Dino Kužnik (@dinokuznik):
Dino Kužnik is a New York based Photographer and Graphic Designer, originally from Slovenia, Europe. He uses photography as a medium to immortalize scenes that are aesthetically unique, with an emphasis on color and composition. Solitude is a driving factor behind Dino's photographs. His work reflects a peaceful state of mind, one only attainable after total immersion within the environment he works in. Experienced as a journalistic photographer and retoucher, he now mostly focuses on his personal body of work – a documentation of the American Landscape, whilst experimenting with different techniques.
KangHee Kim (@tinycactus):
Photographer Kanghee Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea and recieved her B.F.A degree from Maryland Institute College of Art. She juxtaposes day-to-day moments to create scenes that peek into an alternate world, subtly placing faux reflections in coils of cable or in the streak of a rear windshield. The Brooklyn-based photographer’s manipulations come from the desire to manifest magical moments in the mundane, using post-production edits as an additional artistic medium within her work.
Ben Zank (@benzank):
Ben Zank is a New York based visual artist. Working spontaneously, Zank uses location and the intricacies of a landscape to build a dialogue between people and the space they fill. His work has often been described as surreal, whimsical, and humorous.
