Richard Ramirez Jr
California, USA. 16. q: What do you want to show through your photographs? a: I’ve always been intrigued with innocence and natural beauty. I use my sisters for the majority of my shoots and since they’re all young, I am able to capture the youthfulness without really trying. I want to create photos with an ethereal and magical vibe to them. As of now, I haven’t truly...
Giordano - The Things Themselves
Berlin, Germany. 1980 q: Why do you take photographs? a: I guess I’m trying to get closer and as close as possible to the things themselves. But then I also just really enjoy it. I mean, shooting photos and stuff. There’s something spiritual and something technical and that’s basically all good. q: Some of your pictures have a vintage and nostalgic feel to them, does...
United States (back and forth between Fullerton, CA & Boston, MA). q: I like that your pictures seem to document a personal space and the environment and people around you. Yet when complete strangers view your photographs, they only see them at face value, how do you feel about that? Does it affect what you put up on the internet? a: I feel sorry for them. I feel sorry for these...
New York City, USA. q: You’ve shot many portraits, any tips when shooting complete strangers? a: My advice for shooting strangers is to always remember that the subject is the most important element to the shoot. If you loose their attention or their cooperation you have made your job very hard. I go into shooting people I have never met before with a plan, some vague ideas I would like...
From Caracas, Venezuela but currently living in Barcelona q: Your pictures seem quite personal and intimate, what are you trying to show with your photographs? a: I try to show my everyday life. The places and people that are around me. Pictures are my memory, I take them to remember. There are all moments I want to keep and it’s also a way to express myself, to capture feelings, I can...
Born in Tangier, Morocco in 1986 q: You mentioned in your website about your obsession with dreams. Any interesting dreams lately? a: The other day I dreamt it was summer. I was living in a beautiful house built in the middle of the ocean, all surrounded by water. Windows were open and had white curtains that were gently moved by the wind, and the blinding sunlight made everything inside...
Plymouth, UK. q: Favorite camera? a: My mju-1is my favourite, I can take it anywhere I go which is what I love about it. q: Any upcoming projects or ideas? a: I’m about to to a collaborative with a painter called Samuel Stokes. q: Why do people get tattoos? a: Different people get tattoos for different reasons, I would hope most people get tattoos because they mean something...
Italy. Born 1991. q: Do you feel that it’s strange that when viewers see your photograph, they look at the aesthetics rather than the sentimental value that the picture has? a: I thought about it but I think it is not my case. Sometimes I receive comments by some people that make me compliments on the depth of field, this or that and they do it using technical terms that I do not know,...
London, UK. q: What does photography mean to you? a: Photographs are memories. If I think of photography I can hear my granpa saying “Ok everybody here, I want to take pictures”. He had a Rolleiflex which now is lost somewhere in my grandma’s house, and me and my brothers were his favorite subject. Yes, photographs are memories, the pieces of my private puzzle. q:...
In 1980, Martijn Savenije was born in Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. He holds a MSc in International Business Studies of Maastricht University. Currently in Amsterdam where his free time is spent on personal work, music and boxing. q: What is your series “Diffidence” about? a: Well, “Diffidence” is the portrayal of a struggle with self-image and imposed expectations....
New York City, USA. q: What is your project “Decay” about? a: For one of my classes in school, we had to make a digital self portrait of ourselves, and we were allowed to use any digital medium we wanted. I chose do make gifs because I had been wanting to do something with gifs for a while. It’s mostly a reflection on how I felt at the time of the assignment. Moving to New...

Berlin, Germany. q: If I were to visit Berlin, which place would you take me to visit? a: I would take you to the ‘Teufelsberg’ (Devil’s mountain) in the Grunewald forrest. It’s a hill made of rubble from World War II. You get a terrific view of Berlin and you can get lost in the forrest and might meet a family of boars on the way. There’s a nice little lake...
q: Where are you from and what do you do? a: I’m from Madrid, Spain but I live in Paris where I work as an assistant photographer. q: Pick three words to describe your photography? a: Dark, She, Anatomy. q: Do you play any sports? a: Not at all… when the weather is good in Paris I go around on my longboard. That’s it. q: Any new music to recommend? a:...
Oregon, USA. q: Any reason in particular that you use analogue photographic equipment? a: After losing or being robbed of a couple of digital cameras I went and picked up a Diana Mini before leaving on a trip. After getting my first set of prints back the obsession started and I had to get more cameras. I just love that sense of realness that can’t be recreated digitally. q: Do...

Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Born 1993. q: What is your series “My Gucci Self” about? a: My series “My Gucci Self” is about my shadow side, it is about the dark side of my mind. Just like every super hero dwells in the dark side every once in awhile. Using double exposures I tried conveying that in a creepy way. q: Any place you’d like to travel to right...
Born in Brixham, UK. Currently based in Huelgoat, France. q: What does photography mean to you? a: I’m 20 years old and havent been taking photographs for long so I dont think I could possibly say! At the moment I take photographs all the time not for documenting what or where I have been but to explain how I feel about things. They are personal to me. q: Been to any good gigs...
Based in Paris and London. q: What inspires you? a: In photography, I’m increasingly inspired by people. q: You combine illustration and photography in some of your works, what’s the creative process like? a: These are collages. I mostly start with a photographic element, and include it in a universe I draw. But sometimes it’s really different, I just do it as it comes. The only...
