Elise’s winning image at Life Framers ‘THE HUMAN BODY’.

“The body is the instrument of our hold on the world” – Simone de Beauvoir

Amongst a series of dark imagery, Elise’s shot of cascading thighs stands out in their degree of sensitivity. Pastel tones capture the beauty in imperfection.

Rob Lawson was awarded a bronze medal at the One Eyeland awards for this series exploring the tiny world inside mixers.

Rob designed the series to intrigue and emphasise the craft of making a ‘proper’ cocktail. The series was also awarded a winner at the 2017 AOP awards.

Beate Sonnenberg & Guy Farrow are victorious at the 11th International Color Awards!

Beate was nominated for work in her series “CityScapes” – Beate creates mini skyscrapers using blocks and then casts projections across the set. These projections were then lit from behind to denote the passing of day with elongated and nonexistent shadow forms.

Guy’s photograph of John Cleese in deep thought, presents the audience with a serious, concerned and almost frightened figure for whom is commonly known for his humor, joy and eccentric behavior. The juxtaposition in itself is a feat on its own. It received an honorable mention. Guy’s work for Bombardier and Remington were also among those nominated.

Rob shot this series for Treasury Wine Estates by creating a French artisan aesthetic using glassware/chairs/surfaces. TWE commissioned the shoot to promote their unique acquisition of various Champagne/Red/White wine estates across various regions of France.

We are proud to announce that Guy Farrow, Beate Sonnenberg and Rob Lawson made it through to the 2017 AOP nominations.
