Pablo Guillamon

"My painting transmits the poetry of everyday life through shapes and colors."

PASADO-PERDIDO 4 - Digital media 90 x 60 cm

Spanish artist Pablo Guillamon has exhibited in various establishments and cities including Lorca, Granada, Madrid, Murcia, Paris, Miami, Huesca, Barcelona, Zurich, etc.

In 2021 Pablo Guillamon was a semi-finalist at the ARTBOX.PROJECT World 1.0. Zurich, Switzerland and in 2019, a finalist in the National Painting Prize "Art without Barriers", Albacete, Spain.

For Pablo, his works are an expression of his deepest feelings on everyday life. In his realistic work, he tries to find the poetry of shapes and colors that configure our real world. In his abstract works, the strokes of light and color move the observer to a warm and cold place at the same time. Hot in the feelings, cold in the observation.

In his own words: "An image is the past of everything that has been during the time elapsed in its composition. Colors create different and harmonious visions that can not always be seen.

These works represent this eternal and continuous contradiction."

Isabel Herrera

"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."

Music - Polaroid photograph composition Ea 3.5 x 4.2 in.

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.

Ellen Mitchell

"I’m most comfortable as a quiet observer. I let things happen in front of me, and press the shutter release. Most of my work is dependent upon chance, resulting in offbeat photos in which the content and composition are ultimately unpredictable. I like to be surprised when I see the images later on."


Untitled, from 'Benches of Seaside Heights, NJ Series - Digital photograph

Ellen Mitchell is an American photographer based at the New Jersey shore, where she grew up and currently resides. Her photos document the people, places, and dramatic situations she encounters during her daily life, revealing a humorous yet melancholic side of human behavior. Her work has been exhibited in Italy, Atlanta, and Minneapolis, and has been published in The Guardian, Lens Magazine, American Illustration - American Photography (AI-AP), and A Photo Editor. She has received awards from Lensculture, the New York Center for Photographic Art, and Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP).

Susan Platt

"I am a faded jeans and baggy shirt kind of gal. I prefer casual over formal-my hiking boots over heels. I love to stalk the light. I have been a photographer for 39 years. I owned a portrait and wedding studio and now my focus is wildlife, nature, abstract, and documentary photography."

Wild Mama - Digital photograph 24 x 20 in.

Be prepared to be inspired, delighted and visually stimulated by images that speak to the heart and the mind. Susan Platt is a fine art photographer that captures the world as only she sees it.

Manuel Morquecho

"My art captures my own realities—the world as I feel it or imagine it. I have chosen Photography as my art-instrument because it allows me to grasp these “realities” in an instant, without the distortions caused by the passage of time and changing feelings."

Loved Ones

Photography has always been Manuel’s passion. He had to earn a living from a young age. Originally from Mexico, Manuel started to study digital photography in 2009 in Guatemala City, graduating in 2014 from Boston University’s Center for Digital Imaging Arts in Washington D.C. where he currently resides. His main body of work focuses on exploring the urban landscape, the integration of the face and body into fine art, and fashion photography. In Washington, Manuel joined in 2013 the International Photographic Society (IPS) and was rookie of the year in the 2013-14 season and Photographer of the Year in 2015-16. Morquecho was awarded the 2016-2017 and 2017-18 Washington DC Government Art & Humanities Fellowship.

Manuel Morquecho has done several solo and group exhibits in Atlanta, Guatemala City, Miami, Washington DC, New York City, London and Italy’s 2018 Chianciano Art Biennale where he won the Leonardo 1st Prize for Photography and Digital Art. In 2019, he was awarded the 2nd Prize in Photography at IPS, and at London Art Biennale, and the 3rd Prize Focus on the Story at Washington DC International Photo Festival. In 2020, Manuel was a winner of LensCulture Critics’ Choice. Several of his images have been published in renowned art books and magazines and are owned by the Public Art Program, the Chianciano Art Museum in Italy, and private art collectors around the world.

Tori Gagne

"The horse is a highly sensitive intuitive creature. My experiences with wild and domestic horses have had a longterm grip on my photography practice. I spend a good deal of my time photographing wild horses in the western states in order to advocate to keep their lives free on our public lands."

Isadore Cruce - Photography on dye sub aluminum 16 x 24 in.

Tori Gagne was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota; she earned a BFA in Fine Art Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her love of photography began in grade school, working with a pinhole camera and developing film in the darkroom in her family home. She was deeply influenced by her mother and brother who were both professional photographers. 

