Charlotte Rutherford

Charlotte Rutherford’s photography is fun, bright and tinged with humor and 1980s sass. Shooting editorial for the likes of Vice and Tank magazine and look-books for Lazy Oaf and Baby G, the self-taught photographer maintains an aesthetic that is both well-informed and original. She cites David LaChapelle and Pierre et Gilles as major influences on her work, saying that they prove the encouraging dictum “OK cool, you can do like ANYTHING.” I couldn’t agree more.  

 

 

Michael Donovan

Michael Donovan uses visual art and a podcast to communicate his interests in the "Two Great Bookends of Life," (sex and death) as well as the exciting content that fills our experience. His work trains his eye on spirituality, intersections of culture mashups, materialism, youth, aging, objectification, mental health, environmentalism, and the confusion and joys we develop from living a life wandering through interesting times.  

 

 

Warren Du Preez & Nick Thornton-Jones

Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton-Jones have collaborated together since 1998. Their practice is a unique collision of art direction, concept, design, photography, image creation and post-production. Their design team is run from 'The Studio', in London's East End. Through a shared fascination of the image-making process and exploration of the digital revolution, they push their discipline towards creating a more three-dimensional canvas. They regard themselves to be part of a creative renaissance, and in this environment challenge themselves to create what they consider a 'hypervisual' aesthetic, a stimulating visual state they claim provokes 'a shift in consciousness'.

Tania et Vincent

Tania et Vincent are photographers who have lived and worked together in Paris for 5 years. They met in ECAL Art and Design School in Lausanne, where they were trained in photography and graphic design. Their work focuses on still life – not just simple depictions but compositions of the image to become a scene of surreal collages constructed with items in different materials and scales. Their images are created by mounting the works themselves in the studio rather than composed in post-production.

Lucasz Wierzbowski

Lukasz Wierzbowski was born in 1983 and is a self taught photographer living in Warsaw. Wierzbowski’s photographic work covers a huge range as he shoots in both colour, black and white, portraits and everything in between. Nevertheless, what really makes him stand out is his way of taking peculiar, yet eccentrically normal photos of mesmerizing girls in ordinary locations that turn magical when he adjusts his lens. In other words, photography at it’s best.
