Ada Trillo is a Philadelphia-based artist who was born and raised on the Mexican/American border. She had long wanted to do a body of work which focused on the social problems in Mexico to raise awareness and try to make a difference.

Several years ago, she was afforded the opportunity to capture a series of photographs centering on the lives of prostitutes in her hometown of Juarez, Mexico. This series was meant to depict and problematize the adversity these women must overcome in their daily lives. She discovered that the majority of the girls in the brothels are not from Juarez but from different parts of the country who had arrived in Juarez with the hopes of emigrating to the US. Many of them arrived with their families and were left behind. Others had been abducted.

Ada wants to emphasize that she likes these women, and wants others to understand their circumstances. They have no healthcare and no access to rehabilitation. If they cannot attract clients, they go without food. Ada is carrying out this project because she wants to document an ugly reality that must be exposed. She also hopes to raise funds for the nuns to help more girls and to collaborate with the Coalition Against Trafficking Women, an international organization dedicated to protecting human rights. This series and experience has greatly humbled her and I hope that it will have an impact, moving viewers to want to make a difference as well.

A few years ago Jim Harmer was a law student in Florida, and a passionate photographer on the side.  He started his blog, Improve Photography, while pretending to listen to his law school professors, and it changed his life.  

Before long, millions of photographers from around the world were visiting his blog and he became a full-time photographer.  Although he did finish law school and passed the bar to be an attorney, he dedicated all his time to photography and his blog.

Now, over a million photographers follow him on social media, he travels the world multiple times per year teaching completely free (yep, really) workshops for readers of Improve Photography, and he has been ranked in the top 20 photographers in the United States.  

Photography has been a dream come true for him, and he loves it.

Josh Coombes is a UK-based hairdresser and when he started to reach out to the homeless in his city and offer them free haircuts, he started the hashtag #dosomethingfornothing. It wasn’t long before he decided to take this idea to more than just his native city.

The idea is that as the hashtag and online presence grow, others will be inspired to ‘do something for nothing’. Whether that may be to people sleeping rough or basically anyone in need of some love.

He recently collaborated with US-based street photographer and educator Valerie Jardin. They took to the streets of New York City to offer haircuts, compassion and interaction with a community often disregarded in our culture.

Born in the rural town of Hammanskraal, South Africa in 1974 and having grown up on several farms since then, Alastair McLachlan’s early work was particularly influenced by his “sense of place”, by the land itself and the primary elements of fire, earth, water and air.

Living on a farm in Zwartkops, on the Hennops river made him increasingly aware and alarmed by what seemed a ruthless and ill conceived invasion by industry and development – large tracks of land and vegetation seemed to disappear overnight – it was the scale, rate and sheer disregard for beauty, as evidenced by the proliferation of uniform cinder block houses and corrugated factories that scared him. What resulted was a series of “underground adventure installations” – rescued tree roots hung from ceilings in darkened spaces, reminiscent of fairground horror houses, designed to be investigated by torchlight.

In 1996 he began documenting Drive-ins around the country – an intriguing counterpoint to human endeavour but with the same vestige remnants of neglect. In 2000 he exhibited a series of “Fireworks!” – cathartic, mixed media works dealing with a sense of loss and cultural memory cycles at the Generator Art Space in Newtown. He was subsequently invited to participate in the “Tour guides of the inner city” art intervention program under the auspices of the “Urban Futures 2000” conferences. By the light of a projector strapped to the top of a pink bus, and showing homegrown video art on neglected spaces and building within the city, he found new inspiration.

Given the chance to live in Johannesburg, he decided to investigate the heart of the matter, so to speak, and made the 19th floor of the Lister Medical Building his home. From this vantage point and over more than 12 years he witnessed and tried to understand and make sense of Johannesburg.

Fadi BouKaram was born and raised in Beirut and never wanted to be a photographer. Growing up in a war-torn country, photos often were -- and still are -- the only remnant of the many people who don't exist anymore. These people unwittingly became mythical, for each photo of them hid fantastical stories that only the adults lived and told; it was magic.

