I was born in 1977 in Warsaw, Poland. I have graduated from High School of Art in Warsaw. My passion to photography begins in early childhood. My father had a camera, which he takes each time with us to capture important moments of our life, nature. Since now I remember specific smell of camera’s body (different as present), specific smell of case, made from very hard material and upholstered with velour. Already then I liked to look at the world through the lens, crop it, select the best shots. After a few years I took over the camera, but did not take photography seriously. It was just learning, only technical aspect, skill and knowledge of photographs from the hardware side. At least at the end of ’80 and the beginning of ’90 I figured out, that it could be something more than just clicking and taking some ordinary photos. In my mind idea about mixing photography with painting it was just thought which I don’t use since beginning of the new millennium. My serious journey into my own the world of photography and photomanipulation begins in 2004 when I have opened "the door" to my own world with help of a different key. Until that time my biggest passion was painting, which helped me to develop a vision that was hard to create with other visual techniques. I made everything by myself, what my soul said, learning and feeling, inside need. My inspirations about composition, coloring, saturation, expression, scenery comes more from painting masters like John Martin, Zdzisław Beksiński and Caspar David Friedrich. My early fascinations of painting and photography have been combined into one piece, with the use of digital tools. That digital photography and software gave me the opportunity to generate unique realities that were impossible to be created with an ordinary dark room techniques.

Most of my work is like a journey to the places which don't exist. Places from my dreams, desire, imagination and fears. This is my escape from reality which is not enough for me. My inspiration comes from many artists and it doesn't matter if they get through to me by the sense of vision or hearing. I can tell that music has the biggest impact on my work. It’s an inseparable element with pictures in my mind, a kind of sound illustration to a visible scenery. These two things hit me with the strongest intensity. Everywhere I’m going I’m taking my camera with me. It always, somewhere could be this only moment which I want to let through my imagination filter. Place, time, memory. When I’m watching reality I’ see this all like through the lens. I see frames, possible pictures, scenes, compositions. In most of cases I know already, in the beginning how I could effect to reality. This is like starting a creative machine right after first sight. First of all is initial picture, after this I create mood on existing photography with help of some light effects or colors, curves or with deep ingerention – photomanipulation, collage with different elements which after mixing they become complete work. I’m trying to do this as my best, involving my best skills to create picture which will be not far from my first vision and primal inspiration. Each work is processing of existing places so any observant person can find among them familiar parts of landscape. In creating process first of all is thought and idea. After this I’m searching appropriate elements of composition, places, moments. Very often it’s a long time. I still have many projects which have been not realized because of lack of elements elements materials. I’m mixing my pictures in one piece from individual pieces taking care of composition and natural looking final effect. I want everything to be done so anyone could distinguish which was real and what’s montage. Appropriate coloring, shadows, lights, precise cutting and pasting and….done. Since many years, many of people helped me to understand that I’ve chosen the right way for my self realization. It gave me an opportunity to show my world and to share it. This is what I’m doing, this is what I love to do and it’s still not everything what I want to say. Each day I see more, I’m exploring more things which I want to share with You. I’m inviting You to my world.

Alexander Khokhlov and Veronica Ershova is a photographers duo world renowned for it’s creative projects. Unconventional ideas and daring approach to common shootings are their calling card. Most talked-about series Weird Beauty and 2D or not 2D were created in collaboration with famous russian make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan. Mix of face art, photography and post-production allowed to create optical illusions. 2D or not 2D series were included in Designcollector’s top-10 of Russian projects in 2013. In 2013 Alexander and Veronica started new art-project called Table Stories. The series is based on the mix of photography and philology, where authors showed their experiments with wordgames and paraphrases. The high-key images are squared and have the only white table as a decoration. It helped to achieve minimalistic approach in Table Stories and to make it funny, laconic and stylish. The result of reincarnation of Marge Simpson made by Alexander and Veronica in 2014 was scary but attracting - the YouTube backstage video got more than 700,000 views for the first three weeks and still popular. The combination of unusual ideas, photographic skills and careful retouching helps duo to create any visual solutions - from amazing art-projects to peculiar collages for adverising. Alexander and Veronica really care about the quality of their shootings, that’s why the duo collaborates only with top-level stylists, make-up artists, image designers, etc. Alexander and Veronica’s work featured in world mass media including USA Today, CNN, Fox Tv, NBC News, SBS (Australia), Scientific American MIND, Professional Photographer, Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, Wired, Holland Herald, Stern, 20 minutos, Phlearn.com and others. The work Silhouette from Weird Beauty series featured in the book Illusion Confusion: The Wonderful World of Optical Deception by famous publishing house Thames & Hudson (London). 47

I am 36 year old a self taught photographer living and working in Surrey, England. I have had a passion for photography for many years now and in the last few years have taken steps towards it becoming a full time profession. I have been fortunate enough to have exhibited my work in the USA, Canada, France and here in the UK - Picking up a number of international awards along the way. Primarily working in Black & White I specialise in a technique called 'Daytime Long Exposure' using Neutral Density (ND) filters attached to the lens. ND filters cut out the amount of light coming into the lens allowing the shutter to be left open for much longer than normal, capturing movement with an ethereal aesthetic. My images range from 30 second exposures to 15+ minutes.

I am Sandra Strazdaite based in Lithuania. Since my childhood I was attracted to visual arts, painting mostly. I had a dream to become a fashion costume designer when I grow up. When I was 14 things changed. I didn’t lose my passion for painting, but the camera my dad gave me drew me into photography. Since then I started taking self-portraits and gained some photography experience. Later I started reading books about photography and wasn’t taking any pictures for the time being. When I was 18 I bought my first digital camera and started taking pictures of nature. I became addicted to macrophotography, as the camera revealed worlds unseen by a naked eye. When I graduated from school I studied, Technology of photography at Vilnius University of Applied Engineering Sciences, and obtained a Photo Journalist bachelor degree. I prefer portrait photography, mostly creative and conceptual style. But I also enjoy exploring dance, nature photography.

My name is Elena López Ferran, I was born in 1978 in Reus city (Catalunya, Spain). When I was very young I loved music and drawing, in my family there were musicians, painters and sculptors, so at the age of 17 I started play music. I always had a passion for technology and computers and the ambition to learn. When I was 27 years old I was impressed by the “world of light” and I got my first reflex camera. I liked to take pictures: I wanted to capture the viewer's attention. I experimented how to capture a photo in a different ways and I learned different fields: macro, lightpainting, landscape, people... but then I discovered what I loved the most: conceptual and surreal photography, and I discovered photoshop! I decided to create my website to show my works and I shared my creations on social networks. Music still influences the creation of my ideas, it has an important role in my art. I always listen to music when I work, it helps me to see things differently. Normally I sit with a notebook and pencil, with the music on and I draw some ideas… listen to my senses.

I learn from great artists such as Chema Madoz, Salvador Dalí, Erik Johansson as well as other renowned photographers. Currently, I work as a freelance for personal commissions and I sell my photographs online.
