Fine Art Photography Awards – 2nd Edition Winners Announced!

Art is born out of passion. Fine Art photography is a perfect instrument, which allows a person to communicate with the world and share their vision. It results from the author’s deep sensitivity, a need to express feelings through image, a unique view of the surrounding reality. It can be spontaneous, but it can also be a conscious and deliberate manifesto.

J Henry Fair

“The vivid color photographs of J Henry Fair lead an uneasy double life as potent records of environmental pollution and as ersatz evocations of abstract painting…information and form work together, to devastating effect.” -Roberta Smith, The New York Times

Photographer J Henry Fair is best known for his Industrial Scars series, in which he researches our world’s most egregious environmental disasters and creates images that are simultaneously stunning and horrifying, and more closely resemble abstract paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe and Jackson Pollock than what the collective views as reality.

Portfolio n°194 – Les explorations du “Waow”

Julia Deville, entrepreneuse active avec son mari Michel, ne se contente pas de gérer le trois-mâts «Waow» pour partager son bonheur avec tous ses heureux passagers. Tout naturellement, cette photographe affirmée sur terre ne pouvait vivre cette aventure qu’en emmenant ses objectifs sous l’eau.

Macro Photography by Henrik Spranz

In conversation with Henrik Spranz
Vienna-based wildlife and nature photographer Henrik Spranz specialises in macro photography with more than a touch of magic realism. It’s not by accident that his world takes us on a flight of fancy into a different, more ethereal place, and gives him a creative break from the day job.
Interview by Nick Smith
