Featured Photographer: John F Cooper - “Organic Portraits”
New York-based photographer John F. Cooper’s series Organic Portraits is a timeless and fundamentally beautiful collection of portraits, produced on traditional 4x5 and 8x10 Polaroid film, that were created to raise awareness for—and help preserve—the world's rainforests. With the aid of stylist Peter Brown, his series showcases living art pieces that combine the worlds of analog photography, style, fashion, and art. The resulting book, funded as a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, donated 100% of it's profits to the Rain Forest Action Network. Featured
Photographer: Mads Madison - “Memories”
Mads Madison is a German self-taught visual artist and analog photographer. His series Memories examines the ideas of false memories, made up moments, and inner conflicts and emptiness that come into our lives via harmful social constructs, such as the desire for beauty and status. By deconstruction, the original message of these images are distorted and their meanings shifted. Scenes and plots are rewritten which leads to a multiverse of interpretational facets and fragments, leaving the viewer orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts.

We’ll be looking at his series Evanescent Energy, where serene landscapes are dynamically transformed by heat and flame Featured
Photographer: K.K. DePaul - “Reluctant Brides” + “Between the Lines”

Producing work that is intensely personal and strikingly created, her assemblages focus on memory and secrets.

Interviewed Photographer: Lynn Bierbaum - “Thai Appreciation”
Lynn Bierbaum is an alternative process photographer and glassblower from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who’s series, Thai Appreciation, explores her search for belonging and for a place she can call home, by creating three-dimensional photography sculptures from a hybrid process of wet plate collodion and blown glass. Lynn’s work strives to find a balance between two and three-dimensional planes which creates an unique perspective for the viewer to observe, hold, and touch the work she creates.
Featured Photographer: Anna Foersterling - “The Best of Anna Foersterling”
Anna Försterling is a German fine art photographer who captures expressive portraits that are both minimalist and complexly emotional. The images she creates expose her models' feelings and character by showing their strength, beauty, and fragility. She captures the whole of the human form with all if it’s detail with her own unique aesthetic that utilizes both nude models and striking faces that takes portraiture to a whole other level.

We are honored to be able to sit down with him to discuss his life, his work, and the faces he’s seen along the way.
Featured Photographer: Nils Karlson - “Vastness”
His series explores the country of Iceland through a pinhole lens that describes the profound feeling of calm and quiet. His images evoke the primal nature of the plains stretching into the distance that allows us to see the true scope of this great land: an immense extent of volcanic debris, soil, and snow. He transports us into the great silence of this environment that can only be described as an almost limitless expanse of sky, changing its face from crystal clear to thick with snow in a blink. It’s only there that we can see the vastness of the world.
