Eriko Kaniwa

"Absurdity is the child of order and chaos. It the evidence that something has been born. The abstract made manifest through me might be small bugs spit out by absurdity. Like bugs, there is a reason for absurdity's existence on this planet."

Nautilus Universe: Meets Branching - Digital media 100 x 100 cm

Eriko Kaniwa is a digital artist at Sensegraphia, Japan. Sensegraphia is a conceptual redefinition of photography, in which the visual aesthetics of the photograph are used to develop and express the sense of nature that enables us to recognize that humans are a part of nature and that we are centrally involved in nature's - even the universe's - dynamics. 

Through digital fine art, Sensegraphia puts forward a philosophy and creative activities that reestablish the essential unity between people and nature, even within the context of today's highly advanced science and technology.

Kaniwa spent two years exploring the symbols of Japanese nature worship, after a period of TV program production and social venture innovation, which are exemplified in the so-called "eight million of gods" of Shinto. 

She reflected on how the ancient Japanese viewed their natural surroundings and symbolized it as an object of prayer. Traveling to over twenty locations throughout Japan, Eriko captured images of torii gates built in water, sacred wedded rocks, world heritage sites, and other spiritual landscapes. These images are collected, together with text, in her book "JOKEI - Symbols of Nature Worship, Sacred Places of Japan", which has won multiple international awards, as one of the best fine art photo books in the world. In addition to this book, her other works have received multiple international awards, including PX3, ND Awards, Sony World Photography Awards, IPA, Pollux Awards, and more.

Eriko also creates digitally enhanced abstract artwork based on her unique philosophy. Her work has been displayed at galleries in London and New York, as well as at the art fairs and international exhibitions such as Fotofever Paris and Barcelona Foto Biennale. She and her artworks have been featured in magazines such as British GQ online, London Life, Wired and more.

"Images should be more than an eye-catcher, they should captivate the viewer and make you think. There is an inseparable connection between thinking, feeling and visual perception."

Vergänglichkeit - Digital photograph / HD Metal print 18,5x40 cm or 35 x 75 cm

German Artist, Anja Morisse creates work with digital media that investigates formal and conceptual elements of seeing. Her published book, "Bremen - Living in and with a city", Verlag Hauschild, Bremen presents a collection of her unique artworks.

"I have two passions in photography: realistic photography like reports, portrait, people, documentaries, and industry. In recent years, I have been drawn to fine art photography with my role models being the Expressionists, Surrealists and Mannerists. This form of presentation gives the opportunity, similar to a report, to deal with things and present them in picture form. Images should more than an eye-catcher they should captivate the viewer and make them think. There is an inseparable connection between thinking, feeling and visual perception."

Anja Diabaté Artistic Photographie

"My photographic version stands for the freedom of art. It marks my work. Trough this, fantasies arise, which are spread out and become part of the story. Art is free. This also means that I don't block myself, instead, I give myself full freedom to become expressed though art. I love what I am doing."

Do You Think About Me? - Your Earth

Photographic artist, Anja Diabaté is based in Hamburg, Germany. She uses Fine Art Photography to transform her concepts and ideas into unique artworks. Her strong ideas are powerfully transformed into creative and extremely expressive and suggestive, soulful photographs. Each image tells a unique story, with Diabaté's aim being to always inspire the viewer to go deeper and experience a moment of reflection.

For the artist is always a requirement to create multiple versions of a single original but without ever losing the cohesion to the embedding series. Each artwork represents a definite concept and encourages Diabaté's viewers to begin creating their own story in their minds.

Some of her series are self-portraits and she takes the dual role of photographer and model. The ornate face paintings and make-up depicted are also all created and performed by Anja.

Anja's nature is to dive deeply into her creativity, to create something completely new and to fully enjoy every step of this process. This is the highest representation of herself.

Mimmi Moretti

"Constantly looking for something new and unusual with the typical curiosity of a child who still marvels, despite their age, for the beauty of the world around them.”

