Osma Harvilahti

Luke Stephenson

Often humorous in their outlook, his series range from prize budgerigars to the World Beard and Moustache Championships. Whether animate or inanimate objects, Stephenson creates affectionate portraits of his subjects and documents worlds often hidden from the mainstream. He graduated in 2005 and has worked as a freelance photographer since. The same year he was awarded the Jerwood Photography Prize and in 2006 was selected as one of ten photographers to showcase their work at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography at Hyeres, France.

Inka and Niclas

"Like the furtive ornithologist or the sporting arctic explorer, Inka and Niclas seek to preserve the perfect moment when subject and surroundings engage and harmonize. They are fascinated by that instant when travelers go still, becoming carefully placed relics of the captured experience. In this way, they are anthropologists as much as image-makers." Inka and Niklas are fine art photographers living and working in Sweden.

Giasco Bertoli

Giasco Bertoli started by taking pictures of courts in 1999 in southern Switzerland. “I was walking in the woods near where I grew up and I came across an abandoned tennis court. Its spirit was fascinating.” He then went on to photograph other courts in the area, and what started as a pastime gradually developed into a creative obsession. He now shoots primarily for Purple Diary.

Paco Peregrin

Paco Peregrín was born in Almeria, Spain. Paco’s photography carries a perfect blend of sensuality with avant garde and his juxtapositions shows a mastery of the fine line between commercial success and art. Fusing hyper-real futurism with high-end beauty images, he is one of the talents of the Spanish photography with major personality. His work is defined by a marked character of hybridization of styles where come together the latest fashion trends and the most personal conceptual reflections, always providing to his images with a sensual, elegant and mysterious, even perturbing character, trying to interrelate the point of view of the traditional spectator of works of art with the most generic public of the mass-media.He has photographed and art-directed high-profile campaigns for global household names like Nike, Diesel, Adidas, Lee, Vögele Shoes, Gant, Mazda, Toyota, Levi's, EMI Music, Cosmopolitan TV, Jacinto Usán, Maria Barros, Cosentino, Paramita, Carlsberg, La Rinascente, etc.

Timothy Archibald

Timothy Archibald started photographing his autistic son Elijah when he was 5 years old. His aim was to document the often bizarre and incomprehensible world of his son but the project developed into much more. Elijah has a need for repetition, loves mechanical objects and is socially withdrawn and Timothy set out to document these often annoying habits and rituals. However, over time Elijah became more involved in the process and helped setup and organise locations and poses.

“According to Timothy, his project Echolilia helped him understand the situation, his role as father, but most importantly, to accept his own son’s differences. Those habits that first drove him nuts completely changed through his photos. In Echolilia, father and son create their own visual language, thanks to which they can communicate with each other even when there are no words they both can understand. In fact, Elijah receives positive attention for his rituals, can share something with his dad, and has even started to take his own photos."
