"In 2021, due to the influence of Covid-19, I couldn't go out on the city as I expected, so I had more opportunities to take pictures of rain and flowers. The transitions of nature change my artwork. For example, 4 seasons in Japan, flowers, trees, leaves, light, rain, raindrops, etc…”

“My name is Hiromi Kawano. I was born in Saitama prefecture, near Tokyo, Japan. As a child, I grew up familiar with many flowers and trees. I also had the opportunity to see many beautiful kimonos because my mother was tailoring them. At university, I studied Japanese classical literature and language. Nature, kimonos, and literature continue to have a great influence on my artistic practice. In 1994 I began working on a Power Macintosh 7100 to produce my first digital illustrations. Since 1998 I have worked as a freelance Illustrator and Designer. Apart from my day job, I was looking for a creative way to express my style. In fall of 2015 I realized that multiple exposures in digital photography were exactly what I was looking for. An image is made by superimposing multiple photographs in a complicated manner. I named it Parallel PhotoArt. The artwork is currently published on Instagram and Facebook.”

Egon Gade Artwork

"I see things. It is what I am here for. In a pushbutton world where everything is digital and everyone a photographer, ambience is distinction. We all have different limits and you must sometimes see the edge to find yourself.

Technology should be exploited, but you must know when to stop. It is not a repair kit. I used to love life in the darkroom, but the printer is no lesser match. Although I usually know exactly where I want to go, things can still change before your eyes. I always improvise in the process. An actor’s portrait or a grand studio setup, all I want is for you to see what I see."

Botanical Dreams 2 - Digital Photo, Acrylic glass 60 x 90 cm

Egon Gade works out of Copenhagen for Danish and Scandinavian design companies. International design icons such as Bang & Olufsen, Fritz Hansen, Maersk Sealine, Carlsberg, Georg Jensen, Royal Copenhagen are among some of his clients. Simplicity best describes Egon's pictures. Growing up in a country with famous designers like Arne Jacobsen, Paul Kjærholm and Hans J. Wegner has significantly influenced his work as a photographer.

Egon's career as a commercial photographer began in 1981. At the age of 22, he opened a studio in the centre of Copenhagen where he began specializing as a still life photographer, which was rather unusual in Denmark at that time. His client list grew as he started working for companies including Carlsberg, Royal Copenhagen Porcelain and Georg Jensen Silver. During the 1980s and 90s, he became known in Denmark as 'The Beer Photographer’. Egon has worked on many international campaigns and has won numerous awards in the Clio Show, Cannes Lion, Lurzers Archive, 200 Best Photographers. His fields of expertise include Architecture, Still Life, Portraits, Interior, Landscape.

"I try to capture the feelings of loneliness, isolation and alienation because these strongly resonate with me personally. I shoot in a wider frame as it allows me to use extra horizontal space to evoke emptiness."

Lifeline - Photograph

"My name is Hyun De Grande. I was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1987 and I was adopted to Belgium when I was around 4 months old. I grew up in a small town in West Flanders called Oostkamp together with my parents and my younger brother, who is also adopted.

From age 15 to 19, I studied film and photography at the Art Academy in Bruges, which was my introduction to both artforms. After two more years of studying film directing at the School of Arts in Ghent, I moved to Brussels in 2008 to specialize in Cinematography at the RITCS, where I ultimately graduated.

My street photography emerged from the quiet moments between film jobs as a way to keep training the visual side of my brain. It has quickly become a passion to which I love devoting my energy to whenever I have time. It’s obvious that my cinematography background has heavily influenced my photography style, yet I try to approach it in a different way. For one, my photography work is more personal because I don’t share the creative process with other people, which allows me to explore themes that are closer to myself. I consider it as a deeper expression of who I am as a person."

