Jean-Pierre Damen My name is Jean-Pierre Damen. I am an urban photographer from Berlin in Germany.I document urbanity in its broadest sense: from street impressions to abstracts views on the city, from atmospheric night shots to (life in) urban space and architecture.My work is multi-commended at international photo-awards. General recurring themes in my work are the relation between hyper-individuality and isolation and existential anxiety caused by modernity. She Said
This photo is an intimate moment where two girls whisper to each other while walking the platform of the subway. The intimacy is felt because of the closeness but also because the two girls visually morph into one another.

Dave Harvey While primarily a musician, I find photography an important second mode of expression; specifically film photography. Digital art forms too frequently show us our world in stark, literal terms. Analog arts â€“ still film photography, motion picture shot on film, music recorded on tape, and more â€“ reflect our world back to us in a transformed manner. It's not a literal reality, it's certainly not a virtual reality, but more an enhanced reality. There's a natural artistry that analog processes draw out. Of equal importance is the element of chance, or even the element of chaos. It's harder to control manual analog processes, and so one ends up with more happy accidents, less perfection. Perfection is an enemy of art. Most of my favorite photos are the ones that didn't come out as I imagined â€“ perhaps there's a light leak, or poor exposure, or the camera itself malfunctioned. These are all things I won't find out about until getting the film developed. Were I shooting digital, I likely would have deleted the image and tried again. It is, of course, possible to make great art in the digital realm, and even possible to inject an analog aesthetic into it. It's just not the way I've chosen to approach my photography, and music as well.

Peter Marek I was born in 1968 in Czechoslovakia. I live in a part of the former Czechoslovakia - in Slovakia. After a series of many mistakes and erroneous decisions, I have devoted myself to photography for decades. I work in the National Gallery, teach photography and devote myself to my free creation. I am not a landscape photographer but I use the natural environment to express my feelings. I do not solve problems through photography. Own or others. I just want to give the image a feeling. Message. About the need to seek peace and harmony. Feeling of the perfect presence of God all around us. The series I have been working for a long time is called "Lesografie" (Les = forrest, grafie = drawing with light). From it are also these photos. I like luxury when I expose 200 rolls of film and from 2400 shots after 5 years I choose 6 photo. I'm slow.

George Appletree Born in Spain, I adopted my artist name and live now in the south of Portugal.I'm a self taught independent photographer educated as a Naval Architect. Since the 90´s I've been taking photographs into several directions, for later focusing towards street photography, and at the end practising my own style, which includes analog, digital, pinhole and alternative photographs. Though some, departing from photography, want to embrace fiction thanks to technology, I rather keep attached to the real and believe the process doesn't make the style.

Frederic Chais As a visual artist, I have worked a lot on the change of the image's meaning through loss of legibility of its subject, achieved through different processes such as alteration. The pictoric ambiguity of the photography can then make us become aware of the ephemeral aspect of the image, but also of the distance between reality and what we keep from it. In the same way that a memory keeps building permanently, an image's reading evolves according to our emotions. We constantly re-create our own story, in the same way that we invent our own reading of the images presented to us. Reality is only an excuse for the creation of a shared space between the photography that proposes and the viewer that re-invents a meaning exclusive to himself or herself. Fragility, loss and impermanence come to reinforce the awareness of the fact that the subject is no more, inviting us to rush and grasp the few bits that still remain.

As a result of his background, Ronaldâ€™s colorful, vibrant paintings have a distinct graphic, street art style. He finds inspiration in layers of street posters, that create their own abstract compositions of colors and shapes as they are posted on top of each other and torn down in urban spaces.

I am Annelie, 26, from southern Germany and I have been an enthusiastic painter for more than 15 years now. Most of my colourful paintings are created by the direct application of the acrylic colours with the help of large palette knives, some as big as cake shovels. I also use watercolour and oil paints to add a special expression. I often choose different parts of bodies because it is usually not only the colour that gives the picture the energy but also the shadow and the light. Another passion is abstract painting. In all works, the harmonious selection of colours and forms contains a certain contradiction, which always invites to discover something new.

Scott Gieske I constantly feel like most humans try to control the uncontrollable. To counter this notion with my art, I began getting input directly from nature. I leverage the natural world to influence and create beautiful images. I do not control the formation, just like we do not really control life. I started sending sheets of paper into the heart of nature, leaving them to the wind, the streams, and the forests. I left them in the natural environment for extended periods of time, letting mother nature imprint upon them what she would. The interplay between color and texture, creates intriguing and indescribable ambiances.

Bazévian Delacapucinière Bazévian Delacapucinière is an artist, now based in France who painted vibrant figurative painting with vivid colors. Norwegian, Brasilian, Korean, Bazévian spent 10 years on the road, meeting a lot of artists and people. Bazévian focuses mostly on portraits, because the face is a vital part of how we express ourselves. «Face is language and meaning. It is obviously the location for the expressions and emotions which gives information about the character. However, the face is also the only part of the body that is normally exposed and naked. We can't hide it in our society. Finally, it belongs to social issue".

When I release my first songs it wasn't the best , but I did it. I received some feedback - positive, negative, and all this did teach me a good lesson. I know where I did mistakes , what should I change , in short - another experiences. Now I want to concentrate more on quality than quantity + video production. When I create a song or album, all I use is my imagination and creativity. Then works with a lot of samples (for example wav or midi) + use memories from the past."
