Zay Yar Lin

An internationally published and award winning photographer from Myanmar. I've been into photography since 2014. I've always tried to be creative and shown interesting, beautiful and wonderful things in my photos. Since 2014, I fell in love with photography and started traveling and shooting as much as I can. I’m a seafarer working as a Captain of the ship and I tried my best in the photography during my vacation time.  In other words, I’m trying to become a full-time professional photographer. As a self-taught I achieve all my photography knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. In 2014, I had won first international photography award which became a very good motivation to move further in photography field.

Basically, Lighting, Composition and Color makes a photograph stands out. Apart from them, capturing moments and storytelling makes a photograph more meaningful and powerful. My favorite styles of photography are culture, portraits and landscape which tell stories of the people and sense of the place.

I’ve run photography workshops in Myanmar. I have showcased my works at many exhibitions and been published all around the world. I’ve won numerous international and local photography awards. I’m two times Best Photographer of the Year in Myanmar Photographic Society. In 2016, my photo was published in National Geographic printed Magazine which was published in July. I'm a contributor in National Geographic Your Shot Community. I was a Grand Prize winner of American Photography Open 2018.

My images will take you places you’ve never been, feel the scenery you’ve never seen and meet the people you’ve never known.

Anya Anti

An internationally published and award winning photo artist from Ukraine now based in New York, USA. I've been into photography since 2009. I've always been a creative person – as a child I was good at painting and crafts. As my passion for art grew I fell in love with photography and started shooting the world around me. As a self-taught I gained all my knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. A year-and-a-half later, I started creating fine art surrealistic female portraits, which became my preferable genre and a hallmark of my work.

Installations, costumes and Photoshop manipulation help me to embody my fantasies into a finished piece of art. I shoot mostly with old vintage manual lenses like Helios and Petzval. Their imperfections help me be more creative and achieve that dreamy effect.

As a workshop instructor, I have already taught in different countries. I have showcased my work at exhibitions and been published all around the globe. In 2015 I was a lucky winner of Broncolor GenNEXT sponsorship.

I'm a dreamer. Photography is not only what I love and what I do, it’s also a gentle and romantic side of me. It's a reflection of my deep emotions, passion for unknown and craving for beauty. What I’m trying to show is a beautiful image, but also tell a story, convey an idea and play with associations.

My images are fairytale-like, mystic, feminine, fragile and thoughtful. And if you listen carefully my silent pictures will tell a story.

Jason Gardner

Jason Gardner presents his photographic series “Portraits of Carnaval,” showing the range of artistry of those participating in the festival in Brazil, Louisiana, France, Sardinia, Guinea-Bissau, and Trinidad. Having published the photography book A Flower in the Mouth showing the culture, music and rituals of the authentic, folkloric Carnaval festival in Pernambuco, Brazil, the next book will be about the Carnavals of the world.

In his work, he seeks the ineffable moment when people transform, when they transcend normal lives to connect with what they view as sacred, and embody their culture, heritage, and identity. Democratic and folkloric, it reveals a complexity and diversity of religion and ritual. He looks for the common thread binding those who uphold the tradition as they prepare costumes, rehearse dance and music, and observe their private rituals. For those who practice it year after year, Carnaval is more than a huge party: it is a proud way of life.

Bill Wadman

Bill Wadman is an American portrait photographer living in Brooklyn, New York. His images have been seen on the covers and pages of major publications throughout the world.  His conceptual portrait work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions throughout the US and Canada.  Equally at home connecting with subjects behind the camera and perfecting their image in front of a computer - Bill's technical skills are more than matched by his natural eye for what makes a great photograph. Notoriously obsessive and rarely satisfied; Bill is interested in just about every subject, prefers to paint his own backgrounds, build his own Macs, and perhaps most ironically, does not like getting his picture taken as a general rule of thumb.

Bill is the co-host of the popular photography podcast On Taking Pictures

Erica Genece

The power of a woman is not measured by the impact of her hardships but by her refusal to allow others to dictate who she is and what she will become.

Jeremy Lips

Jeremy’s foray into photography is a result of his lifelong interest in two things, stage lighting and advertising.  It was during college that a light bulb went on and Jeremy combined his two interests into one passion, photography.

Jeremy offers his clients a one-of-a-kind experience during the image making process. His understanding of the ins-and-outs of the design process help him visualize not just the resulting image, but how that image relates to and interacts with the final design concept.

He has often been described as a visual problem solver with a keen eye for color and composition who creates images that exceed expectations and deliver results.

Currently shooting a mix of digital and film. The project dictates the medium. My Polaroid Land camera is a big part of my street kit. It offers a connection digital doesn't. I love to travel, to get immersed in local culture and connect with people.

Lothar Troeller

Children of Fire: 

These Slides have been recovered from the ashes after a devastating house fire on Easter night 2016. They no longer give any information on what was originally captured, but the extreme heat together with water created new beauty.
"Creating art from loss, Lothar Troeller exemplifies a phoenix rising from the ashes."
--Brian Paul Clamp 

Faces  From San Carlos:  Testimonies from victims of the civil war in Colombia

Colombian Resilience - these photographs have been shown at the parliament house of Pereira where the politicians had to walk by them to their assembly hall, and could read, if they even bothered, the testimonies of these family members of victims of the decades long civil war in Colombia.

