Joan-Ramon Manchado is a sculptor and photographer, based in Barcelona. In 2018 he began photographing people in public spaces of different cities around the world, sometimes including the urban context and other times avoiding it to give maximum prominence to human beings. Although he does not renounce digital photography, he is especially interested in the materiality of the photographic object and in traditional techniques that allow him to experiment in the different phases of the process. Passers-by is the first work that he publishes. It was awarded in the Portfolio Review of the Revela'T Festival 2021 and has been a finalist in the Lens Culture Black and White Photography Awards and in the Fotonostrum Portrait Award. Statement about Passers-by "No one pays heed to the...

"I am an attorney by day and amateur photographer in my free time. Based in Washington, D.C., I focus mainly on black-and-white photography — somewhere between street and documentary with a strong dose of minimalism for good measure. I have a background in philosophy and try to incorporate it into my photography. One of my favorite philosophers, the psychoanalyst Carl Jung, has influenced me deeply. In fact, I view my photography as a Jungian exercise in synchronicity. Using an intuitive approach, I search for images that resonate, for moments of synchronicity in everyday life. Because this approach relies on unconscious triggers, my photographs are often richly symbolic, though their meaning is not immediately clear (at least not to me). For me, this is the essence of...

"I started to be in photography about 15 years ago. At that time I used to model and participate in shootings. But quite quickly I got bored with posing and was becoming more curious to stand on the other side of the camera. So slowly, but certainly I started my own way in the big universe of photography. I have principles in my shootings and always keep in focus my own style. It’s very important for an artist to both keep his/her unique style and progress in it at the same time. When I shoot women I avoid sexualizing them and even photographing naked bodies there’ll be no sexual vision in the image, but sensual and sophisticated." Anna Laza is an influential visual artist working in Art and Fashion photography. Her projects are focused on finding new innovative styles both...

I have always had a fascination with horses which in part stems from my interest in the essential role they played in the development of modern civilizations. At the heart of the relationship between horses and humans is a large paradox. At once a tool in conquests and war because of their tremendous power and capacity for speed, they remain a herd and prey animal. Through photography both inside and outside of the studio, I explore the duality of these flighty yet mighty animals, as well as their relationships with humans, in particular with women whose livelihoods still depend on these animals. My journey with photography started in 2013, after earning my bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University. After this, I completed a short course in Photography at the New York Film...

My name is Amir Appel, living in Israel and doing street photography as a hobby for the last 10 years. An electronic engineer as a profession. Running in the streets, I try to find the contrasts that exists in Israel between the different communities, and if I get a smile out of it, it’s even better. Always have to have at least one person captured (a single person is boring…) and I am trying to capture it in some action. Mostly shooting with flash to add more details to the...

Supreme? Or Sinister? The perfect in photography and its subjects.
It is not hard to admire the idealising designs of Rudolf Koppitz, born 3 January in 1884, but something sinister lurks in his less well known relationship with his wife Anna and the work they did together. What does this history reveal about our current obsession with the digital tools that help us perfect our pictures; are we photographers or painters?
Heinrich Rudolf Zille by James McArdle
Heinrich Rudolf Zille, born 10 January in 1858 in Radenburg near Dresden in Germany, is famous, though unless you live in Berlin, you may not have heard of him. An artist, lithographer, cartoonist and lecturer, his street photography is among early examples but was almost unknown until rediscovered in the 1960s.
Appleby Horse Fair: The Annual Gathering of Gypsies & Travellers in Appleby, England
While living in London from 1989 to 1991, I was thrilled to find out about the Appleby Horse Fair. The Gypsy and Traveller communities in England fascinated me. I knew little about their culture other than they were a unique and historically nomadic people. I hoped that by photographing what was believed to be the largest traditional Gypsy/Traveller event in Europe, I would learn more about their distinct way of life and be able to share it with others.
Street Photography and the New Normal by Betty Manousos
Street Photography in general has changed over the years, we have seen a lot of changes. Recently the most obvious one is the change to daily life from the existing pandemic outbreak. And our ever-changing world, cities, as well as global circumstances are also transforming street photography. I feel every image is a reflection of our era's ever-changing visual culture.
Kirka by Luca Rotondo
At the end of the 20th century, no more than three bears lived in the whole Alps: they were three males that were even too old to reproduce. Since the second half of the nineteenth century the bear has been the victim of a wild hunt aimed at the annihilation of the species from the Alps: under the Austrian government, bounties were imposed on the head of every killed bear.

The Patina Collection by Wendi Schneider
The Patina Collection is an assemblage of gilded prints in the 'States of Grace' series paired with antique frames - the synthesis of 40 years of collecting turn-of-the-twentieth-century art and objects and creating images inspired by my spiritual connection to graceful organic forms. The serpentine shapes are echoed in the subjects I photograph and the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts period frames that complement these works.
Portraits From Omo by Ley Breuel
While in Africa, I became fascinated with the tribes living along the Lower Omo River in Ethiopia going there several times with Steve Turner of Origins. Most of the tribes are pastoral, others are nomads moving with the seasons along the river. Some tribes are in danger of extinction.
