Alex S. MacLean

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.

Carl Kleiner

Carl Kleiner is based in Stockholm, his impossibly bright, sharply cast still-life’s have penetrated the darkness of your existence (and you are all the better for it). In the past few years, his eye for golden-ratio compositions that set inanimate objects in dramatic contrast to block colours, light and each other have elevated these random items to sculptural status.

 

 

 

 

Osma Harvilahti

Osma Harvilahti is a Helsinki born photographer who travels the world and captures magical, graphic moments. Surreal and sublime, his work  is made most often using natural light and surroundings. Using mostly a Nikon 35mm, there is the most beautiful raw and organic feel to his images that make you feel as if you are there in the moment, with nothing but silence surrounding.

He also shoots for Wired. 2008, 2009 Grafik magazine relied on him exclusively to set the tone and create new and exciting still lives.
