Interview with Lou Gilbert
WHO? Hello, I’m Lou Gilbert from the subtropical city of Brisbane, Australia. I discovered photography through travel when working overseas for several years. In about 2018 (at home again) in the absence of a travel photography group, I joined a local street photography group without having a clue what street photography was.

Interview with Gaspard Claude
WHO? My name is Gaspard Claude and I live in Paris, in a small maid’s room under the roof facing the Arc de Triomphe, in the 16th arrondissement of the capital. After studying journalism and political science, I became passionate about street photography from an artistic point of view : a useful practice to observe and question the society that surrounds us ; discreetly, and without disturbing it. I decided four years ago to become a freelance journalist/editor in order to work from home with my computer, and be able to devote time to photography every day. My daily life is organized to make this photographic practice possible.
Interview with Ben Dowling
WHO? Hi, I’m Ben Dowling from Melbourne, Australia. I found photography through many years of skateboarding and being around a lot of creative friends, whether they were photographers, painters, designers, etc… that also skated. I dabbled here and there in photography and when everything started to hurt too much, I turned to the camera more and more as an outlet. And then one obsession just fell into another. It was a natural progression.
Interview with Ypatia Kornarou

I discovered how photography could be the visual twin of poetry.
