LOST, 2013

Bev Pettit
Skull Valley, Arizona, USA

My life as an artist began at an early age. Throughout the educational and work stages of my life I incorporated art classes, teaching and a career as an artist in whichever ways were possible at the time. Because I travelled and worked in many countries it became difficult to express my creativity through such usual artistic mediums as paints and brushes. It was in the early 1990s, when I moved to Asia, that I picked up my first camera as I set out to travel the back roads of China, Vietnam, Thailand, India and Malaysia. I never looked back. At that time I knew that the camera was the tool that I wanted to use to explore and develop a new creative process that was exciting and alive with new possibilities for growth and expansion as a photographic artist.

Rooftops,  China, 2011

Gloria Golden

Plainview, New York, USA, Black and white photography appeals to me because it is more soulful and creates a particular mood. Although the subject matter of my photographs includes almost anything to which I’m attracted, my great joy is in photographing people. My goal is to discover what they’re all about through the lens of the camera. Traveling to various parts of the world allows me to photograph the unusual landscapes that offer their own special drama ...often magical in appearance. “Rooftops” was taken in China, and I couldn’t avoid becoming spellbound as the mist settled on the rooftops of the market stalls near the Yangtze River. ggoldenimages.com

Ivy Bigbee

Whether “capturing fireflies in a bottle”—how Ivy Bigbee describes photographing global entity, Cirque du Soleil for “Portraits from the Cirque du Soleil” (1999-2000)—or in revealing how a US postage stamp she created memorializes the husband she lost in Vietnam, Bigbee ‘s fine art/ editorial photography is internationally published and nationally exhibited.

Bridge to Nowhere, 2009

Joan E. Bowers
Seattle, Washington, USA

I grew up in Pennsylvania in an area where the land was subjected to degradation through the pursuit of coal. For the past decade, I have been searching for and photographing landscapes, waterscapes and various aspects of Northwest geography in an effort to discover scenes that I find soothing and supportive of a momentary and meditative respite from daily life. It is my hope that viewers of my work find this same opportunity for respite, however brief.  irongatephotography.net

Coin Operated, Static series, 2013

Los Angeles, California, USA

I'm a mostly self-taught fine art photographer. I work primarily in black and white, both digitally and on film. Although I studied psychology and sociology, I worked through college at photo developing and printing labs. For me, the photographic process isn't complete until it is on paper. My work is a combination of street photography, urban landscape, and visual storytelling.
