WHO? I was born 1960 in Münster, a sedate City in Westphalia Germany. My Parents owned a string of pharmacies and as the eldest child I was expected to take over the family business, but being the only punk in town, a disaster at school and later at business school, my doomed education didn’t bode well for my Father, who later took out large loans against the family home and business before abandoning the lot, including my mother, and leaving her with huge debts. The family lost everything. By this time, I had gone to New York where I was living in a former dance school with artists in Harlem 125th and Lexington, the exact spot where Lou Reed waited for his man.
WHO? I grew up in a Swabian village in Germany but believe till today that something went wrong and I should have been born in Argentina – but this is where I ended up just many years later. As a teenager, I really only had football on my mind. It wasn’t until I studied at the Stuttgart Academy of Art that I got into photography.
WHO? I’m Chris Moxey – Mox for short! I was born in Brighton, on the Sussex coast of the UK and spent all my childhood in Sussex. After I left school we moved a few miles along the coast, to Worthing. I enjoyed it there but as a teen just beginning to get into the music scene the lure of London loomed large, so when a friend suggested we move there together I jumped at the chance.
WHO? I am Sally Coggle, I live in Melbourne, Australia. My photographic journey began in school, it was perhaps the first thing that ignited something deep inside of me. At the time I don’t think I really understood that it would become a part of my world forever in some way. But this is where it stopped for a long time, as I perused a career in advertising as a Designer and Art Director. I have had an amazing career, working with many talented commercial photographers and film makers. But inside, I wanted to be the person taking the photographs.
WHO? Hi, I’m Jill Maguire, a retired technical writer and admittedly fair-weather street photographer. In 2020 I moved from the Seattle area to southern Maine (USA). Moving here was a dream come true, but it’s been challenging to start new street photography projects from scratch. I moved from a big city that bustles year-round to a tourist town that is crazy in the summer and dead in the winter. I love the kitschy beach towns here but I’m still figuring out how to “see” them and what to photograph during the off season.
WHO? The basics: mom, grandma, animal and nature lover, defender of social justice, possessed by an insatiable wanderlust, educator by profession, Miami resident but my native New York is my home, heart, and inspiration.
WHO? I am from Belgium, born and raised near Bruges. After my studies in Ghent, I moved to London. After about three years there I decided to travel, which I did (on and off) for about eight years. This nomadic life started in the mid 1970s, with various trips to India and South East Asia. In the mid 1980s, I spent over two years traveling through North and South America.
WHO? I’m Caren Winnall. I grew up on Long Island, lived in England for 2 years, spent 10 years in Brooklyn, and have lived in suburban Connecticut for the past 30 years. It is the ideal location for me, giving easy access to the stimulation NYC offers, while providing space and access to nature. I […]
WHO? Hi! I’m Laura Fontaine. I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy then moved to the US in 1998 and have been living in the NYC for the past 16 years. Back in 2013, photography fell on my lap and it’s been the most invigorating, strenuous, daunting, exhilarating and soul searching personal and professional path I could ever ask for and one which I do not intend to abandon.
WHO? I am a lifelong New Yorker. I went to school at NYU and have been working in Manhattan in the technology/gaming space for the past 15 years. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in photography but my picture-taking was focused on some occasional landscapes and photos of family/friends. About 4 years ago, I realized that my midtown NYC location and flexible schedule would be a perfect fit for grabbing a camera and taking some photos during the afternoon “lunch break.”
