David Quinn says, "Over the years, my interests have primarily centered on creating landscape and botanical images with an occasional venture into architectural and street photography. In many of my photographs I strive to evoke an emotion, raise an uncertainty or create a sense of movement either by isolating key elements or by blurring the subject matter.

My work has been exhibited in over 125 shows in 17 states and Spain, Turkey and Greece."

Deborah Sfez says, "I am a Visual Writer from Israel using words and images, My camera is my extended eye.

In my artistic practice I mainly focus on Photography and Video, For me Photography means a creative research. It is a tool in the process of creating an image. My work mainly deals with the ups and downs of Human Existence."


Sfez is an Israeli artist born in 1964, now working in Israel and Ivory Coast, focusing on the fields of Photography and Video in all their creative configurations.

She studied French and English Literature in Haifa University, Fashion Design in ESMOD Paris, and Scenery and Costume Design at Rakefet Levi school of Theatre Design in Tel Aviv.

Deborah has been exhibiting photography and video works in Israel, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, England and the U.S.A in the last five years, gained acknowledgment and wan several photography and art prizes.

Her work mainly focuses on the ups and downs of the human existence, she talks about the experience of existence, partnership, overcoming a sickness, fear of life, beauty of being a woman and the impossibility of being perfect. Photography, for her, means a creative research. She has started her photography research with a series of hundreds of self portraits in many different characters using heavy make up costumes and wigs to transform her looks. She started, later on, using these various self portraits in a more complex way as a part of larger photography or video Installations including text and sound written and composed by her.

VALANCE #1 by Debra Achen
HONORABLE MENTION
(Click on image for larger view)

Debra Achen says, "My "Outside Out" series is a study in spatial perception.

The images are taken from a perspective outside of a window looking through to the inside...and back outside through interior windows.

Part of my larger “Mixed Vantage” portfolio, these images are not composites or double exposures. Reflections on the foreground glass overlay the details of the interior space and window views. Without the reference of the foreground window panes and frames, the overlapping images become more surreal, some bordering on abstract.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, my passion for art began at a very young age. I moved to California to complete my BA in Visual Arts and for a number of years, painting and mixed media were my preferred creative mediums. Then the gift of a digital camera rekindled my love of photography. This coincided with a move to the scenic Monterey Peninsula, an environment that inspires my work today.

As a photographer, I am attracted to the underlying structure of things, and to the way the forces of nature – Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Gravity, Light, and Time - imprint the material world with their magic. Some of my images border on the abstract.

By extracting, isolating, or separating out" a certain element of a photographic subject, it becomes simplified to a more basic, fundamental form. Other work examines the relationship between objects, space, time, and light. Slow-capture images blur the borders between objects and the space that surrounds them. Movement of the subject or the camera adds the element of time, creating a more impressionistic interpretation of the subject."

FROSTED GLASS WINDOW 1 by Deb Achak
(Click on image for larger view)

Deb Achak says, "The semi-opacity of the frosted glass window reveals the quintessence of my subjects while acting as a physical and metaphorical shield of protection. These portraits capture the innate beauty, vulnerability, and soul of each woman without exposing their most sacred truths.

I approach the medium of photography a marriage of machine and meditation. My process is to stretch the capacity of my camera to create photographs that breathe with emotion and have a painterly quality to them."

The photographs of artist Deb Achak have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries throughout the United States and abroad, including Winston Wächter Fine Art in Seattle; Artspace Gallery and the New York Center for Photographic Arts in New York City; Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, VT; A. Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX, Blackbox Gallery in Portland, Oregon, and the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro, VT. In addition, her work is in the collection of the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in Santa Fe, NM. Achak’s photographs have been featured in many publications, including Fraction Magazine, Luxe Interiors and Design Magazine, Elle Decor, Domino, Apartment Therapy, and Lenscratch.

CLOUDY DAY by Don James
BEST SERIES
(Click on image for larger view)

Don James is a creator of abstract photographic images.

He finds inspiration in natural, industrial, and urban environments, being drawn to subjects that are rarely noticed by others.

They are pieces of man-made structures, details of common objects, or short-lived fragments of nature that are continuously sculpted by the elements. He has been influenced by the abstract photographs of Brett Weston, Aaron Siskind, and William Garnett, as well as images by Precisionist painters and photographers of the early twentieth century.

His photographic process is digital; however, he uses a minimal amount of post-processing, comparable to the basic manipulations he had done with his traditional darkroom prints.

Mr. James holds a degree in engineering from Cornell University, and a Masters from Loyola University in Baltimore. His photographs have appeared in solo and group exhibitions in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New York.

Eric M. Renard is a Los Angeles based Photographer. Born in New York, he attended school in the Riverdale, NY.

