He studied at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas between 1981 and 1984 and at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid between 1986 and 1987. Orozco gained his reputation in the early 1990s with his exploration of drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. In 1998 Francesco Bonami called him "one of the most influential artists of this decade, and probably the next one too." Within the past fifteen years Orozco has also created work in the medium of painting.  photo unnamed-13_zpsu3unhxdt.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpsph04atkp.jpg  photo unnamed-11_zps3qxzlgov.jpg

Stephen Shanabrook

 photo unnamed-2_zpsgur2z2e3.png  photo unnamed_zpsuhugv87r.png  photo unnamed-8_zpsubeav7gn.jpg Stephen Shanabrook works in a disparity, a space of unexpected associations, altered perception and exsquisite entropy. In all his undertakings, there is the process of evisceration and a search within process for a different aspect of beauty. Abstracted upon the experience of daily reality, his inveterate and mysterious works leave one with an intensely evocative, sometimes disquieting, yet ultimately peaceful sensibility.  photo unnamed-1_zps9ndprwrr.png  photo unnamed-4_zpsgoywd8b3.jpg

They are repositories of treasured moments, of everyday routines and memories, of growing up or growing old, of accidents, of habits, and of fear and trauma. The subjective nature of the home is explored through a variety of body textures that are obscured by pattern, repetition, and traditional ornamentation in household furnishings. This blurs the boundaries between the home and body, making it difficult to determine where the house ends and where the person begins.The conventional items of the home that generally go unnoticed become the focus of our attention and quietly reveal their personal history." - Fiona Roberts  photo unnamed-4_zpsmltdkrop.jpg  photo unnamed-8_zpsmmkvpnrm.jpg

3 Glasses Later by Marcos Alberti

 photo unnamed-10_zps0wd4ggdd.jpg  photo unnamed-8_zpswnsgcviq.jpg Brazilian photographer creates a unique experience among friends. Marcos Alberti decided to put together some of his passions in this project, friends, photography, wine and also a good old talk. There is a saying about wine that I really like and it's something like this “The first glass of wine is all about the food, the second glass is about love and the third glass is about mayhem” I really wanted to see it for myself if that affirmation was in fact true says Marcos about his latest project. 3 Glasses after started as a joke like a game after hours but a serious work with a good humorous vibe ,the first picture was taken right away when our guests have just arrived at the studio in order to capture the stress and the fatigue after a full day after working all day long and from also facing rush hour traffic to get here. Only then fun time and my project could begin. At the end of every glass of wine a snapshot, nothing fancy, a face and a wall, 3 times. People from all walks of life, music, art, fashion, dance, architecture, advertising got together for a couple of nights and by the end of the third glass several smiles emerged and many stories were told.  photo unnamed-4_zpsdzxzoakt.jpg  photo unnamed-9_zpstc9kxg7t.jpg

I create visual narratives that are inspired by the darkness within the real world, using poetic metaphors and uncanny motifs through paintings, installations, books, films and puppetry to help beguile, enchant and illuminate. Ultimately, I seek to inspire and encourage people to question the mistakes of our world and adopt wiser moral judgment, through use of cautionary tales and uncanny punishment." - Layla Holzer  photo unnamed-9_zpsl7umlwa5.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpssaycktx7.jpg

Joseph McGlennon

 photo unnamed-4_zps82pixqb9.jpg  photo unnamed-10_zpsjgyvkclq.jpg  photo unnamed-11_zpswkauciic.jpg 'Joseph McGlennon’s photographic works are majestic recreations of animals in their natural habitats – the first kangaroos to be seen by European eyes, parrots perching on a branch surrounded by exotic blooms, the extinct Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) fresh from killing its prey. McGlennon’s lens brings his subjects out of the realm of exotic specimen or historical curiosity and pushes them, living and breathing, into today. McGlennon takes hundreds of different photographs and spends weeks layering and arranging them to arrive at the final image. The landscape is as important as the animal itself – there are no blurred backgrounds or subdued foregrounds in McGlennon’s montages. The inclusion of every detail creates a hyper-real effect that pulls the viewer into contact with the flora and fauna that the planet stands to lose. McGlennon came to photography following a successful career in advertising. He won the 2015 William and Winifried Bowness Photography Prize for Florilegium #1, his picture of two parrots perched on tropical foliage, inspired by Joseph Banks’ botanical drawings.'
