ANDRES SERRANO Photographer Andres Serrano was born and raised in New York, where he still lives and works today. The recurrent use of bodily fluids, employed most famously (or infamously) in his 1987 photograph Piss Christ, is one of Serrano’s trademarks. His images, which take inspiration from Renaissance painters, are powerful, technically adept and often controversial.

HEDVIG JENNING The idea for Jenning's shoot "Pastiche" came up when he and Martin Bergström spoke over dinner in New Dehli about different ways of shooting underwear. For Jenning, that is part of the beauty of photography - meeting someone, getting inspired and then getting to work. JASMIN STORCH Always drawn to the mistakes in life. To the odd, the "wrong" and misplaced elements. Jasmin is never satisfied, always full of doubt and gets inspired by depravation, the boundless, people full of flaws and humor. Prison documentaries, "I shouldn’t be alive", people who have lived interesting lives.
