Nick Gandano | Anthracite | He is the alter ego of Carlos Aguilar, a professional photographer dedicated to real estate and social photography on the Spanish Costa del Sol. From the personal and artistic point of view, I continue to learn day by day, looking for my way in photography. Anthracite is the most metamorphic mineral coal and has the highest carbon content. Its colour ranges from black to metallic grey depending on how light falls on it. The anthracite project is made up of ordinary people, people around me, friends, acquaintances, colleagues or even I. Sometimes the miracle occurs, a certain lighting can interpret a gesture or a look in a special and different way. The light falls on the face of the portrayed transforming it, getting the person to become at that precise moment a character.
Anup was | The Mara | He born in Nairobi, Kenya. A memorable activity while growing up there was visiting the nearby Nairobi National Park where he spent many hours watching wild animals roaming in their natural environment. The experience became the foundation for a career in wildlife photography. After higher education in England, and three university degrees unrelated to photography, he returned to Kenya and developed his passion for wildlife photography. He received the National Geographic call that most photographers dream of for his first assignment for the magazine in 2003. This was followed by seven more full length stories and having nearly 100 features in every major magazine in the world. By now, Anup had got fascinated by fine art photography and wondered if he could hit the sweet spot between documentary and fine art photography.
Emmanuel Monzon | Urban Sprawl Series | He is a photographer and visual artist based in Seattle, WA. He graduated from the Academy of Beaux-Arts in Paris, France with honors. His work has been featured throughout the US, Europe and Asia (through exhibitions, selections and various awards). Through his work, he explores and questions the signs of urban sprawl in our visual field. His photographic process is being influenced by his background as a plastic artist. There is no judgement in my work, no denunciation, I am in the statement (if critic there is, whether it is political or social, it does not belong to me and I leave it to the audience). This visual environment is my raw material and it is my graphic material. My field work is a country where the landscape is shaped by and for mobility, it forms a sort of generic visual disorder throughout the territory.

Olivier Robert | Hokkaido, The silence of winter | These photographs were shot in Hokkaido where I’ve spent 10 years photographing minimalist landscape sceneries.My project consists in using the esthetic value of the man-made objects that are often considered as insignificant ones. I like the way they pertain to the landscapes. These elements like snow fences, vineyards poles or greenhouses deeply call me to mind for their singular expression in the snowfields and sometimes for their spiritual presence like the gorgeous Torii of Konpira Shrine. The snow fences are typical elements of the landscapes in the snowy regions of Japan. Although these fences seem to have been randomly dropped, they are particularly efficient and have been methodically installed ac- cording to the wind direction. I’ve always been attracted to their presence on the pristine snow and the way they organize the sceneries, playing elegantly with trees like notes on a musical score.

Thomas Phoon | TeaHouse | Thomas got interested in photography equipment before he actually knew what photography was all about, it’s an ironic story: His brother-in-law wanted to upgrade his camera, and since Thomas had friends who owned a camera store, he offered to research the best brands and see if he could get a good deal. The best bargain could arrange was to buy two new DSLR cameras at a discount, and by this fluke came own a new DSLR camera. Thomas first turned his eye towards a variety of subjects: birds, landscape, portraits and travel photography. But his interest sharpened as he started exploring the camera’s ability to make images of things that are not possible to see with the naked eye. He started using more long exposures, experimenting with macro photography, and making long trailing blurs using various panning techniques. In his hunger for more knowledge he would look for documentaries about photography. He discovered one about the documentary photographer James Nachtwey, who said that he tries to reveal the many things happening in our world, which are not necessarily seen by most people. The mission of his life is to go to these people and tell their stories.
Joxe Inazio Kuesta | In the streets of Bangladesh | I am an amateur photographer with a passion for street and documentary photography. I studied economics and business and I work as a civil servant for the Goverment of the Basque Country. Photography has not been my lifelong hobby. In fact, it all started off after some travel experiences. It was back september 2005 that I traveled to the north of India. My photographic gear that time was a compact camera, and when back home I took a look at my pictures I noticed that it was not what I saw: most of the pictures were blurred, and so on. In november that year I went to Syria and it happened all the same. The pictures did not look as what I recalled from those places. That was the main reason why I attended a photography course organized by a non-profit organization called “Sociedad Fotográfica de Gipuzkoa” in Donostia- San Sebastian (Spain). This is where, thanks to its members, I learned the basics of photography. After that, my knowledge grows by reading magazines and books —especially from authors of the Magnum agency—and seeing a lot of photos.
