Eric Kellerman is a Briton who has lived near Nijmegen in the Netherlands for just over half his life. In 2008, he retired from academic life to spend even more time on photography.
He works almost entirely in the studio and uses digital equipment from camera to print, although image manipulation is limited to darkroom-like processes. Specialising in the nude, he has a regular team of female collaborators, most of whom have a serious interest in movement (dance, drama therapy, athletics, martial arts). Sometimes, when there is no model available, he photographs vegetables and fruit out of desperation. He is doing more fashiony things these days too.
Kellerman used to consider his work to be distant, abstract, melancholic, ‘unerotic’, despite its subject matter. Now he’s not so sure. He emphasises line, geometrical form, texture, implicit movement, and above all, chiaroscuro. He likes to create ambiguity in his photos, so that the viewer is sometimes unsure what part of the body is being looked at. In this way, he attempts to free the female body of its conventional associations.
He has been influenced by surrealism (Dali, Magritte, Delvaux’ nudes and railway stations) and the Canadian ‘magic realist’ painter Alex Colville, whose occluded bodies in essentially intimate scenes can create a surprising sense of alienation. This partial view, the ‘privileged peep’, fits in with Kellerman’s particular aesthetic very well.

Dawn Black

"The Bather", De Pauw, Wassenaar

You could say that photography is in my blood. My father and grandfather were both keen amateur photographers plus my grandfather also worked at Ilford, the black and white film and paper company. As a youngster I was usually to be found with a camera in hand and justifiably earned the affectionate nickname of “David Bailey” in the family.

This early creativity and interest grew and saw me study History of Art and Architecture at university. This love of history and architectural design shows still in my landscape images as I have a tendency to include historical and modern buildings within the landscapes I photograph.

My passion for photography has continued to grow in the 30 years since I first picked up a camera. The creative possibilities provided by the digital technology now available has led me to where I am now, providing professional photographic services and selling my fine art images in a variety of media.

I endeavour to capture my images in-camera only using post processing to optimise the image with minimal adjustments – colour balance, exposure and contrast plus converting to black and white – much in the same way photographers of old processed in the dark room.

I have been very fortunate in having lived in three different countries over the past 13 years. In 2003 my family moved from Scotland to Singapore which afforded me some fantastic travel photography opportunities including many destinations within Australia plus Cambodia. I am now based in The Netherlands having returned to Europe in 2010. Here I am grasping the opportunity for travel with two hands, producing travel and fine art images from the UK, USA, Jordan, Malta, Italy, Austria and France plus locally within The Netherlands.

Commercially I have spent the last 5 years building up a busy interiors photography business. I help hotels and guest houses to showcase their spaces as well as helping property clients to increase their perceived value and speed up the rental and sales by enticing viewings with stunning but realistic images.

Bert Hardy

tumblr_n6npvvdnws1qd3c2yo1_1280

 

The eldest of seven children, Bert Hardy rose from humble working class origins in Blackfriars, London, leaving school at age 14 to work for a chemist where he learnt how to chemically process photos.

After selling 200 prints of King George V and Queen Mary passing by in a carriage, he went on to freelance for The Bicycle magazine, saving up to buy a second-hand, small-format Leica 35 mm camera which was to change his life.

Self taught and using the small Leica camera instead of the traditional larger press cameras, Hardy was recruited by the editor of Picture Post, Tom Hopkinson, in 1941. He went on to become the Post’s Chief Photographer, earning his first photographer credit for a February 1941 photo-essay about Blitz-stressed fire-fighters.

Hardy later served as a war photographer in the Army Film and Photographic Unit (AFPU) from 1942 until 1946, covering the D-Day landings in June 1944, the liberation of Paris and the allied advance across the Rhine. He was also one of the first photographers to enter the liberated Belsen to record the dreadful scenes there.

His later photo-journalism took him all around the world, and his famous 1951 Picture Post photograph of two young women sitting on railings at Blackpool – which has been reproduced all over the world – was taken on a humble Box Brownie camera.

