David Shedlarz | Cover | Having had a proclivity for art at an early age, I pursued a dual major in college, Fine Arts and Economics. My first passion was painting but my path took me to a long corporate career. I put down my brush and picked up a camera. I’m a mathematician by nature and find the underpinnings of the medium format and technical cameras challenging. My interests span street portraiture, nightscapes and landscapes. In the last five years, I have dedicated myself to the pursuit of a professional career in photography. Born in the Bronx, NY, I feel at home in the heart of a busy city. The constant motion of the streets and all of its inhabitants inspires me.I aspire to capture enduring portraiture of real people in their environments going about the tasks of everyday life.
Seb Agnew | Grown – Syncope – Epiphany | Seb Agnew (born 1986) is an award-winning photo artist based in Hamburg, Germany. Within staged images, he creates hyperrealistic sceneries which explore the human psyche and our modern society. Set design, lighting and composition play a major role in his photographic work. Seb loves cinematic and mysterious settings as well as moments of disorientation and lonesome reflection. Depending on the concept, he transforms whole rooms or builds his locations completely as miniature sets in which he later integrates his life-size models.During his studies of “Audiovisual Media” in Stuttgart, Germany, Seb specialised in photography and post production to lay the foundations of his future work. In order to pass on his skills professionally, he later studied “Vocational Education” at the university of Hamburg, Germany.

Alain Licari | Did & Sons – Blowin´in the wind | Born in France, I’ve lived in Spain and now enjoy a life in New York City. A self-taught photographer, I am inspired by traditional black-and-white humanist photography, particularly the great masters like Sebastiao Salgado and Raymond Depardon; Mary Ellen Mark, Robert Franck or Dorothea Lange.Traveling around the globe, I create photo essays that cross art photography with photojournalism. I attach importance to producing an elegant photo in a geographical, social and humanistic context, with an emphasis on the latter. By catching the eyes of another, I seek a moment and a connection—in the humblest way—with the human soul. Even more, I want these simple shots of everyday life to raise questions.
