" I make the clothes the morning of the shoot, so the meat doesn't rot. In Bahia, I froze it beforehand, so it wouldn't get smelly, because it's really hot. It's quite domestic, reallyâ€”I have to buy meat, clean up, sew. For this series, I got the fabrics in local markets, and the meat, too. I try to accentuate each woman's skin tone and expression with the clothes; I take Polaroids of them when I first meet them, then I work from those. " - Pinar Yolacan

technically ambitious photography explores the alchemical medium of photography. Transforming his subjects” fashion, portraiture, beauty, and still life photography” Burbridge subverts the expected. His inventive editorial work appears in Another Magazine, Self-Service, Italian Vogue, i-D and V. His still life and beauty photography, which can be seen in campaigns for MAC, Chaumet, Givenchy, Hermes and Louis Vuitton Eyewear, is elegantly experimental and meticulous. Burbridge's portraits of the leading cultural figures of art, literature, and entertainment also carry his distinct photographic style.

' Born in Rome in 1974, from a well-known dynasty of artists, Matteo BasilÃ©
has been exposed to the art world all his life. Since his first appearance on the art scene (1996), BasilÃ© has been working by interacting with his cultural inheritance and aspiring to a new system of productive meaning. Among the first European to explore and develop what is today regarded as digital art, Matteo BasilÃ© conveys photography with avant-garde technology as a linguistic formula to research the processes of self and social discovery. The artist constantly rejects a static vocabulary and confronts himself in relation to memory and tradition. ' (via Biasa Artspace
