Jeremy Piper

Jeremy Piper grew up on the Northern beaches of Sydney on the East Coast of Australia. Studying photography at High School and immersing himself in the darkroom at an early age led him on a path of wonderment ever since.
Beginning his career as a ‘copyboy’ in the ever shifting sands of print journalism in 1989 at News Ltd in Sydney tutored him about life and the media, a long way from telling his father, a policeman and artist that working for a newspaper was going to be “taking photographs of cats up trees”.
Three decades on his work continues to explore the connection between exponential growth of population in Australia and the effect on the environment with his work on Badgery’s Creek “In the name of progress”.
His work on the Ship Graveyards of India bares witness to the impact of man on the environment whilst giving dignity to the workers amongst the mudplains of Gudjarat. His work was published widely in the book ‘The Human Condition”.
The natural devastation inflicted on Vanuatu from Tropical Cyclone Pam and his work from the East Timorese referendum received many accolades. He has recently been commissioned by National Geographic and Fox to document Tokyo, Japan as part of a Tokyo 2020 multimedia piece. Piper’s work is held in institutional collections and has been widely exhibited throughout regional Australia and parts of France.
He is a co-founding member of Oculi, an Australian based collective of visual storytellers offing a narrative of contemporary life, Piper balances family life between Sydney the Asian Pacific Regions.

Scott Fowler

HI I am a B&W photographer who enjoys photographing people , landscapes & teaching people how to take & produce more emotive B&W images. I believe to produce a good B&W you need to capture the gesture, then be able to extract that from your image for the viewer to enjoy. B&W photography is the soul of photography it has an honesty I don’t think we see in Colour, but that is just me. I offer Workshops here in New Zealand on a unique high country sheep station, challenging photographic situations, great place.


Oliver Stegmann

I was born in 1970 in Basel, Switzerland. Since my late teen years, photography has become a key medium for me to express myself. Professionally, however, I took a different path, studying economics and now working in a management position. I’m married and a father of two lovely daughters.
On many trips to different continents, I have continuously worked on improving my skills as a photographer and on developing my own visual language. I participated in various workshops of well-known photographers such as Mary Ellen Mark, Anders Petersen or Ernesto Bazan.
Until 2007 I photographed exclusively with black-and-white film and made all prints in my own darkroom. In 2005, I started scanning the negatives, editing them in Photoshop and creating fine art prints. Two years later, I started to use also digital cameras.
My long-term project on circuses behind the scenes is planned to be published as a photo book in 2021. My other on-going personal project is to document the childhood years of my children.



Jacob Aue Sobol

Jacob Aue Sobol was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1976. A photographer and member of Magnum Photos, he has published several monographs of his unique, expressive style of black-and-white photography and exhibited his work widely. His images focus on the universality of human emotion and the search for love within oftentimes harsh surroundings.
Jacob lived in Canada from 1994-95 and Greenland from 2000-2002. In Spring 2006 he moved to Tokyo, living there 18 months before returning to Denmark in August 2008. He has traveled extensively in the years since, photographing in Siberia, Thailand, Mongolia, America, and China while staying based in Copenhagen.
After studying at the European Film College, in 1998 Jacob was admitted to Fatamorgana, a Danish school for documentary and art photography. In the autumn of 1999 he went to live in the settlement Tiniteqilaaq on the East Coast of Greenland. Over the next three years, he lived mainly in this township with his Greenlandic girlfriend Sabine and her family, living the life of a fisherman and seal hunter but also photographing. The resulting book “Sabine” was published in 2004.
In the summer of 2005, Jacob traveled with a film crew to Guatemala to make a documentary about a young Mayan girl’s first journey to the ocean. The following year he returned by himself to the mountains of Guatemala, where he met the indigenous Gomez-Brito family. He stayed with them for a month to tell the story of their everyday life. The series won first prize in the Daily Life category of World Press Photo in 2006.
In 2006 he moved to Tokyo and during the next two years, he created the images for the book “I, Tokyo,” which was awarded the Leica European Publishers Award in 2008.
Following his time in Tokyo, Jacob worked extensively in Bangkok, resulting in the 2016 book “By the River of Kings.” In 2012 he began photographing along the Trans-Siberian Railroad and spent the next five winters photographing in the remote Russian province of Yakutia for his project “Road of Bones.” He has ongoing projects in Denmark (“Home”) and the United States (“America”).

Emmet Gowin



Emmet Gowin is an American photographer known for his broad range of subjects, including moths, his wife, and landscapes. “There are things in your life that only you will see, stories that only you will hear. If you don’t tell them or write them down, if you don’t make the picture, these things will not be seen, these things will not be heard,” he has said. Born on December 22, 1941 in Danville, VA, he studied at the Richmond Professional Institute and received his MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1967. Studying under Harry Callahan at RISD, Gowin adopted his professor’s penchant of using his wife as a model for photographs. By the 1980s, the artist’s work had expanded to include aerial photography of derelict industrial factories, damaged agricultural fields, and nuclear plants, in different locations around the world. These works hint at Gowin’s fascination with finding beauty in areas devastated by manmade and natural disasters. He currently lives and works in Newtown, PA. Today, the photographer’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others.

