Chema Madoz - www.chemamadoz.com
This Spaniard shows a strain of formal surrealism not often seen these days. Chema Madoz creates unlikely constructions that are surprisingly funny. A hard-boiled egg shares a crack with its eggcup, a melting ice cube is neatly tied with a bow, and a burned-out match seems to be on fire, but it's the perfectly formed knots in the wooden board on which it rest that create the effect.

James Nachtwey - www.jamesnachtwey.com
is at the present time the most famous war photographer. Over the previous twenty years he has become a legend: photographing the toughest world conflicts from the closest range possible. He has proven that he can work even in the hardest conditions. To look at him though you wouls hardly get the image of some kind of Rambo figure as he wears neither a helmet nor a bulletproof vest. His trademark look is more the clean white shirt and a vest over it with many pockest and a pair of comfortable jeans. His well coiffed greying hair gives one the impression of a university professor, not the invincable photographer walking into the line of fire.

"Photography has arrived quite late in my life, but furtunately passions has no time, so at 28 years old I took the camera in my hand without knowing that after a while my desire would be to keep it there forever. To take pictures bacame something that went over the simple image realization and has changed deeply my way to experience life and to relate to the other people."
Eolo Perfido lives and works in Rome.

Photographer Matthew Pillsbury uses extremely long exposures to create eerie, ambient-light images that juxtapose technology's permanence with human transience.
Bill Schwab - www.billschwab.com
Bill Schwab's ethereal, dreamlike photographs—a fog-shrouded bridge, a fountain seen at dusk, reeds reflected in the smooth surface of a pond—are paeans to solitude. Given the quiet, meditative quality of the pictures, it's not surprising that Schwab prefers to photograph at dusk or at dawn, and often in inclement weather, when he's bound to be alone. What might be surprising is that many of the photographs are taken in and around his native city of Detroit, a place not generally associated with the almost pastoral views found in his images.
William Scott - www.williamscottart.com
William Scott's interest in photography was sparked in his youth, when his father built a small home darkroom. The mystery of the darkroom was intriguing and activities in it were never ignored. Later, his desire to explore his environment was kindled by his family's regular trips to Ireland (the country of his parents' birth). These trips heightened his awareness of the power of the senses, place, and the unknown.
