I was born in Donetsk, Eastern Ukraine. I grew up in Northern Italy but I currently live in London and study Graphic Design at University of Greenwich. My love for visual arts started during my early teenage years thanks to Manga and Anime. Being a skateboarder brought me closer to street culture and street photography, which then evolved in other photographic styles like architecture photography and portraits. Photography is the best way I have to share emotions with the outside world, and even if I usually focus on black and white shots, when I don't, I want my photos to look like a dance of colours.

Luc Girouard Luc Girouard lives and works in Montreal, Quebec.A seasoned graphic designer, it is only recently that he discovered his newest passion -- photography. Luc Girouard's professional photographic début came in the form of Dead Airport in 2013, a series of compelling photos that made him instantly and widely known on the web. From Above followed in 2016, a series of works that embraced reversed perspectives, as Luc discovered the drone, which sent his artistic imagination skyward. In 2015 and 2019, Téléquébec's popular arts show, La Fabrique Culturelle, dedicated two segments to a pair of collaborative projects -- Walking Mary and Dead Airport. In 2018, Luc published some of his photographic works in two books -- Montréal bleu, which presented Montreal and its landmarks under a gripping, nocturnal light, and Mon Fuji, which offered a visual illusion evoked by the mountains of abandoned mines in Thetford Mines. Since then, he has also participated in several exhibitions throughout Quebec, and continues to present his photo projects online through Behance, Facebook and Instagram.

A N Quittner In September of 2019 I met a professional photographer who told me that the fundamental principle of photography in one simple phrase is: Fill the frame. When he said these words something extraordinary occurred within me and I began taking 500-700 pictures a day. I have become a dedicated street photographer ever since. I had never understood photography as an art form until this time. I consider myself a poet first and a photographer second and I sometimes like to mix the two together.

Mitch Rouse Mitch is a transportation entrepreneur and photographer based out of Cody, Wyoming. Mitch began exploring the realm of aerial photography, with high tech drones. Unsatisfied with the limitations of drones, he began photographing primarily straight down from fixed wing aircraft. Mitch has now found the sweet spot between the two by developing a system that incorporates a Bell 429 helicopter, with a Shot Over gimbal mounted to the nose, which holds a 150 MP Phase One Industrial camera. This state-of-the-art system provides outstanding image quality and output superior to either of the previous iterations.

Chanda Hopkins I am a multi talented, multi disciplinary artist. I love creating beauty. It's something that is such a part of me I can't help it. Hair and makeup were my first loves, with photography coming in a close second. As a child I was always drawing and sketching fashions. People called me an artist, but I felt very separated from the title because I had a very narrow view of what art was. After many years of living in NYC and selling my creations, I realized that I am an artist in every sense of the word. I paint, draw and create collages. Photography is one of my favorite forms of expression. It helps me express what words can not.

The Strange Series is a study of experimental infrared photography. The series was created with the help of a modified full spectrum camera that captures the combination of visible light and infrared light. The combination of both spectrums made it possible to create pictures with unusual, unfamiliar or peculiar colour renditions that still have a touch of reality to them. Strange colours. Strange shapes. Strange objects. A strange combination of nature & urban life. This pictorial series of infrared photos is a visual representation of the strange times we are currently facing. Strange times that don't feel like reality. But still are.

Ramiro Silva-Cortes Originally from Chile, born and raised in the town of Los Andes, in the central Valley of the Aconcagua. Moved to Santiago to attend college at the University of Arts, Science and Communications and worked as an art director and designer in the advertising industry. Currently based in Chicago, IL (USA) since December 2013. The work is the observation from a far, from self-isolation, as a witness of a society happening and evolving in the distance; the relation between depression, social anxiety and human interactions; the need of belonging and being a functional fragment of a whole. The use of geometrical shapes and a dreamy color palette aim to dehumanize the subject matter and enhance the fantasy of a perfect society. A metaphor to an unattainable beautiful dystopia.

Chito Padilla Chito Padilla is a self-taught artist who recently started painting one year into retirement. A Washington, DC resident for over thirty years, he is now a permanent resident of Marshall, VA. My style is influenced by the abstract expressionist movement which denotes the non-representational use of paint as a means of personal expression. There is no particular system I follow when I begin a painting. Each painting has its own way of evolving. One may start with a few color areas on the canvas; another with a myriad of lines; and perhaps another with a profusion of color. Once I sense the suggestion, I begin to paint intuitively. When the painting is finished the subject reveals itself. This approach is liberating to me and has allowed me the freedom of expression absent of boundaries.

Ece İkinci I am a Turkish artist and a Milan based designer. All of my artworks consist of an expression of my experiences or a mirror the way how I see outside. It is a mixed style by watercolor, pen, and markers. All the works have a soul I tell about my future plans or even things I regret in life are all inside of works. The reason why I am doing art is to run away from the boringness and monotony of life. I mostly use bright, clean colors to enhance the joy. By the pen and markers, works become more detailed by some figures and create a story behind every single touch. There is a particular fact, all works are different from the first sight when you look deeper you got into a new scene and that's the style of me. The complexity behind the complete.
