Viktorija Bernotaite

Viktorija Bernotaite ir lietuviešu māksliniece, kas šobrīd dzīvo Lielbritānijā, un savās fotogrāfijās visbiežāk pievēršas cilvēka un dabas attiecību izzināšanai. Interese par dabu, īpaši kokiem, viņai radusies jau bērnībā un šis motīvs viņas darbos atkārtojas nepārtraukti. Viktorija šogad absolvējusi fotogrāfijas nodaļu Falmutas Universitāti un piedalījusies vairākās grupas izstādēs Lielbritānijā.

Šobrīd raksta savu doktordarbu Lietuvas Kultūras pētniecības institūtā. Saņēmis vairākus starptautiskus apbalvojumus Lietuvā, Polijā un Serbijā, bet nesenākā ir “Photolux Award” balva Itālijā 2019. gadā. Kopš 2016. gada piedalījies grupas un personālizstādēs Eiropā, Jaunzēlandē, ASV. Radot teju abstraktus attēlus, Valentīns pievēršas uztveres paradoksu pētīšanai.

Martins T. Radžio

Martins T. Radžio ir ASV dzimis argentīnietis, kurš dzīvo Berlīnē un strādā, miksējot visas šīs ietekmes un darbos atklājot savas dzīves mirkļus un emocijas. Viņš rotaļājas ar fotogrāfiju, pārvēršot “īsto pasauli” pats savā realitātē un pēdējā laikā ir īpaši pievērsies analogajai lielformāta fotogrāfijai. Studējis mediju mākslu Buenosairesas Universitātē, ieguvis maģistra grādu laikmetīgajā fotogrāfijā EFTI fotogrāfijas centrā Madridē, piedalījies izstādēs Argentīnā, Spānijā un Portugālē.
