The performer Syazwan Rahmad, uses the medium of white powder to powerfully accentuate his movements and strides. The photos were then pieced together in post-process to create the context of the creative chaos being created by the performer.” – The choreographer and performer trained in various dance styles such as hip-hop, jazz funk, street jazz and ethnic fusion. He is also known as one of the members of the Limited Edition SG Crew. He conducts dance courses in the above mentioned dance genres for all age groups.

Antonio Luis Remartinez / Spain: “My name is Antonio, I am living in Spain. In these images I try to show the duality of things, of images, of thoughts. Faced with a unique reality, a “beautiful” or unique image, with the processing, with the union of several images, that reality is transformed for us, it ends up being presented in a totally different way, harder, deeper, perhaps more reflective. I interpret photography as an inner way of expressing concerns, fears, thoughts; a deconstruction of the same reality.” Instagram Contact

Jack Savage / United Kingdom: “A documentary / street series showcasing the inhabitants of the English town of Northampton – a place where urban poverty, street fashion, strange and mundane antics, and some amazing characters converge, as I attempt to document the raw and visceral culture of the Town’s streets through the vehicle of on location portraiture. Here street scenes are documented through a monochromatic lens – a style keeping to traditionalist photographic values of our not so distant past. The images portray Northampton’s native folk in a naturalistic fashion – documenting the gritty black and white classical style of street portraiture – with more than a passing nod to the tradition of British Social Realism, both from cinema and photography.”   Instagram Contact

Thierry Lair / France:   “Against the tide of our time where everything is speed, greedy consumption, trivialization of coldness, where feelings are haggled, I set down my tripod and set my digital eye on my environment, failing which I imagine it by manipulating images. It is in contemplation that I share my feelings and time finds its place in my work, and an important place. For me the beauty that surrounds me deserves the greatest attention and the greatest respect, it is fragile and constantly threatened. My photos try with modesty and simplicity to honor this beauty, during my walks there are many opportunities to meet and seize it and then share it. Without really any committed message, I nevertheless magnifies this Nature which is dear to me and hopes to be able to show me his affection for a long time to come.” Instagram Contact
Alessandro Paroldi
Alessandro Paroldi / Italy: “My passion for photography was born several years ago, when as a kid I enjoyed taking pictures with my parents’ cameras, simple photos, moments of family life, common souvenir photos as happens in every family. I still remember the emotion you felt when you saw the photographs for the first time, how the expressions were commented on and with what care they were filed. At the age of about 20, I bought my first SLR, and from that moment the doors of a new world opened for me. I began to experiment with different forms of photography, to play with colors, lights, shadows, to immortalize contexts and situations that appeared before my eyes. In those years the conviction began to develop in me that each photograph represented a particular vision of reality, a subjective vision of the photographer, conditioned both by the mood and the emotions and energy that a given context can offer. Usually when I arrive in a place I never start shooting immediately, first I try to settle in, to isolate myself, to observe and perceive the emotions that that context manages to transmit to me, only later I take the camera and start taking pictures. My way of interpreting photography is dynamic and changeable, I have never been anchored to precise patterns and styles, I love improvisation in all its forms, I love to capture the moments that pass before my eyes as I see them in that moment, I feel them, and I live them.” Instagram Contact
Ligin Lee
Ligin Lee / Taiwan: “At the age of 55, after graduating from the Institute of Visual Arts at Taipei City University, I created artworks that take human life as their starting point. In my photo artworks I show the meaning of life, the reality seen and undermined by the eyes. I create new visual concepts that wander between self-expression and the subconscious. During my work a window of the soul seems to open unconsciously. On the one hand we build up, on the other hand we disassemble ourselves and then redesign. It is like a journey, but also a way forward.” Click on the large picture to open the gallery and for full size mode Instagram Contact
Joy of Street Seller by Cenk Bayirli - Street seller in Galata bridge is jumping into the Bosphorus for show off, where swimming is dangerous due to the cruise boats.
Cenk Bayirli / Turkey: “My documentary street photography is mainly based on hours of waiting to be able to capture a spontaneous real life moment in a black and white frame. I pick a spot in the city, blend in the crowd and interact with people. I like to take close up photos of people to reveal the emotions. When I take pictures of random people, I prefer to share it with them. For me street photography is storytelling with layers using full frame wide angle lenses either 24 mm or 35 mm focal lengths. Currently, I am working on long term photography projects.“ Click on the large picture to open the gallery and for full size mode Instagram Contact
