My work was a response to the difficulty of self identification in a post industrial Wales. It reflected the problem of self value and worth in a new non self sufficient country where every corner and horizon echoed the past yet every TV and computer pointed forward. The youth of my generation were born into the void left over in a post industrial country and patriotic pride was hard to come by. So even though my images were not relevant to the lyrical and musical content of the band, the core inspiration was, e.g. drive to achieve, stepping above and beyond, waking up to your own potential, and doing something with your life were all lostprophets anthem calls. To summarise, my work didn't directly or visually represent the underground hardcore metal scene of the day but it was born out of the same rebellion against complacency and apathy that was inbred being brought up in a very grey poor town." - Richard James Oliver  photo Bakers_zps3256a15b.jpg

Garry Winogrand

John Szarkowski called him the central photographer of his generation. Winogrand was known for his portrayal of American life in the early 1960s. Many of his photographs depict the social issues of his time and in the role of media in shaping attitudes. Winogrand's photographs of the Bronx Zoo and the Coney Island Aquarium made up his first book The Animals (1969), a collection of pictures that observes the connections between humans and animals. His book Public Relations (1977) shows press conferences, protesters beaten by cops, and museum parties. In Stock Photographs (1980), Winogrand published his views of the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo. At the time of his death there was discovered about 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rolls of developed but not proofed exposures, and contact sheets made from about 3,000 rolls. The Garry Winogrand Archive at the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) comprises over 20,000 fine and work prints, 20,000 contact sheets, 100,000 negatives and 30,500 35mm colour slides as well as a small group of Polaroid prints and several amateur motion picture films.  photo womanandglobe_zps6e806905.jpg  photo Winograndgir_zpsa4fe7247.jpg  photo stoptheworld_zps80fb2524.jpg

Henrik Aarrestad Uldalen

Henrik explores the dark sides of life, nihilism, existentialism, longing and loneliness, juxtaposed with fragile beauty. The atmosphere in his subject matter is often presented in a dream or limbo-like state, with elements of surrealism. His focus on atmospheres rather than narratives and realism leaves his painting open for many interpretations.  photo tumblr_n28e0s32KR1r3y74po5_r1_500_zpsc6f3d990.jpg  photo tumblr_n28e0s32KR1r3y74po1_500_zpsc7b2301d.jpg

Javier Pérez

Sculpture, photography, drawing, video and performance are used independently as well as together to create installations where interaction and exploration are essential. With his work, Javier Pérez reveals his inquiries and reflections on mankind, using a language full of intense metaphor and imbued with a strong symbolism. His works contain an intrinsic dialectic, showing how weak can be the boundary between concepts seemingly opposite such as the natural and the cultural, the inside and the outside or life and death.  photo works_998_Z_3-712x475_zps9396857a.jpg  photo works_998_Z_2-712x475_zps0542e6d3.jpg

Focusing on select elements drawn from images of Old Master paintings that he finds online, Ochoa creates new works that infuse the beauty of historical art with a subtle postmodern flare.  photo tumblr_mwq5dbUNj61rfi2p4o1_1280_zpse6496098.jpg