My mind, a shining guillotine

"At large, my photographic works revolves around fascinating faces and characters. To put it simply, I love photographing people. My projects range from documentaries to fashion portraiture and advertising campaigns to tasteful weddings. But at the core, I enjoy telling stories and portraying the unique flavor each person brings to the world. At times, these stories are simple and endearing, taken during my travels, on fashion assignments while I collaborate with artists of the Indian film industry, or during wedding projects. At other times, they are complex and drive a social message. My photo stories called ‘Avani’, ‘Color of Our Skin’, and ‘The Anxiety Series’ are a testament, exploring grim realities of gender discrimination, racism, and mental illnesses through pictures and prose."

What themes does your work involve?
At large, my photographic works revolves around fascinating faces and characters. To put it simply, I love photographing people. My projects range from documentaries to fashion portraiture and advertising campaigns to tasteful weddings. But at the core, I enjoy telling stories and portraying the unique vibrance each person brings to the world. At times, these stories are simple and endearing, taken during my travels, on fashion assignments while I collaborate with artists of the Indian film industry, or during wedding projects. At other times, they are complex and drive a social message. My photo stories called ‘Avani’, ‘Color of Our Skin’, and ‘The Anxiety Series’ are a testament, exploring grim realities of women subjugation, racism, and mental illnesses through pictures and prose.
Describe your creative process.
It begins as a vivid thought which I translate into a final photograph. I start by listing ideas on paper, after which I research and read to ensure my approach is genuine. I also take the time to understand what about that story is important to me. Then comes the pre-production stage. I etch out the theme and story, which are accompanied by the mood board and storyboard. Then, it is all about blending all elements to craft a picturesque mis-en-scene. For fashion portraiture, it’s the make-up, wardrobe, and the overall setting and colours in my images. For photo stories, I have to build intricate worlds through characters, colours, sets, and props. Finally, after multiple inspections and revisits, when I still find my work aesthetically appealing, that’s when I know it is finished..
What influences your work? What inspires you? Why do you make art?
As an artist, this beautiful world that we live in, full of vibrant colours and stories, is my greatest inspiration. My work is also profoundly influenced by my roots and my connection with them. I like telling stories close to home because relating to them gives me the biggest playground to create. A third factor that plays a part in impacting my work is any kind of imbalance in society. Because then, I wish to talk about it in a way that touches people and passes on a message of hope, love, and empathy. To know that I have created something, that will hopefully become a part of history and be remembered is a humbling and elating thought, and it helps me to keep going at the end of the day.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
I honestly don’t think art can be so simply defined or segmented. Any genuine artist creates from the bottom of their heart and soul, so putting it into any bracket is not ideal for me. As long as artists are creating with their heart and soul, and staying true to the form, it is likely that the art they make will transcend all barriers, and somewhere in the process, become timeless. Even if the work of art ends up impacting a small bunch of consumers, it has done the magic it was made for. And for me, that is the bottom line– if your work inspires, moves, or changes even just a single person in a small way, it is a great piece of art.
What is the role of the artist today?
I believe that the artist’s role today is to recognise that people are consuming more art now than ever before, thanks to the power of the internet. More importantly, as responsible citizens, artists need to be mindful of what they are putting out into the world. Your art should be a relevant and breathing piece, born out of awareness. And when I talk about art in itself, I think every artwork should be a building block, thereby strengthening the world of art in its unique way. There is no stringent rule about what function it should have, but I encourage that your art evokes emotion. Even if you’re making art about something that’s dark and dreary, in the end, it should be a conversation starter or something that is able to stimulate feelings and help awaken one’s emotions from slumber.

"Describir es destruir, sugerir es crear." - Robert Doisneau

"To describe is to destroy, to suggest is to create." - Robert Doisneau

What themes does your work involve?
Mi obra se inspira en escenarios reales de mi entorno más cercano, transformándolos para dotarlos de simbolismo y así representar conceptos abstractos en los que se plasman mis pensamientos, reflexiones, sentimientos, estado de ánimo... La fotografía minimalista me permite reducir una escena a la mínima expresión, centrándome en lo esencial y eliminando lo superfluo.