But magic wears off with age, and a strictly scientific education, graduate degrees in Engineering and Business, and a corporate career wiped out most of what was left of it. It wasn't until he hit my thirties that he realized how much he needed photography; both as a therapy tool and as a way to discover oddities within the mundane.

In 2013 a group of photographers from around the world, including Fadi, started the Observe Collective. It was borne out of a 'common fascination with watching and documenting the diverse humanity that surrounds us.' Aside from this shared interest, he can't but be extremely grateful to these now-14 talented individuals, for their support, friendship, and for shaping my photographic education.

Catherine Just is an award winning photographer, artist and mentor living in Los Angeles, California with her son, Max. She travels the globe capturing the Breath, Heartbeat and Pulse of the planet with her 4x5 camera, Polaroid, Pinhole and other alternative film cameras. Her career began in 1987 studying photography, film and video at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Catherine's work has been published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine, inside Oprah.com and PDN.com as well as galleries internationally including her most recent collaborative show in Paris, France.

Catherine believes that photography can be used to gather up evidence of what's living in-between the words and to document the unseen but deeply felt spaces and places within the internal and external landscape.

In 2016-2017 her personal projects, workshops and photo sessions took her to Paris, Cannes and Antibes, France,  Marrakech, Morocco,  Rome and Montecastello, Italy, Vancouver, B.C, Canada, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido and Teotihuacan, Mexico, NYC, Boston, Seattle, Sedona and San Diego, USA with plans to head to Barcelona and Mallorca, Spain, New Orleans, Santa Fe, Albequerque and other US and International destinations.  

She teaches workshops and courses both online and in person as well as creating images for highly visible creatives for their new albums, websites, books and creative projects.

Her most prized creation is her son Max Harrison who happens to have Down syndrome and teaches her the most valuable tool to creativity is love. They are working on a collaborative photography project, film and book that will be shown around the world as a way to educate and advocate that Max, and people like him are valuable and unique individuals and not just a diagnosis.

Catherine is currently putting together Pop-Up Art show events in Los Angeles, Barcelona and Paris. Her fine art is sold online in limited editions.

An internationally published and award winning photo artist from Ukraine now based in New York, Anya Anti has been into photography since 2009. She’s always been a creative person – as a child she was good at painting and crafts. As her passion for art grew she fell in love with photography and started shooting the world around her. As a self-taught photographer, she gained all her knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. A year-and-a-half later, she started creating fine art surrealistic female portraits, which became her preferred genre and a hallmark of her work.

Installations, costumes and Photoshop manipulation help her to embody her fantasies into a finished piece of art. She shoots mostly with old vintage manual lenses like Helios and Petzval. Their imperfections help her be more creative and achieve that dreamy effect.

As a workshop instructor, she has already taught in different countries. She has showcased her work at exhibitions and been published all around the globe. In 2015 she was the lucky winner of a Broncolor GenNEXT sponsorship.

Anya is a dreamer. Photography is not only what she loves and what she does, it’s also a gentle and romantic side of her. It's a reflection of her deep emotions, passion for unknown and craving for beauty.

Ken Hermann’s images are pathways, connecting us to micro worlds and challenging us to rethink ideas of photographic representation. Ken doesn’t worry about trends, staying true to his point of view as an image-maker. It’s exciting to see a young photographer with such a strong singular vision and approach.

Passionate about individuals and their unique histories, he explores the fragile balance between people and their environment, between tradition and modernity. Ken’s photography seamlessly weaves cultural and political content, blending documentary and cinematic portraiture. His application of lighting, combining artificial with natural, takes the images into a surreal space, creating dreamlike visions of everyday people.

Laura Pannack’s art focuses on social documentary and portraiture, and seeks to explore the complex relationship between subject and photographer.

She is driven by research led, self-initiated projects that push her both as an artist and as an individual. She needs to question what she doesn’t understands and gain access to worlds closed off to her. She is drawn to adventure, and wants to roam and play with the limitations and dynamics of photography as an art and as an act.

She largely shoots on analogue film allowing the process to be organic rather than being predefined by fixed ideas, thus removing additional pressure on the sitter.

