His series “Rail Magic”, is a trailblazing photo essay on the French steam railways, developed in 1949 it’s an interaction of smoke, smell, landscape and romance, a symbol of strength and work of timeless poetry.

Linda Butler : Photography Series

“When I originally took up photography it was to photograph nature in the style of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Even though most of my work has moved in a different direction, I continue to love to immerse myself in the landscape, trying to push the envelope to go beyond the beautiful.” Linda Butler

Brett Weston : ‘Abstraction Portfolios’ (Photography)

The two portfolios titled Abstractions, first issued in 1980, offered Brett Weston a general concept within which to collect and publish forty of the best pictures from his entire career. At age sixty-nine he may have thought of these portfolios as a kind of retrospective, even though he was by no means finished taking pictures and always said that the photograph he most cared about was the next one.

Idris Khan : “Bernd and Hilla Becher” Works (Photography)

Since 1959 Bernd and Hilla Becher have been photographing industrial structures that exemplify modernist engineering, such as gas reservoirs and water towers. These works are often presented in groups of similar design; their repeated images make these everyday buildings seem strangely imposing and alien. Idris Khan’s Every… Bernd And Hilla Becher… series appropriates the Bechers’ imagery and compiles their collections into single super-images.

Eric Mencher : Photography Series

I believe in and love photography. It alone can forever freeze a mystery, a memory, a moment. I photograph everything, from the most (seemingly) mundane daily details to the significant stories of our day.

Fernand Hick : Photography Series

“I am a very personal and original photographer, whose working-method aims to transfer in my images the feelings I experienced while shooting. I am above all an atmosphere photographer. My atmosphere captures results from a subtle mixture between fuzzy zones and perfectly sharp ones.” – Fernand Hick

Shomei Tomatsu : Photography Series

Tomatsu’s radical approach – his freeform, expressionist style, odd camera angles, strange cropping and framing – has been reappraised and he is now seen, ironically enough, as one of the pioneers of the Provoke era. He is famously reclusive and has never ventured outside Japan.