Eric spent his summers in Maine, where he was first exposed to photography and dark rooms. Eric’s passion for photography was reignited at Tufts University in Boston, where he studied under Sigfried Halus.
After graduating, Eric moved to San Francisco, as an architectural photographer before moving to Los Angeles.

Eric’s unique exposure to both urban and rural living can be seen throughout his work, as he is equally at home in both settings. Whether working in black and white or vibrant colors, his urban cityscapes and rural landscapes often reflect an eerie sense of peace and quiet, rarely portraying more than one or two people.

AFTER BREAKFAST by Eva Deitch
(Click on image for larger view)

Eva Deitch says, "My photographs are made with immediacy, when my awareness makes scenes, objects, and gestures, known. I then work with what has caught my attention until the action, the light or the charge of the moments energy has passed.

For me, the camera’s most fundamental attribute, as a tool to freeze time, moving life into stillness, is key. In turn, stillness and pause is what I encourage in the viewer. This is not intended to leave the viewer empty or void of thought and emotion, but instead galvanize attention towards these fundamental ingredients of being human. 

The photographs I make explore place as both a physical and psychological space. I use the practice of travel, poetry and contemplation as the impetus to engage photographically with what is both a tangible and existential experience."

Eva Deitch is a full-time editorial and documentary photographer living in the Hudson Valley region of New York. She graduated with a degree in Photography from Columbia College Chicago and is an 2018 Alumni of the Documentary and Visual Journalism Program at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Her work focuses on portraiture and stories that speak to a sense of place, both tactile and unseen. 

Deitch has photographed for numerous publications such as The New York Times, Departures magazine and the Wall Street Journal, as well as, non-profits, institutions and commercial clients with art and environmentally focused missions.

LITTLE GIRL BIG DREAMS by Harry Longstreet
(Click on image for larger view)

Harry Longstreet says, "No one just takes up space. The human condition is an entire canvas of thoughts, emotions and reactions to circumstances. In my photography I try to capture the truth about diverse people and how they live and reflect their respective spaces.

My subjects never know they’ve been photographed. I don't set-up or pose any shot and never employ anything but available light.

I retired after twenty-five years as a writer, producer and director of filmed entertainment, primarily for television.

In the last ten years I’ve had a number of one-man shows and my work has appeared in more than two hundred national and international juried exhibitions.

I’m twice a Single Image Merit Award recipient from Black & White Magazine and twice a Single Image Merit Award winner from Color Magazine.  In 2013, I was awarded the FIAP Gold Medal (monochrome) in the International Varna Salon, and in 2014, I took Best in Show in the annual CVG Washington State competition and First Place (Photography) in the 2017 competition.

Ira Weinschel says, "These images are from my series, Prague Revisited. I lived in Prague in the fall of 1994, five years after the “Velvet Revolution” that forced the Communists to relinquish power—a time of optimism and uncertainty. It was a place of beauty and mystery that resonated deeply with me. I’ve returned to Prague several times in recent years to make these images, exploring the built environment and revisiting the past."

Ira Weinschel is an artist living in Austin, TX. His work explores themes of memory and loss, depicting mood as well as moment with expressive color and subtle detail.

DREAM by Jaime Greenberg
(Click on image for larger view)

Jaime Greenberg says, "I write with words and light. I am a writer and a photographer, and I use both mediums to unravel the mysteries inside my own head and heart. If my internal life can connect in some way with your internal life... that’s the most beautiful thing I can imagine.

I think a lot about the dreamy, magical world – accessed through reflections and light beams – that exists beside our own everyday lives. The idea of it fills me with wonder, but also an ache of sadness. Just out of reach… Everything is here and gone at the same time. Photography is my way of documenting that world of imagination and emotions, and holding it still – if only for a shutter click.  

I live in Boca Raton, Florida, with my husband, two daughters, cat and dog."

LOOKS DO KILL by Jamie Price
(Click on image for larger view)

Jamie Price says, "I am a queer visual artist from Chicago, currently living in Paris. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts in Photography from Northern Illinois University in 2012. My favorite mediums are photography, printmaking, and woodwork. Common themes within my work question societal behaviors and the sociopolitical in a way that creates a visual dissonance.
 
These three images are part of two of my series’, “Femininity”, and “Sapines”. In “Femininity” I explore the stark comparison between femininity’s multiple forms and the feminine culture that the media portrays. “Sapines” guides the viewer to question aspects of the Christmas tree, what makes a plant acceptable to be inside our homes, how are these trees being discarded, and what happens next? In both these series there’s an underlying theme of capturing the urban ephemeral and creating new relations between these objects and the viewers."
