As natural observers, we learn and understand with our fives senses—that is, until they’re impeded by things such as geography or time, in which case we look to outside experiences to fabricate our own. Enter photography: the window to shared places, moments and experiences from which we inform our own by others’ documented memories. For photographer Yoav Friedländer, those shared memories are more than memories, but opportunities to develop personal meaning and effect.
To Justin Clifford Rhody—an Oakland, CA native with free-form photography down to an archival science of sorts—the experience of a photograph is to be interpreted by the experiencer, whether that lives in his interactions with subject and film or in the onlooker’s self-diagnosis of a photo’s weight.
Canon EOS 70D in hand, New York photographer and amadeus frequenter David Dyte set forth on the city with one word in mind: 'hodgepodge.'

Last summer Rob Collins got laid off from his job. Within a week of unemployment him and his brother Paul, found themselves, on the road; their car packed with skateboards, and a plan to trek across the United States.
The confined chaos within Carter Quick's images and short videos hits you instantly, as though the vibrant disorder within each shot is actively trying to push its way through the edges of the photograph.
With an embedded obligation for exploring all of it, Mongeau has made traveling his art form as innately as photography—his photos are harmonious with his travels; his travels, harmonious with his work. Saturated not only in natural hues and depths but in experiences, Mongeau’s work captures the staunch essence of living—without fear and without graveness—perfectly nested between the beauties of reality and escapism.
I wish I could say my interest in photography started in my youth. I’d like to tell you someone handed me a camera and encouraged me to start snapping away before I tripped into the limiting sensibilities of adulthood.
David Dyte is a walking contradiction: an Australian-Brooklynite-mathematician-photographer. With a discerning eye and a knack for problem solving, he sees his adopted borough as it is–a medley of offsetting sights, sounds and people all reverberating off of one another.
