Tysonne Winter Ralston
Melbourne, Australia q: Your main subject in your photography is people (obviously), what part or parts of a person do you want to show? a: Overt vanity in some, disregard in others and private showings of self in a few - hopefully the majority. I am very interested in vulnerability and sometimes slight forms of degradation; that said I want to show someone’s beauty in whatever form that may...
28 year old living in Lodz, Poland. q: What is your favorite Polish food? a: Traditional Polish food really depends on the season. Seasons also influence the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables. In the Spring, I like sorrel soup with little chopped leaves, it is sour and delicious, it’s the best what you can eat then! In the Summer – young potatoes with dill, fried eggs and...
New York native photographer studying at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. q: I feel that a lot of photography is about color and light, is it an important element in your pictures? a: There are different ways I could answer this question. A fellow-photographer friend of mine told me that in his work, subject matter is key, and color/light aren’t really factors....
Nicaragua. q: I like your series “Strangers” and the little stories behind them. What’s the best or worst part about shooting people you don’t know? a: The best part about shooting strangers is definitely the little stories and experiences it creates. the project has given me the opportunity to talk to people I never would have approached otherwise, and hopefully I can...

Philadelphia, USA. Born 1989. q: You’ve done a lot of portraits, any tips when photographing people? a: Most of the portraits I’ve taken are my friends so the more comfortable and relaxed they are, the more easier it is to photograph them. When it’s someone I don’t know and I’m not getting what I want, I tell them to take a deep breath and start talking to them...
Italian photographer and director. Born 1984. q: So what is your series “Handball” about? a: Handball is a series of pics shot in a single game court. Geometries, musculature, players and the game play. Handball is a “physical documentary” where the point of view moves inside the playground. During the game. Into the game. I started taking pictures far from the gameplay. Then i...
Binghamton, New York. Born 1991. q: Your pictures show lots of outdoors, water bodies and bodies in water. Would you say you are drawn to the outdoors (or water, for that matter)? a: Definitely. My fondness memories growing up in upstate NY involve going to my grandmothers lake house, running around hitting rocks into the water with a baseball bat. So I think that I’m continuously...
Paris. Born in 1988. q: Do you think photography has changed the way you look at things? a: Yes, clearly. When I catch a moment while taking pictures, I get something and so I open myself to reality. However, the picture is still separated from the reality, it continues to refer to it. This notion of representing distance interests me. In fact, by the process of photography, I turn my...
Scott W. H. Young
New York, USA. q: I feel like you have quite a distinct aesthetic that is subtle and restrained, yet it allows the viewer to fill in the void with their own imagination. What usually goes through your head before you take a picture? a: Photography is satisfying for me in a couple different ways. The first way comes from an enjoyment of the physical process of making photos, from the action of...
From Canada, but currently based in New York, USA. q: I like your series “M/F?”, what were some of the reactions of the subjects that had to cross-dress? a: It really varied from person to person. Some were obviously uncomfortable, especially while walking outside, and others really stepped into the role as a character. One of them in particular developed a full personality for...
Genova, Italy. 26 years old. q: Your photos are rather explicit (I’m going to have a hard time picking pictures), what’s your intention behind this? a: I want only to represent the reality, nothing more. I try to be rawer without flowing in the vulgar. q: Your subjects lack clothing, or are sometimes in the process of taking them off. What does fashion mean to you? a: It...
Currently living in Lisbon, Portugal. q: If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? a: Madagascar seems far enough away to build a new life and hide-out in the jungle. q: What is your series “goodbye” about? a: “goodbye” is a series about the feeling of having to let go of a relationship- with another human being, with a place, with a dream. It’s...

Vermont, USA. q: How’d you describe your photographs/photography? a: I don’t know how to answer this. My photos are mood pieces that are both melancholy and tranquil? Taking pictures is a good way to get some of the loneliness and sadness out of me and into the world where people who are maybe feeling the same way can look at what I’ve shared and go, oh wow, yes, I’m with...
22 year old photographer from Brazil. q: You seem to be pretty into fashion photography, what do you like/hate about it? a: I think there is nothing to hate about it.