She tries to understand the lives of those she captures, and to present them creatively. She’s a firm believer that time, trust and understanding is the key to portraying subjects truthfully, as such, many of her projects develop over several years.

This particular approach allows a genuine connection to exist between sitter and photographer, which in turn elucidates the intimacy of these very human exchanges. Her images aim to suggest the shared ideas and experiences that are entwined in each frame that she shoots.

Her work aims to tell and inspire stories and she wants to connect and emotionally engage with viewers.

David Patrick Valera is a professional artist (photographer/digital-cinematographer/cameraman) based in Los Angeles. “I grew up in Silverlake, CA.” Not the Forbes Magazine hippest neighborhood known for an invasion of Teslas, horizontal wood fencing and lumber-sexuals, but the mid-city graffiti urban grit and grime it once was back in the 70’s-80’s.” A latch-key kid, David would jump on his BMX and ride down Sunset Blvd., slaloming around Hollywood street walkers, hair-bands, and the undesirables through the yet to be gentrified regions of Southern California. “Urban life is a part of my upbringing and I always wanted to document those unique, chance moments I came across during my neighborhood expeditions.”

David’s personal projects concentrate on “Street Photography”, which he has exhibited in galleries Internationally and across the Los Angeles region.  He has been interviewed and his photographs has been featured in Lens Culture, Street Photography Magazine, LA Times SoCal Moments, Lenscratch, The Candid Frame Showcase and Art Photo Feature.

David is currently an adjunct instructor at Otis College of Art and Design as well as a contributing photographer for L.A. Music Blog and L.A. Record Magazine.

David’s creativity doesn’t stop there, with over 20 years of Academy winning and nominated film credits, he is currently an Artistic Supervisor/Head Cameraman at a major Hollywood Studio.

Omar Z Robles is an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer based in NYC. His interest in storytelling began with one man: Marcel Marceau. The legendary mime actor taught him how to interpret the world through subtle but riveting movements. Those movements that he acquired as a student in Paris, he employs today in his photo series of ballet dancers.

But before juxtaposing the clean lines of dancers against rugged city landscapes, Robles was shooting celebrities, athletes, artists, politicians and city dwellers for The Chicago Tribune’s Hoy, Metro San Juan, Latino Leaders and for his own street photography portfolio.

In New York City, he transformed the aesthetic of his street photography by substituting the New Yorker with the New York dancer. Robles directed the dancers to tell stories with their bodies as he had learned from Marceau. The results were an army of miniature stories as told by the gentle flow of the dancers’ bodies. These stories were later passed on by local and international media. (Mashable, Instagram’s Blog, The Phoblographer, The Huffington Post, The Daily Mail, Design Taxi and Harpers Bazaar).

He is grateful to the dance community and to his supporters – 220,000 Instagram followers and counting. His social media acumen has made him an influencer for Fujifilm, Gap, Esprit, The Guatemala Tourism Board, Esquire Magazine and other fantastic brands.

When he’s not spelunking the city, he’s at home with his wife, enjoying a steaming espresso cup – and editing his photos.

Bryan Shih is a photojournalist and former contributor to the Financial Times and National Public Radio in Japan. He has a masters degree from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and was a Fulbright Scholar in Japan. His work on the Black Panthers led to his selection for the New York Times inaugural portfolio review in 2013 and garnered one of the highest rankings among entries in the LensCulture 2015 Portrait Awards competition.

His book, The Black Panthers: Portraits from an Unfinished Revolution (co-authored with Dr. Yohuru Williams) was published this year by Nation Books, and work from the series will be shown at the Oakland Museum of California, the Queens Museum, and the New York Public Library Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party.

Most recently, he has been working in larger format black and white, usually taking just a few exposures of each subject. His work, especially on the Black Panthers, centers on documentary portraiture that probes the boundary between journalism and fine art with subjects who share acute experiences and states of mind. He built trust with these “hidden” subjects, and through their experiences, explores the relationship between images and words in telling lean yet complex and rich stories that address universal subjects and themes.

