Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket " While watching a nature program on primates I was struck by their facial similarity to our own. Humans are clearly different to animals, but the great apes inhabit that grey area between man and animal. I thought it would be interesting to try to photograph gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans using the aesthetic of the passport photograph- its ubiquitous style inferring the idea of identity. I decided against photographing in zoos or using ‘animal actors’ but traveled to Cameroon, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia to meet orphans of the bush meat trade and live pet trade." - James Mollison Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Shootout by Fabian Oefner

Photobucket Photobucket " These images were created with the aid of an air gun. The cans were placed in a small studio assembly and then shot from the right side. To capture the very moment, where the projectile hits the can, a microphone was connected to several custom-made high-speed flashes. As soon as the gun triggered, the micro caught that sound and sent an electronic impulse to the flashes to trigger them. The same principles were used to take the images of the bursting light bulbs." - Fabian Oefner Photobucket

The Underwater Project – Mark Tipple

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket " On the 17th of December 2009 I was photographing small waves at Coogee Beach, Sydney when I dove under a larger wave and thought to turn the camera onto a swimmer next to me, and see what he went through while diving under the wave. This split second produced a photo entitled 'Escape', and changed the direction of my photography with an ongoing series called The Underwater Project. In my other photography work the personal connection between myself and the people in front of the camera is paramount, and while I work towards building these long term relationships it's this connection that has been lost through a candid approach to shooting underwater." - Mark Tipple Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Traveler’s Cup by Joo Yeon Woo

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket "As a culturally displaced artist, I have been drawn to the theme of cultural displacement and identity, and to social psychological and cross-cultural studies that are heavily influenced by immigrant experiences and by the interaction between people and space. My most recent projects have adopted a documentary approach and artistic archives to present my experiences of dislocation and rootlessness in our contemporary nomadic culture." - Joo Yeon Woo Photobucket Photobucket

Cara Barer

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Cara Barer photographs outdated, abandoned and obsolete books - but only after transforming them into sculptural objects of beauty. Coiled and crumpled, they segue into a considered commentary on the changing role of libraries, society’s relationship with how it accesses and values knowledge and, in a technologically advanced world, her work questions the future of the book itself.
