About me
Editor-in-chief TAGREE. In the 1980s and 1990s Michael Nguyen works as journalist, poet, photographer, publisher, editor-in-chief of four special interest magazines, concert organizer, bookseller, online editor. Two book publications, anthologies, magazines etc. At his core, Michael Nguyen is an artist, not a photographer but more a photographic poet or something he himself could not define. He moves away from the mainstream, at the same time blurs genres. Most of the time, he focuses on small, ordinary things but through the subjective lens, give them new perspectives, a new soul. "Michael Nguyen's photography is the art of showing more than you can see. Making visible - worshipping the invisible, he walks with the third eye of a wanderer through the visual adventure of life." "Michael Nguyen made a name for himself early on as a publisher of various magazines and periodicals. One of his main themes of work in the second half of the 1990s in the field of photography was "Greece". In close cooperation with Dr. Matthias Harder he created the basis for the understanding of the photographs by Herbert List and Walter Hege and was in charge of the direction, editing and publishing of Dr.Harder's subsequent articles. In 1989 he founded a local magazine in Berlin-Kreuzberg, which still successfully continues to portray life in the neighbourhood Kreuzberg and its people until today. From 2004, Michael Nguyen was editor-in-chief of an Indonesia magazine and split his time between Indonesia and Germany. In 2005, he dedicated the thematic booklet "Tsunami-Katastrophe auf Sumatra" (Panorama 1-2/2005) to the Aceh region and its people. In 2004 he filled a gap in German-language specialist literature with the publication of the special issue "Ponorogo -die freundliche Stadt des Reyog" (Panorama 7-8/2004). The prefaces for two of Nguyen's poetry volumes were written by Dr. Tilman Krause, who also wrote articles about forgotten authors in the early 1980s in the Berlin Literatur- & Kunstmagazin edited by Michael Nguyen. Ingo Arend, Dr. Gustav Seibt, Ines Geipel, Volker Weidermann and other journalists and writers were regular guests at Michael Nguyen's literary bookshop in Bergmann Street in Kreuzberg. The literary talk show "Das lesbische Quartett", founded by Michael Nguyen, is still successfully continued by Laura Méritt in Berlin today. His concert series with Greek singers such as Maria Farantouri, Angelique Ionatos, Alkistis Protopsalti and others, which took place in the Kreuzberg Passionskirche and in the Kulturbrauerei in Prenzlauer Berg, is still unforgotten today. He also invited numerous Greek authors to Berlin to present them to an interested audience within the framework of moderated readings. In the series of literature "Friday evening, Literature in Conversation", organized by Michael Nguyen, in June 1997 he presented the writer Perikles Monioudis, in the Kreuzberg Passionskirche, also he organized readings with Tschingis Aitmatov and Eckhard Henscheid. In April 1996, he organized a photo exhibition with works by Matthias Harder (today's chief curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin) at Chronika in Kreuzberg's Bergmannstraße. In the late 1980s, he published as German first releases the two stories "Rogomelec" and "Der Traumträger" by the Italian surrealist painter Leonor Fini. Nguyen's early photos have often nostalgic feels, some taken in the 1990s are now historical, such as Prague & Paris series. In 1992 Michael Nguyen was on his expeditions through Prague. Through around 50 photos, we look at the historical centre of Prague with its Gothic and Baroque townscape, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge and the Old Jewish Cemetery. However, Michael Nguyen’s main focus is on the little things in the city’s streetscape: construction sites, shop windows, picturesque alleys, traffic signs and garbage bins, cars, telephone booths… In his in -1994- created series „Paris“ we see around 45 pictures of off-the-beaten-path spots in the French capital. The paths lead through narrow streets and past small cafés. This photo series has an unlikely charm, which are in 2018 considered as already historical.

About me
I am an Acadian Canadian, born in Fredericton New Brunswick the year my father was elected Liberal Premier of the province. I played with stuffed animals instead of dolls, and my knees were always skinned. (3 older brothers). I was a constant doodler and it is a habit I could never give up. I adore nature and my country equally and paint on cloth canvas using acrylic paints. My goal is to paint as much as I can of nature while I can. So far, so good.
About me
My name is Fortunata Angelina, but my friends used to call me Lin. I live in Indonesia, precisely in a small town called Bondowoso. This town is so beautiful, the place and the people are so friendly. I am just a happy wife and a grateful mother with three awesome kids. I never dream and expect that I would be falling in love with this hobby so deep, especially since I only use an Android phone to take pictures.

About me
I am a photographer born in 1981 in Thessaloniki, Greece. I attended ESP Photography in Thessaloniki with a scholarship. I studied under Stratos Kalafatis, attending seminars at STUDIOTESSERA. I participated at the 2017 edition of Festival Circulations in Paris invited by Hercules Papaioannou with his work included in the Festival's catalogue and also at the Museum of European Culture's exhibition about Thessaloniki, in Berlin, in 2018. My works are exhibited at the Municipality of Thessaloniki’s Art Gallery and at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki's School of Political Sciences. My photography vision currently lies within the triviality of everyday urban and life patterns.
About me
My name is Honest Rawung, Iive in Indonesia. First time I used a camera in the 1980s, a film roll camera and manual focus then I stopped photographing around 1994.   In 2012, I started return, just capture the moments of family events, then in 2014 I was invited to the Photography model and started to take part in photo model events, for 2 years and fed up with the genre of photography models. While in the Photography Model, I learned a lot of editing with Photoshop. In 2016, I started leran the Landscape genre, because seeing more natural Landscape, more varied, the location of hunting was very diverse, from locations that are easily reached by car to those who have to walk a few kilometers, many exciting experiences to experienced, from the rain, stray and meet new friends. Since in Landscape Photography, families are also often invited while recreation.   Besides Landscape, along with some of my friends, I learned a number of other genres, such as Human Interest, Street Photography, Toy Photography, macro photography, cityscape, and most recently I was studying Miksang photography and Photography Experiment. (thank you to my best friend who wants to teach and learn together).   I know Tagree as an online magazine from a good friend who shares his knowledge of photography (thank you again to my best friend) and hope to participate in Tagree's participation in the world of photography
