Mark Tipple is a documentary filmmaker & photographer from Sydney, Australia and over the last few years has been hailed worldwide for his craft. But much like the vast expanse of the ocean that he has fallen in love with over the years, true appreciation for his art comes from understanding the depth of it. With camera in hand he filmed and photographed the touching story of the youth of Kigamboni Community Center, Tanzania; the aftermath of the much hyped Jakartan dream; the village of Navakai, Fiji ravaged by natural disaster; and the vulnerability of the great white shark in Guadalupe island, Mexico coordinated with his brother Luke Tipple, the marine biologist.
Peter Kemp shares the same city as once inhabited by legendary painter Vermeer – Delft, Netherlands. And the 52 year old photographer is profoundly affected by the fact. His conceptual artwork on photographic plate bears the intensity of dramatic expressions so essential for an evocative experience of a good story in the frozen moment inside the ornate frame.
Sibylle’s work has all the elements of a quasi-mythic narrative bordering on the realms of fairy tale and science exploring the vulnerability of children and the pain experienced thereof. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that an old medical book of her grandfather, who was a doctor, with pictures of children suffering from various medical conditions has piqued her interest. Read on to explore and understand the artist and her creations.
Yulia’s work is a monologue, a continuous striving of exploring her own personality and her emotions from within. In her creative discourse she is the model and the photographer. And through her self-portraits she is tearing down the barriers within, that lie in each one of us, in her quest of knowing the ‘self’.
Jeff Ballard completed BFA from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, in 2000. He tried his hands in printmaking, painting, ceramics and successfully so. Yet, the charm of moulding glass into fascinating shapes became too irresistible an attraction for him and he happily surrendered into the pursuit of exploring the world of glass sculptures for the next decade or so. After a successful tenurity at various glass studios from Santa Fe to the Hill Country of Texas he embarked on his own individual journey in 2006. He relocated to Pacific Northwest where he set up Jeff Ballard Glass. In 2012 Jeff received the prestigious US Arts Envoy grant to travel to Berlin, Germany and develop a glass blowing program for young learners at Berlin Glas e.V.
