David Benjamin Sherry

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket David Benjamin Sherry is a photographer who is not concerned with mimesis; his images may begin in the real world, but abruptly end there. Through technical darkroom processes, he transmutes his subject matter from common to chromatic. The work discloses an alternate view, or presents an ethereal version of reality, one that is fantastic, and borders on delirious. His manipulation of actuality is not so much and abrogate of tradition, it is a pleasure seeking vehicle, and a calculated presentation of a radical imagination. Benjamin’s stimulating colors and seductive compositions convey a sense of zenith – the capture of an ecstatic moment, an orgasmic instant – caught under the influence.

George Holroyd

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket George Holroyd was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. When he was a child, George's family relocated often, transporting him to a variety of cities and towns throughout the eastern half of the United States. From an early age, he developed a sense of being a visitor to these new places, rather than a resident. That feeling of transience stayed with him and he has continued to travel extensively throughout his adult life, including to Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. He currently lives and works in Germany with his wife, Sarah. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Guillaume Mégevand

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Super inspiring series called Blood and Firecrackers by lifestyle and documentary photographer Guillaume Mégevand, who is currently based in Bangkok, Thailand. He writes: 'This series of photos was taken during the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket, Thailand. Over nine days local residents of Chinese ancestry strictly observe a vegetarian diet for the purpose of spiritual cleansing and merit-making. Sacred rituals are performed at various Chinese shrines and temples. The festival involves various processions, temple offerings and culminates with walking on hot coals, climbing knife-blade ladders, self-piercing the skin and so on. Their special 9-day diet seems to allow the participants of the festival to be inhabited by the gods since they apparently feel no physical pain. This seems difficult to believe, but they really appear to be possessed and also to be beyond being hurt or feeling pain despite what they go through. The most amazing moment for me was the last evening of the festival when thousands of citizens came out of their homes to throw firecrackers on the participants of the final procession. During these few hours, Phuket was more like a war zone rather than the quiet tourist town we all know. Luckily for everyone involved, this war zone is one of joy and faith and the culmination of nine incredible days.' Photobucket Photobucket

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket " I’m interested in what we define as beauty, when we choose to create it ourselves. Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make? Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless? When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity? Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?" -Phillip Toledano Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
