HUVUDDOMARE - JÖRGEN BRANDT, DANMARK

Fotografi er for mig en livsstil, et arbejde og en hobby – og grænserne flydende eller ikke eksisterende. I det kommercielle arbejder jeg med at fange stemning og følelse, at fange ”mennesket” som et levende individ – som et glimt af deres ”personlighed”. Billederne er tit portrætter af enkelte eller familier, fine art nude (boudoir), gravide, nyfødte, børn etc. Gennem tiden har jeg udstillet på forskellige gallerier samt museer og været med på en hel del udstillinger andre steder.

Egen fotokunst I mine egne natur og abstrakte eller Fine Art Nude billeder er det egentligt noget af det samme. Lyset og formen er altid med og skal understøtte billedet Som fotograf arbejder jeg i mine egne billeder mere og mere med det abstrakte, måske nærmere abstraktionen, hvor tingene bliver til mere og ofte andet end de er.

For mig handler fotografiet ikke om hvad jeg ser eller om hvad virkeligheden er. Det gjorde i begyndelsen og faktisk i mange år. Det var spændende, det udviklede sig – men det var, set i bakspejlet, også en spændetrøje. Virkeligheden, så spændende og udfordrende den kan være, er egentlig uinteressant i fantasiens verden. Det uanset om fantasien udspringer af virkeligheden eller ikke. Mine egne fotografier handler fantasi, der er opstået i den måde jeg vælger at se og bruge verden i mine billeder.

Desuden underviser jeg i og holder foredrag om fotografi i Danmark, på Færøerne, Japan, Letland, Frankrig, UK, Sverige med flere.

Har været/er mentor for fotografer fra bl.a. Danmark, Norge, Sverige, UK, Holland, Belgien, Slovakiet, Frankrig m. fl.

VICENTE ESTEBAN, SPANIEN - DIGITALDOMARE

A Vicente Esteban Abad, es obvio, le gustan los cuerpos y las personas. Los desnudos, los retratos… La gente.

En ese bosque de individuos y parejas, es decir, de cuerpos únicos o dobles, solos o acompañados, va creciendo la obra del alicantino Esteban Abad. Con exigencia y sentido de la realidad, sin prisas, con un notable punto de generosidad hacia los otros, evidente en la forma en que los viste o desnuda, siempre acompañados por la belleza de las mejores luces surgida a partes iguales de su mirada y de su oficio. 

 

No es de extrañar por ello que su trabajo diario se centre básicamente en la fotografía de estudio, el reportaje social y la fotografía de desnudo , sin descartar otros encargos procedentes de la publicidad: catálogos, calzado, complementos, alimentación.

 

La fusión entre los intereses fotográficos de Vicente Esteban y su actividad profesional cotidiana es tan armónica que, en ocasiones, muchos de sus trabajos adquieren la categoría de obra personal.

JEANETTE LARSEN, NORGE - PRINTDOMARE

Jeanette driver et lite portrettstudio sammen med sin mann i Stavanger, sørvest i Norge. Studio åpnet i 1999 og hun har fotografert store deler av byens befolkning. Noen på jobb, men flest privat.  Jeanette liker mennesker, stemninger, årstider, gjensyn, samtaler, latter og melankoli. Fotografi kan være så mye forskjellig og det slutter aldri å bli interressant. Det hun liker aller best er når portretter forteller noe om hvem personen på bildet er.
