Aaron Feaver is based out of Los Angeles and currently focuses on fashion photography and portraits. He mainly focuses on younger women in landscapes and interiors. The quality of his work looks as though the film was just processed, and in some cases film is used. He likes to use film because of its unpredictable outcomes. He is in tune with the way people are capable of unique and unpredictable expression. His work is soft tones, often poetic. He mixes familiar fashion poses with awkward body positions.
He was first interested in more technical aspects of photography, concentrating on landscapes and objects.
In an interview, Aaron Feaver says he has been inspired by fashionably-outdated religious sects like the Amish. This can be seen in his project “Oh sister, Where art Thou?”. http://bentrovatoblog.com/photography/sister-art-thou-aaron-feaver/

Anne Hardy is a British photographer who is known for her fictitious photographs. Her work focuses on environments she constructs from scratch in her studio. She creates these very narrative and somewhat theatrical spaces which often give the viewer a feeling of desolation or separation. She creates this by using a lot of discarded objects that would be seen everyday by the people of London and placing them in a chaotic way to unsettle the visual orientation. She often repeats the objects and uses them as indicators that allude to previous human interaction.
Anne Hardy graduated with a MA from the Royal College of Art in 2000. She graduated from Cheltenham School of Art in 1993 with a painting degree. She has been published in several magazines such as Tank, Photography Now, and Art Review. Her work has been exhibited in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the Venice Biennale art festival and the Bellwether gallery in New York. She currently lives in works in London.
