Lilyan Aloma / New York City, New York / USA

Lilyan is a self-taught photographer who began her photo journey in 1982. Working exclusively in black and white, her focus was portraiture and children, which led to the start of a commercial children’s studio and to her ongoing commitment to documenting children. More recently, Lilyan’s interest in children has expanded to the teaching of photographic literacy to children ages 10 – 18. As a fine artist, Lilyan has lent her eye to landscape and architecture. “Billscapes,” the current body of work is her personal view of Manhattan’s marriage to media driven messages. It is homage to her roots in traditional photography and the “art of seeing.”

My goal is to reflect the inner identity of people through portraits and the truth of uncensored stories through the language of light writing, as an Independent Photojournalist and ZUMA Press Contract Photographer based in Los Angeles, CA.

My photography is shaped by: my great mentor, Lisette Model, and by the act of photographing. Lisette taught me to remain open to the sensual aspects of the subject, i.e. the rhythm of form; years of shooting a lot of film taught me how to do that, at times, successfully. Work in the b/w darkroom brought me closer to the expression the subject of the photograph demanded. In photoshop I work in heaven, currently on lifestyle images of children in color for corporate and advertising clients. My clients, ranging from Vogue, the New York Times to Vibe and the Village Voice, know my negatives are the raw material so selects are made from my work prints or jpegs.

Anna Kilbridge/ San Francisco, California/ USA

Anna Kilbridge is among the country's top family and wedding photographers. She is inspired by the intimacy of human self expression in common relationships and interactions, and how it is actualized through subtle physical gesture. Anna documents everyday life. Neither the moments nor the settings are monumental. The beauty of her photographs is in the ordinariness of the subject matter, the stuff of life we all experience. Anna's photographs reveal simple truths of the human condition. They are profound because they belong to each one of us, present whenever we pause and pay attention.

Candy Kuehl Van Winkle was born in Berlin, Germany under the GDR (German Democratic Republic). Although, she was only 11 years old when the "wall" came down, this early period of her life was forever ingrained into her personality. Many of her photo work exhibits textures and colors the average person takes for granted, often things she was not exposed to under communist rule. She studied Photo Design in Berlin, graduating in 2002 as a state proofed Photo Designer. In 2005, she moved to Los Angeles and married a local artist. She is now experiencing life in her new home town. Besides

Teresa Ollila / Lafayette, Colorado / USA

A background with degrees in both nursing and photography has allowed Teresa to bring the project “Living with Type 1 Diabetes” to life. The image "Potential Complications" is a Photoshop depiction of a potential outcome for a very serious disease escalating among young adults. May 19th 2006 marks the third anniversary of her son’s diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes at age three. She began this photographic project to help broaden the public’s awareness of the disease and to give those stricken in our community a vehicle through which to share the reality of their lives. It is her goal to portray the potential of what the youngest victims of this disease must undergo in the privacy of their homes, beneath restaurant tables, or even in public restrooms every day, just to stay alive, which is typically only viewed by caregivers and loved ones.

In Danielle Rubi’s work we see everything from portraiture to glaciers, perhaps a manifestation of her polarized Swiss-Californian upbringing.Yet despite the variety of subjects, there is a continuity of mood: moments of unavoidable self. Her photographs prove that in an instant things can express what they are, not what they aspire to be. Danielle received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999 and has shot editorial work for Dwell, Nylon, Readymade and Anthem. Her past gallery involvement includes shows in California, Scandinavia and Germany.

Lynn Saville's sense of beauty was first awakened in Italy, where she lived as a child during her professor-parents’ sabbaticals. In other years, her family’s summers in Vermont provided opportunities to photograph the stars and trees at night with her father and older brother. She began to focus on the night urban landscape while earning an M.F.A. in photography at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, she has photographed in many iconic cities at twilight and dawn, when the streets are mostly deserted. But, paradoxically, Saville’s photographs are filled with traces of human activity and haunted by implied narratives.

Then, through compositional approach and digital meanderings, Carol transforms these photographs into emotive scenes that unveil something that may not have been visible upon first glance. Carol has embraced digital infrared photography, mainly for its ability to reveal spectrums of light that can't be seen with the human eye.
