At the age of 16, I started to explore various areas around where I lived and quickly grew to love what I would find on explorations, whether it was through nature or abandoned structures. I shortly after began to capture the world around me, the things I see and how I see them. I wanted to share with people these beautiful places as well as I can, and through a lens was how I could shape these visions. On the side of everything else I have loved to photograph, around the age of 16 I became intrigued with urban exploration upon the discovery of an abandoned farm house in the city of Kirtland, OH. My mother, step father and myself were on our way to my sisters house when I had spotted it and asked if we could pull into the drive way to check it out. The way the roof was caved in, covered in bright moss attracted my attention. It was beautiful. We pulled into the drive and walked from our car up to the entrance of this falling structure…
Indonesian photographer Mikael Aldo tries to reconcile the gap between what’s real and what isn’t. He describes himself as not just a photographer but as an explorer and a story-teller. Certainly, some of his images could be ripped straight from the pages of an epic fantasy novel. He’s just 17-years-old but he has the skill and imagination of an established and sophisticated artist. He seamlessly fuses portraits with natural elements, such as waterfalls, clouds, and forests, creating a vivid and surreal creative world. Girls sleep on clouds, boys transform into trees, and headless men prance across vacant lots. It’s trippy brilliance of the highest order.
This is for my editor friends, the “impossible to do” videoclip Fear and Delight, a great idea and a great technique in shooting and editing for an incredible result, the behind the scene and interview with the director Naren Wilks follows the clip.

I am Jacob Edmiston.Right now i am an 18 year old amateur photographer. I am still trying to learn more techniques of photography and improve my editing skills. I discovered that i liked the hobby of photography in 2008. I love to take pictures of nature! I really like flowers and landscapes. (Unfortunately where I live there are no amazing landscapes, just cornfields.)
I would describe my style as a mix of daydreams and fairytales. The fascinate thing in photography is the way I can deal with my feelings and the way I can convert my daydreams into images. Photography allows me to create the world I would love to live in. And through photography I met wonderful people which I am fortunate enough to call my friends now. It makes me really happy to be connected with so many beautiful souls.Katharina Jung
I started playing around with photography in September 2009 after borrowing a friends Nikon, and I now find my self addicted. Macro work has become my favourite category, water drops to be more precise! In 2013 I’m hoping to buy an electronic kit to help me capture some high speed collisions of these water drops. Dave Wood
