Benoit Courti’s feature Deep Black takes one into the depths where the soul feels light as feathers dance, and dark as love becomes a tug-of-war. His crisp images capture the light and dark and highlight the epitome of the human journey: fortune, and love as they slip through our hands through the sands of time.

In Jana Hunterová’s feature, Albion, we see the weathered face of an older man as he walks by a bright and shiny building, he is moving through the photo just like we are moving through life, structures surround us and when we’re lucky the light of the sun warms us. And if it doesn’t we can turn to Hunterová’s photos and notice a welcoming light in all the photos, even the ones without sunlight. There is light in everything.

Leon Syfrit’s feature Blowout, redefines the notion of sculpture as his scrap treasures are found and posed only to be photographed, he tells us that, “…I don’t find the actual sculpture to be engaging. The magic happens when I take the photograph.” His photographs are the piece. The frayed lines and root like movement of the abandoned rubber evoke poetic movement; letting us know that the journey is not done.
