Axel Hütte. (b. 1951, Essen, Germany)
“The most interesting thing is what ever is photographed, because that's where we see a different reality, implausible”.
Heir to a conceptual aesthetic from the teachings of Bernd and Hilla Becher, is presented, with Andreas Gursky and Thomas Ruff, as one of the most internationally photographer within the renowned Düsseldorf Art Academy.
His work, as he himself emphasizes, flee the abstract although rubbing and is neither a documentary testimony or a finished work but exploration of the impossible, so he confesses, he is able to spend several days contemplating the reflection of a tree in water or the way it makes waves.
Only when you are sure that you are seeing what you have never seen before, it has been observed long enough, and feel the rush "in the romantic style but its dark and sublime sense, revealing that the hallucination approaches" shoot his camera.
Axel Hütte lives and works in Dusseldorf and Berlin.

Sandra Kantanen. (b. 1974 in Helsinki, Finland)
"I studied Chinese lanscape painting and become completely obsessed with the idea of trying to understand their way of looking at nature".
Graduated from the University of Art and Design Helsinki, the famous Helsinki School, famous for a recognizable aesthetic despite the diversity of its component members and encourage teaching with a very creative approach almost no limits on personal expression each student. In addition to studying in Finland, she has continued forming at the Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in China.
The essence of his work lies in how the orientals are able to see and understand the nature and granted it the status of sacred on numerous occasions.
In looking for answers, she decided to venture into areas that had been immortalized by the iconography of ancient Chinese landscape and now because of the massification of sacred places by tourists or pollution, are shown in a very different way.
It was then that she realized that her picture is about something that no longer exists, which is theproduct of the search for an idealized image, so it went from going to photograph a landscape to create it directly, paying special attention to post-processing with the application of acrylic pigments.
