Photographer Interview: Algirdas Bakas

•••
How did you initially decide to move to China to work? What was the process and had you visited before? Before moving to China I worked in a major photography studio in Vilnius for three good years where I learned tricks of the trade but also realised that the commercial work I was doing was not inspiring me. I wanted to explore the planet and do travel p[...]

Photographer Interview: Bärbel Praun

•••
Bärbel Praun is a German photographer who lives everywhere yet nowhere, as she describes herself. Her photography moves between monumental landscapes which question our interactions and attitudes to nature and tourism, and small, intimate details of places and objects, a visual research and constant questioning of the notions of home and memories. How d[...]

Photographer Interview: Marco Fava

Marco Fava's photographs document the human traces left behind on Italy's natural and industrial landscape. Tell us a little about yourself and your work. I live in Piacenza, a small city in north Italy and I work as a freelance architect.

Photographer Interview: Ioana Cîrlig

•••
Ioana Cîrlig is a twenty seven year-old Romanian photographer, whose images document the country's landscape and its people; haunted by the remnants of industrialisation.

Photographer Interview: Candace Karch

•••
How do you think starting shooting in an era of film cameras affected your attitude towards photography? Photography is magic. I began taking photographs at an early age before I even knew that it would become my medium of choice. By the time I was in my teens I knew that the roll of film (that I struggled loading into any camera) would transform the way [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]