My work is inspired by real scenes from my closest environment, transforming them to endow them with symbolism and thus represent abstract concepts in which my thoughts, reflections, feelings, state of mind are reflected... Minimalist photography allows me to reduce a scene to the minimum expression, focusing on the essential and eliminating the superfluous.
Describe your creative process.
Observo mi entorno y busco inspiración en la arquitectura, escenas urbanas, naturaleza... Siempre hay algo me atrae (líneas, formas, simetrías, movimiento, contrastes...) e intento capturar el momento desde diferentes ángulos y perspectivas. Posteriormente reviso el trabajo realizado y selecciono la imagen que representa el concepto que quiero transmitir. Para provocar un mayor impacto visual, trato las imágenes en blanco y negro y, utilizando un alto contraste, intento atraer y atrapar la atención del espectador, trasladándole a escenarios únicos, haciéndole cómplice de mis pensamientos y sentimientos y envolviéndole en una atmósfera que viaja desde lo figurativo hacia lo abstracto. Considero que mi trabajo está terminado cuando al observar la imagen no veo la escena, veo el concepto.

I observe my surroundings and look for inspiration in architecture, urban scenes, nature... There is always something that attracts me (lines, shapes, symmetries, movement, contrasts...) and I try to capture the moment from different angles and perspectives. Later I review the work done and select the image that represents the concept I want to convey. To cause a greater visual impact, I treat the images in black and white and, using high contrast, I try to attract and catch the viewer's attention, transporting them to unique settings, making them accomplices of my thoughts and feelings and enveloping them in an atmosphere that travels from the figurative to the abstract. I consider my work finished when looking at the image I don't see the scene, I see the concept.
What influences your work? What inspires you? Why do you make art?
Me inspira el análisis de la condición humana, de las emociones, el sentido de la vida... Con mi obra intento aportar una visión personal de estas inquietudes que me permita expresar mi experiencia subjetiva.

I am inspired by the analysis of the human condition, emotions, the meaning of life... With my work I try to provide a personal vision of these concerns that allows me to express my subjective experience.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
Su originalidad, su impacto y su capacidad para trasmitir un mensaje.

Its originality, its impact and its ability to convey a message.
What is the role of the artist today?
Actualmente vivimos en una sociedad visualmente saturada pero conceptualmente vacía. De ahí, que el papel del artista sea despertar la curiosidad del espectador y hacerle reflexionar.

We currently live in a visually saturated but conceptually empty society. Hence, the role of the artist is to arouse the viewer's curiosity and make them reflect.

"My photography is often spontaneous, unplanned, and serendipitous. I don't follow the pattern of traditional landscape and nature photographers who pre-plan their images; my style is more instinctive with an element of 'let's just go and see what happens!"

Autumn Serenity - Digital Photograph

"I began my journey into photography almost by accident when my husband bought me a 35-mm film camera for our anniversary many years ago. I'm mainly self-taught, with some mentoring and workshops along the way. I’m from a family of talented artists, musicians and writers, but somehow could never make my brain and fingers work together for any of those skills. The camera allows me to make art in a way I’d never been able to accomplish before. It frees me to be creative while not having to force the process. It gives me a view into the world that is sometimes impressionistic, sometimes real. It allows me to “see” something, then take it home and bring out either the original vision or something entirely new in post-processing. I don't call myself a nature photographer – my tastes are more eclectic and wide-ranging – but most of my imagery is taken outdoors.

My photography is often spontaneous, unpremeditated, and serendipitous. I’ll "see" an image, quickly set up for the capture, press the shutter, then look again to see how I can improve, take additional images from the more thoughtful perspective, and then go home and cull out all the later images while keeping only the one or two I first "saw." I have numerous images where the composition, colors and forms seem almost instinctive; there are others where the work in post-processing was the inspiration for the end result.