George Nobechi is a Tokyo-born, Japanese/Canadian photographer. He graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in History/International Relations, which has fostered an interest in life in different regions of the world. When he was 19 his father suddenly passed away, changing the course of his life and informing his future work; he left Vancouver and supported himself and his family with a 14-year career in the business world in Tokyo and New York. In 2008 he embarked on a solo journey around the world through 14 countries on six continents; his quest was to find peace with the death of his father. It was at this time that his interest in photography began.

In 2015, Nobechi decided to leave his career and studied photography under National Geographic icon Sam Abell. With Abell's mentorship, Nobechi worked with numerous artists at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and established their first Japan expeditions. Since then he has continued to journey freely, but with purpose, making new work centered around quiet moments that are inspired by his longing to re-connect with life in the wake of his father's death.

In 2016, Nobechi received numerous awards for his work, which was selected to international group shows in Texas, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Oregon. He also enjoyed some major breakthroughs in winning a Gold Prize in the Tokyo International Foto Awards and being named a finalist in Photo Lucida's "Critical Mass." Nobechi now splits his time between the expansive desert landscape of southern Arizona and the quiet countryside of Japan.

Kevin Weinstein combines the worlds of photojournalism and artistic photography to capture memories, moods, split-second moments, and momentous events.

He’s been doing it since the darkroom ages. The instructions he was taught back then for developing photos has stuck with him: “If it is too light, add time; if it is too dark, take away time.” But in the years since, as film gave way to digital, Kevin has learned that time cannot be added or subtracted—only seized or lost. His art as a documentarian, storyteller and photographer is all about seizing the moment, and the meaning within that moment. Kevin is a master at stripping away the nonessential and capturing the essence of a person, place or point in time. The results: emotive portraits and candids, lively magazine spreads, and images that command attention amid the visual clutter that defines the digital age.

Before founding Kevin Weinstein Photography in 2001, Kevin spent 12 years in newspaper and magazine journalism. On the newspaper side, he worked for the Sun (Bremerton, Washington), the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the Albuquerque Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Tribune, and the Sun in Illinois. His magazine credits include US Weekly, People, Hollywood Reporter and Mother Jones. Celebrity subjects include Quentin Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez, Stacy Keibler, Smeezingtons producer Ari Levine, and Christoph Waltz, among others.

Through Kevin Weinstein Photography, Kevin became a sought-after event photographer, and as his reputation and referrals spread beyond the Chicago market, he went on to shoot high-profile private parties and special events in Los Angeles, New York, and exotic and cosmopolitan destinations around the globe. Kevin Weinstein Photography has since come full circle, bringing Kevin back to his roots as an editorial and street photographer.

He is a Golden Globe nominee, a 2007 NAACP Image Award winner for best writer in a comedy series, as well as a winner of the 2007 AFI TV Program of the Year Award.

LeRoi served as a producer and writer on “The Chris Rock Show,” for which he won an Emmy, a Cable Ace Award, and received five Emmy Award nominations. He is an NAACP Awards Best Director nominee for his work on Everybody Hates Chris, and has directed segments for the “77th Annual Academy Awards,” as well as for the “Orlando Jones Show.”

Major motion picture credits include producing and co-writing “Head of State” and “Down to Earth,” as well as producing cult-favorite, “Pootie Tang.”

Photography for him is meditation, memory, and connection. Taking time to consider what something is. Why something is. Who someone is. For LeRoi photography freezes the fractions of sections in between all of the things he sees and does and holds still all of the places and people he passes by and gives him a moment to consider them, inspect them, appreciate them, and remember them. 

While he has a focus on people, and exploring the breadth of their condition and their ability to connect to the world around them, as well as their ability to connect with him, he also ventures into architecture as abstract, and it’s collision as form, as still life. Much of his work grows out of a strongly held sense of solitude and a desire to connect to the things around him. He has no hard and fast rules about purity or constraints around editing an image. He does what he feel. And show it. He assumes that his body of work will take on a character as it grows, as he is it’s singular filter.

Originally from Chicago, LeRoi currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
