Fay Pitta,is a talented photographer with a passion for horses and an artistic perspective, is one such creative genius. Through her lens, she transports viewers into a dreamy, surreal world where horses become the stars of her enchanting visual narratives.One of the key elements of her work is her innovative approach to photography. She often uses different lenses and angles to create images that challenge the conventional boundaries of the medium.
But what truly sets is her dedication to her craft. She doesn't just visit the farm sporadically to snap a few shots of the horses; she immerses herself in their world. Often living on the farm for extended periods, she forms deep connections with the animals. This intimate relationship allows her to capture the essence of their lives, their interactions, and their daily rituals with a level of authenticity and insight that is truly remarkable.
As she continues to live among her equine subjects, her photographic journey evolves, and her artistry deepens. Her work reminds us that sometimes, all it takes is a camera, a passionate heart, and a profound connection to nature to create something truly magical. Fay Pitta, the photographer who turns horses into dreams, continues to enchant us with her captivating vision, and we eagerly anticipate what new wonders her lens will reveal in the future.
Photo Official Member @Riki Nihongi
Nihongi's photography offers an intimate glimpse into his world, allowing us to see life through his eyes. His subjects often include ordinary yet profoundly personal moments, scenes from his room, and the mesmerizing light trails that seep through his window. These seemingly simple subjects are elevated to artistic brilliance through his lens, capturing the magic hidden in the mundane.
One of the most striking aspects of his work is his unwavering commitment to black and white photography. While color photography can be captivating in its own right, Nihongi's decision to work exclusively in monochrome adds a layer of depth and timelessness to his art. Black and white photographs have an unparalleled ability to strip away distractions and focus the viewer's attention on the raw emotions and details within the frame. Beyond the lens, he studies ''art market and culture''. His deep understanding of these realms allows him to navigate the complex world of art photography. He not only creates captivating images but also curates and presents his work to the world in a way that resonates with his audience.

In an age where body image issues and self-doubt are prevalent, Moschopoulos's work serves as a powerful reminder of the beauty of self-acceptance. His photographs celebrate the diversity of the human body, showcasing bodies of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds. In doing so, he empowers his subjects and viewers alike to embrace their own uniqueness and beauty.
One of the most compelling aspects of his work is his exploration of vulnerability. Through his lens, he captures moments of profound introspection, where the human subjects are unburdened by societal norms and expectations. In his photographs, vulnerability is not a weakness but a source of strength and authenticity.
While aesthetic beauty is an undeniable element of his work, it is not the sole focus. His photographs are rich in symbolism, often conveying deeper narratives. Each image invites viewers to contemplate the stories and emotions hidden within the frame, making his work not just visually captivating but intellectually stimulating as well.In doing so, he reminds us that art has the power to inspire, provoke, and, most importantly, to celebrate the human spirit.

Photo Official Member @Metaxia Vintiadi
Metaxia Vintiadi possesses a rare talent for capturing the very essence of Photography, not through clichéd postcard images, but through the authenticity of everyday life. Her photographs are a testament to her keen observation skills and a deep understanding of her subjects and their surroundings. What sets her work apart is her remarkable ability to infuse symbolic elements into her compositions, elevating ordinary moments to extraordinary art.
In addition to her knack for composition, Metaxia's choice of subjects and moments is a testament to her intuition as a photographer. She has an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time, capturing the raw, unfiltered emotions of her subjects. Her images are a reflection of the human experience, filled with joy, sadness, love, and resilience.
It was during one such excursion that she captured the now-iconic photograph in the cemetery. A solemn scene, where a man stands in the light behind a graceful angelic statue. The image exudes an eerie beauty, and upon first glance, one can't help but wonder about the story behind the man and his connection to the monument. Metaxia Vintiadi, in her inimitable style, encapsulated a deeply enigmatic narrative within a single frame.
