Mike Fell is a photographer specializing in African wildlife and conservation related issues. As a wildlife fanatic, safari guide, and conservationist with 21 years of experience in the field, Mike believes that photography and story telling are key components of conservation. With a deep respect and understanding for African wildlife, his work explores its diversity and emphasizes the impact of human activity on wildlife in his home continent of Africa. Mike’s primary business is establishing safari operations in wildlife areas outside of national parks. He is involved in large-scale conservation and community initiatives in East, Central and West Africa. Mike is committed to supporting the Governments of these countries in their endeavors to protect the fauna and flora for future generations. His anti-poaching efforts throughout the year are extensive. These efforts include funding transport, providing fuel and manpower and training security teams for regular anti-poaching exercises over these huge desolate areas. Mike’s passion provides him incredible access to wildlife and often takes him to remote destinations. This regularly puts him in situations where he is up close and personal with wild animals and that is why his photos often arouse feelings of intimacy with the creatures he depicts. Action is needed to preserve our natural world. Mike’s hope is that his photographs will inspire people to join the cause to help stop senseless destruction of the environment and the animals that inhabit it.

Dominique Genin Alberto Giacometti, the great sculptor, mentioned that “the object of Art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity”. Black and white photography allows us to create other realities, closer to what we want to express, by getting rid of unnecessary distractions brought by colors. Translate the reality into black and white can be achieved in many ways but personally, black fascinates me because it makes everything more intense. As a photographer, I’m interested by the light. How can we express the essence of light and what it evokes? I choose to use deep dark tones to reveal the light, the lines, the abstract shapes. I choose to let the light shine out of the darkness. I consider this to be an optimistic vision of darkness. But perhaps even more importantly I’m using black and light as a support for the viewer’s own imagination. It is very important for me that my images get differently perceived by different people, that each individual sees and feels something specific. An image has two levels of perception: on the one hand the abstract lines, shapes and light jumping out of the dark, and on the other hand the impressions and inner images that open in the viewer’s soul.

Time and space are central in my pictures. The images are quite frontal and must be viewed as a whole. They act like a cloudy mirror in which the viewer can find himself, where the time stops and opens a door into the viewer’s imagination and blurred memories. For that reason, this series is entitled “The Doors of Perception”, in reference to Aldous Huxley’s book.

The starting point of my process is making a picture using different artifices, such as filters that deform light, broken mirrors that reflect light, multiple exposures, etc. In this way I get a picture that works like a canvas for the post production where I dive into deep dark tones to unlock the light. Light is a blessing for whom can weave his rays. I have partly found my inspiration in the work of the abstract French painter Pierre Soulages, known as “the painter of black” especially with his “Outre-Noir” (Beyond Black) paintings. His works is known for its endless black depth, created by playing with the light reflected off of the texture of the paint. It is not obvious to translate this technique into the world of photography. For each picture I’m therefore making a specific filter that ideally refracts and distorts the light. Doing this “in the field” allows me to be more creative, to work in a kind of trial and error mode untill I get the desired effect. This provides me with the pleasant feeling of making the picture instead of taking it.

Joshua Sarinana Dr. Joshua Sariñana was born in San José, California. He obtained his neuroscience degrees at the University of California, Los Angeles and in a Nobel Prize winning lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). After MIT he became a research fellow at Harvard Medical School where he studied the computational processing of spatial navigation. Sariñana is currently a writer and fine arts photographer. Sariñana has had a solo exhibition at the Griffin Museum of Photography, shown at the Houston Center for Photography, Photoville, and the Center for Fine Art Photography. His work has been recognized by the Sony World Photography Awards, Communication Arts, PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris, and the Head On Photo Awards. In addition, Sariñana’s work has been featured on Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, and Time. One of his images was also licensed for an iPhone 6 commercial campaign. Sariñana has published several articles on the intersection of photography, neuroscience including in the photography periodicals Don’t Take Pictures and The Smart View. He has also been interviewed by several influential photography blogs as well as Vice Magazine. Sariñana currently resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts. STATEMENT: I use photography to reconcile three distinct aspects of memory, that is, past present, and future. Whenever a memory is recalled it is changed. Brain regions become reactivated when a meaningful cue (e.g., the smell of a loved ones t-shirt, a melancholy song, a picture of a childhood friend) presents itself. The reactivated brain become susceptible to change for a short time, allowing new information or feelings to be inserted and integrated into our past experiences or potentially peeled away from psychological access. Using imagery to ignite feelings that are difficult to address may provide nostalgic relief as we grow, age, and confront the trials and tribulations that are inherent to connecting with others.