Tori has a retired off-the-track thoroughbred who has led her deeper into the magical world of the horse, leading her to devote much of her work to photographing equine subjects. She has a special affinity for wild horse photography and is happiest on a dirt road in the western states seeking herds of wild horses to photograph, advocating for them through her work. Gagne's equine images celebrate the magical world of the horse. 

"There is something very special and spiritual about standing in the high desert in complete silence, experiencing the vast US western lands, the land of our beloved wild horses who are under threat from multiple pressures on US public lands."

Tori has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. She has received International awards for her work and has work in private collections nationally and internationally. She currently resides in her hometown of Orono, MN. 10% of proceeds from selling her equine work is donated to organizations involved in the protection and education about the plight of the wild horse population in the western US.

"For me, photographing dance is a way of giving artistic expression to my longing for movement. Whether longing, love, fear, despair, anger - everything that is expressed in the respective stage events, is how I feel. The photo speaks to me and I hope to the viewer too."

Amazing - Photo print on Aludibond 60 x 40 cm

From Germany and living in Berlin, Kornelia Boje is theater, radio, tv, film and dubbing actress and since 1980 she has worked as a photographer and author.

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.

Carmela Rizzuti

"For me, photography is a different way of painting where light is like a brush that allows me to create and shape my photos having total control of creation. My images are intended to be like dreams for the viewer, or a different way of seeing reality."

Poppies Birth - Print on Fine Art Hahnemühle paper 70 x 100 cm

Carmela Rizzuti is a multidisciplinary artist. She was born with a predisposition for drawing and painting, and over the years, during training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo, she also embraced her passion for photography by enrolling in the Photo Conca d'Oro Club, managed by the master photographer Giuseppe Cilia. 

Two disciplines that may appear distinct and separate, but in the end, there is always overlapping search for visual effects between painting and photography. 

In painting, Carmela Rizzuti employs photographic techniques and mechanical reproduction of reality. She builds her hyper-realistic portraits by depicting people's everyday life attitudes, made up with a brush and oil colors on smooth supports such as plexiglass. Her aim is to obtain the effect of the card as closely as possible.

Her works have received excellent response in the art world and they are exhibited in various galleries in Italy and abroad, including the Am Roten Hof Gallery in Vienna and at the Palazzo della Permanente in Milan with publication in the magazine Arte by Giorgio Mondadori. Despite the various successes and awards, the artist does not see a good economic response, so she decided to devote herself entirely to photography. 

Her photographic works belong in two wide categories, black and white and color images. Her black and white works are about the exaltation of the image from lights and shadows, while her color series explore the fundamental role of color in giving almost a pictorial and artistic rendering. In her color photography, the artist uses a self-timer to capture the images. She does the scenography and visual composition herself. A recurrent theme is the relationship between nature and art.

With these photographic works, Carmela Rizzuti has participated in several biennials in Italy and abroad.

Michael Ian Goulding

"My work celebrates the beauty of the female form and spirit. While my aesthetic sense springs from wonder at the variety and mystery of the body's physical reality, my photographs are primarily aimed at recording the beauty of the female form from an abstract point of view."

Amy XVII - Film Capture, 14 x 11 in. $300 (matted, unframed)

“I have been engaged in art for nearly my entire life.  I have worked in a variety of media and focused on a number of subjects, all with the purpose of creating something beautiful.  Ultimately that journey led me to focus on the beauty of the female form as viewed through black and white photography.”

To me, the creation and sharing of art is fulfilling when it brings joy to others.  I recall the first time that I exhibited my photography, a woman came up to me, referring to Stephanie I and said, "I enjoyed all of your works, but this one, this one is poetry."  But perhaps my greatest fulfillment comes from working with those who model for me.  While holding the newly matted and framed Carmen V, which was the payment Carmen elected to receive for modeling for me, she said, "I never knew how beautiful I was until I saw myself in your photographs."

I think the world would be a better place if we all focused more of our attention on creating and appreciating beauty.  Although I greatly enjoy exhibiting my artwork, over the last few years I have focused my attention on publishing my artwork in order to reach a wider audience with whom to share it.  I thank Circle Foundation for the Arts for providing that opportunity.

My studio is located in the United States, in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area.  I have exhibited my artwork in venues across North America, Europe and Asia. I have received multiple awards and my artwork has been published in numerous publications on art or featuring art photography. My work has also been licensed for use by musical artists for compact disc covers and related promotional materials."
