AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH
CHRISTOPHE MEIREIS
BY JOSÉ JEULAND

"The French littoral has something old-fashioned, outdated, with its beach furniture, its carousels, its terraces which attract tourists, and at the same time, it is very endearing because it evokes our childhood memories, our vacations …"

At the heart of Meireis's approach, we find the constant presence of the human implicitly, as evidenced by his series on travelers or on former prisoners sentenced to death.

Inspired by the Düsseldorf school, for his personal work, he favors the use of the 4×5 Inch camera and the medium format, which impose slowness and rigor. These two constraints, Christophe Meireis, make them allies to serve his artistic approach.

#FAKE
DON'T ACCEPT PRETTY

BY MIEKE DOUGLAS

"Pretty photos of flowers from my garden or recycled gift-wrapping carefully arranged on my office scanner? Look again. One scene, two narratives.
A constructed reality. A small act of deceit.
'Special military operation to protect victims of genocide and abuse' or full-scale invasion and occupation of Ukraine? Another constructed reality. This one is more sinister."

Mieke Douglas is a Dutch and Canadian Photographic Artist living in London. She is known for her atmospheric lighting and surreal perspectives.  Mieke's work moves between fact and fiction and challenges the boundaries of photography and art.
Douglas has recently won several significant awards, including International Photography, Chromatic, Minimalist, Julia Margaret Cameron, Budapest International, and the British Photography Awards.  Mieke was also Shortlisted for the Alpha Female Award at the Sony World Photography Awards and the Association of Photographers Emerging Talent Awards and was a finalist in the BBA Photography Prize.

"VIBRATION IS AT THE HEART OF NATURE. MUSIC ALLOWS US TO FEEL IT." -Kurtz

BY ELLEN ROSENBERG

And suddenly the music stopped…
"Spending a lifetime photographing musicians in New Orleans and Philadelphia, I abruptly found my spirit and soul empty during the first 6 months of sheltering in place in 2020.Musicians and others were dying, and the ability to let their music transform my spirit into joy was gone. So, seeking other ways to heal my soul, I took long walks in nature and heard the whisper of the wind, calling me to find a feeling of inner peace."

Ellen Rosenberg currently divides her time between Philadelphia and New Orleans.
Rosenberg work has been shown in over 50 juried national art shows, as well as invitational and solo exhibitions. Ellen has exhibited her work throughout the United States. She recently had her work,' Sounds of Silence,' exhibited at the Ogden Southern Museum New Orleans as part of PhotoNola.

CREATING WITH
A MULTI-COLORED GUM METHOD
BY JACEK WASKO

"The multi-colored gum method is complicated, long-lasting, and laborious. Moreover, due to unpredictable final effects, it is a kind of mystery that you must discover step by step.
This is the significant difference that contrasts the technique of one hundred years ago with modern microprocessors and highly advanced technologies."

JACEK WASKO is an art conservator, painter, and fine art photographer, based in London.
"I have been interested in photography since the 1980s. In those days, I learned about alternative photographic techniques, especially the so-called gum bichromate.
In the 1990s, I made the first tests in this technique without any special results, and without giving up, I returned to this topic 15 years ago.
Currently, I work in this technique, and I am still experimenting because gum bichromate is a unique photographic process; like no other technique, it allows interference in the final creative process, which makes the final result very close to painting. The uniqueness of this technique lies in the combination of apparent simplicity (the sun itself is enough to illuminate the work and ordinary water to develop the photos). Then, with a complex process of selecting ingredients (gum arabic, potassium dichromate, and pigment in appropriate proportions), manual distribution of the photosensitive emulsion onto an adequately prepared substrate, and finally washing it out to give the work its final shape."

SMALL MOMENTS OF FREEDOM
BY TEODELINA DETRY

"In my images, I capture small moments of freedom. And through gestures, I try to turn silences into poetry. I seek to unveil the hidden and melancholic relationship that exists between things. In other words, inhabit with light those uninhabited spaces and evidence their sensitivity."

Teodelina Detry was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1975. She studied Art Direction at the Escuela de Creativos Publicitarios, Photography at the Andy Goldstein's School of Photography, and in 1997, she took several art-related courses at Parsons School of Design in New York.
During the past years, since 2017, Teodelina Detry has exhibited her work internationally, in various group exhibitions, including at the Tattersall De Palermo represented by Inés Miguens, at the Zona de Photo Gallery, at Mundo Nuevo Art Gallery, and at Otra Feria, at the Galería del Paseo in Manantiales, Uruguay.This year, 2022, Detry's work has been exhibited at the SPArte Fair in San Pablo, Brazil, represented by Mario Cohen Gallery.Detry's first photography book, "La Anémona es una flor que se abre al menor golpe de viento", ("The Anemone is a Flower that Opens Herself to the Slightest Touch of Wind," was published in Buenos Aires in 2020.

"THOSE WHO LIVE TO FORGET THEIR PAST LIVES TO DIE OF THEIR PAST"
BY IGOR ZEIGER

Truskavets was a thriving resort town in independent Ukraine and was an even more thriving resort location in soviet time to which people from the whole corners of the USSR came to rest. At the end of the USSR era, many huge hotels were built to accommodate tens of thousands of visitors. But the Soviet glory waned soon, and all those magnificent concrete buildings were left to stay dilapidated to remind the Ukrainian people that they were once part of the wast communist empire.
The buildings stayed there for decades as a symbol of the colonial regime. Then, during the years, when people wished to renovate the buildings or rebuild the area and started to discuss the subject, the Russian government struck as a power show act with the current war, trying to recover what was lost after USSR had fallen.

Igor Zeiger lives and works in Jaffa, Israel.
Zeiger started with documentary photography as an autodidact. He studied in Studio Gavra School of Photography in a class of Sagit Zluf Namir and graduated in 2012. His mentors included influential Israeli photographers such as David Adika, Gaston Zvi Ickowicz, and Nissan N. Perez.
In 2016, Igor's photograph was chosen as a poster photo for Paco Anselmi's documentary film "Karam: A Matter Of Karma," screened at TLVFest. Zeiger is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. He is also a member of the Israeli Association of Visual Artists and the Royal Photographic Society.
