Chris Brock is a portrait and fashion photographer who uses the world around him - inside and out - as a backdrop for his shoots. Having lived and worked in New York and London, the urban and the suburban are as much a part of his pictures as the people he photographs, creating texture, depth and atmosphere that suggests a story behind the images, like a moment stolen from a movie. Conveying emotions that are at times dark, at times tongue-in-cheek, there is often an unsettling urgency about his photographs that is at once both challenging and engaging but always aesthetically fresh.

Mel Upjohn is a talented artist from New Zealand's capital city, Wellington. Her work is known for textures - both visual and tactile. She describes her latest range of work as lighthearted and a "bit pop art" but is always atmospheric. Mel prefers to leave interpretation up to the viewer. Nick Archer from Salient Magazine comments that "she has no preconceived idea of what each work is about and just lets her emotion evolve through the images... [they are] demanding attention with repeated viewings". Enjoy!
