Roy Toft: If you enjoy wildlife photography, the Roy Toft’s galleries are sure to please. Toft’s images focus on not just the wildlife specimen, but the characteristics that make the subject unique. His images have been featured in National Geographic, Audubon, and Discover magazine. In addition to his photography, Toft conducts photographic workshops in the area of wildlife imaging.

Shen Wei: Shen Wei’s project “Almost Naked” employs a great use of composition to convey emotion. In his artistic statement for the project, Wei says, “growing up in Mainland China, I was brought up strictly and conservatively, any untraditional and unconventional ideas of life-style can sometimes lead to misconceptions. I was numbed about the ideas of intimacy, sexuality and love. Since I moved to the United States, my needs for self-expression has grown. However, my curiosity about how others deal with their identity in what is a fairly open society like America has increased. As a result I started to photograph people and life in America. The goal of my projects are to raise the question about human nature, about emotions, feelings, desire, instinct and identity, to reveal things that you can feel it, that are unexplainable but yet still solid. I am fascinated with exploring the complexity of emotional nakedness and psychological connection/disconnection, as it is often expressed not specifically but explicitly.”

Carlos and Jason Sanchez: The Sanchez brothers have a unique way of photographing the world. The Montreal-based photographers have worked on numerous projects utilizing their unique – and sometimes shocking – use of composition.
