Showcasing some of today's established and emerging photographers.

This group of talented photographers were all handpicked because they all have carved their own
individual niche in the contemporary art world.

What goes on through the mind of the photographer?
Works of creative splendor and wickedly composed framed visual music for the sighted
Some may just hear, the gathering of visual information or maybe just a lilttle bit of both.
These artist have something that bring on thoughts to the grey matter, we all use to stockpile informational pleasure.
It's fantastical, it's a casual glance at what everyone takes for granted when they just "walk on by".

Photography is everywhere, our world is made up of photography, from that strikingly beautiful model in Vogue magazine, that really absurd shot in Vice,that you just picked up
to that dirty one eyed doll that was abandoned by the curb, near the displaced dog
that carries it around, because it's the closest thing to a human companion.
What you don't realize is, that as soon as your eyes saw it, it was a potential photograph.
What makes a photograph different, is that it is a documented view of that eerily and sad moment in time.

Yes, of course, "We see photography everyday, what's so special about these?"
Well, I can say these are visions of what we see, but never document, cause we have to catch that bus,
or train downtown.

The quirkiness of one may be the visual stimulus of another.
Colors and patterns of a woman's dress may be the trigger of a murderous composition for a photographer.
The smile or laugh of child can be what creates that next image.
