Gracing the cover of this issue, Veronica Dragonetti’s story ‘Paint Flow’ was originally created by the photographer as an artistic and experimental approach to post-production image editing: the result is a beautifully-hued story in which simplicity and minimalism mix with complex, cutting-edge forms. Through repetitive reconstructions, Veronica transforms each image’s narrative yet preserves the essence of the garments and shoot with originality and flair. We’re inspired by this story and are eager to present it to you as an exclusive contribution to our Winter 2014 pages. ∞ AC

------Pierre Folk

By the silent line With his photographic series ‘By the silent line’, Paris-based photographer Pierre Folk creates a captivating world, in which he uses an abandoned railway track to convey mankind’s fast-paced and forgetful nature. We dive deep into Pierre’s explorative series, which connects mankind to all that surrounds it.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your experiences with photography...

I’m a 28-year-old photographer currently living in Paris. I guess I’ve had a lot of early experiences with photography. Like many kids, I had a camera in hand from time to time but didn’t take it seriously. This radically changed a few years ago, when a friend of mine showed me ‘Sleeping by the Mississippi’, a project by Alec Soth. I was blown away. >

------Serrah Russell

“I am a series of dichotomies.� Mixing digital photographs, instant film and found imagery, budding collage artist Serrah Russell deconstructs and recreates narratives centred around time, relationships and nature. At 28, the Seattle-based artist speaks of her affinity to polaroids, her use of collaborations to overcome envy, and her utmost devotion to collage art.

Who is Serrah Russell?

I am a series of dichotomies. A lover of people but full of social anxiety. An optimist but completely affected by the smallest of tragedies or injustices. I am a visual artist, working with instant film, found imagery and digital photography to create works of collage. I am a founder of Violet Strays, an online exhibition space started in 2011, where I curate temporal exhibitions with an emphasis on artist experimentation and connection through the internet. I am a wife, daughter, friend, sister. I am a creator, collaborator, curator, connector. >

polaroids as an act of collage. In ‘Geographics’, the polaroids are a document of my placement of National Geographic imagery within new environments, collaging in real life. In ‘Equivalents’, I treat the photographic act as a form of “cutting”; removing the context and drawing attention to small fragments within larger found images.

What are the main difficulties you face, and how do you seek to overcome them?

As an artist, I would say the most difficult thing is to keep at it. It’s a hustle, it’s a struggle, and you’ve got to keep challenging yourself and not get too comfortable or too discouraged. There are rejections, failures, bad reviews, losses, and you have to just get back into the studio and keep going. But it’s also equally hard to appreciate the milestones and successes. It’s easy to keep working and pushing, and not let yourself enjoy when the moments and accomplishments you were working for actually come along. It’s also difficult to learn to say no, not to take every opportunity that comes your way and to stretch yourself too far. I have found that often, the best work comes for me when there is time and space for exploration and experimentation, rather than a rushed deadline to make something happen. And of course, keeping fear and envy out of it is a struggle. >

Magda Pietruszka

Rising photographer Magda Pietruszka impresses with her l a t e s t s t o r y ‘A L i t t l e J o k e ’ , w h i c h brilliantly plays with overstated accessories, hair and stylings to create a fun yet consistently sophisticated atmosphere. Pairing a dark, regal quality with a carefree approach, Magda presents a high fashion shoot through a very unique angle, and offers her rather lighthearted take on the world of fashion. ∞ AC

------Hye-Jin Yang

A N I N T I M AT E BLU R With this mysterious and blurred set of photographs, Hye-Jin Yang expresses not just the world as she sees it, but also her own deep-set emotions and understanding of herself. She shares her thoughts on her photographic practice, as well as how much this shoot means to her personally, in an eyeopening interview with NeverLazy Magazine.

----- “Images seen through other people’s daily lives rather than my own have become the focus.”

In the passing of time there always exists the past, the present and the future, and this passing of time is recorded in photos. In my work I feel that there are momentary appearances of the past. I also look at the present through feelings of relief and regret, and at the future through the notions of hope and anxiety. The feelings in my photos are associated with myself and therefore, I can concentrate on myself through photography.

What were you aiming for in using a blurred effect?

At the start of my practice, my photos explored the memories of loneliness, >

Shot by photographer Verena Mandragora and styled by Maria Steiner, ‘Ghost’ is an explosion of drama and movement, and it hits viewers with a memorable dose of otherworldliness. ∞ AC

IMMERSION Although it boasts a cool colour scheme, Katarzyna Czerniak’s latest editorial story ‘Immersion’ still has us longing for the scented and floral days past. Katarzyna presents a mature narrative through a set of atmospheric photographs, which strikes up an undeniable nostalgia as much as it evokes timeless glamour. A beautiful and simple shoot styled by Agnieszka Nowicka, with make-up by Delfina KardasKotlicka. ∞ AC
