Born in 1962 in St. Petersburg, Titarenko rose to prominence in the 1990s for his series of photographs of his native city, where his application of long exposures, intentional camera movement, and expert printmaking techniques to street photography produced a powerful meditation on an urban landscape still suffused with a history of suffering.

Tomasz Gudzowaty: Pole Dancers

Tomasz Gudzowaty: Pole Dancers

Pole dancing is no longer the preserve of gentlemen’s clubs, and became – at least in Western countries – just one of many physical activities that everyone can enjoy, but the connections between pole dance and its sensual roots are still obvious and can create tension and negativity.  Especially in families, a person’s decision to enter the career of a professional pole…

Ryan Spencer: Such Mean Estate

Disaster can be explosive and theatrical or quiet and ominous. The photographs that make up Such Mean Estate are images appropriated from films about apocalypse.
