|Devin and The Fireflies,
2010 -- Cig Harvey|
Harvey's photographic series, You Look At Me Like an Emergency, was also recently published as a book by Schilt Publishing. In our recent interview, Harvey stated: "My work reflects, either indirectly or directly, what I am concerned with at that time but it’s always the human spirit that fascinates me. I initially used myself as the subject when I was creating work about the past, but the pictures were never really specifically about me, rather the universal emotion I was trying to explore. A shift happened in 2005 when I started to make work about the present. I no longer needed to be in the images, I just needed to have my camera in hand and look at the world around me."

|Invincible -- Lydia Panas|
Panas is known for her arresting portraits of groups of people. In our interview with her earlier this year, Panas discussed the origin of her project: "The result from that shoot was so vivid, that I began inviting other people to come to my property, again with no specific idea in mind. The project grew organically. As in all my work, the project drove me, rather than the other way around. Making photographs keeps me interested because I always learn about myself through my work and through the process. When I allow my unconscious thoughts to drive the process, the images become more interesting and revealing." Read the entire interview here.