I currently live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the foot of Pikes Peak in the American Rocky Mountains, and close to a variety of contrasting landscapes – from the “14ers” (mountains higher than 14,000 feet) to the plains, from mountains to desert, from high country to rolling hills, from thick forests to shortgrass prairie lands. My husband and I frequently explore these areas, and they’ve provided many of my favorite images."

"The images I capture reveal my dreams, my fairy tale; that irrational language that feeds my spirit; an illusory encounter with myself, where I revisit my childhood, and where ordinary experiences become poetry. In stillness, I have found life to be a succession of vanishing, ephemeral moments."

Untitled - Polaroid Emulsion lift. Polaroid 600 film

Isabel Herrera is a contemporary instant photographer and artist who lives and works in Guatemala City. Herrera’s works portray serenity and nostalgia and that which is also ephemeral, vaporous and impermanent.

From a deep state of quiescence, Herrera has come to understand that life is a succession of vanishing and fragile moments. While trying to remain in the now, detached from all things banal, she has found her own way, searching to preserve fragments of time. Instant photography has enabled her to mindfully cherish these moments in complete stillness, in presence. It is how she finds contentment. The Polaroid SX70 and its experimental possibilities have allowed her to capture these fragile and evanescent instants always through shades and veils of haze. Herrera has found a muse and inspiration in nature, and her deep connection to it is reflected in her images. The Polaroid emulsion lifting technique she continuously works with is the way she can convey vulnerability, sensitivity and fragility of life. From the moment each emulsion is attached to organic cotton paper, it acquires its own unique form and personality. The wrinkles, folds and tears form an allegory of the human experience and existence; scars, grief, pain. These apparent imperfections simultaneously assure strength, hope and resilience; a sense of gratitude of being here and now.

Isabel Herrera has showcased works at Guatemala’s Sol del Rio Contemporary Art Gallery, Juannio’s annual Contemporary Latin American Art Auction, and internationally acclaimed Instant Photography Festivals in Germany, France, Italy and the UK. She was also invited to be a guest speaker and exposer at the First International Experimental Photography Festival in Barcelona Spain in January 2020, and a guest judge to Guatemala’s Universidad Francisco Marroquín Design Week 2020.

"After dedicating my life to describing in data the different scales of cartographic perception of the world, I now photograph its landscapes. As I described the earth on small and large scales, I now photograph grand vistas and intimate scenes. As I mapped immaterial as well as material phenomena, I photograph both fuzzy and precise subjects. As I mapped evolving and static phenomena, I see a temporality in everything I look at. Trees and rock particularly inspire me, because in my imagination, they symbolize two significant temporal scales, namely the duration of a life and eternity."

"After dedicating my life to describing in data the different scales of cartographic perception of the world, I now photograph its landscapes. As I described the earth on small and large scales, I now photograph grand vistas and intimate scenes. As I mapped immaterial as well as material phenomena, I photograph both fuzzy and precise subjects. As I mapped evolving and static phenomena, I see a temporality in everything I look at. Trees and rock particularly inspire me, because in my imagination, they symbolize two significant temporal scales, namely the duration of a life and eternity.

I express myself through photography because it combines art and technology, sensitivity and intellect, solitary creation and sharing. Nature is what best allows me to feel my own essence as a man of territory. It gives me indescribable well-being that I can only convey through the image, seeking to bring out the beauties that often go unnoticed. Through this visual poetry, I want to make people aware of nature and the need to protect it, while offering them a respite in this era of eco-anxiety.

My photographs are intentionally subjective. Aesthetics, emotion, and imagination take precedence over documentary reproduction. I observe slowly to detect the visual variables responsible for my sensations and that build my vision. I highlight what I feel or that my imagination perceives by composing with nature, but without metamorphosing it. Like the luminist painters of the nineteenth century, I seek realism in the shades of light and atmosphere. In doing so, I recognize myself in the neo-pictorialist movement that uses the power of photography to create paintings. This influences each of my steps, even when I transform in my studio the pixels of my photographs into pigments on canvas and fine art papers carefully chosen.