Manuel Álvarez Bravo

Manuel Álvarez Bravo fue el primer fotógrafo artístico de México y es la figura más importante de la fotografía latinoamericana del siglo XX. Nació y se crió en la Ciudad de México. Mientras tomaba clases de arte en la Academia de San Carlos, se covirtio en fotografo autodidacta. Su carrera abarcó desde finales de la década de 1920 hasta la década de 1990 con su pico artístico entre los años 1920 y 1950. Su sello distintivo como fotógrafo era capturar imágenes de lo ordinario pero en forma irónica o surrealista. Sus primeros trabajos se basaron en influencias europeas, pero pronto fue influenciado por el movimiento muralista mexicano y el impulso cultural y político general en el momento de redefinir la identidad mexicana. Rechazó lo pintoresco, empleando elementos para evitar estereotipos. A lo largo de su carrera tuvo numerosas exposiciones de su obra, trabajó en el cine mexicano y fundó la Editorial Editorial de la Plástica Mexicana. Ganó numerosos premios por su trabajo, sobre todo después de 1970.
La carrera fotográfica de Álvarez Bravo abarcó desde finales de los años veinte hasta los noventa. Se formó en las décadas posteriores a la Revolución Mexicana, cuando hubo una producción creativa significativa en el país, en gran parte patrocinada por el gobierno que quería promover una nueva identidad mexicana basada tanto en la modernidad como en el pasado indígena del país.
Aunque ya estaba trabajando a fines de los años 20, se convirtio en un fotógrafo freelance a tiempo completo en 1930, renunciando a su trabajo del gobierno. Ese mismo año, Tina Modotti fue deportada de México por actividades políticas y dejó a Álvarez Bravo su cámara y su trabajo en la revista mexicana Folkways. Para esta publicación, Álvarez Bravo comenzó a fotografiar la obra de los muralistas mexicanos y otros pintores. Durante el resto de la década de 1930, su carrera se estabilizo. Se reunió con el fotógrafo Paul Strand en 1933 en el lugar de filmacion de Redes, y trabajó con él brevemente. En 1938, conoció al artista surrealista francés André Breton, que promovió el trabajo de Alvaréz Bravo en Francia, exponiéndolo allí. Más tarde, Breton pidió una fotografía para la portada del catálogo para una exposición en México. Alvarez Bravo creó “La buena fama durmiendo”, que los censores mexicanos rechazaron por desnudez. La fotografía se reproduciría muchas veces después de eso sin embargo.
Alvarez Bravo capacitó a la mayoría de la próxima generación de fotógrafos como Nacho López, Héctor García y Graciela Iturbide. De 1938 a 1939, enseñó fotografía en la Escuela Central de Artes Plásticas, actualmente la Escuela Nacional de Artes (UNAM). En la segunda mitad de los años sesenta impartió clases en el Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográficos. De 1943 a 1959, trabajó en la industria cinematográfica mexicana tomando fotografias, lo que le llevó a experimentar algo con el cine. En 1957 trabajó haciendo fotos para la película Nazarín de Luis Buñuel.
Su carrera incluyó más de 150 exposiciones individuales de su trabajo junto con la participación en más de 200 exposiciones colectivas. En 1928, una fotografía suya es elegida para ser exhibida en el Primer Salón Mexicano de la Fotografía. Su primera exposición individual fue en la Galería Posada de la Ciudad de México en 1932. En 1935 expuso con Henri Cartier-Bresson en el Palacio de Bellas Artes, con textos de Langston Hughes y Luis Cardoza y Aragón. En 1940 su obra forma parte de una exposición surrealista de André Breton en la galería de Inés Amor. Edward Steichen seleccionó el trabajo de Bravo para la exposición 1955 en el MoMA que fue exhibida alrededor del mundo, vista por más gente que cualquier otra hasta la fecha. En 1968, el Palacio de Bellas Artes realizó una retrospectiva de cuatro décadas de trabajo de Álvarez Bravo. Expuso en el Museo de Arte de Pasadena y el Museo de Arte Moderno de Nueva York en 1971, la Galería Corcoran de Arte en Washington en 1978, el Museo de Israel en Jerusalén en 1983 y la Biblioteca Nacional en Madrid en 1985. De 1994 a 1995, Evidencias de lo invisible, cien fotografías, se presentó en el Museo de Bellas Artes de Nueva Delhi, en el Palacio Imperial de Pekín y en el Centro Cultural de Belém en Lisboa. En 2001, el J. Paul Getty Museum de Los Angeles organizó una retrospectiva de su obra.

All aspects of photography interest me and I feel for the female body the same curiosity and the same love as for a landscape, a face or anything else which interests me. In any case, the nude is a form of landscape. There are no reasons for my photographs, nor any rules; all depends on the mood of the moment, on the mood of the model