Lift - Fine Art Photograph 70 x 100 cm

Mimmi Moretti, whose birth name is Domenico, was born in Catania in 1966. A few months later the family moved to Paris. It was in the French capital that he was culturally informed and where he began, thanks to his uncle, to take pictures and familiarize himself with the darkroom.

At the age of 20, Moretti started working as a freelance photographer, collaborating with a few magazines. He left college before graduating to work for a German multinational company. A few years later he went on to pursue his own entrepreneurial endeavors during the dot-com business boom. Towards the late 90s, Moretti returned to photography and began experimenting with the new digital photographic technology that was dawning and definitively made the transition to digital photography in 2002. In 2014, he first displayed his photographs in a collective exhibit in London. Moretti loves to range from varying subjects and themes, even if, at the moment, he prefers industrial architecture and societal subject matter. He is always attracted to technical experimentation and he is always, continuously developing different and original styles. His studies in Humanities have often influenced his main projects.

Gus Fine Art

"My name is Gus, I was born in a small village in the north of Spain but now I live in the Balearic Islands. Since I was very young, photography and art have always attracted me, I grew up seeing and reading books and works of great artists; Cartier-Bresson, Adams, magnificent impressionist painters."

World of Puppets - Creative edit 2000 x 2000 mpx

Gus was born in a small village in northern Spain and has been attracted to art and photography from a young age when he began seeing and reading about the work of great artists like Cartier-Bresson, Adams and magnificent impressionist painters, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir.

"I suppose that my lack of skill in painting is what has led me to do my work as I present it today, careful editions of my photographs, where I want the viewer to interact with them. I always start with my own images and usually combine two or three images. The majority include people because I consider the human being to be a fundamental part of the environment in which we live.

My creative editions are the fruit of what goes through my mind, I like to define myself as a "dream hunter", just as with photography time stops, that moment is saved forever, I try to transmit what goes through my mind and capture it, "hunt that dream or illusion" forever. 

It was only in February 2018 where Gus began showing his work, encouraged by friends, he decided to participate in an online gallery. Quickly gaining attention and recognition, he was selected by PHOTOGRAPHIZE gallery as a Featured Artist as well as by Circle Foundation and IBWPA (International Black and White Photographs Association). Gus is published regularly in art magazines including "Shades of Grey" and "EYE Photomagazine."

Today Gus lives in the Balearic Islands, Majorca, Spain and continues to create his beautiful and imaginative mixed digital media artworks.

“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sun set. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

Drawn By The Light - Photograph on archive paper 117 x 78 cm

"I am a non-professional photographer working and living in Zurich, Switzerland. As a Geographer, I use photography to playfully (de-)construct urban spaces, to spatially re-stage urban contexts, and to play with our perception of space and reality.

I exploit the geometry of the built urban environment, and I play with perspectives and angles to create a sense of direction and an impression of depth. I use the design elements of reproduction, reiteration and repetition - created by experimenting with long shutter speeds and several zoom settings or camera positions in one exposure - to “compress space” and remove all context and sense of scale. The thus created compositions become like another world where subjects merge and transform to become new geometric structures. This procedure creates a moment of irritation, but also conveys a sense of calmness in the chaos, and transfers the scene into a transitional world somewhere between reality and dream.

I transform common scenes into geometric, abstract dimensions that produce new and unexpected perspectives. With this work, I hope to evoke ideas around vantage point, perception, and imagination, and to question our making of the world through experience and knowledge."


Daria Martinoni has been awarded Honorable Mentions in both the 2018 and 2019 International Photography Awards (IPA @photoawards, @iphotoawards), in the 2019 IPA “OneShot: Street Photography” Awards (@photoawards, @iphotoawards), in the 2019 Budapest International Foto Awards (BIFA, @budapestfotoawards, @ifotoawards), in the 2019 Tokyo International Foto Awards (TIFA, @ifotoawards), and in the 2019 Annual Photography Awards (APA, @annualphotographyawards).

