Margaret Durow
Margaret was born in rural Wisconsin, 1989 and began exploring her photographic style from a young age. Therefore, she has developed a unique ability to capture the magic in the landscapes she grew up in. By exploring the transient nature of memory, Durow uses photography as a tool to preserve a feeling. Hence, giving her work an intimate and insightful quality as she documents the world around her.
Fred Stein: Paris - New York
Fred Stein (1909 Dresden - 1967 New York) was a master of the art of street photography. As an early pioneer of the handheld camera, he captured poignant moments in the street life of two of the world's great cities: Paris and New York where he lived after fleeing from Nazi Germany.
The Plain by Melanie Friend
Melanie Friend's photographs reveal the military presence as a disquieting feature on the horizon: a rusty tank positioned as a target, a red box used for field telephones in a copse, smoke from an exploding shell. In the inaccessible ‘Impact Area', a cluster of distant soldiers undertake firing exercises. Red flags warn the visitor to keep out; signage to the military remind them not to drive tanks over Neolithic barrows. Occasionally, Friend has closer encounters with an artillery gun or an armoured vehicle, but often the landscape holds sway; manoeuvres are heard, but not always seen.
Dotan Saguy: Nowhere to go but Everywhere
Award-winning photographer Dotan Saguy first met the Reis family, Mormons from Brazil, the day they arrived in Los Angeles in a converted yellow school bus they call home with their three children ages 10, 5 and 2. They had come to the United States two years prior to chase the American Dream. While they quickly found financial footing in the US and acquired all the material things they wanted, they were still not happy. Inspired by a YouTube video by a Brazilian artist who quit everything to travel and sell his art, they decided to explore an alternative lifestyle that would allow them to spend more time as a family and discover the world together through travel.
Midnight La Frontera by Ken Light
Over thirty years ago between 1983 and 1987 along the California/ Mexico border, Ken Light took his Hasselblad camera and flash and rode along with Border Patrol agents in the middle of the night as they combed the Otay Mesa looking for “illegal aliens.” He was there when the immigrants were apprehended - literally captured by authorities as well as the photographer's flash, evoking an unvarnished Weegee. The black and white images he made are stark, impromptu mug shots in the desert, taken at a moment of extreme vulnerability, when hope gave way to despair.
Jamie Johnson: Growing Up Travelling
American photographer Jamie Johnson has devoted her over 20-year career to photographing children around the world. In 2014 she was invited to Ireland to document the Irish Travellers, a nomadic, ethnic minority that have lived on the margins of mainstream Irish society for centuries. She was introduced to a group of Travellers at the Ballinasloe Horse Fair and Festival, an annual event in County Galway where Travellers from Ireland and Europe come to set up camps, reunite with family and friends, and sell puppies and ponies. The children are left to run footloose and fancy free with dolls, animals, and candy cigarettes. While the Travellers don't usually like outsiders, Johnson's warmth, kindness and show of respect won them over and she was granted full access to photograph their lives and culture.
Post Truth  by George Byrne
George Byrne's visually stunning images of urban Los Angeles' hidden beauty astound in the artist's first monograph, Post Truth
Kicking Sawdust: Running Away with the Circus and Carnival
Clayton Anderson was living the life of a 19 year old, had secured a funky apartment near the water in Miami Beach, was waiting tables and hanging out with friends, when his life took a decidedly atypical turn. The courtyard payphone rang and his father on the other line said he needed to come help the family run their cinnamon roll concession with the travelling carnival. At the insistence of his artist friend Jack Pierson (who contributed the book's introduction), Anderson bought a camera and documented the years he was on the road between 1988 and 1992.
Jon Setter: The Urban Text
Jon Setter makes photographs that attempt to reveal the unseen aspects of urban spaces and architecture. Often working with subjects discovered by chance on unprescribed walks, he documents cities from peculiar viewpoints. Colours, patterns, materials and textures of the urban vernacular are methodically developed into an abstracted expression of space to expand our reading of the cityscape.
