“In 2020 I started photographing my fascination for the human body, movement, energy, lines within the body (muscle or shadow), and expression. It inspires me HOW someone is as an individual. Their likes, their passion, their energy, and their character. How they move and act. I try to capture them in their natural element. I try to portray them in such a way that I hope the public will get the same feeling I get when I work with people. My design method is Homo Ludens.”

“I am a Romanian photographer, based in Cluj Napoca, who experiments with portraiture. I strive to find beauty in the peculiar, twisting the human form and using it to create an aura of restlessness around my art.”
“Growing up, I mostly felt alone as a below the right knee amputee – save for
the company of my uncle. He had lost his thumb in a carpentry accident some
years around my birth, and so it always warmed my heart to go downstairs
and see his stump that looked like mine. Here, I captured the image in all of his
smoky Brooklyn glory, the natural cadence of my extended family. This photo is
tribute, celebration, and a thank you.”
“This Collection of mine is called Femininity in 7 acts and it is about being a woman in different environment and circumstances. I used fluorescent paint (its sensitive at UV lights) on canvas.”
Born in Flanders (B), 22/06/62, living near Brussels, novice amateur photographer. Since 2015 member of the collective ‘Stadsbiografie Brussel’. I carry my Fuji cameras with humor, compassion, and a lot of curiosity. My appetite to taste the unknown is innate. How people behave and interact in and with their surroundings triggers me to immortalize them in photography. Like most of the street photographers, I am a bit voyeuristic and I prefer to take candid shots. Viviane Maier is my heroine!
In Cantonese, the sound KIU refers to „a bridge / to bridge”. KIU’s art practice is based on the idea that communication exists prior to language. Communication emerges from the entanglements of the elements within the environment. The work develops through intuitive experimentation with material encounters that belong to a specific place, resulting in intimate documentation that raises questions about possibilities and limits of human senses in relation to the environment.
Born in 1989 in Ełk, a town in the Mazury region in the east of Poland. Currently lives and creates in Białystok. An independent artist. In her works, she focuses on man, his emotions, fears, and inner pain. On the silhouette subjected to constant experiences, which often seemingly calm shows a troubled interior. According to the artist: „Human is a mystery for me, which every time I try to discover anew, measuring myself with my own demons”.

„Under the blanket of white cloth, the statues looked mysterious and oddly alive”. The above words from Lizzie’s Calliga’s book entitled „Metoikesis”, were the source of inspiration for the creation of my own photo sequence entitled „Breathe”, which consists of a total of thirteen self-portrait photos. My photographic narrative has exactly this purpose. To bring to life a lifeless statue that initially follows the principle of covering the whole body first and parts of it later.
