Influenced by both fashion photographers and internet bloggers, New York native photographer Chloe Rice gives photojournalism a unique editorial feel.

But in addition to specific artists and authors, it is easy to see from her photos that she could acknowledge the entire world as her inspiration.

Chloe sees trees as “bird umbrellas” and rain clouds as “just parts of the sky that like to laugh until they cry”. In her mind cars all smile and “everything looks prettier with eyelashes". Luckily, Chloe has a series of cameras to capture all of this imagination that she sees.

Chloe’s photos both ask you to remain innovative and inspired, to infinity and beyond!

James Carbone’s life is a study of cultures that’s expressed through his passion for photography. Carbone was born in Los Angeles, Calif. From an early age Carbone read through the books of great photographers: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Mary Ellen Mark. “Seeing all those great images started my obsession with photography,” Carbone says.

For the past ten years Carbone has studied under Mary Ellen Mark, a world-renown documentary photographer. The two started working together at Rockport College in Maine and have continued at Pacific Center Northwest in Seattle and El Centro Fotografico Manuel Alvarez Bravo Center in Oaxaca, Mexico. Since 2000, he has documented the day-to-day life of the Lopez family, pepenadores (literally “sorters”) who struggle to survive by scavenging plastic bottles in a garbage dump. He is currently collecting the photos for an upcoming book.

His work continues with a chain of newspapers and magazines in Los Angeles and in the San Bernardino Counties. In every picture, Carbone uses composition to interpret reality and capture it in an image that resonates with his audience. “Every time I shoot I try to create an instant connection,” Carbone said. “I like to get close to people. When I’m right next to them, there’s a connection. They trust me, and that’s how I can build a really true image of their humanity.”

John Perello (Jon One) was born in New York's Harlem neighborhood to parents from the Dominican Republic. Growing up in Harlem, his introduction to street art began at an early age, when he would see graffiti and tags on subway cars and city walls. When he was 17 he entered the world of graffiti with his childhood friend "White Man," tagging his name Jon with the numbers 156 on walls and trains in his neighborhood. He said, "The subway is a museum that runs through the city."

In 1984, he founded the graffiti group 156 All Starz, in order to bring together their passion for painting trains at night and to help forget about their problems, including drug use. At this time, he met the artist Bando, who was living in New York. Following an invitation from Bando, JonOne moved to Paris in 1987.

He began his work as a painter on canvas in a workshop at the Hospital Ephemeral, a literal hospital building that became a squatting place for artists, located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. Here, he painted with the artists A-One, Sharp, Ash, and Jayone Skki. Soon, he made a name for himself in Parisian artistic circles through his work on canvas and the exhibitions he held, including one in 1990 at Gallery 45 Gleditsch in Berlin and the exhibition Graffiti Paris, at rue Chapon in Paris.

At an Artcurial auction on June 6, 2007, Match Point, a large canvas by JonOne made at the Hospital Ephemeral in 1993, was bought by a New York collector for €24,800, a record sale for the artist. This auction was also the highest bid ever obtained in France for a work of graffiti art.
