Yuri Yasuda

Originally from Japan, Yuri Yasuda is a portrait photographer with an impressive portfolio and curriculum.

His character is quite enigmatic, he often denies the spotlight. This eclectic and rather mysterious environment is an important factor in many of his works. While many professional portrait photographers try to create a specific idea, somehow specific to portraying the spirit of their object, Yasuda strives to become a part of his own work. In a way, the viewer is able to understand a part of the artist within these photographs. Colors and unmistakable angles of Yasuda are part of this energy that is present within the images.

Unlike his homeland, Yuri Yasuda’s work is affected by a very interesting and eye-catching contrast between old and new, traditional and modern, classic and high-tech. I think you can say that Yasuda is obviously very personally and emotionally present within his own work.

In addition, Yuri Yasuda is known for often adding a certain amount of surrealism to his photographs, in order to compensate for the art and other tools.

Ciril Jazbec

I was born in Slovenia in 1987. As a kid I dreamed of becoming a photographer for National Geographic. Then I forgot all about it.

I studied Management at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana before moving to London to study photography. I obtained my MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication in 2011.​ Since then, I’ve been working as an independent freelance photographer.

In 2013, I received the Leica Oskar Barnack Award for a photo story called Waiting to Move. In the same year, I also received an award at the Les Rencontres d’Arles, for my photo story On Thin Ice, which also won MAGNUM 30 under 30 in 2015.

I’ve been working as a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine since 2014. So much for childhood dreams ever being naive.

Lee Towndrow

Senior Visual Effects Artist at The Mill.

I started out as a designer making album covers. I was moved by Cunningham’s All is Full of Love to learn Flame and quickly became a lead artist with a roster of clients. After a number of years running sessions in the suite, I set out to broaden my mastery of the image in the physical world. I worked in Buenos Aires on fine art installations, and became an award-winning photographer (TIME Magazine, Fast Company) and a cinematographer (HBO’s Going Clear, Ivory Tower). I refined my eye for lighting, composition and story. Excited by the rapid developments in CG, I expanded my skills in Nuke and Virtual Reality.

Since moving to New York City in 2010, I have worked with such fine studios as The Mill, Artjail, MPC, and Method Studios, both as a Visual Effects Supervisor and Senior Compositor. I love to solve difficult technical problems and make beautiful pictures with smart clients.

Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams was a masterful photographer and a lifelong conservationist (a person who works to preserve and protect the environment) who encouraged understanding of, and respect for, the natural environment. Although he spent a large part of his career in commercial photography, he is best known for his photographs of landscapes.

Ansel Adams gave up on the piano and decided to become a full-time professional photographer at about the time that some of his work was published in limited edition collections, such as Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras (1927) and Taos Pueblo (1930), with text written by Mary Austin. His first important one-man show was held in San Francisco in 1932 at the M. H. de Young Memorial Museum.

Adams went on to open the Ansel Adams Gallery for the Arts. He also taught, lectured, and worked on advertising assignments in the San Francisco area. During the 1930s he also began his extensive publications on methods of photography, insisting throughout his life on the importance of careful craftsmanship. In 1936 Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946) gave Adams a oneman show in his New York gallery—only the second time the work of a young photographer was exhibited by Stieglitz.

In 1937 Adams moved to Yosemite Valley close to his major subject and began publishing a stream of volumes, including Sierra Nevada: The John Muir Trail (1938), Illustrated Guide to Yosemite Valley (1940), Yosemite and the High Sierra (1948), and My Camera in Yosemite Valley (1949).

In 1930 Adams met the famous photographer Paul Strand (1890–1976) while they were working in Taos, New Mexico, and the man and his work had a lasting effect on Adams’s approach to photography. Strand encouraged Adams to change his approach from a soft expression of subjects to a much clearer, harder treatment, so-called “straight photography.” This idea was further reinforced by his association with the short-lived, but important, group of photographers known as f/64 (referring to the lens opening which guarantees a distinct image), which included Edward Weston (1886–1958) and Imogen Cunningham (1883–1976). This group helped the development of photography as a fine art.

In one sense Ansel Adams’s work is an extensive record of what is still left of the wilderness, the shrinking untouched part of the natural environment. Yet to see his work only as photographic images is to miss the main point that he tried to make: without a guiding vision, photography is not necessarily an important activity. The finished product, as Adams saw it, must be thought up before it can be executed. With nineteenth-century artists and philosophers (seekers of wisdom) he shared the belief that this vision must be inspired by life on earth. Photographs, he believed, were not taken from the environment but were made into something greater than themselves.

Ansel Adams died on April 22, 1984. During his life he was criticized for photographing rocks while the world was falling apart. He responded by suggesting that “the understanding of the … world of nature will aid in holding the world of man together.”

Akiko Ogawa

I explore the aesthetics of the digital medium and the opposition of analogue through video, with a particular interest in the organic process of light and the odd reality of data and signals manifested through electricity and pixels. The theme of my work is inspired by nightlife, crystals, the digital realm, sensory overload by mass media, noise, glitch and transmission interruption. My work includes a lot of psychedelic qualities which intends to confuse the viewer with odd ambient sounds and excessive uses of colours, shapes and motion. My work is also inspired by the idea of video synthesisers and the art of glitch done to manipulate television for pure art.

The process of exploring the digital domain had started off with my interest in multidimensional space and the five dimensions that exists in our reality. i intended to make art that could portray the existence of different invisible planes (dimensions), therefore moved towards the direction of intangible art that exists in digital as opposed to the tangible analogue. Digital art involves the human activity which becomes manifested through light, sound vibrations, ink, and many other physical mechanisms that respond to the codes of the computer.

Video art involves the combination of sound and visual, it simply produces what the physical three dimensional reality cannot, and breaks the law of physics. I use softwares such as ‘blender’ to create virtual objects to capture their motion in video format, which then becomes translated and edited through ‘aftereffects’ to reproduce a profound outcome of the unusual virtual reality which does not exist naturally in our physical world.
