Nicholas Scarpinato is a young, up-and-coming photographer from Richmond, USA. His work walks the fine, and sometimes blurred, line between fantasy, fiction, and illusion. Yes, they are absolutely digitally altered, but that’s nothing new in this digital age. What makes his work stand out from the rest is the perceived texture of the shots. They have the feel of a classic painting. The concepts behind each one is not too common either.
Fabian Oefneris something of an anomaly. He has managed to combine art with science, and make the result look spectacular. All of his work demonstrates a sound scientific principle behind it. His subjects include: bursting soap bubbles, colored salt, bursting balloons, and ferrofluids. All of them expertly captured using high speed flash photography, long exposures, and other photographic tricks. Fabian conducts his experiments in his small studio near Zurich.
Capturing a great shot is enough for most photographers, but Edward Horsford ups the ante by making his own sound trigger. His series of photos featuring bursting balloons was taken using his trusty SLR camera, strobe lights, a rusty stick (for popping the balloons), and a sound trigger he made himself. He studied industrial design and works for Onzo, an energy company. He may categorize himself as a hobbyist, but his work would put most professionals to shame.
Ling Jian was born in the Shandong Province of China in 1963. He graduated from the Qinghua University Art College and has exhibited his work in Germany, Bangkok, Amsterdam, and Italy. the subjects of his paintings are mostly women, and the longer you look at them, the more disturbing they get. Ling tweaks the symmetry and proportion just enough to make the viewer realize that something is off about these women, but not allowing the viewer to figure out what.
Bernhard Edmaier is a German photographer, geologist, and author. A strange enough combination, but it works.Some of the stunning photos he’s taken look like they weren’t even taken on earth. When asked about his work, he responds: “I keep moving between two worlds: the world of science in the most general sense of the word and that of art … this constant oscillation between documentary and detached, abstract photography is the most exciting factor rendering inspiration to my work.”
Space is space on it´s own, human is human on it´s own, and the sum of this two elements gives us a manipulated environment in which functionality steps away from meaning and where besides of motion you can still perceive life, because far from and anthropocentric view, a being is the essence of space, that once interpreted and modified, looses its selfness and transforms into and appendix longing energy to accomplish it function and mean something.

Dan Elijah G. Fajardo is a full-time, Filipino graphic artist currently based in Manila. He has a child-like attitude towards art that spurs him to create simple, yet moving pieces centered around fantasy and science fiction. Dreams, childhood memories, space, stars, and fantasy fascinate him. Dan pencils a sketch before making his ideas come alive on Adobe Photoshop. Juan Luna, a Philippine National artist, is an inspiration of his. Andy Warhol and Banksy are also a major influence in his art.
Clet Abraham turns the ordinary into a statement. He lives and works in Florence, Italy where he has his own studio. According to him, his inspiration from his street signs art stem from a reflection upon our ‘common visual space’. Street signs are everywhere in Italy and he feels that some of them simply ‘verge on the absurd’. What’s an artist to do? Clet improves the signs by placing adhesive stickers that will make every motorist and pedestrian take a second look.
