FOTO ARTE Haydee Yordan

"As an art photographer, I am committed to developing a new photographic language that responds more to my imagination than to what I see with my eyes. I am convinced that photographers should go beyond the usual and be imaginative and creative. No doubt, the photo medium opens its way to art."

Reflections - Digital media 11 x 11 in.

Born and educated in Puerto Rico, Haydee Yordan has traveled extensively and experienced different cultures. Her work has been exhibited in four international photography Biennials, in several art galleries, published in magazines and belongs to private collections.  Yordan has received awards and recognitions by notable institions like the IPA, WPGA and Gala Awards.

"In 2015 I published a controversial photo-book on gender, titled "Borrando Generos" or "Erasing Gender" where I use the camera to creatively photograph the "future" to support my artistic hypothesis about the evolution of a new gender, time and space no one has yet seen. My rebellious and daring personality is evident in my photography."

"With my macro photography, I expose small aspects of our surroundings on large scale to express and emphasize the fullness and beauty around us that we so easily miss."

Upwards, Alu-Dibond 90 x 60 cm

"With my macro photography, I expose small aspects of our surroundings on large scale to express and emphasize the fullness and beauty around us that we so easily miss. Clearness and haziness cause a charisma of both peace and dynamics. Combined with the vitality of color I want my artworks to raise awareness of art being everywhere already. We just need to have the eyes to see it. Working without a tripod and usually not implementing photo-editing computer programs I try to capture my unadulterated perception on camera. This veracity enables the viewer to act out his or her own imagination and offers freedom for personal associations.  All my photographs are sold in limited editions and I also do photographic works for business websites."

Jason Levi

"I am a Fine Art Photographer. Many confuse this with photography artwork. It is not. Fine Art Photography is using photography as an expression of art. This allows for the liberal interpretation of the subject, whether it's landscape or portraiture. It's Art, not picture taking."

"Being a photographer for me is a kind of creation. Every object exists out there for a long time but my goal is to bring the beauty, power, and something that "on the way" you were never going to see - what I call - "To create narrative Beyond the lens"."

"With my work, I have tried not only to pay respect to the natural order and beauty of the earth but also to show others this beauty through my vision and art."

Cloud Light- Photograph 22 x 14.75 in.

"Seascapes, landscapes, and the world around me is the studio I use for my photographic work. I find freedom, and inspiration to create my interpretations of the natural elements and scenic vistas that come to my view at these locations.

The Landscape is an exciting and challenging environment to work in, for it is constantly changing with the light of the day and the changing seasons. On many occasions, I have revisited my favorite locations repeatedly throughout the year and found them to be completely different in their appearance, from the sand on the beach, the depth of water in the streams, or the light striking the rocks. This environment and the many faces it reveals, bring me endless excitement, for creating my art.

Sea Rays- Photograph 14.75 x 22 in.
Standing Watch- Photograph 14.75 x 22 in.
After Sunset- Photograph 14.75 x 22 in.

I work exclusively in black and white. This medium best relates to the shapes, lines, and tones of the landscape and more fully captures what I am viewing when I look at a scene. Color imagery for me is too close to reality and more of a visual record, than an artistic interpretation. I understand that the world is in color, and we see in color, but I find the magic of light on the sea and land to best be conveyed in black and white.

My photographic images have been recognized by exhibitions in many galleries, published in Lenswork magazine, Outdoor Photographer magazine and Digital Photographer UK magazine among others. Having won numerous awards including Best of Show for two years at the Sacramento Fine Art Center, accepted into the California State Fair Fine Art Show and received awards 7 years annually in Black and White magazine.  My Most recent achievement was the publication of my book, “Digital Black and White Landscape Photography, Fine Art Techniques from Camera to Print” by Amherst Media. I am also the author of three self-published books: Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sierra Mountain Wilderness and Redwood Coast: Sea and Land. "

Dennis Casey Photography

"I have been an outdoor adventurer for almost half a century, and I have always had a passion for being alone in nature. My goal as a photographer is to produce images that allow other people to actually feel these experiences and to give them the feeling of what it is like to be alone in nature."

Oasis Water - Digital photograph Canon 6D 24 x 36 in.

Dennis Casey captures the magic of nature’s solitude. Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, his photography focuses on the splendor of mountains, deserts and oceans of the American West and Southwest. His distinctive style conveys the feeling of what it is like to be alone in nature.

A native of San Diego, CA, Dennis retired as an educator in 2013 and moved to Texas to become a landscape photographer. He continues to teach business at Weatherford College, and when he isn’t teaching, he spends his time searching for remote places of beauty from Canada down to South America.

