Irene Greenberg


“What remains? Memory blanched in the light and toned with the passage of time. I try my best to remember as the images fade. With this series, I move my street photography in a new direction. I seek to create nostalgia – fleeting sketches – with strong lines and harsh light.”

Earth Rhythms

Barry Guthertz


“I have spent countless hours outdoors climbing mountains, hiking forests, fishing rivers, and camping by lakes. I have always wanted to somehow share the excitement, the Eros, and other extraordinary feelings that awaken inside me when I’m surrounded by nature. Whether close-up or from a distance, the sheer magnitude of nature’s force can both terrify and fascinate. Left in their wake is a mysterious beauty that calls me to sit quietly and contemplate the breathtaking compositions carved into the earth’s landscape.”

Born Here Project

Ellen Jacob


“Each of our identities is born out of a place and a story-the defining moments that transform us. Through images and words, Born Here Project documents people and their origin stories, exploring the concepts of place and identity. Large-scale prints embody the stories of past Born Here subjects. There also will be live photo sessions May 13-16 so gallery visitors can join Born Here by being photographed and telling their origin stories. The project is currently published on Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram with thousands of worldwide followers.”

Sliding Doors

Avshalom Levi


“The Door of Hope is a shelter for prostitutes, drug addicts and homeless women in the old Central Bus Station of South Tel-Aviv, Israel. The shelter is a sanctuary where the women can find a respite from the streets. This series was made in 2008 over a period of six months. It is shot in black and white and hand-tinted as a way to look into their eyes, an action many avoid on the streets. The series is dedicated to a beautiful woman who is no longer with us.” .

2016 International Portfolio Competition

The Temple of Wonders

Lou Krueger


This work features large-scale, digital photographic montages that, “much like the circus sideshow, acknowledges the physical embodiment of human anomaly and psychological aberration.”
