Marcin Sobas (Poland)
The Polish photographer Marcin Sobas has a body of work that speaks to a photography maxim: Nature is still the best subject. The endless cycle of birth, growth, death and rebirth; the arc of the sun and the moon in a 24 hour period; the play of clouds and fog as both filter and subject… Sobas benefits from his sense of timing and his appreciation for Nature as Subject, to capture the right light, the right fog and the right angle, and then, make some places look magical.

Mark Thompson is a British born artist, currently lives and works in Germany. He has an intense fascination with wintry landscapes and depicts the kind of environment that compels most people to retreat indoors. His primary drive as an artist is to try to make sense of his place in the world. Through the caprices and inconsistencies memory, Mark Thompson hopes to access a kind of collective memory of place. He does not seek to illustrate a particular place in point of fact, but rather develop and ultimately “make” a version of the world seen through the isolation of personal memories. The mind/body distinction - the phenomena of the mind seeming to look out at the world from behind the eyes - forms the basis of his attempt to understand and record the world through his own consciousness.
