In her playful still lifes, Canadian photographer Virginie Gosselin marries her surrealist aesthetic with her longtime interest in food, cultivated from her childhood at a farm in Quebec. For her conceptual food images, the photographer draws inspiration from an unlikely set of muses: the aisles of the local grocer, discarded objects at yard sales, the advertorial imagery of mid-century America, and everything in between.

For Trading to Extinction, Bangkok-based photographer Patrick Brown spent nearly a quarter of his life documenting the dark truths behind the illegal wildlife trade, from the poachers of Nepal and Cambodia to  vendors along the Burmese border. Alternately shadowing anti-poaching teams and pretending the role of an interested buyer, Brown has collected over ten years’ worth of imagery that unveils the breadth of this multibillion dollar industry, pulling clandestine moments of cruelty and exploitation from the shadows and into light. Bearing witness to Brown’s austere black and white visions, we are overtaken by the enormity and pervasiveness of the industry, and ultimately, called to action.

In 2010, photographer Diego Saldiva received news he was going to be a father.

To make matters worse, a rare disease was subsequently diagnosed in the tiny, two pound infant. Chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant were to follow, there was much waiting involved. Break of Day is a father’s response to this precarious time in his family’s life. The title of the series is a reference to the time between the ‘darkness’ and the moment the day breaks, moments spent waiting in uncertainty.
