Photographer Interview: Jordanna Kalman

•••
Tell us a bit about yourself and your work. I live in upstate NY with my husband and two young girls. I consider my work to be diaristic but not so much in a literal way; I take photos and then look back and try to make sense of them. Sometimes I'll have an idea while I'm shooting but too much direction in creating a series has never worked for me. I like [...]

A Photographic Journal: Hitchhiking Europe

•••
I became lost trying to define myself as a photographer as my priorities changed resulting in a shift from fashion-photography I had been dedicatedly pursuing prior. In February 2013 I was sat in the passenger seat of a car in Lithuania when I discovered an image of soviet architecture through the car windscreen. Two months later I was stood at the side of[...]

Looking for Wonderland: American Observations

•••
This beautiful series is made all the more enjoyable in the form a 124 page book Looking for Wonderland. Books are without a doubt one of the most satisfying ways of observing photographic work, arguably beaten only by framed archival prints. Scrutinising images on a computer screen is a far reach from the joys of touching the images in a well-produced pho[...]

Photographer Interview: Francesca Beltran

What’s your story?  Describe your practise in a nutshell. In a nutshell, I have always been obsessed with music and traveling, and my work is the result of my attempt to incorporate these two passions into my professional life. Photography has always been my way to capture the world around me and to express myself creatively but it took me a while to look a[...]

Organ Vida: A Croatian Photography Festival

•••
For the past seven years the festival has been organized by the non-profit and NGO photography association Organ Vida which consists of a creative team of young professionals and freelancers. Their aim is to promote Croatian and international emerging and established photographers, to reflect on the medium of photography in a wider societal context through p[...]

Photographer Interview: Brett Henrikson

•••
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and what it is you do. ​ I’m an Artist-Photographer - artist being the most important part. Photographic processes are my hammer and chisel, as I approach the world and use visual language to understand and reinterpret being. My bodies of work vary from work about intersection of life and death, classical portraiture [...]

A Photographic Journal: Tainan

•••
During my time in Taiwan I spent as much time as possible exploring with my Hasselblad. It was the first time I had taken my camera out properly since quitting fashion photography and it gave me a reason to truley explore this new, bizarre country, more thoroughly than I would have done otherwise. A lot of these images were taken during Taoist rituals and c[...]

Photography Interview: Jonathan Salmon

•••
How did you discover your interest in landscape and documentary work? Photography can convey a huge array of subject matters, and it is this that attracts so many people to it as a practice to interact and analyse the world. Whilst making great images, photographers can pursue many other facets of life through the medium. Tim Hetherington was a humanitari[...]

A Photographic Journal: An American Roadtrip

•••
"Our road trip started in Banning, CA where we chased cars down the freeway to Las Vegas, NV and watched the sun rise from our hotel balcony after a trippy night in “the city of sin”. We all wore matching Hawaiian shirts and I won eighty bucks from a dollar in a slot machine. From Vegas we drove through the Hoover Dam to the Grand Canyon, AZ and stayed in t[...]

Photographer Interview: Feiyi Wen

•••
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and what it is you do. I'm currently finishing my MA programme in photography at Royal College of Art. Before I l moved to London, I was studying in a film academy in Beijing, where I was born. How did you first get into photography? I was suffering from a very deep depression when I was in secondary school, during wh[...]

Photographer Interview: Clara Wildberger

•••
Why do you make art and how did you get into photography? What's your story? Photography has always played a prominent role in my life for as long as I can remember. I got my first own analogue compact camera to play around with at the age of five because photography is my grandfather’s and my father’s hobby. My father documents our family events, the dai[...]

Photographer Interview: William Lakin

•••
Your work is a mixture of different styles. How do you define your work in a nutshell? Documentary, with a lot of artistic license. What is your working process; how do you develop your ideas? With Florida Club I just kept shooting and constantly making edits to see what was working so it just came about from trial and error really. With the pro[...]
