Keisuke Takahashi is a photographer who lives in Tokyo. He bought an iPhone4S in December 2011 and it opened the way to express his feeling in photography. Four years and little has passed since then. Now he’s aiming to express the strong and deep representation in B&W Photography with various cameras like DSLR, Film SLR, Film compact camera but his main camera is still iPhone. He held his first exhibition “The Lighthouse Man” in February 2016. The idea of this project came out of his divorce experience in 2014. He defines Lighthouse as a symbol of the isolation, and he tried to shoot himself as the lighthouse man who watches the ships run through the ocean of life. Not only the photograph, “The Lighthouse Hat” was created by himself also.

David GiovannettiMy name is David Giovannetti and I live in a small town in Italy, called Corinaldo. I am not the son of an artist, nor did I attend art school, but still boast a curriculum that goes beyond any academic teaching: the tales of the adventures of my father, an Italian who emigrated to the United States to try his luck.

Thanks to his absurd stories, sometimes fantastic, my childhood flourished with wonder and curiosity about the world. Through fantasizing about his stories, I found the way to express myself through imagination which was sparked through art, specifically photography.

The path to turn this passion into a full-time job is long and arduous but I’m giving it my all to achieve this.

Asi Es La Vida

by Alessandro Ciapanna

These photographs were taken in a train cemetery on the outskirts of Uyuni, a small city in the south of Bolivia. This series is entitled “Asi Es La Vida,” from graffiti scrawled on one of the rusting locomotives.

I throw myself passionately at life. And life often smiles back. When that happens, I like to have my camera ready.

In what is a perennially ongoing process, I have developed a sense of what works, photographically. I can sometimes perceive when a situation has the quid I like to call the “wow factor”. I have honed my ear to the sound of a ball bouncing or a child laughing. Because these are telltale signs that something wonderful is taking place. It is a miracle, happening, unscripted. And sometimes – if you develop and trust your serendipity – it’s happening right around the corner. It’s something universal, and fleeting. Therefore all the more wonderful. All the more worth capturing. This is what I most like to photograph. Some call it life.

Thomas Krueger-Self Portrait on OverpassArtist: Thomas Krueger

Krueger’s images often present as the convergence of dual moments emanating from disparate worlds.  At the precise point of collision, they create singular integrated images that are at once surreal and experiential; the history of abandonment is revealed and celebrated in what Krueger interprets as its present day narrative of hope. His commentary is simultaneously innocent and dark, humorous and eerie.

Krueger’s work reflects his culturally diverse upbringing with a Japanese mother whose family descends from a long line of Kimono makers, and an American father stationed at a Navy base in Yokosuka, Japan. Krueger’s aesthetic and vision was cultivated at an early age when his father gave him a camera at age eight which eventually led to his first professional job as a staff photographer for The Seahawk, a Naval newspaper.

Paying tribute to both cultures, Krueger combines both traditions in the signing of his work with his American surname signature Krueger and his mother’s Hanko signature (Japanese ancestral name stamp) Niiro, a Samurai family name.

Krueger delves in various mediums but prefers film, both color and B&W. He enjoys perfecting his craft in the darkroom. He says, “In growing as a fine art photographer, I have embraced traditional darkroom techniques which I feel that one day may become a lost art in this world of digital technology. Time spent alone in the darkroom allows me to reflect and connect with my art.”

Krueger moved to Seattle in 1994 to study at The Art Institute of Seattle where he received a Degree in Commercial Photography.

Krueger is the recipient of multiple awards for his art. His work has been shown in solo and juried shows throughout Seattle, NYC, Miami, Atlanta, Switzerland, and Finland and has been featured in numerous publications internationally. Thomas continues to exhibit his work all over Seattle.