Rosario Civello Rosario Civello began to be interested in Photography by the latest ‘70s, taking photographs with his father’s old camera and making researches in different directions to free his creative spirit and get deeper in an increasing sensibility of his visual language. Now he finds constant inspiration in the Nature, in the secret language of the landscapes that becomes clear when the subject appears to be loved and taken as a picture. His love for Nature, in its broadest meaning, led him to study Astronomy at the University of Bologna where he obtained his degree. The space surrounding us is often composed of numerous elements arranged chaotically. Everything he does is to put order in the composition, creating a balance of elements light and dark, points, lines, planes and forms. He visually deconstructs the scene, discarding the superfluous, so that it fits to its natural inclination towards minimalism. His artworks have been exhibited in Italy and he has received several international awards and prizes. He has been elected Photographer of the Year 2015 at the 4th Zebra Awards and Discovery Of The Year 2016 at the ND Awards.

Craig Colvin Craig Colvin is an award-winning photographer and educator based in San Jose, CA. Craig uses photography to share the visions that are in his mind and is happiest when his finger is on the shutter button. His primary focus is using the human body as art. This is expressed in many forms; abstracting the body and concentrating on patterns, shapes, and geometry so the viewer isn’t always sure at first glance if the image contains a body or not; using light and shadow to emphasize the lines and form of the body; or using the body to mimic the shapes and curves that are found in nature. This might be the gentle slope of a sand dune, a curve of a rock, or the rolling hills of a mountain range. Making a body conform to natural formations reinforces this similarity between the nature of the body and the nature of the land. Craig’s work has been published in numerous magazines and books, and exhibited in galleries and shows worldwide. He teaches photography workshops throughout the US and online photography courses through This Week in Photography School.

Gregory D’Agostino The subject of my photos ranges from stark landscapes to city street shooting, and portraits as well. I shoot what interests me, and that includes a lot. While I have been shooting since childhood, my training was as a classical musician at The Juilliard School in New York with a subsequent, and current, career as a professional musician. To this I have in recent years added photography. As the practice of one’s instrument is a solitary activity, there is an aspect of that that is reflected in my photos. Thus, a good bit of my landscape photography portrays a certain aloneness along with an awesome sense of wonder and mystery. In my street photography, again, you will more often than not find an isolated figure – noticed by others or not – in the midst of an urban environment. I strive to tell a story, often through a protagonist. Sometimes, the story’s protagonist takes the form of a person or a mountain, and at other times it is the mood itself. Another aspect of my photos is rhythm, and yet another is that of structure or composition. You can observe the contrasts of rhythm and structure in the seeming opposites of an intriguing landscape and apoignant scene of a homeless person fishing for coins.When all aspects work well together, a photograph creates impressions and arouses emotions. That is truly what the art of photography documents.

I’m Interested in shooting peoples, landscape and street photography. My camera will be with me whenever i travel locally or others countries. For me, a good image tells a story, its will inspiring the spectator’s feeling and emotion and become curious to know more about the peoples, cultures or sceneries in different places. As a working woman and a mother of two young kids, i don’t have much time to devote to photography as i would like, but i enjoyed every moment of photographing. I have just started to enter few international photography competition in 2016 and i have been very fortunate to received some honorable mention for my photos, this give me a very big encouragement to continue in my journey of photography.
