10   MARIA LAX 
“This image is a part of my first photo series I started in 2015. It was inspired by the stories told to me by people local to my small town who had had supernatural and otherworldly experiences. I was told stories of how bright lights would appear in the forests at night, making the landscape awash with beautiful, vivid colours…”

9   TOBY HARVARD
“I am from London. I am a Fetish Screenwriter and Fetish Photographer using 35mm film. My fetishes are probably obvious to anyone who sees my photos. I love deep bold colour, intense eyebrows, the textures of blonde hair and cities lit up at night…”

8   TANIA FRANCO KLEIN
“I am a Mexican photographer currently based in Mexico City. My work is highly influenced by my fascination with social behaviour and contemporary practices. These consist of leisure, consumption, media overstimulation, emotional disconnection and the psychological sequels they generate in our everyday life…”

7   NATALIE CHRISTENSEN
“I am very much inspired by abstract painters and sculptors. Gerry Bonetti [@gerrybonetti] has an incredible account and posts gorgeous contemporary paintings and sculpture regularly. His account is one of my favourites because I get a daily dose of museum quality art in one place…”

6   ALESSANDRO CALVI
“I was looking for the empty and lonely countryside burned by the sun in the center and south of Italy where, after the Second World War, many peasants emigrated to foreign countries such as the USA or northern Europe. Now it looks like an ancient landscape which has crossed centuries of relationship with man’s work…”

5   AGORAPHOBIC TRAVELLER
Almost two years ago, Jacqui Kenny sought out a creative outlet to alleviate her severe agoraphobia and found refuge in Google Street View. She began clicking through Google Maps to navigate to faraway countries like Mongolia, Senegal and Chile; she found remote towns and dusty landscapes, vibrant architectural gems and anonymous people, all frozen in time…

4   SIMON ÅSLUND
“The idea of taking photos came from a friend of mine who introduced me to analog photography not too long ago. Since then I’ve been trying to capture my surroundings in strange ways, creating some sort of alternative reality. I wouldn’t necessarily considered myself a photographer, I’m just a regular guy stuck in neon dreams…”

3   PATRICK McCORMACK
“I spend many early mornings driving through small towns, creating portraits of a place and time. Given the four distinct seasons the American Northeast has to offer, the tone tends to follow a cyclical shift throughout the year. Stillness and isolation are themes that I hope come through in my work, along with a sense of familiarity…”

2   ARNAUD MONTAGARD
“This is part of my last series Slice of Light, highlighting lonely people in the crowded city of New York. This series is above all a story about lights. The sunlight creates geometrical forms and places the people at the middle of the scene like if they were performing on stage. The strong shadows create a feeling that make the pictures look like paintings…”

1   CHRISTOPHE JACROT
“I’m from Paris. I’ve been working on Bad Weather for 8 years. Rain and snow. I love uncovering the drama and poetry of harsh weather. The pics in this takeover are a mix of Iceland, Russia, Chicago, and Canada…”
