Gina Soden

Gina Soden is an Architecture Photographer who travels all across Europe in the search of abandoned buildings to shoot. Inside these derelict structures she takes exquisite photographs, showcasing everything from grand old chateaus to deserted power stations. There’s a strong sense of history and memory imbued into each of these photos, and a certain melancholy longing for days gone by. Her piece Grand Nouveau shows an elegant staircase littered with debris, expressing a kind of sad beauty in the decay of this old structure.

Vikram Kushwah

If you’re looking for more fantastical creations, then contemporary photographer Vikram Kushwah is a great pick. His [Surrealist Photography] depicts dreamlike scenes that appear to be straight out of a fairy tale. These shots are completely captivating and take on interesting subjects, inviting the viewer to lose themself in the picture. Woman in the Mirror 2 shows Vikram’s narrative skill within the medium of photography. Individual elements of the composition reveal themselves slowly, and we are left wondering what happened to the woman in the mirror and how nature took over the inside of this house.

Marianne Nix

Discover intriguing techniques with the work of Marianne Nix, a contemporary artist who makes use of photography, digital tools, printmaking and glazes to create her multi-layered works. These photographs often focus on natural forms, portraying them in new lights and hues that encourage the viewer to reconsider these familiar images. Her photography has an almost abstract quality, as the techniques that she uses tend to distort the image, creating shapes and colours rather than recognisable objects.

Whatever your style, we’re on hand to help you find the perfect artwork for you. For those just beginning to buy art and seasoned collectors alike, there are plenty of exciting contemporary photographers creating art today.
