Photographs of a Retirement Community and the Eccentricities of Aging


Peter Granser is a photographer based in Stuttgart Germany.

Idyllic Photographs of Everyday Moments


Emma Hardy is a photographer based between London and Suffolk. Sparse landscapes with unexpectedly vast skies and dramatic light provide constant stimulation for her photographic eye and a backdrop for her fashion, editorial and portraits alike.

Touching Portraits of Aging Farm Animals


Isa Leshko is a photographer based in Philadelphia. Leshko grew up in Carteret, an industrial town situated off the New Jersey Turnpike. She received her BA from Haverford College, where she studied cognitive psychology and neurobiology.

These images are from her series, Elderly Animals, which she began after spending a year caring for her mother who has Alzheimer’s disease. Instead of photographing her family, she found an outlet for her experience in a series of portraits of aging farm animals. Her luminous photographs are a moving expression of empathy, but also a celebration of life.


Portraits that Intrigue and Disturb by Petrina Hicks


Petrina Hicks is a photographer based in Sydney.

Photographs of the Magnificent Treehotel


Peter Lundstrom is a photographer and art director based in Sweden. Lundstrom studied web design and video production, and began his photography career after a bad snowboarding accident. This selection of his images were shot for Sweden’s innovative tourist attraction, Treehotel.

Located in Harads, a village in the northern part of the country with only 600 inhabitants, the Treehotel has made the forested region a touristic attraction. Designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, the hotel, which first opened in July 2010, consists of five tree-rooms which were made to reconnect their guests with nature. All of the rooms harmoniously blend into the natural environment, with the exception of the ‘UFO’, and aim to make a minimal ecological footprint.


Photographs Examine the Intricate Workings of Low Tech Devices


Kevin Twomey is a commercial photographer based in San Francisco. Twomey’s use of light comes from a background in theatrical lighting, where he learned the ability to control light to set the mood and evoke emotion. He further developed his creative eye studying fine art photography at the State University of New York at New Paltz. Twomey delights in raising the most mundane of objects to an iconic level. This selection of images are from his ‘Low Tech’ series.

Photos of Abandoned and Mysterious Yugoslavian Monuments


Jan Kempenaers is an Antwerp based photographer and is attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts at the University College Ghent in Belgium where he is working on a PhD in the visual arts about the picturesque landscape.

Kempenaers undertook a laborious trek through the Balkans in order to photograph a series of these mysterious objects for his book Spomenik.  These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place, or where concentration camps stood. After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost.  Kempenaers did not set out as a documentary photographer, but first and foremost as an artist seeking to create a new image. An image so powerful that it engulfs the viewer. He allows the viewer to enjoy the melancholy beauty of the Spomeniks, but in so doing, forces us to take a position on a social issue.
