"I am 23 years old, a student. I come from Frankfurt, live in Berlin and just spent 10 months in Paris. I started taking photographs with an old analogue camera. It was my granddads and my grandmother gave it to me, when he passed away. My pictures are mainly portraits of my favorite people and textures in nature (architecture/cities and nature/mountains/sea). Taking pictures is like journaling to me, my interpretation of my surroundings, my everyday life — my emotional work, my coping strategy, my joys, my melancholy."

To shoot is always a reason to go out, to embrace life."

"I started doing photography in Greece in 2013, it was the first time I went to Athens. Back in the day I didn’t have any notion of photography neither materials. My friend Pablo Dury gave me his analog camera a Nikon F2, and since then I have been shooting only with this camera. My passion of photography came with the love I had for this object. Since that I've been documenting every where I go to and every face who crosses my path. That helps me to fix memories within time, and recover the failure of my direct memory."
About this series: "These pictures were produced in 2014 in Melbourne’s inner North-side. They are a footprint of our communal memory of those times and places. In Melbourne, everything changes so fast, yet stays the same. I wanted to crystalize that time. I no longer live there – I am an outsider, but those people make Melbourne feel like home every time I return."

"I come from Germany and live in the near of Frankfurt at the Main. I spend most of my time alone, with my friends or with musicians and artists. I'm trying to document life as it happens; my friends myself, everything and everybody that is around me. I don't like to go for the 'perfect' shot of a person. I´d rather capture somebody as authentic and honest as they are, with their flaws and imperfections. I interfere with the comfort zone of people and get to know their vulnerable side. This can be be intense sometimes, but I enjoy the intimacy and the trust I earn in return."

"I'm from Redondo Beach California. I've been drawing since I was little and just stuck with it. I draw inspiration from the bleak aspects of life such as feelings of desperation, despair, rage, self loathing, addiction, etc. I draw because it's crucial in my reality, and it is the best way to escape it, essentially creating a world that no one else can enter. I love hardcore punk and hip-hop. Currently I play in a band called 1034. I also have a zine called Frown."

I started music photography in December 2018. I still have much to learn, even though I love the stuff I am making. I can see where I can improve and I’m willing to evolve and change as I get older. Photography, especially music photography, is a great escape for me and all the negative aspects of my life. It helps me be creative in the worst times. It helps me feel electrified when I may feel hopeless. That’s what I love about music photography, wanting to go the shows of some of my favorite musicians but also capturing a moment that will live on forever is pretty exhilarating experience."
