are a type of frog. Yes, the myth is about toads but frogs can also be included if they have bumpy skin. Most people can’t tell the difference between toads and frogs anyway.-mtn-cat .

That violence in the world is getting worse and worse. Actually, in relation to the world’s population we live in the most non-violent era in history. The problem is that, while 500 years ago you might have not even heard all the news from within your city, we can now hear all the horrible news from all over the world (and we’re also more people). But still, human interaction and conflict in general is much less violent than it used to be. – mediocre_medstudent1

17.

That if you touch a baby bird, its mother will abandon it because of the smell. Birds actually have a very bad sense of smell.- grmidnight

18.

The five second rule – Appropriate-Wrap-

19.

A lot of commonly believed stuff about the female reproductive system/anatomy, like vaginas getting loose if a woman has a lot of sex, or that having a lot of sex somehow drastically changes the look of a woman’s labia.-iswearimalady