Mick Waghorne is a photographer based in Wiltshire, England. As he wrote: “Whilst I was interested in photography as a teenager this largely waned until the onset of digital photography.”
In the last years has focused in shoot of nudes in studio environment.
“I like the blank canvas that I have before me and the challenge of creating something in tandem with the model with whom I’m working. The creation of the image is a two way thing.

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

Christopher Rimme

1

In an attempt to articulate the visceral potency of Christopher Rimmer’s photography, the author, Tony Park said Rimmer’s work looked so deeply into Africa’s heart that you could almost feel the heat and taste the dust.

Christopher Rimmer was born in England an emigrated to South Africa as a child. He began taking photographs as a teenager with a plastic 35mm Hanimex camera. After immigrating to Australia in 1981, he studied photography formally, firstly under Werner Hammerstingl and then later at Rusden College under Paul Green. He graduated in 1991.

His critically acclaimed photographs of Africa have been widely published in media around the world. He has exhibited in group and solo shows both in Australia and in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa & the U.S. His work is represented in several corporate and notable private collections. He obtained an Excellence accreditation in the Federation International de l’Art photographique in 2009 and platinum in 2010 and in 2012 received an Honourable Mention at the Montargis National Contest in France. He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and was shortlisted for British magazine B&W Photographer of the Year for his work in Southern Africa in 2011 and again in 2012.

In 2014 his work ‘Sign of Life’ was screened at Visa Pour L’Image, Perpignan in France and the Ankor Photographic Festival in Cambodia.

Christopher Rimmer’s most recent work, Amapondo, photographed on the east coast of South Africa, will be exhibited throughout 2015 at Art Expo New York, Jan Royce Gallery, Cape Town, Art Room 9, Munich, Art San Diego, Spectrum Miami and Jeff Makin Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.

Art Business News Magazine nominated Christopher Rimmer Top Artist to Watch in their 2015 summer edition.

A stunning collection by a talented photographer. Prepare for a journey not just to Africa but to an oasis of balance and beauty.
Tim Butcher – Author

Rimmer’s portraits are richly layered with potent cross-cultural symbolism, a fusion of South African and Western imagery and fundamentally emotive. They are also simply stunning, peaceful, even joyful works by a masterful photographer.

Valda Bailey

J1A0947-Edit-940x626

I live in East Sussex although I grew up on the island of Jersey. I still retain an affinity for seascapes and coastal views even though I no longer have a beautiful beach on my back doorstep.

My approach to photography is greatly informed by my background in painting and I use in-camera multiple exposure and ICM (intentional camera movement) to blur detail and abstract shapes in the landscape.

I am driven by an exploration of colour and form. My objective is to create multi-layered images that depict the subtleties of the landscape around us. I am more concerned with portraying an interpretation rather than a literal representation of what I see before me.

I have been fortunate to have been tutored by some highly talented and inspirational professionals, most notably Jay Maisel and the time spent with him and his impressive array of guest speakers in New York continues to influence the way I approach my work.

I enjoy trying to push the boundaries of what photography is about and I strive to produce work that has movement and energy. A pivotal moment for me was coming across the work of Chris Friel and subsequently being tutored in the alternative techniques needed to produce such results by Doug Chinnery.

I have been influenced by many great talents; some of my inspirations include afore-mentioned Jay Maisel, Chris Friel and Doug Chinnery. Also Susan Burnstine, Fay Godwin, Ernst Haas, Aaron Siskind, Andre Kertesz, Vivian Maier, Sarah Moon, Arnold Newman, Klavdij Sluban, Alexey Titarenko, Charlie Waite to name just a few. Painters whose work I particularly admire include Bonnard, Cezanne, Chagall, Diebenkorn, Kandinsky, Klee, Matisse, Rothko, Van Gogh Frankethaler and many others too numerous to mention.
