S. Lopes Photographs

"My work is in project form as the subject has a better chance to reveal itself over time. The work is usually, but not always, documentary style. Whatever the subject, I always have a personal, artistic, social or visual connection. I look for form and design and most importantly, content."

Marshall Gould

"Photography is a very subtle thing. You must let the camera take you by the hand, as it were, and lead you into your subject."

- Margaret Bourke-White

Horse Avedon - B&W Digital Photograph 30.5 x 45.5 in.

Marshall Gould’s sharp, high contrast black-and-white photographic prints can be characterized by diagonal framing, clean compositions, dramatic highlights and strong, luxurious shadows utilizing the full dynamic range of the zone system.

Often taking candid, documentary-style shots on location with natural light, Gould’s latest subject matter might involve a landscape of the American West, a series of equine portraits or documentary images that show the intimate relationship between a mare and her newborn foal, or a culture/lifestyle image, making these gritty, regional works as conceptually dense as they are compositionally superb.

Gould’s works are about co-existence and reference the stylistic philosophies of the early black-and-white “Golden Age” of photography. Gould aims to convey a vibrant and provocative visual narrative about the land, the wildlife, and western culture of his current locale.

He has exhibited at the Agora Gallery in NYC, The Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece, The Open Shutter Gallery in Durango, Colorado, and The Mistlin Gallery in Modest, CA. He has also received numerous honors in The Spider Awards and has been frequently published in Black & White Magazine over the last six years.

Marshall Gould was born in Providence, Rhode Island and received his Bachelor of Industrial Design from the College of Visual and Performing Arts, Syracuse University. He and his wife Becky and their 2 golden retrievers live in Oakdale, California, “The Cowboy Capital of the World.”

Giacomo Giannelli

"In my art, I like that point of intimacy between my work and myself. It allows me to show my feelings."

The White Foam - Ultra HD under acrylic (unframed) 100 x 150 cm

Italian fine art photographer, Giacomo Giannelli is based in London.  He has a background as videographer and storyteller which provides an emotional advantage and perspective in his photography. Bathed in masterful light and with a mysterious undertone, each of Giannelli's picture tells a very unique story. His cinematic photographs convey a kind of drama and invite the viewer to consider an intriguing narrative.

S.O. Sivertsen

"I know a great deal about unrest. White paper makes me uneasy. I like it raw and far from picturesque and have put on some marks to guide the painting. Often I get surprised. In fact always. Then I’m happy for a while. Style? Don't know. What it's about? Can't say – because then everybody knows."

Riverbank - DGA (photo/watercolor) 50 x 50 cm

Stig-Ove Sivertsen lives and works in Mosjöen, Northern Norway, and has over the years participated in many exhibitions in Norway and abroad. A self-taught artist, he works mainly with watercolor as well as acrylic and photography. A member of NFUK (Norwegian Association of Independent Artists), he maintains a personal gallery, Galleri SOS and has exhibited at Atelier Valva, Vefsn Museum and The Swedish Loft in Norway as well as The 66th Northern Norwegian Art Exhibition 2012 and Mid-Nordic Art Festival. Sivertsen’s works reflect a freedom and passion with which he seems to approach his medium. Skillfully executed these watercolors reveal the artist’s unique visual perspective and a strong ability to control the brush but also disclose a surrendering to the medium, letting the brush, the color and the water guide the creation of each unique field of the composition.

Anita Kovacevic

"My whole concept and approach to art is simple just as my philosophy of mind is. I'm inspired by the simplest and quieter side of life and enjoy peaceful natural escapes. My images reflect my inner vision and my floating between memories and dreams."

Sirene - Photograph 42 x 42 cm

"In my work, I have drawn inspiration from the beauty expressed in simple things in unexpected ways. I create from my own life experiences."

Anita Kovacevic is a Canadian/Bosnian fine art photographer and visual artist, working primarily in monochrome photography.

Born in 1975 in Slovenia (former Yugoslavia) and after many years of wandering through many countries (Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Poland, Canada, USA, and Austria); being a former refugee and immigrant; she currently lives with her family in a small village near Derventa in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

"I'm an internationally published and exhibited award-winning, fine art photographer, and visual artist. My art reflects me; my thoughts, my emotions, my life experience; and is essentially centered and inspired by the simplest, uncomplicated and quieter side of life, as well as the beauty of the natural world. I try to stimulate the viewers' imagination by touching them through sometimes dramatic and poetic creations. I believe that all creative work is essentially autobiographical; everything that we are, feel, our heritage, curiosity, imagination, longing, our thoughts, and emotions merge into our artwork."

