Photography by Torkil Gudnanso

Originally from Denmark, Torkil Gudnanso approaches photography with a no-nonsense, Scandinavian sensibility. His style is simple and graphic. He prefers shooting in color in order to play various hues off one another. When asked to list three things he cannot live without as a photographer, his answer is appropriately succinct, light, light, and light.

As a ten year old boy, Torkil reveived his first camera, a Bolex Super-8. His first pictures were of a trip to Italy, which is where, many years later, Torkil would find his first success as an emerging fashion photographer.

Torkil's photography has appeared in Vogue, Maybelline, Pantene, MAC Cosmetics, L'Oreal, Piaget, Guerlain, Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and Bergdorf Goodman.

Landscape Photography by Akos Major

Amazing landscape photographs by Akos Major, 35-year-old, talented amateur photographer from Budapest, Hungary.Really sweet minimal composition, full of depth and detail. The images feature docks and water slides surrounded by unnaturally calm water, which looks as though everything is dead underneath. Its hard to believe water could be so flat, it almost looks as if the lake is frozen.
