Safi Alia Shabaik discovered art and photography at an early age when her mother enrolled her in a pinhole camera class at the California Museum of Science and Industry. She attended UCLA, earning her B.A. in Fine Art with honors. Since then, she has worked as a fashion stylist and photographic documentarian and has lived in both New York and Los Angeles. Post-college, while still in Los Angeles, Catherine Opie became her mentor and taught her the art of large scale color printing in her custom-built darkrooms. While in New York, Safi became fashion stylist, photographic documentarian, personal assistant, travel companion, and confidante to the legendary icon, Ms. Grace Jones, in her personal and public life.  Safi was given free rein to photograph anytime they were together.

Throughout her life, her work has been about identity, persona, subculture and the humanity of all people. Her subject matter moved from the public realm to the private, when she became a caregiver for her father who was beginning to exhibit symptoms of the disease. Personality Crash: Portraits of My Father Who Suffered from Advanced Stages of Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, and Sundowner’s Syndrome, her most recent series, is a riveting, collaborative body of work that explores the human condition from an intimate perspective, focusing on her father’s journey up until his death. These intense, beautiful black and white images comprise the artist’s highly personal story but also serve as a universal reminder of what it means to be human.

Sam Abell, Arthur Meyerson, and George Nobechi recently shared a “buddy trip”, traveling through the heart of Japan via train. While George lives in Japan, Arthur and Sam have frequently traveled to the country on assignment and to teach workshops. However, this trip was a very personal one, which allowed these three friends to do more than photograph together, but to also share a wealth of unique cultural and personal experiences.

Sam Abell is an American photographer known for his frequent publication of photographs in National Geographic. He first worked for National Geographic in 1967 and is one of the more overtly artistic photographers among his magazine peers.[citation needed] Sam Abell's style of photography is documentary in the sense that his major avenue, the National Geographic magazine, is a publication of record. Abell has said that he could be perfectly happy with his photography even if his only subject was light itself.

Arthur Meyerson is recognized as one of America’s finest photographers. Since 1974, this native Texan has traveled throughout the world, creating award-winning advertising, corporate and editorial photographs, as well as an extensive body of fine art imagery. A three-time winner of Adweek’s “Southwest Photographer of the Year” award, he is on Communication World’s list of top 10 corporate photographers and was named one of the 30 best advertising photographers by American Photo.

George Nobechi is a Japanese/Canadian Fine Art and Documentary Photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. His bicultural upbringing has influenced his vision that simultaneously makes him an insider and outsider to both Western and Eastern cultures. His contemplative work is often described as depicting a warm feeling of humanity.

Sara Terry is an award-winning documentary photographer and filmmaker known for her work covering post-conflict stories, and a 2012 Guggenheim Fellow for her long-term project, “Forgiveness and Conflict: Lessons from Africa.” Her first long-term post-conflict work, “Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace,” led her to found The Aftermath Project in 2003 on the premise that “War is Only Half the Story.” An accomplished speaker on aftermath and visual literacy issues, her lectures include a TEDx talk, “Storytelling in a Post-Journalism Word,” and several appearances at The Annenberg Space for Photography.

She has directed and produced two feature-length documentaries, Fambul Tok (2011) and FOLK (2013). Fambul Tok, about a groundbreaking grass-roots forgiveness program in Sierra Leone, premiered at SXSW in 2011, and grew out of her photo project, “Forgiveness and Conflict: Lessons from Africa.” It was supported by the Sundance Documentary Institute and Chicken and Egg and was hailed by Paste magazine as one of the best 100 documentaries of all time.

Terry became a photographer and filmmaker after a long, award-winning career in print and public radio. She is working on her third documentary, “That’s How We Roll,” about mobile home parks and the affordable housing crisis.

Roland Miller, a Chicago native, studied photography at Utah State University earning his B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees. For 14 years, he taught photography at Brevard Community College (now Eastern Florida State College) in Cocoa, Florida, where he was first exposed to many nearby NASA launch sites. He then taught at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois for six years before becoming dean of its Communication Arts, Humanities and Fine Arts division in 2008. Miller retired from higher education in 2018 to work full-time on his aerospace photography.

In 2016, Miller’s project, Abandoned in Place: Preserving America’s Space History, documenting the deactivated and repurposed space launch and test facilities around the United States was published by the University of New Mexico Press.

Images from Miller’s Space Shuttle documentary project, Orbital Planes, have been exhibited at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, Florida and at The National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida

Miller is currently completing a project, Interior Space, with Italian Astronaut, Paolo Nespoli, to collaboratively photograph the interior of the International Space Station.