She was accepted to the photoSCHWEIZ 19 and the photoZURICH 20 (www.photo-schweiz.ch), which is the largest photography exhibition in Switzerland, and to the XIIth edition of the Florence Biennale of Art+Design (www.florencebiennale.org, @FLRbiennale, @florencebiennale)

"Abstract forms ...remembered, dreamed, imagined.”

Cloud over Cerulean Sea - Digital photograph 36 x 24 in.

"I took my first photographs as a young child growing up in Coronado, a seaside town near San Diego, California, with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye my father gave me. His enthusiasm for photography inspired me. I am particularly interested in macro photography and in capturing overlooked details and exploring miniature worlds hidden in ordinary objects, and in the relationship of color, light, shadow, form, perception, and imagination.

My abstract photography captures forms of water and variations of light, all interacting with glass. Each image provides an unrepeatable glimpse of water at the macro level, its forms, natural patterns, and chance combinations that constantly change during the process of capturing the image. The images are titled, but they are open to interpretation by viewers, guided by their own intuition, perceptions, experiences, and memories. The images invite an interaction between the image and the imagination of the viewer. The photographer sees one thing in these abstract images. What do you see?"

American photographer Priscilla Dale Jones earned her Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom and holds a Master’s degree from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University, San Diego, California. Today she lives and works in Columbia, Maryland, USA.

Amir Chodorov

"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'.”

Ground Zero Station

Israeli photographer, Amir Chodorov has been shooting for more than 40 years. In his work, he deals with categories and in the last years, he has been focusing on special panoramas utilizing special techniques that he has created especially for shooting in challenging places.

According to Chodorov, "In a world where everybody has a cell phone camera and almost 2 billion pictures are taken every single day, I am not satisfied with one and simple picture only. When we are looking at an urban scene, we see more than one frame at a time and I wanted to make sure that my work captures that moment and keeps it alive. I am using a special technique where I combine 40 to 500 frames in one photograph."

"I try to encapsulate the full story of places and objects surrounding us and I am also trying to create excitement for the observer. The inspiration for my technique also came by studying the work of the great masters of the Renaissance and later, such as Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci, and others who created large works of art that could be observed for hours, where we could always find new elements and details constantly."

"The purpose of my art is achieved when I manage to create an emotional impact and a reflection between people and the reality around them,” explains Chodorov.

Describe your work in 3 words: Colorful, Dreamy, Moody

Stronger

"My photographs are characterized by their bold color, artistic concept, often with elements of Surrealism. I usually capture my projects in series of 3-10 pictures and like to hide social themes into them. I often use elements like minimalism, symmetry, emotional emptiness."

What themes does your work involve?
I often build my projects around various social topics. I have two long-term projects where I focus on people's stories. Now I am preparing several projects, which will deal with the consumer society, which I consider a current and very interesting topic for processing. Besides that, now and then, I take an art photo that has no strong theme in the background.
Describe your creative process.
I create in series very often, which makes sense to me. Series give me the opportunity to tell a story, but at the same time don't force me to do it. I usually discover stimuli, for example, a great building/location and after that, I start to think about other necessary attributes for a final concept. When the idea in my head is complete, I start drawing storyboards. Then I take a number of photos for one series and shortlist them for the final series.
What influences your work? What inspires you? Why do make art?

I find inspiration everywhere, for example in various places, things and people. The incentive might be often a trifle or a small detail of an ordinary thing which I see. I have a huge collection of ideas in my Excel file but the real problem is to bring the ideas to life, because of lack of time. I do art photography because I find in it passion, the opportunity to express myself and to turn my thoughts into something tangible. It brings me a lot of satisfaction.

What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
There is no correct answer to this question. Art is subjective. Where one sees art, others may not. Personally, art is the connection between beauty and the ability to captivate viewers. It is also the ability to raise questions and to make people reflect on the meaning of the piece. However, I am aware that someone else may define art quite differently.
What is the role of the artist today?
I think the role of artists has been the same for centuries. To engage, to challenge, to provoke in an unconventional way. And I will repeat myself, art for me is beauty and aesthetic. I want to create works you want to have at home, which will make your day better.
