Stjuarts Hārdijs

Savā praksē Stjuarts pievēršas sabiedrības attiecībām ar arhitektūru, atmiņu un telpas ierobežotību pilsētvidē. Fotogrāfija viņam ir kā vizuālās arheoloģijas rīks, ar ko pietuvoties mūsu vienmēr mainīgajai ainavai.
2018. gadā Stjuarts saņēma maģistra grādu fotogrāfijā Londonas Karaliskajā mākslas koledžā (Royal College of Art). Uzturējies rezidencēs Ņūkāslā un Parīzē; viņa darbi izstādīti vairākās galerijās Londonā.
Stjuarts strādā arī kā kurators un nesen nodibinājis izdevēju apvienību Folium, kas fokusējas uz neatkarīgām, eksperimentālām publikācijām.

Hiro Tanaka

Hiro dzimis un uzaudzis Japānā un vairākus gadus dzīvojis Amerikas Savienotajās valstīs. Fotografēt un apceļot Ameriku un Eiropu kopā ar amerikāņu pankroka grupām Hiro sāka negaidītu sakritību rezultātā – kāda Tokijas iepirkšanās centra loterijā viņš nejauši laimēja ceļojumu uz Ameriku. Tūres laikā viens no mūziķiem iedeva Tanakam viņa pirmo fotokameru. Kopš tā laika viņš turpina fotografēt, uzņemt video un kolekcionē dažādus izteicienus un sarunvalodas frāzes angļu valodā. Ieguvis ShainBook balvu (Francija) un ticis vairākām nominēts. Viņa darbi izstādīti vairākos starptautiskos fotogrāfijas festivālos.

Hiro Tanaka

Hiro Tanaka was born and raised in Japan and has lived in the United States for several years. An interesting coincidence led him to start taking photographs - after accidentally winning a free trip to the US through raffles at a shopping mall in Tokyo, Tanaka started travelling with US punk bands in the United States and Europe, while documenting the tour life. Since then the artist has been taking photographs, shooting video footage and collecting English slang and phrases. He has won Cosmos Arles PDF award (France), TPD book Award (Italy), and has been shortlisted for several awards such as the Kassel Photobook Award, Landskrona Foto Dummy Award, Daylight photo Award and exhibited his work in several international photo festivals.
