Ernesto Artillo - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Working primarily in Fashion, Ernesto Artillo is an editorial collagist, as I would like to call him. He transforms high fashion into fractured, distorted portraits, using photography and collage. His work varies from obscure, minimalist collage to more dizzying and surreal landscapes (at times echoing Cubism) with the human body being cut by bold stripes of color and abstract imagery. He has worked with the biggest names in fashion from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Maison Martin Margiela.

Selina Mayer - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Selina Mayer is a UK based photographer who creates eerily intimate black and white images of both the human body and form as well as landscape. They are fashioned in the style of the old photographic masters (think Avedon, Penn, Weston), focusing primarily on the figure; the curves, crevices, shadows, and marks of all humans. Her images capture the delicate balance between sexy and vulnerable. selinamayer.com

Photographs are windows to another world and as such have a magical quality to them. In my new work Realm I have created digitally altered photographs, where the familiar place of the home becomes a portal into mythical realm." -Carolyn Lefley, Photographer, London
