Raised on a secret volcano island by cheetahs, Carli is adept at communicating with wildlife. This allows her to capture impressive images of animals in any kind of scenario you or your client can think of. She took her first darkroom class in a lowly closet in her high school, and she and her best friend spent their freshman year printing overdramatic photos of each other in graveyards. Carli moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2001 where to pay for her education she took on a series of odd jobs that included work as a tattoo shop clerk, a bouncer, a photographer for the house of representatives, and eventually animal care and photography at The Oregon Zoo. In 2011 her series Shake became a worldwide success, garnering her millions of website hits and putting her firmly on the map as a top animal photographer. She currently lives in Portland OR with her husband Tim and her pets Norbert and Yushi as well as a rotating cast of foster dogs. Website.

CORPICRUDI are Samantha Stella and Sergio Frazzingaro (Genoa, Italy). Since late 2003 they are working on hybrid projects between contemporary art, music and style focusing on aesthetic harmony. In the conviction that art must dispense harmony and that aesthetics is its fundamental element, the research developed by corpicrudi is based on the Oscar Wilde’s theme of the pretence, and the necessity of finding in it the only possible approach to the representation of the idea of beauty.

Jan Masny started his photographic practice in the photographic studio of Bogdan Axman. He very quickly became independent and moved to London in 2004. His main focus is in fashion photography as well as portraiture and advertising. His photographs are simple and minimal with the aim of specifically emphasizing their content. He is fascinated by polarities and contrasts of meaning, and his ability to extract often unexpected aspects from his subjects gives a freshness and depth to his work. He has taken portraits of numerous celebrities including Jamelia, Gosia Bela, Simon Webbe, Asher D and Lisa Maffia.

Laura Plageman is an artist and educator who lives and works in Oakland, CA. Her images explore the relationships between the process of image making, photographic truth and distortion, and the representation of landscape.

” I’m a (very) crazy nightscape photographer from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I teach at College, I’m a huge and southernmost fan of the Green Bay Packers, I have two kids, I’m 43 years old and I don’t have plans to update this paragraph.” – Luis Argerich

Madame Peripetie explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high-fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of color and texture. In her work she is focusing mainly on the interaction between body, language and new media. Her inspirations include surrealism, dadaism as well as the new wave era of the 80s, British post punk scene and the avantgarde theater of Robert Wilson.