American Temples:

Between New York City and Lakewood on Route 9 South in New Jersey there are still old fashion diners and fast food temples. They represent both places of gathering and isolation. 
I photographed at night, when the black sky separates the lit or glowing objects from their surrounding environment. The patrons are mostly gone and the spaces remain similar to light sculptures. You might see some late food seekers, but the only movements you notice are the flags in the wind. 
For me these pictures stand for monuments of the American culture.

Olga Torrey

I was born in Russia, in the eastern region of The Ural Mountains, chilled by Siberian air. I came to New York City and immediately fell in love with it. I followed my heart for fine arts and became a “Life Member” of The Art Student League School. Later, I discovered scuba diving and bought my first underwater camera. I never stopped taking photos underwater. I believe that my images of marine life show the wonder of what lies below. I hope my images will inspire people to preserve this beautiful world for future generations. When I'm not diving I explore coexistence of urban wildlife and humans to my available proximity. The outdoors are my artistic studio where I passionately create my images. As a fine artist I have exhibited in NYC in different venues: art galleries, public libraries, banks and coffee shops. As an underwater photographer, I have written and published articles in different scuba magazines, including: InVetrum, X-Ray Magazine, Northeast Dive News, Dive UK and The Ultimate Depth. I give presentations on underwater photography and scuba diving in NYC and around world. I love making photographs and spending a good amount of time on personal projects and accepting assignments where I have the opportunity to travel. To see more of my work visit www.fitimage.nyc

Larry Cohen

As a young child I spent summer weekends at my grandparent’s house on the Delaware Bay in NJ. I would spend hours facedown in the shallow water wearing a mask, snorkel and fins observing the local marine life. I announced to my parents that I wanted to become a scuba diver and underwater photographer. This made my overprotective mother very nervous. She said to my father: ”SCUBA DIVING is dangerous! Please do something to get this crazy idea out of our son’s head." The next day my dad said: “If you want to take photos underwater you need to learn how to take photos above water.” Without hesitation I said: “When do we start?” Now I am a photojournalist that specializes in the underwater environment. My passion is to capture the essence of the exotic and commonplace locations I explore. My photos have been used in textbooks, field guides and publications including Sport Diver, Scuba Diving, Alert Diver, Diver, Immersed, Advanced Diver, Sub Aqua Journal, and Northeast Dive News. I give presentations and photo workshops around the world and I am a founding member of the NY Underwater Photographic Society. When not underwater I spend way too much time at a desk at B&H Photo answering chats and emails. I could be reached at B&H at uw@bhphoto.com. To see more of my work take a look at www.liquidimagesuw.com My gear consist of Olympus OM-D EM1 cameras with both Olympus and Panasonic lenses. Underwater using ultra wide-angle or macro lenses are key to images quality. I use Aquatica housings, Fantasea Line LED lights and Sea & Sea strobes.

Christopher Ang

I am inspired by wildlife, nature as well as visiting different and exciting countries, cultures and experiences.  Capturing the majesty of wildlife, the beauty of nature, or aspects of humanity - peoples, places and cultures has been transformational.

I hope that by sharing the charm and beauty of nature and its species, you'd too be transformed as I've been, to like - better still love - them enough not to harm them.

Alyssa Meadows

 

My most recent project, Every Woman I Know, is a series of portraits depicting every woman I personally know who has been a victim of sexual violence. Everyone who participates is photographed anonymously, and those who elect to have a public portrait done are photographed both ways. This further emphasizes that despite the safety of many voices and the movement of #MeToo, many women still do not feel comfortable coming forward publicly, and this is visibly represented by how many women only participate anonymously. In these exceedingly hostile times, the voices of women need to be echoed more than ever, and our stories need to be heard. By standing together, we can change the perception that this is not a serious or frequent issue and bring attention to how necessary a shift is in our society's values regarding women and our place in it.

Marcia Lloyd

 

I have been photographing a mother, Gwenda, and her two teenage daughters for four years--2011, 2012, 2014, and 2016--once a year, beginning when Rachel, the older sister, was 19 and Natalie, the younger one, was 11 (by 2014, Rachel was no longer a teenager).

I wanted to explore the complex developmental challenges facing all of them at this time: redefining their relationship and reinventing their individual identities as well as the accompanying sense of alienation. The primary questions for Rachel and Natalie are "Who am I apart from my mother, in my new identity as a woman? Where do I belong?" Gwenda is faced with similar questions: "Who am I apart from my children? Who will I be when the nest is empty? With my daughters in their prime and me in in middle age, who am I as a woman?"

Lisa Gizara

Searching for the mysterious in the mundane has inspired me as an artist since the age of 12. Years ago I converted my Canon camera into an infrared camera. Capturing the radiant heat off of  a landscape as opposed to just registering it's physical details, the resulting images are a wonderful discovery, and a visual treasure hunt. I invite you to take a breath and enter these photographs as one enters into a meditation, and enjoy- if only for a moment- the beauty of nature.
