Brian Powell has been shooting professionally since he was 21 years old. He has gained a reputation as a master Black & White printer, working and consulting with a broad range of photographers and artists. "The images presented in this gallery were shot with a Leica M4 on Kodak Black & White Infrared film. I experimented with many developers and eventually mixed my own in order to manage the contrast and tonal range of this exceptional film", said Brian.
Photographer Lee Ross, known as “Rosspilot”, has been flying for more than 30 years. He has established himself as a specialist in acquiring images from his small single-engine airplane, and his work can be found hanging on walls in almost every country in the world and in every corner of the United States. Ross began selling his photographs in Soho, where he continues to display them on weekends. His images have been published in Europe and the United States.
Ross is National Vice-President of the Professional Aerial Photographer’s Association, International and has served on the Board of Directors for the last 3 years. Last February, he was awarded the designation, “Master Aerial Photographer”. In 2002, his image, “Tribute” was awarded “Best Technical Achievement” by his colleagues in the Aerial Pro International Forum.
Karl Gaetjens has been working as an Architect as his career, however, in 2003, he discovered digital art. He describes his passion in his artwork, "To illuminate the profane, that beyond the incoherent masala of shapes and colors, the artist can awaken within the observer, intense sensations and sublime emotions, he becomes a catalyst of sorts, by his complicity, initiating a unique internal quest rising from his emotions...A new dream dawns, voyage experiences alive with renewed intensity at every turn. To fulfill this commitment, the artist must seek out to seduce the viewers by what he named: “DIGITAL LYRIC ABSTRACTION”
Bruce Richardsons' background in theatre taught him many lessons about art and presentation. His formal training and experience is as a scenic artist. Bruce says "I think I have a point of view to share and work to give the presentation to my audience. My images reflect my view of the world. Some real…some imagined. To photograph - is to capture the scene and tell a story from your point of view…"
