Their work is diverse: documentary, architecture, nudes, still life, abstractions, images ranging from early historical processes like the wet plate collodion tintype to contemporary digital photography.

Our second printed issue of AAP Magazine features the best projects showcasing the theme 'Faces'. Some of the pictures are candid, others made in a studio, others montages. But all record a bit of the human condition as well as display an artistic ambition. They also illustrate a remarkably efficient means of communication transcending most language and cultural barriers. Faces no doubt reflect our inner thoughts and disclose those of our subjects.
