” While volunteering for the Audubon’s BirdSafe program I collected many birds that met untimely deaths due to collisions with built structures. Displayed are some of the birds I found, fully intact with everything that they were, aside from a conscience and a pulse. The birds are photographed in ways representative of the moment of impact or the aftermath of impact.” – Miranda Brandon

” Every picture has a different story to tell. It is through these stories that people get inspired. Art means everything to me, it is my source of happiness and sadness at the same time. In my work I am not fond of rules but I am searching for the unique, different and for a clear understanding of myself and my world, this allows me to explore fragments of life as an abstract form, while changing things and also to interact with people I would otherwise not be able to engage with. I’m especially drawn to the combination of digital photography and computer generated images. My philosophy on art is about taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary. I’m inspired by the contrast of light and dark, while I use the changing light to arouse the mood of my dreams and experiences. I feel that an honest picture of someone or something can tell a short history of the world. It has the power to reach back and remind us who we are and how we behave in the face of loneliness as we relate to it in our everyday lives.” – Paul Pond

Born in Tokio in 1973, studies art in USA before to come back in Japan. Began to show art work in Tokio, in 2007. Amano’s photographs are drawn from his own private fantasies. Fantasies that are animistic, animalistic and atavistic in nature, but all-too-human in execution, evoking primal fears and desires. In Amano’s world, the human body is worshipped and admired for its awesome beauty but also deformed and fused with nature – with wood, blood, bones, scales and feathers – transforming it into an erotic grotesque. But these frightful dioramas are also cut through with the blackest humour. Link here.

Martin’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour. Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published. More here.

” I started late in photography. I hadn’t studied graphic design: I started in an ad agency as a copywriter. I didn’t really have a visual culture, but rubbed shoulders with art directors, photographers, and understood that my main interest was basically visual, even though I had no technical skills whatsoever. As a copywriter, I was denied access to images; I started taking pictures to compensate for the frustration. And in adworld, where things always end up with a logo in the corner, photography allowed me to create more freely. I was probably around 30 when I got started, and soon realized I was really keen, almost obsessively in fact.” – Rémi Noël

Aisha Zeijpveld (1983) obtained her degree at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Living in Amsterdam she works as freelancer for a variety of commercial magazines, while continuously pursuing her personal work. Zeijpveld’s focus on people their nakedness and vulnerability yet simultaneously their potency and pride characterizes her photography. She aims for the absurd, allowing her photographs to be posited on the interface of reality and dream-world, while always maintaining their functionality and clarity.

‘In NEW WAVES, Takashi Homma presents a series of photographs of the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii spanning thirteen years. The photographs of waves depict the coastline continuously un-changed by climate or seasonal time. By reproducing and revisiting the same landscape repeatedly, Homma captures focused reflections of the interaction between pictorial and mental space, the waves and our selves.’
