Jatin Kampani Jatin Kampani is one of that rare breed who has been able to transform a passion into a career. From being a shutterbug in childhood, Kampani graduated to becoming a professional photographer in 1996.

And for the years 2011 and 2012 he has had the distinction of receiving the ‘Best Photographer of the Year Award’ by ‘Asian Photography’, a photography Magazine that honors the photography fraternity as whole– a part of the SAP media group.

A decade on from his professional debut, he became the first Indian photographer whose work was selected to be on the cover of Lurzer’s Archive, a magazine that publishes works of excellence in advertising from around the world. Successively, over the last two years he has been featured in Archive’s special edition of ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’.

Merits aside, his insatiable passion has led him to hold several group shows across the country.

In 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011 Jatin Kampani’s images won at the International Photography Awards (IPA). He was one of the illustrious 40 from the International Photography Awards to have his image chosen by renowned curators Colin Westerbeck and Dr. Anthony Bannon, Director of the George Eastman House to be a part of the traveling “International Photography Best of Show”. An exclusive exhibition encompassing a collection of the top photographs of the competition, the ‘Best of Show’ travels to approximately nine international cities, spanning 6 countries (at major photography venues and events) over the course of the year.

Included in Kampani’s repertoire are outstanding advertising campaigns that he executed for clients like De Beers, World Gold Council, Marriott Incorporated, ITC, L’Oreal, Motorola, Bacardi, Seagram’s India, ESPN, Pepsi, Canon and Sony to name a few. Fashion has been his middle name for sometime now, having crafted some feted wonders for publications like Elle, Marie Claire, L’Officiel, GQ, Grazia, Hello, OK, People and Verve. Kampani’s body of work also includes portraits of a number of distinguished individuals. Her Highness late Rajmata Gayatri Devi, Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, KV Kamat, Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hritik Roshan, Pandit Shivkumar Sharma are a few of those whose finer details Kampani has captured through his lenses.

Awards and accomplishments have not stopped there. He went on to win the prestigious Black and White Spider Awards and the PX3 Awards, Paris, in advertising, fashion and fine art consecutively, from 2007 to 2011.

Phil Cook Making images has been my passion for the entirety of my life, as far back as I can remember. Some people may think this is a little too strong, in my opinion, its been the reason for my existence. I love to share how I see the world around me. I started oil painting classes at 10 years old and later on down the line this developed into a love of photography. This has been my career for 20 years, working as an advertising photographer in London for the majority of this time. I’ve gone full circle now and have recently picked up the paint brush, this time incorporating my skills in photoshop as I now paint digitally, using a pen tablet instead of brushes and paint. My love of photography is still strong, I have just decided to go back to painting because not so many people can say they paint. I get a little tired of people telling me they too are photographers…… because they take photographs they seem to think it gives them automatic rights to call themselves a photographer. It feels to me like it cheapens the craft of being a photographer. Then again it could be said, depending on how old your eyes are that digital technology may have done the same thing to the overall craft of photography. At this moment in my life I am trying very hard to find outlets to share the way I see things, I hope you enjoy my way of seeing. www.philcook.com

Lennette Newell Lying on the border between photography, art and public service announcement these images were conceived for impact. Although I photograph this loving captive African Elephant away from her birthplace, the portraits display the graceful, bright personality of the elephant without a complicated background. My continued education and desperate hope to help save this species led to this project as the need to help these animals intensifies. Fascinated by the majestic beauty, intelligence and highly social nature of these animals, I utilize the stark canvas to present black & white images of the powerful African Savanna Elephant juxtaposed against grim red, signifying the blood from elephants slaughtered daily for their ivory. The bright red abstract symbols and type quickly grab the viewers attention, and as their eyes linger on the black and white elephant beneath, the viewers mind begins to conjure emotions in relation to the photograph and the text. http://www.lennettenewell.com

African Elephants are slow breeders and the need to protect them immediately is of the utmost priority due to the rapid rate of deaths caused by ivory poachers. Gestation lasts for 22 months, and is followed by weaning for around 6-18 months, although some young nurse for 6 years or more. Males obtain sexual maturity at around 10 years, but cannot compete for matings until they are more than 20 years old. Females reach sexual maturity at around 11 years, upon which they can give birth approximately once every 5 years. Science suggests that the older males, aging between 40 and 50 years, possess very strong DNA, which is needed to keep the population healthy. Unfortunately, the beautiful large tusks of older males are the biggest target for ivory poachers. Though even the smaller tusks of female elephants are often poached, leaving their babies to starve. The elephant is an important “keystone� species, analogous to a keystone in a stone arch, they are crucial to the strength of their ecosystems. Without elephants, the savannah and tropical forest zones they inhabit will suffer severe irreversible damage. Without elephants, planet Earth loses one of its most magnificent creatures.

Euro Rotelli In my photographic research, I have always investigated and interpreted the human body, which is almost an obsession for me, an everlasting curiosity to acknowledge and to re-propose according to my personal view, this subject which is still so mysterious, even though nowadays the body is presented and proposed with great facility and ease. On this path, I have thus inevitably drawn near to the world of dance, a supreme celebration of the human body. Only then I found what I was looking for: the link between the body and the soul, the extreme sublimation of the human figure. Dance has always been a human necessity for transmitting its desires, representing its cultural identity, expressing itself and, in the end, approaching the divine. At the same time, art has been interpreting this primordial need up to nowadays starting from the ancient graffiti, rock paintings, votive statues, going through to the figurative arts (how can we forget the Impressionists...) and sculpture, and finally we reach photography and videos. Dance itself is a form of art and precisely “art of body movement”, the only art that takes place in time and space. Like in every artistic expression, it is the summary of work, sacrifice and pain which

are revealed in those sublime movements. It is the body which moves and this is the supreme artistic act. So, dance is a form of art that one must only watch and assist its performance in order to enjoy and appreciate its significance just for the intrinsic peculiarity of the movements. Therefore photography seems to be antithetic to the dance, the less suitable art to pick up its significance, as in one snapshot it “freezes” a single gesture. This is true if we consider photography to be a pure means of documentary. But photography is not only this. It has become and it is recognized all over the universe as an artistic performance, where the photographic instrument is only a way of expression belonging to the artist, not the technical character considered in the past. It was while, using my last Polaroid films which are no longer produced, I was able to carry out this wish. These lovely figures have completely fascinated and involved me in their enchanted world, thus I felt this impelling need to transmit at the same time these emotions, reveal the aura and the soul of these creatures. http://www.eurorotelli.com/

They have danced for me, giving me their beauty and charm, but also the hard work and sweat that are the basic way of reaching perfection and at last sublimation. I discovered some ethereal steel bodies, fruits of tenacious will, dedication and above all love and passion for this form of art erroneously called “profession�. I tried to capture their magic flow, a secret thought, the imperceptible gesture that sustains the whole harmony. I stopped their steps, to multiply them to infinity. I embroidered the lightness of their vaultings and caressed their ethereal bodies. I built a stage for them, of oneiric dimensions, where they could dance. I interpreted their dreams and told their stories. I tried to transmit the rustle of their fantastic dresses and the music that accompanied them. I noticed more and more the sweetness, the sadness, the suffering and the gentleness in their glances. I contrasted the elegance and the loveliness of a moment with the vehemence of an intensive passion. I drew the perfect symmetry of a gesture and the grace of a light silhouette. Above all I thank them for having given me, through their body, their soul.
