Castro Frank is one of today’s premier contemporary street photographers. His style fuses a journalistic approach with an artistic eye to create imagery that is raw and speaks powerfully of our time. His compassion and empathy for the disenfranchised within our society has prompted him to capture them in such a way which attempts to restore the humanity and dignity of those often forgotten. Castro turns his lens toward systematic and societal issues that plague our nation i.e. homelessness, prostitution, poverty, drug abuse, and the plights of immigrants here in America.

Castro’s original photographs have been collected by high profile celebrities, collectors and establishments like FOX and CBS. Written publicity includes articles in the LA Times, Huffington Post, Daily News and London’s Hunger Magazine to name a few. He has been interviewed and done live segments with Telemundo and selected as fine art photographer to kick off the Los Angeles Council District 7 public art initiative “Museo Aire Libre” with his bus bench public installation.

Euan Forrester lives in Vancouver, BC and spent 9 months photographing 2 trailbuilders as they built a new mountain bike trail from scratch.

He chose 20 photos and made big prints of them that he hung along the trails. He found a place that printed them with UV-resistant ink on a hard plastic material and then laminated them. It took some back-and-forth to make prints that are visible in the dim light of the forest. 

Forrester enjoys photographinghow people in different subcultures curiously and excitedly work hard at things like that.

Known for her intense and sensitive work, Lynn Johnson has been capturing the subtleties of the human condition for 35 years. A regular contributor to publications such as National Geographic, Johnson brings a fresh perspective to fearsome issues—the scourge of landmines, the erosion of threatened languages, rape in the US military ranks, the daily challenge for African women of carrying water or the dangers of global zoonotic disease. Her compassionate photographs honor everyday people and their stories.

A teacher as well as a photographer, Johnson hopes to promote dialogue and ameliorate prejudice. Her Master’s thesis as a Knight Fellow at Ohio University, Hate Kills, chronicles the toll of hate crimes on American society. She works with National Geographic Photo Camps, using her medium to help at-risk youth around the world share their own voices. At Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, Johnson is developing a mentoring program for graduate students in the Multimedia, Photography and Design department.

Her work has been honored by World Press Photo, the Open Society Institute and the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, among others, as well as by her fellow photographers at The Photo Society.
