Seren Coskun, Photo Artist & Conceptualist, Istanbul

"It's all about trying to hold on to a moment, and recall the feelings lived at that second. Photographs make us remember in a similar, but a more powerful way by visually stimulating our memory blocks."

Istanbul-based self-taught photo artist, Seren Coskun, became interested in photography in 2010 after borrowing her grandfather's film camera, an old Zenit 122. An observant, detail-oriented character has been reflecting on her style of photography. While capturing the secrecy in portraiture, it is easy to notice that nostalgia plays a significant role in creation of her photographs.

Black Milk, Production Agency, UK

Fascinating. This is the only word which perfectly describes Venetial Scott’s epic fashion editorial for the British Vogue in collaboration with the Royal Ballet. An influential and visionary visual collage infused with references to Degas, pre-soviet Russia and Studio 54.

A Black Milk production; this one will most definitely be among the highlights of the creative year.

Ariel Palanzone, Art Director, Argentina

Is it architecture? Is it photography? Is it hyperrealistic design?

Art Director Ariel Palanzone knows who to create landscapes that call for multiple interpretation and open a window to a different, more creative corner of the brain. Pun totally intended.
