WHO? My name is Youngjae Lim and I live in NYC. I was born and raised in politically the most conservative city, Daegu in Korea. But thank God, I left my hometown right after graduating my high school and turned out to be a progressive.
WHO? I was born in one of the most visually interesting suburbs of the chaotic capital of Greece. I like long walks and believing that nothing’s ever as it seems. I’m constantly searching for stillness in everything; for some sort of calmness that probably can’t be noticed at first sight.
WHO? My name is Adriadna Lasser, I’m 33 years old and I am an Argentinian photographer. I live in Buenos Aires and I have been photographing since I was 7 years old. My first big love was the cinema, but the idea of working with many people gave me some sort of anxiety. After studying Art- the course was quite theoretical- for a while I realized I needed something more hands-on to express myself.
WHO? Born in São Paulo, in 1994, I started photographing when I was 21 years old, when I sold an old video game to buy a camera and photograph parties and earn some money, which ended up not working very well. I decided to continue shooting, I come feeding this with references like the Brazilians Gustavo Minas and Carlos Moreira, and other references like Alex Webb, Trent Parke and his partner Narelle Autio, and Graciela Magnoni.
For thirty years street photography has been an integral part of my lived experience in New York. What I love about street photography is that it is freewheeling and there are very few rules and regulations to making pictures.
WHO? I was born in 1976 in Poland, then lived in Australia for many years. It was on leaving Melbourne in 2015 that my interest in street was born by accidentally buying a local street photographer’s collection of images instead of the planned postcard-style souvenir book. By 2016, I was already settled in my new home of Seattle, USA, equipped with a small mirrorless camera, and ready to hit the streets!
WHO? HI am Emre Çakmak. I was born in İzmir,Turkey, 1996. When I was a child, I was trying to find myself in novels, playing football and walking around the city with my best friend; my late grandfather. My first photograph is a memento of those weekend walks. I was 7 years old, I took portraits of my mother and grandfather towards sea. I spent my childhood within this circle: books, football and my late grandfather.
WHO? Photography entered my life in my early teens. It all began with an internship at a photo-lab that spanned a summer’s length. I was just thirteen then, and though I didn’t fully comprehend what I was getting myself into, I felt motivated to experiment and see where the experience would take me. It was because everyone in my family made the most of their creativity that I was encouraged to explore my own.
