Consuelo Kanaga

Consuelo Kanaga - [Untitled] (Horse Drawn Wagon) 1922

Consuelo Kanaga, one of the pioneers of modern American photography, began her career as a photojournalist in 1915 in San Francisco. In the 1920s, Alfred Stieglitz inspired her to develop a more aesthetic approach, and a trip to Europe in 1928 awakened her lifelong preoccupation with European modernist painting and the ways in which that work was influenced by the sculpture of Africa. Kanaga successfully combined a Pictorialist aesthetic with a realist strategy, producing handsomely composed and carefully printed images. She was one of few white American photographers in the 1930s to make artistic portraits of African Americans.

In Frances with a Flower, the focus is so sharp that the slightly rough texture of the woman’s skin, shiny with perspiration at the hairline, seems palpable. The forehead, nose, and cheeks, highlighted by flash, contrast with the deep-set eyes lost in shadow, thus producing a sculptural dimension that turns the photograph into hills and valleys of light. The stark white blossom pressed to the woman’s nose emphasizes the sensuality of her face.

Martine Franck


Martine Franck (April 2, 1938 – August 16, 2012) was a well-known Belgian documentary and portrait photographer, and the second wife of Henri Cartier-Bresson. A member of Magnum Photos for over 32 years, Franck was also co-founder and president of the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation.

Elena Gallotta


Elena Gallotta is an Italian born fine-art photographer currently based in Ireland.

She comes from a ballet and theatre background which strongly influences her work.

Her images reflect her relationship with dance and non-verbal communication itself.

Her work can often be defined as an antropolologic study of the the human body and it’s mysterious subtle language.

Elena’s way of composing a picture and working with the light is hugely inspired by her passion for paintings, especially the Old Masters.

She has been published in numerous art magazines throughout Europe. In 2009 she went back to her first love when she was commissioned to make a short dance film by the Irish Arts Council.

She collaborated with two major dance performers from France and the film was a very productive visual-kinetic exchange between them all. The final result, “Story of One” was selected and screened in the Oxford Dance Festival in 2010.

The best stories are those that challenge preconceived notions about a place or an issue, that challenge stereotypes and make people rethink their view on things

Paul Strand


Along with Edward Weston and Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand was one of the defining masters of early American modernist photography. Strand was introduced to photography by the renowned social documentarian Lewis Hine, who instilled in him an understanding of the photograph as a powerful tool that should be used for the betterment of humanity. Finding his own vision, in the early 20th century Strand began taking the photographs for which he is best known: scenes of urban hustle and bustle, formal abstractions, and street portraits.

Maxwell Dupain Spencer


Maxwell Spencer Dupain is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest photographers. He stressed simplicity and directness in his work, creating images of sharp focus, boldness and graphic composition. He was one of the earliest and most outstanding champions of modernism in Australia.

Dupain’s working life spans decades of commercial and artistic success, and photographic genres. His repertoire includes landscapes, beaches, nudes, still life and architecture. His particular love of the latter, coupled with his carefully set up symmetries made him the pre-eminent photographer of Australian architecture for more than 50 years.

However, Dupain is best known for his photographs of Australians, particularly their beach culture. A dedicated patriot, he believed in clearly and simply showing Australia’s way of life. His 1937 photograph Sunbaker is arguably his most famous work. For many, it is an iconic image of what it means to be Australian.

Dupain tirelessly photographed his beloved homeland, and in particular, Sydney, leaving a legacy of more than one million photographs. His work has been collected by most major Australian galleries, and private collectors world-wide.

A view of burned stumps as peatland forest is cleared by burning for a palm oil plantation at a company’s grounds on November 1, 2015, in the outskirts of Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. The air pollution or haze has been an annual problem for the past 18 years in Indonesia. It’s caused by the illegal burning of forest and peat fires on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo to clear new land for the production of pulp, paper, and palm oil. Desperate civilians at the epicenter of Indonesia’s haze crisis are taking the fight into their own hands, using whatever meager resources they have to confront the fires ravaging their communities as they tire of waiting for the government to take action. This disaster has been exacerbated by this year’s long dry season, triggered by the El Nino weather phenomenon. Ulet Ifansasti / Getty
