Photographer Interview: Joel Stevenett

•••
  What are your themes in photography and what are you looking for in your exploration? I'm looking for the exotic in the prosaic, how certain discarded objects can be elevated and viewed as artistic studies in colour, texture and composition like 'Water Pipes' or the 'Sleep Patterns' series. I'm drawn to the outcast, whether it be a person, a[...]

A Photographic Journal: Beit Hakerem

•••
The neighborhood's name was based on the verse in Nehemiah 3:14 ''the Dung Gate was repaired by Malkijah son of Rekab, ruler of the district of Beth Hakkerem. He rebuilt it and put its doors with their bolts and bars in place." Beit Hakerem was the first Jewish neighbourhood to be built in south-west Jerusalem and was at the time separated from the rest o[...]

Photographer Interview: Simon Martin

Tell us a little about yourself and your work. I live in a small town called Sittingbourne and work as a freelance photographer. What I'm interested in photographically are people's passions, I like to meet people who enjoy what they do for one reason or another, I think I feed off their interests and it satisfies my need to learn. What drew you to mini go[...]

Photographer Interview: Eric Thompson

•••
When did you start taking photographs and why? I have been actively taking photographs since the early 2000’s, but my first memory of taking a photo that was not a family photo or just messing around was when I was 12. My father and I were on a road trip to visit a few places in Alberta, Canada, and for me partly to buy a minidisc player in Calgary, they [...]

What will family albums look like in the future?

•••
A couple of years ago I found a family album in a drawer of my grandparents’ house. In it were photographs of my mother, my uncle, my grandparents and generations of people I had never met or heard of, dating back to the late 19th Century. Flicking through the pages I began to wonder what our lives would look like to future generations: how would they be vie[...]

Photographer Interview: Ricardo Kump

•••
Firstly, tell us a bit about yourself and what it is you do. I’m a self-taught landscape and documentary photographer from Brazil. I split my time between my motion design and photography career. How did you first get into photography? It came naturally, from travelling and wanting to depict the places I’ve been. But it wasn’t until my thirties that I s[...]

Photographer Interview: Jessica Summers

•••
Firstly, can you briefly describe who you are and what you do. I am a photographic artist, creating images that stimulate the imagination. I use source material collected over many years in a variety of different ways, to create images with and without a camera. You say that you’ve always been interested in collecting curiosities from nature, and [...]

Photographer Interview: Julia Borissova

•••
What are the themes of your artistic work and what inspires you?  What the image will be always depends on the theme which I explore. Listening to myself, I find something that resonates in me, some images, and I start working on their visualisation. Most of all I’m interested in the relationships between photography and time, memory, archive, death, spac[...]

Back to the Base. The Photography of Valerio Platania

•••
In his series, BASE, Platania looks at the connection between people and their environment, focusing on a specific kind of urban space, that of shopping malls and industrial parkways. These non-places reveal in strong colours and prefabricated materials the dissolution of the discreet and of the chaotic potential of public spaces. Trapped in this type of ano[...]

Photographer Interview: Julian Wakeling

•••
What inspires you in photography, what are your themes? I’m inspired by city streets in sunlight: light, colour, form. The best ones are the ones that have the potential to yield the kind of images I like. It would be hard to say which comes first – the immediate appeal of the subject matter or the idea of what sort of image that can be created from it. The[...]

Photographer Interview: Sinziana Velicescu

•••
Firstly, tell us about who you are and what you do. Explain your practice in a nutshell. I am a photographer and filmmaker from Los Angeles California. My photography explores human intervention in nature within landscapes that have undergone political, social, or environmental change. I also direct music videos and make live action content for an arc[...]
