Heidi Leverty : ‘Outbox’ Series (Photography)

This body of work is about recycled and discarded items that no longer perform the functions for which they were intended. What appears to be without value is in fact a source of inspiration, a bounty of objects d’art. Removed from their first use, these materials of paper, metal, plastic and fabric secrete an unexpected visual richness, the product of chance.

Alexey Titarenko : “St. Petersburg” Series (Photography)

“Titarenko presents the city as mystical and eerie, a reflection of the many tragedies that occurred there throughout the 20th century. His key inspiration is not contemporary photographic practice, but rather music, and particularly that of Shostakovich. His black-and-white pictures allow for details that situate the scene in time and place. Many photographers have employed “blur”, but Titarenko applies it to street photography, transforming straight reportage into haunting poetry.” Barbara Pollack

Christopher Anderson : “Capitolio” Series (Photography)

Capitolio is documentary photographer Christopher Anderson’s cinematic journey through the upheavals of contemporary Caracas, Venezuela, in the tradition of such earlier projects as William Klein’s New York (1954–55) and Robert Frank’s The Americans (1958). It presents a poetic and politicized vision, by one of todays finest documentary photographers, of a city and a country that is ripping apart at the seams under the stress of popular unrest, and whose turmoil remains largely unreported by Western media.

Reiko Imoto : ‘Visions of The Other Side’ Series (Photography)

These images represent surreal moments that I see in everyday life. On the street, or wherever I go, the hidden side of ordinary things attract my eye. To me, photography is a tool to expand ways of seeing the mysteries that I used to see easily when I was a little child.
