    Jean-michel Berts

    Jean-Michel Berts collects the essence of cities. His glance is there to remind us of the grandeur of civilizations. The abstraction of characters makes it possible to put human construction forward and thus reanimate timelessness, whether Paris, New York, Venice or Tokyo. Jean-Michel Berts prefers to take pictures early in the morning because, as he likes to say, during this period of time, crossing emotions, feelings and atmosphere, this is always when the images come to me.

    The richness of Jean-Michel Berts photographs also comes from his technique. He uses the method of Ansel Adams called The Zone System. With an exposure time between nine seconds and ten minutes, this method of overexposing negatives and under-developing them allows a strong density, enhancing the contrast in black and white. Sous Les Etoiles Gallery also introduced a black and white carbon pigment collection. His unique vision of mystifying light compliments the carbon pigments rich deep blacks and infinitely subtle tonal variations giving a tribute to the early twentieth century Pictorialist movement.

    Despite a promising scientific career, Jean-Michel Berts chose a different path - to become a photographer. With his first Rolleiflex, he became sensitive to the effects of light. Since the eighties he has worked as a still life photographer. While involved in this field, he pursued a body of work with a more personal focus, called City Portraits.

    david zimmerman

    David Zimmerman is an American artist born in 1955 in Milwaukee, WI. He has received a number of awards and recognition for his work over the years, including the Sony World Photography Awards LIris Dor Grand Prize for his work in the deserts of the Southwest U.S. He currently works between New York City and Taos, New Mexico.

    The interaction between space and identity is a strong concern of the photographer David Zimmerman. With acuteness and talent, he explores the territories made by contiguity, infinity and exclusion where the human being is vulnerable.

    With his very bright and beautiful Desert series, the sublime and immaculate immensity is another reference to a land becoming desolate.

    The sometimes tranquil, sometimes fierce nature of the desert, and my own response and interaction with these environments inspired the first set of photographs. Beyond witnessing the sheer beauty and magnitude of the landscape, I began to feel a sense of the fragile balance of mans presence on the land. The desert can be haunting; in the dark, in the heat or in a storm, I feel my own vulnerability said the photographer.

    david zimmerman

    With Last Refuge, David Zimmerman brings us to New Mexicos vast desert, where a community of people, who by choice or by circumstance, live in a place with no electricity or water. These people are not outcasts or drifters however - on the contrary; they are quite happy to live on the fringe, as far as possible from the mainstream. Their homes are primitive shelters fashioned from good intentions, scraps, and eventually clothing. As the weight of the roofs eventually collapsed on homes, people moved on. There is a hidden beauty in many things, and the pile of abandoned clothing attracted me at first by its palette and form and its odd 2-dimensionality - having been beaten for decades by the relentless desert climate said the photographer. Clothing is the primary protection for human beings, and when nothing else is left; it stands as their last land and home. In a surgical close-up and focus on garments, with the density, the contrast, and the sharpness of all details, his work appears to be a true archeology of the human soul.

    Even though the clothes are damaged or forgotten, the remnants depict an individual challenge, an individual journey questioning our own identity and how to accept and overcome a fluctuating reality.Zimmermans series reveals the balance between a wandering and sedentary life. Here lives the desire to escape, an ability to settle and the strength to move forward.

    J in-Ya hUanG

    Jin-Ya Huangs photographs resonate with a rhythm while their abstraction paves the way for an entirely new form of representation. These abstract, complex, and intimate images examine memories and explorations into my childhood and growing experiences as a Taiwanese American explains Huang. As she captures symbolic lines, Jin-Ya Huang gathers remote memories in order to save them from loss and overcome her past. In fact, these autobiographical works called Remote incorporate natural occurrences, modern technology, and, in some instances, elements of her own body.

    Upon arrival to the United States after being raised in Taipei, Taiwan, until the age of 13, Jin-Ya Huang was inspired to remember her childhood and relate it to her new life. As she struggled with her East-West identity, dealing with issues of being an Asian woman in America, Huang realized this was a subject she wanted to address in her work. She found her translation through abstract photography, by which she is able to convey her history with meaning, hold on to the present, and project the future.

    The work of Jin-Ya Huang part of privante and museum collections, has been exhibited in several solo and group show in United States.

    harUna Kawanishi

    With the series Call Sign Haruna Kawanishi introduces us to an allegorical and urban interpretation of Snow White. The apple drove Little Snow White to death by just one bite, and it also chased Adam and Eve from The Garden of Eden. A woman is moving up and down, in parallel, and going around connections between external worlds.

    Haruna Kawanishi might be one of the artists who express her life in her works. The melody played by the plural personalities in the work, their glances which never come across each other, the carefully selected colors and tones like the touch of tender skin, the time axis punctually flown over the story, all of them are delicately woven in the context of her original world says Naoko Otha, gallery director of Gallery 21 in Tokyo.

    Born in Tokyo, in 1979, Haruna Kawanishi is Graduate from Nihon University College of Art in 2002. Haruna Kawanishi got in photography in 2005, since then, she participated in the Vendome Photography Festival in 2008 and won the 2009 International Photography Award in Los Angeles.She currently resides and works in Tokyo, Japan.

    Kiiro

    This lyrical series titled Symphony shines a ray that not only distinguishes the particular details of the subject, but also brings with it a narrative aspect to the cosmos. These photographs depict a fragile and stirring existence which exhibits uniqueness through colors that are vibrant, strong, and shine brilliantly with the forces of life.

    The photomontage technique contributes to reinforcing the photographers vision, layering the images over and over, the photographs are strengthened with a new time and space dimension.

    Kiiro came to the fore in 2010 with his series Dream and Dreams2, which have been exhibited at Ber Neue and the Hanjiro Gallery, both in Tokyo. Symphony was exhibited at the New York Photo Festival in May 2011.

    Kiiro was also part of the group show Breezeless dedicated to Contemporary Japanese photography, hosted by Sous Les Etoiles gallery in June 2011.

    Born in Yokohama in 1978, Kiiro graduated from Meisei University. He currently lives and works between Tokyo and Yokohama.