Dennis has spent his entire life traveling the world as a surfer, climber and backpacker immersing himself in the beauty of both land and sea. These experiences come to life in his images. As for the theme of his photography, the artist states, “My goal is to produce images that allow other people to actually feel my outdoor experiences, and to give them the feeling of being alone in nature.”

Dennis’ artwork has been shown in exhibitions and art shows around the country, such as Art Expo New York, Art Santa Fe, Art San Diego, Amsterdam Gallery and Las Lagunas Gallery.

Captured in natural lighting, Dennis’ photographs provide a distinctive and fresh perspective on well-known American landscapes. His images demonstrate an alert eye capable of framing unique compositions which successfully communicate to the viewer that revered feeling of being alone in and with nature.

Moving Elephant by Mark

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich-based photographer and a represented artist of Agora Art Gallery, New York City. For Mark, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision.

Tout De Suite, Madame ! (2/4)

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich based photographer and represented artist of Agora Art Gallery, New York City.

For him, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision. Capturing his scenes with only naturally available light as well as directly shot monochrome, his images hold power in their underlying preservation of photography in its most natural and raw form.

Mark’s practice is comprised of two parallel lines of work. The first of these lines explores symmetry and perspective in mostly urban architecture. These works capture the beauty of the order present in often overlooked architecture, which is then further emphasized by the monochromatism of the images, which renders all the lines of the symmetry all that much more visible. The second line in Mark’s work deals with the art of storytelling through images as it relates to the female body. In these works, Mark deftly wields extremely dramatic lights and shadows to create gorgeously emotive scenes that can easily stir up memories or connections within a viewer. Further, there is compositional overlap between these lines, both where elements of symmetry and repetition come into the figurative works, as well as where the symmetrical architecture begins to evoke figurative forms in its contours.

His work was recently presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) exhibition in Beijing, China.

Lisa Powers Photographic Artist

"I don’t capture photos, I create them from nothing in my studio… not as one would perceive them in reality but as imagined images. To do this, I build from an idea. Choosing the right model to direct is crucial. I am completely self-taught and perhaps because of that, I am fearless."

The Bauhaus Beehive - Photographic Art Giclée print 16 x 24 in.

Photographic Artist, Lisa Powers was born in the South of France and moved to New York with her family when she was 10 years old. She currently lives and works in New Zealand. Lisa quit her day-job as proof reader for a small advertising agency to become a janitor in a large commercial photo studio. Ambitious to become a professional freelance commercial photographer, she learned by watching the studio photographers work in the daytime and then used the space to shoot with models at night.

“I learned more by experimentation than technical correctness since I had no technical knowledge. This was in the film era. I was one of the few women working successfully in commercial photography, an industry which was (still is) largely male-dominated.”

In 2009 she took a big risk to relocate (with her four kitties) from New York to New Zealand. 

“It took a while for the dust and kitty litter to settle but when it did I changed from commercial photographer to Photographic Artist.”

With several successful gallery exhibits to her resume, Lisa’s  "WanRong: The Last Empress of China" is currently on exhibition at The Buddhist Centre, Christchurch, New Zealand, till 17th October.

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

Parrot Tulip Color digital photograph
Buttercups Color digital photograph

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 amongst 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 center 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 see things. It is what I am here for. In a pushbutton world where everything is digital and everyone a photographer, ambiance 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."

“When you are quiet and observe everyday life there is drama and emotion even in stillness - that is the story my photography conveys."

New Earth II - Fine Art Photograph 15 x 23 in.

“I consider myself blessed to have had a mix of experiences: a father who was a professional photographer and worked with the renowned fashion photographer Norman Parkinson whose stories helped to open my eyes to the world; a large family with all the accompanying joys and challenges; 34 years of international development experience with the United Nations and an innate passion for travel and adventure. Together these experiences led me to photography as a form of expression for what I see around me. I practice documentary photography out of which I see, compose and develop pieces of fine art. Other amazing photographers have influenced my work including the advice in David Hurn's On Being a Photographer,  Robert Doisneau, workshops with National Geographic’s photographers like Raul Touzon, Arthur Meyerson and Sebastian "Suki" Belaustegui. More recently, I have enjoyed the generosity of Robert Rodriguez Jr. and his beautifully lit and textured landscapes. My work is a mosaic of influences, lessons, social development experiences and life in general. My photography is in progress as there is so much more to see and learn.”
