1. Daniel Sannwald

The German photographer Daniel Sannwald was born in 1979. He has become a well-known name in the fashion community for his completely original, arty style.

A favourite of noted magazine Dazed & Confused, Sannwald regularly works with Japanese publications like Popeye as well as magazines from Spain (Suite), Germany (The Family Tune, Liebling), China (Vision) and Portugal (Nothing Last Forever).

Daniel Sannwald’s photos are the polar opposite of natural. They are futuristic, experimental and artistic. He works in a studio and alters all of his images with computers, playing with filters, light and contrast. His perfected technique and refreshingly unique style has led him to be in high demand from fashion professionals everywhere.

8. Kareena Zerefos


Kareena Zerefos
Born August 1983

Kareena is a Sydney born, London based artist, designer and self-confessed daydreamer who collects fine bone china tea sets, but prefers to drink coffee.

She has an unhealthy obsession with dangerously sharp 2B pencils, which may or may not be associated with her perfectionist Virgo tendencies… and her pencils, along with a yearning to escape to a world of make believe, lead her to create whimsical illustrative work with a sense of isolation and bittersweet nostalgia.

Having studied design at the College of Fine Arts (UNSW), Kareena’s work often combines traditional drawing with contemporary graphic techniques, with which she has the pleasure of working across a range of commercial projects for the music, fashion and advertising industries.

She loves the word ‘elephant’ (isn’t it just the best word ever?), her Italian greyhound called Pelle and visiting natural history museums.
