Vivian Maier : “Shadows” (Photography Series)

Driven by her sequestered, private motivations, Vivian Maier captured our cities, suburbs and rural towns. A nanny for many years, herself childless, Maier revealed the beauties and complexities of domesticity. Her photographs demonstrate an intimate exploration of family life, as well as seemingly allegorical treatments of “home”

René Groebli : ‘Rail Magic’ Series (Photography)

Groebli wanted to photograph, that which is not visible: movement, dynamics and speed. 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.

Bruno Mercier : ‘Fences’ Series (Photography)

In all of my photographic work, there is a certain prevailing theme which has something to do with light, movement, and atmosphere. I do love playing with rhythms, light, and lines. I often place landscape in the foreground, inside light, and compose space from the running lines.

“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

Ben Ali Ong : Photography Series

Throughout my work I have been primarily interested in the suggestive possibilities between the images, and the open narrative I can create by juxtaposing the interior and exterior world beside each other. Portraits next to landscape, for example

Pavel Odvody : ‘Still Lives & Compositions’ (Photography)

This is a truly phenomenal, extremely unusual collection of novel picture themes that have barely anything to do with the uncountable daily offerings of photographed pictures in the media, taken in public places or at art museums. So Pavel Odvody’s picture world may appear strange to us at first sight… we are unable to associate a visual experience with it, with only a few capable of sharing his perspective.

Krystina Stimakovits : Photography Series

A quote from Gary Winogrand has lodged itself indelibly in my mind: “There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described”. It is this seemingly contradictory combination of mystery and fact that keeps me searching from the corners of my eye.

“That tragic, poor, transitional element that is found all over Latin America is encapsulated in those images… The act of binding, of shipping and storing, bespeaks a defenseless class that exists in each of those countries, where there are people who have never owned property and whose only option for conserving what little they have is to bind and enclose it before moving on elsewhere.” – fernell franco

Isa Leshko : ‘Thrills & Chills’ Photography Series

Amusement park rides terrify me, which is why I began photographing them. I am fascinated by what compels people to surrender themselves to these mechanical beasts. The rides seem to challenge the very limitations of being human. We can’t fly; yet these vertigo-inducing machines allow us to soar through the open air. The experience combines elation with fear; thrills with chills.

roB_meL – Photography Series (Architectural)

Personally, I think that contemporary architecture has given rise to a new vision of dialogues in urbanism, a sort of “RE – interpretation” of its artistic rhythm of progress – whether it be deconstructionist, brutalist, fantastic or expressionist or clearly visionary or even flowing and introverted.

Sylvain Lagarde : ‘The dancer upstairs is in my head’ Series

Black and white photography is for me a monochrome expression which is able to go to the spirit of everything because it eliminates the “superficiality” of colors. It doesn’t mean that color does not have its place. Color imposes another vision. But black and white is the way i use to reach essence,

“The mass media bombard us with images of blood and tears, “he states.” It’s high time we showed interest in beauty and aesthetics, not just in wars and catastrophes. I still believe photography can touch people emotionally. I believe a photograph can be a testimony and a document of its time, and that it can inspire us to talk to each other and make a better world…”

Brancolina : ‘Jewish Museum in Berlin’ (Photography)

Nothing is unimportant. There is no place without history, where you can just do what you want. Every place speaks in a unique way. It needs to communicate a certain way and to appeal to people. Architecture is an art of communication – not with words, but with proportions and with an aura. Every building must tell a story. – Daniel Libeskind

Ronan Guillou : ‘Colour Photography’ ( Series 1 )

Catching places, cities, glances: Ronan Guillou translates his pleasure and desire for keeping traces of them during his walks. Cities, and the people who animate them, are the basis of his humanistic approach. Aside from his commercial campaigns, Guillou’s personal work records moments of ordinary life, where men and women are photographed during their daily routines in urban landscapes.

Ronan Guillou : Colour Photography ( Series 2 )

If his photographs suggest a poetic vision of the ordinary and call upon the imagination of each and every one of us, they also question us on the temporality [material matter] of places, reveal their nearly organic power as well as their fragility, and examine man’s relationship with the constructed universe.
