After studying photography at college in Southern California, Dan finished his formal education at the film school of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany. He began his career in photography as a photojournalist in his home town in Ventura County, California. After winning several regional awards for his work, he moved to New York City, where magazine assignments came rapidly. Known for the broad range of subject matter he is able to interpret, he is widely recognized for his unusual celebrity portraiture, his scientific photography, photo illustrations, drawings and photojournalistic stories.
Bastiaan Woudt (NL, 1987) has seen a meteoric rises within the world of contemporary photography. After starting his own photography practice from scratch a mere five years ago, with no experience or formal training, he has developed into a photographer with his own distinct signature style – abstract yet sharp, with a strong focus on detail.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
I don’t like to follow the crowd.
I like to seduce, with images that are at once disturbing and beautiful,
but leaving a space for the viewer to enter my world.
My portraits combine elements which evoke conflicting
emotions that can surprise the viewer, telling a story that is somewhere
between fantasy and reality, the obvious and the unexpected.
Based in Barcelona, Dayron Vera’s focus on dance photography came naturally. Being a professional ballet dancer has given him an understanding of movement that enables him to capture his subjects with perfect timing. He started to shoot because of his urge to freeze movement and making it last forever, and at the same time transmit the feeling that the dancers in his images still keep on moving.
Carlos Quezada is a young Mexican photographer who before being a professional photographer was a dancer. Highly demanded by big companies such as the Zürich Ballet, the Stuttgarter Ballet and the Berlin Staatsballet, the Quezada images are used for the promotions of different theaters.
What this photographer is looking for is capturing the best moment of the dancer, the essence of the movement.
