Aaron Kotowski New York

Aaron Kotowski is the undisputed master of two critical life skills: stealing souls with his camera and writing about himself in third person. 

One of Aaron’s most meaningful assignments of 2023 was photographing Sir Salman Rushdie for the September cover of Le Point Magazine. No big deal. Aaron has long admired Rushdie and was honored to photograph the revered author after narrowly surviving a brutal assassination attempt the previous year. Rushdie is a rare prototype of man, who bends fate to his will. To nobody’s surprise, the shoot was an unmitigated success. 

It is unknown why distinguished corporations and magazines hire Kotowski to photograph prominent and influential people, but the man cannot be stopped.

Alex Waber Vancouver

"The beauty of photography is that it can celebrate what is in front of the camera. For a brief moment the sitter and their ideas, hopes and dreams get idolised in a sliver of time. So taking a portrait is more than saying ''Turn a little more to the left". It begins with a relationship, a conversation between the photographer and the subject. We need to get to know each other, become friends, even if just for that short period of time while we are together. The photographer has to be curious about the person and about the world, digging in to perspectives and bringing up stories, or having the subject demonstrate a process or lead a tour of a place. Once that relationship is formed, we are comfortable and we are honest with each other, I can finally add "Chin up a smidge, and turn a little more to the left"."

Alex Waber is a portrait and commercial photographer based out of Vancouver, Canada. His work has been published in Vogue, Wired, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Montecristo and Forbes, to name a few. His clients include Section 35, Arc’teryx, Kit and Ace and Tilley Endurables.

Portraits are what got Waber started in photography over 15 years ago, and are still one of his favourite projects to dive in to, as its always an opportunity to learn new things about the subjects and the world they inhabit.

Brano Gilan Paris

"As a photographer, I love to discover. Sometimes it's places that you would not visit otherwise, sometimes it's people with whom you create a strong bond in very short time and you may never see again.

This time I met a class of children that are becoming teenagers, and together we created a dance film. They live in the Paris suburbs with no good reputation, but they have so many dreams. I was so moved by their presence and strength. There is even more in their eyes than words can tell.

At the same time I continue to work for Hermès, Courreges, Saint Laurent and others as a photographer and video maker."