Anita creates fine art photography, but she also has interest in street photography and photojournalism. Her images are found in private collections worldwide - USA, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, etc. Her artworks have been published both in print (art books and magazines) and online (ebooks and galleries) in various countries - USA, UK, India, Germany, Portugal, etc. She is a contributing photographer at Transterra Media, a member/photojournalist of the Camerapixo -International Photography Magazine, a stock contributor at iStockphoto, and a hobbyist jewelry/card designer at Artful Mind Studio.

Anita is a contributing artist of project 'Trees of the planet - Planet of trees'  and is currently enrolled in the Professional Photography Course in the New York Institute of Photography.

Larry Garmezy

“My photography is shaped by early adventures as a field geologist. Through this filter, I capture the unique and subtle patterns and textures I find in the details within waterscapes and landscapes.”

Susanne Lyoubi-Burk

"For me, ICM technology is a means of expression in photography. The intentional movement of the camera often results in exciting "painterly" effects. A detachment from the form and color of the representational motif fascinates me and allows for a broader artistic interpretation."

Building with Red Bow - Photograph 6000 x 4000 px

Self-taught, German contemporary artist, Susanne Lyoubi-Burk has been intensively engaged with abstract photography (ICM) since 2017. She is a member of Kunst International, Stuttgart e.V. Check the artist's website for a detailed list of exhibitions.

Anett Udud

"Art has always been one of the most important things in my life. I have been drawing and painting since I can remember, and in 2014 I started experimenting with a camera and Photoshop as well, as I was looking for more effective ways to express myself. My photographs are often influenced by books."

Dissolved, 2016 - Photograph 59.4 x 42 cm

Hungarian Photographer and Visual Artist, Anett Udud is currently living and working in Ireland. Self-taught in photography, in 2016 she began college studies to further develop her technical skills.

"Over the years, I believe I have developed a unique, personal style in my photographic work, which can be defined as conceptual fine art photography. Since the beginning, I had the chance to take part in exhibitions and my images have been published in various art magazines.

In my free time, I like reading, so my images are often influenced by books I have read; mainly fairy tales and stories about fantasy and reality. I often look at paintings as well, to find inspiration, while creating my own pictures. I believe, looking at my work, the impact of this medium is apparent: my pictures are very "painterly," the overall color tone of them is highly manipulated, there are no real blacks or whites, the mid-tones are very dominant. I often add fog to my pictures in post-production, which helps me create a dream-like scene as most of the time I visualize ideas from my imagination.

I often take self-portraits. I have always been fascinated by the human being, and how much a portrait can say without words. I knew I wanted to express myself through portraiture, but when I started photography, I was too self-conscious to ask anyone to be my model. In the beginning, photographing myself was for rather practical reasons, but it quickly became my "diary," a very strong part of my work. I am enjoying taking self-portraits, mostly because I get inspiration for my images from my own experiences. Through my images, I want to show feelings which are very hard to define, so I feel like the picture can only be "real" if I am the model."

Fabiolla Loureiro

"I'm fascinated by the invisible and unconscious. When I wonder, I seek silhouettes. I prefer dreams instead of reality. It does not matter if it is day or night, my eyes seek for mysterious images filled with shadows, forms, outlines, contours, sketches, shapes, figures, ghost faces, alluring moments."

Solo (Berlin 2018) - Fine Art Photograph printed in Photo Rag paper 50 x 75 cm

Based in São Paulo, Brasil, Fabiolla Loureiro has been working as a photographer since 2010. In the beginning, she mainly explored fashion and nude. But in the last few years, she became obsessed with traveling (over 30 countries) and found herself involved with this freedom and opportunity that this kind of photography allows.

In her street photography, we observe the practice of natural light, rain, silhouettes, high contrasts and cold nights. The preference of black and white comes from an inspiration from  Brassaï, Robert Capa, Robert Doisneau, Saul Leiter, Elliott Erwitt, Sabine Weiss, Willy Ronis. Urban chaos and the period between wars are also a constant source of study and reference for her. 

Fabiolla is one of the permanent artists of Andreus Gallery, SP and since 2017 participates in an architecture/design project with Casa Portoro. In this project, she has more than 40 photos in exhibition, different measures, that are part of a few ambiances in the house in collaboration with some of the biggest names of architecture in Brazil. In the last two years, she had exhibitions in London, Bologna, Madrid and Paris, and now in March again in Italy. Her first three one-woman shows happened in 2016 in São Paulo. In January 2018, she was selected as one of the members of Contemporary Art Curator, an online contemporary art magazine, which covers visual arts events and connects artists from all over the world, and she is also part of Art Productions New York, a network of representation for artists with prestigious standards and vision. Last year she returned to write about her travel experiences for European Travel Magazine and launched her own blog sharing her influences and point of view on photography. In all those years, Fabiolla studied only three months at Focus Photography in São Paulo and remains a primarily self-taught artist.
