Emel Karakozak presents the body as a kaleidoscope in her series Budding, she says, “the body is the indicator of human existence.” Karakozak’s photos highlight the beauty of the body as silhouette, host and art.
Don Whitebread’s series Starlight shows us a new night sky, one where the stars we know are always there, but we don’t quite get to see them all of the time, or ever like this, millions of energies streaking in light as the earth moves magnificently in perfect concert.
Jonas Kulikauskas’ candid photos in his series, Yosemite People, bring to life the juxtaposition of what it means to be a tourist site and a home for many of the folks who live in the area. The breathtaking backgrounds underlie the calling Yosemite continues to spellbind the viewer with.
Anthony “Sika” Basquin photographs “Contemporary African Icons.” He says, “I began to see these objects as sacred...I began to grasp how these objects fit within a home, a family, and how they bond with the people surrounding them.” The photographs imbue the objects in a gentle light, allowing the viewer a glimpse into how these objects were, and are, so much more.
William Lawrence crosses historical lines in his series, Dreams In Silver: The Body in Time, he tells us that he used“1860’s era processes for a1920’s style of photography with 21st century women as subjects.” He used professional sitting models and the results are vintage and modern photographs that ask the viewer nothing more than to enjoy the fusion Lawrence has created.
Zsuzsanna Ardo’s series, The Curious Case of the Vanishing Ice Cap, speaks for itself, her photos were taken in motion in the High Arctic where she used a Go Pro. She tells us that, “While working on this series, the vulnerability and shifting state of the Polar scene has been on my mind.” The resulting photographs are a testament to the care and passion Ardo feels for the Arctic.
In Ken L Wheeler’s article, Art & The Artifice, he passionately expounds the most important relationship when it comes to photographing is not the photographer and the camera, but the photographer and the photographer.
