Czech Republic
Jiří Šneider was born in 1979 and bred in Český Krumlov where my home is. Photography started to fascinate me around the year 1997. I have always been attracted by black & white photography, hence this constitutes of two thirds of my work. I've focused on portrait and travellers documentary. Recently I have developed more thanks to travelling (Ukraine, Bangladesh, Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, Japan...). These destinations brought up many topics and situations of people at home, at work, going out, in streets, at religious rituals...

I am Osama aka Gennie-in-a-Click and I don't know how the Universe has conspired for me to be a photographer, but I am loving it. There have been so many synchronicities which led me to the path I have taken. Slowly but surely, I have discovered my niche, and discovered that I love being a fine art photographer. I love people and, through my art, I like to discover and capture different portrays and facets of human nature. I have always been fascinated by the deep connection between humans and nature. As humans we associate images, taste, smell, sound with our emotions. As an artist I associate my art with my emotions at the time I took the photograph. Just by looking at a photograph that I have created I am taken back to the moment in time when it was shot. I can feel the smell, I can feel the light, I can feel the emotions I had that time, I can feel the wind, I cand hear the sounds around me. It is astonishing to be trans boarded in a second. I hope by giving background to the viewer about the way the photographs were shot, to help them feel the emotions that are associated with each piece of art.

As a small child I was already overwhelmed by the beauty we find in the world, whether it was the warm colours of the setting sun on the reed I could see from my window, or the sun throwing Jacob’s ladders from the sky as it burst through the clouds. I’ve always felt there is something painful about beauty that appears and then passes without being able to hold onto it or to share it with others. I must have been about six or seven years old when I first attempted at capturing this beauty photographically and I haven’t stopped since. For many years I had been photographing the streets of Paris and Istanbul, inspired by the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Until I wanted to do make a triptych featuring a female nude in a war-torn landscape. It introduced me into the world of art nude photography which I haven’t left since, combining the beauty of the female form with that of land- and cityscapes. Recently I have started experimenting with mixed media, but the desire to capture beauty that passes with time still underpins my primary motivation to photograph.

Trinidad and Tobaggo
My name is Sascha Ali and I'm a Trinidadian born photographer currently living and working in New York City. I majored in Film Studies at Kingston University in London, and it was during this period that I developed a fondness for photography. When I returned to Trinidad I worked for various news outlets and government companies as a video editor and photographer. I tried my hand at producing and editing several short and feature length films before deciding that life didn't appeal to me. It was around this time in 2018 that I moved to New York City, where I immediately fell in love with street and documentary photography. I was particularly attracted to Harry Gruyaert's color work. I committed to the art, and in 2022 I did a workshop with Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb that helped me to focus more seriously on the direction I wanted to take my photography in. My most recent photos focusing on the community of Jackson Heights have become my first major photography project. I've also begun work on a long term documentary project based in Trinidad and Tobago. I currently supplement my street work with freelance jobs for the United Nations.
