Nigel, travelling with his long term collaborator and 1st assistant Dave, as well as Erwin de Boer from Real Deal TV made the long trip to Tokyo to produce a series of personal still and motion work. The work is based on the wearing of individual and subculture clothing.

This one “Tokyo’s Harajuku girls” was named because of the 90’s gathering place where it all began. It focuses on the girls in real environments, going about their daily lives in wonderful, unique and cartoonish fashions.

Elise’s latest personal project plays with ever-evolving make-up trends and the team decided to really push the boat out!

REAL gold was applied to the model’s skin for a series of intense close-ups, creating an intensified highlights. #goldie

Beate follows on from the success of ‘Somewhere in Between’ by expanding on the award-nominated series.

A moment in time, however fleeting is encapsulated using mirrors and translucent coloured perspex. Lighting is positioned in such a way to create, momentary shadow structures.

The series is as much reflective on the human experience as it is a visual delight.

 

‘Beneath the Veil’ is Elise’s most recent personal project with a focus on body curves, textures, and tone.

The use of a veil symbolises barriers and change. Close crops of the model dominate this series and build on the intimacy that surrounds marriage.

Elise continues her exploration of the human form with this latest series of skin close-ups.

This time the models entangled limbs were wearing pale coloured tights to create repetition & symmetry through the shape.

Oli was awarded a winner in the hugely competitive ‘Personal Work’ category at the PDN for this series exploring people at crossroads.

Drawing inspiration from some of the pioneers for Chicago street photography; Harry Callahan and Ray Metzker, his new collection continues the long tradition of documenting people within urban environments. The series was shot over a 12 month period across multiple US cities; LA, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, New York and Atlanta.

With his shoestring budget, Oli stayed in hostels and spent his days walking the city streets with a minimal kit, to discover the subtle differences between people and places. Driven by the endless chance and a prevalent political crossroads for the American people.

We are all looking forward to the ceremony on the 25th June!

Marco takes his love for the hyper-real to Bombay Beach Biennale!

The collage created out of life-size cutouts is symbolic of the rich history of Bombay Beach and the Salton Sea, which in its heyday was a glamorous Hollywood destination.

Today, due to an environmental catastrophe that polluted the lake, almost overnight the town went from boom to bust making it feel almost like a post-apocalypic disaster zone

Elise draws performances out of her models for this series titled ‘Chanel I Love You’.

It focuses on the craft and beauty of Chanel jewellery, sitting juxtaposed by the provocative and high energy characters.

From Erik Almas’s personal series focussing on insecurities and the stigma around body features.

Eriks personal challenge to capture emotion, with a focus on the visual is a step away from much of his commercial work, which is based in the realm of the conceptual.

Erik said of the project “It was both a gift and a joy to focus so intently upon emotion.”
