2. Ashkan Honarvar

The saying goes that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It occurs in places you least expect.
Revealing its art in the human body, but also cruelly absent in the presence of deformations and scars.
Ashkan Honarvar (1980) depicts an undeniable, unavoidable beauty by accepting the darker sides of human ‘nature’.

The body, torn by acts of war, exploited by the sex industry or used as a tool for seeking identity, is
the focal point of his work.This constitutes a search for a universal representation of the evil latent in every human,
providing an opportunity for reflection. His aesthetic dissection has an intriguing macabre nature,
which opens the images to interpretation.

Honarvar’s almost empiric exploration of the human condition knows no bounds. Its goal; the indefinable core.

Tomozei Maximilian on Tomozei Maximilian: 

I'm Tomozei Maximilian
I was born in Transylvania in '86 and grew up in Bucharest.
I moved to France in 2002 where i studyed photography for a couple of years.
I currently live in Paris here i work as a computer graphics technician and also as a photographer.


My work is based on the distance between reality and perception of reality.
The photographic gesture captures a slight and precise moment; this first step allows me to record an event and his visual context.

I' m interested into changing that moment, modelling it until it earns a totally new meaning or the amplified initial one,
Therefore I create moods and surroundings that allow me to get close to one precise moment that I once lived or may not be able to.

It's a surreal alternative to field photography witch I rarely have the occasion to deliver myself to, mostly because of my everyday activities as a computer graphics technician; being stuck in front of the screen one must travel to his own imagination in order to express himself.

I tend to transform everyday pictures into mood containers.
Often typology gathered to form subjects surrounding the initial state of mind; therefore my work cannot have a linear chronological cycle, but rather a chaotic one.

I use a vignetting because I like thinking that the visual memory storage woks that way therefore it' s easier and much more suitable to tell a story focusing on the canter and then exploring the rest,
Analogue photography offers me enough grain to separate my work from hyper realistic photography and gives me a more pictorial approach; film photography also offers me patient habits and an equal amount of discipline and chaos. I often use out of focus effects, the dreamy mood witch we cannot see by ourselves.

I was born in Romania, and moved to France a while ago, I am trying to gather the two pictures together on the same canvas in order to always feel like home...

For Zoran Nova, growing up as a twin in Sydney’s inner
suburbs was the driving force at an early age to be unique
in his own right.

Over the years Zoran has broken away from the mould and
asserted his own flare to the artistic world. His background
in design has put him in good stead as an up coming
designer, artist and illustrator on the booming Australian

with other mediums, being influenced heavily by pop culture
and life around him.
