Brandon Jordan is that new breed of documentary photographer in the vein of CobraSnake, Germinal Roaux and Kareem Black who shoot their gratuitous lifestyle for all of us to share in... and I for one am grateful. How else would I know what was cool??? We get to live vicariously through these boys and boy do they make it look fun. It's enough to make you long for your youth, which is saying something. All that aside, Brandon's work is not just gratuitous, it's relevant and interesting. He's curious and obviously enjoys capturing everything that crosses his path. I love his pallette and his style. I hope he keeps it up and we get to see what happens next.Personal website: http://brandonjordanpics.tumblr.com/
Born in 1986 in Bremen, Germany. Anna is a freelance photographer that lives and works between New York and Moscow. She graduated with a B.F.A in Photography from Parsons School of Design in 2008 where she studies partly in Paris and New York.
Anna's documentary of Russian life is somehow uplifting and celebritory rather than the usual grim portrayal. Each one of her portraits is more powerful than the next and the cumulitive effect is of a sympathetic admirer who respects her subjects and only wishes to record their strength of character. Refreshing and moving work.

British photographer resident in LA. Her left-of-centre childrens portraits are intimate and powerful, pitting the child as both object to be admired and studied specimen, whilst avoiding all the cliches of typical youth portraiture. Lesley shoots fashion portraiture for the adult market as well.
A Swedish photographer and journalist based in stockholm, Jessica was born 1982 in Sundsvall. Her romantic portraits are both intimate and isolated and leave the viewer with a clear sense that they were the voyeur of some romantic moment. Her beautiful girls all have an ethereal, 'Sofia Coppola' feel to them and I really enjoy her reluctance to give you eye contact with any of her subjects, it's a subtle, but sexy result.

I am essentially a landscape painter. When I started making images I was painting outside with my easel in the middle of the night, trying to capture the darkness in oil-painting. I explore(d) my urban environment by foot or by bike, carefully mapping my battleground. From day one it was all about capturing places that had an atmospherical charge to it.
Through a shit-storm of soul-searching and surrealist detours in painting, photography has brought me back to the essence of my love for image making: portraying fragments of (urban) reality, attempting to construct images strong enough to carry the mood I wish to create. I can’t restrict myself to one particular concept, although the vowels and consonants of the landscape’s alphabet dictate my phrases.
Moving from Belgium to Australia has made me into a photographer (painter) in exile. As a permanent tourist, an alien, I capture things on this side of the world. I seek refuge in my images, trying to create a sense of belonging for myself.
I live and work in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