Finally, I sometimes free my imagination further and anthropomorphize subjects or visualize life where there is none, which gives me a certain exaltation."


"I have been practicing landscape photography since I was a teenager when I bought my first 35mm camera. Despite my forays into drawing, watercolor and sculpture, photography has always inspired me. In 2003, I moved to digital photography, and it became a real passion.

Self-taught, I have perfected my skills with some of the best photographers and artists thanks to several courses and workshops in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

My love of nature comes from the fact that I grew up and lived in a village surrounded by mountains, lakes and rivers. I have surveyed several regions of Quebec and explored several others around the world. In 2014, my artistic passion dominated my scientific passion, I decided to devote myself professionally to photography.

A permanent artist in art galleries since 2014, I participate in several solo and group exhibitions in Quebec and beyond (United States, Australia, India). My photographs are regularly published internationally. My works are part of private collections in nearly twenty countries. I photographed on all five continents.

Loving the texture of fine art paper and wanting to realize each step leading to the final product, as of 2009, I used my previous knowledge to develop my ability to make my own fine art prints.

Having pursued my previous career as a professor, author and speaker, I have been spreading my photographic passion for several years through courses, workshops, conferences and juries.

In addition to having designed unique products for corporate gifts, I sell digital licenses for books, magazines, newspapers, websites, calendars, greeting cards, advertisements, apps, etc.

Before devoting myself full-time to photography, I was a university professor-researcher in geomatics engineering (geolocated data science). I trained hundreds of land surveyors, geomatics engineers, and students at the M.Sc. and Ph.D levels. I specialized in the design and development of map databases, such as those used in our road navigation systems. My challenge was to ensure cartographic representations of the territory with the best possible fidelity. This period directly influenced the way I describe the world and photograph.

I have authored or co-authored with my students, colleagues, and research assistants more than 600 papers presented in thirty countries, including 176 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Cited more than 4100 times, my pioneering work in geospatial data engineering is widely recognized. This also is the case with my managerial capabilities, both as a government advisor and as a co-founder of a research Centre and a private company. My multidisciplinary approach, based on real-life tests in industry, has opened the door to prestigious awards in Canada and the United States in different fields: surveying/mapping, engineering, computer science, geography, teaching, entrepreneurship, and scientific writing. Registered on the boards of the OAGQ and the OIQ during my professional life, I hold the prestigious titles of Professor Emeritus of Laval University, Distinguished Engineer in the United States (University of Maine), and Honorary Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.

Sensitive to nature and the future of our planet, I volunteer to the Provancher Society, an organization dedicated to environmental protection and education. I also did a solo exhibition on this theme, and one of my photographs was chosen by the British High Commission of Canada for the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26 (Glasgow, UK, 2021)."

Ute Eiselt

"My art focuses on the relationship between humans and nature - between humans and the world that surrounds them. My photographic art develops the hidden. The play with light and shadow, sharpness and blurriness, leads to an alternation of tension and harmony. The special cut confuses the viewer."

Sleeping Duck - Macro photograph

Based in South Germany, Ute Eiselt specializes in macro photography. Ute has been surrounded by art since early childhood and her photographic work is strongly influenced by her father's jewelry drawings. The richness of detail in these drawings, the effect of color and perspective fascinated her and gave her inspiration. She also found inspiration in the work of her uncle, a restorer, and art collector.

The art of Ute Eiselt can be described as a combination of figurative and abstract and some works look more like watercolor painting than macro photography. With her photographs, she explores the complexity of perception. Most of Eiselt's works are created in her immediate surroundings, many in her own garden.

Since 2013 Eiselt's works have been continuously represented in solo and group exhibitions at the national and international level. Since 2014 she has been a member of the Bund Professioneller Deutscher Künstler (BBK).

Eiselt's works have been published and exhibited in the USA, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Japan and Germany. They have also been published in art catalogs and magazines in Europe and the USA.
