Born in Chiang Mai in 1991. Tawanwad Wanavit (Tang) works as a professional cinematographer in a production company in Thailand. He first had a strong passion for street photography, which could be proven by many finalists and awards he has received over the past few years. Such as Miami Street Photography Festival. Street Photo San Francisco. London Street Photography Contest, etc.

Splashing flash.

Most of his works are presented by splashing flash techniques which eventually led him to join an international collective of street photographers called Full Frontal Flash. Besides street photography, he experimented with other areas of photography like conceptual photography. Monsters of The Shallow. A conceptual artwork showing strange human shapes and colors underwater. As Tang mentioned, the idea came from a feeling of escaping people who underwater are safe as a shelter where he could hide from any crisis. Today, Tang mainly creates street photography works. Also, he also experiments with passion in other areas of photography.

Paul Clarke (1959, Surrey, United Kingdom) makes photos and mixed media artworks. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Clarke investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us.

Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

Tactile nature.

His photos are notable for their perfect finish and tactile nature. This is of great importance and bears witness to great craftsmanship.

By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way. He tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

His works never shows the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality.

Social reality.

By focusing on techniques and materials. He considers making art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules and which should always refer to social reality.
His works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver.These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence

Since the end of the 1960s, Mario Cresci has been the Italian artist whose work has allowed the development of an experimental language specific to photography.

His complex work is rooted in the multidisciplinary studies he undertook in Venice in 1962. He was influenced by his encounters with the main artists of Arte Povera. In particular Pino Pascali, Eliseo Mattiacci, Yannis Kounellis and Alighiero Boetti, after his installation in Rome. in 1969.

1969.

In 1969, he produced the first Photographic Environment at the Il Diaframma gallery in Milan, exhibiting a thousand transparent cylinders containing a thousand photographs, also transparent.

In 1970, he was invited to his first Biennale in Venice; since then he has been invited again three times (1978, 1993, 1995).

In 1974 he moved to Matera – which was chosen to be the European Capital of Culture in 2017. Thus, he undertook a project that would become essential to the development of photography in Italy. In particular with the publication of Matera, immagini e documenti. A book which is today considered the first photographic work on urban cultural anthropology.

Give meaning to photography.

Later, Mario Cresci developed new themes and new experiments that earned him a prominent place among the Italian photographers who give meaning to photography. A photograph with its power to constantly shift our relationship to reality. Photograph which modifies the terms of the question, evoking an “illusory” form of naturalness.

Isn’t that the only question that perhaps validates the practice of photography, the question of the meaning of reality. To know how to represent it and how to imagine it? Mario Cresci answers this question in a remarkable way.

Samantha Everton is a Melbourne-based theatrical art photographer. She is known for her richly colored exploration of race, childhood and women, and her elaborate settings. Everton won first and third place at the 2010 Paris International Photography Prize. Featured in New Yorker Magazine in 2006. Then, she was shortlisted for the winning and highly recommended places of the Twenty-third McGregor Prize for Photography , in 2006.

Everton’s work.

Everton primarily works as a director on their photoshoots. Creating theatrical productions in front of the camera, then photographing them. But nothing happens by chance here. It is critically important that she controls every aspect of the materialization of her initial concept. Until the photographic image is printed with pigment-based inks on archival quality rag paper and the final framing. True to the realism of his work, Everton captures the images on traditional film using a medium format camera: “It is very important to me that the viewer believes in the image, so whatever you see, from the girl flying through the air to the tree growing through the ground, was actually there and was filmed in camera. Everton is reluctant to explain the narrative content and underlying symbolism in the works, preferring the viewer to respond from a personal perspective.

Andreas Gursky is perhaps the best-known member of an informal association of German artists. Under the tutelage of conceptual photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher. Gursky’s photos feature scenes involving huge amounts of information. Subtly improving and adjusting the structure of the overwhelming visual parameters. Gursky allows viewers to digest and consume more than we usually can with our eyes alone. His images are symbols of both contemporary life and the classic need for order.

Gursky began to digitally manipulate his prints as new photographic technologies were invented. Some technology including a framing system to hold large mounted photographs of the face attached to plexiglass. Then, Gursky even helped develop. Contained in such a frame, 99 Cent, 1999, is one of Gursky’s most iconic works and a clear example of his alteration of images to a totalizing effect. Changes such as the layout of the store’s product aisles. Adding a mirrored roof flattens the image and emphasizes an imposed formalistic structure. The viewer must accept the inauthentic (unknown) qualities of the scene in a seemingly objective recording of our world.
