Today I would like to share with you a story about three very talented new artists – Agnes, Ape and Martin who asked me if I would like to feature their work in my blog.  The request came somewhat unexpected since I have never collaborated with artists in such a form before, however I decided to give it a go and share with you their stories, passions and works.  Hope you will like it as much as I do.

Please meet Agnes, a Canadian photographer who came to this country on a dream expecting to be disappointed by an all too rough reality but fell into a magic well of creative minds in the most unexpected place.  Here is her story:

You might be transported to other continents by some pictures, but I am travelling within your daily life in these places we ignore or are disturbed by.

Visiting a friend who works out of sewage treatment and water filtration centres in and around Sydney, I went into the centre of the earth and back, deep into the belly of the city where its guts had the gloomy look and smell of a putrid dragon. Most of the places are surrounded by glorious sceneries, offering a world of deep contrasts. Industrial grounds in the mountains or on the ocean shores are hidden to the public but so ever extravagant and rich. The major theme is water in all its forms, salty or fresh, clean or soiled.

I started to collect photographs illustrating my journey, but then I came across a microcosm of incredible talented artists using their unusual visions and imagination to make a difference around them. A world of inspiration, storytelling, charades and intellectuals games started to unfold in front of my eyes. I recognized it was once in a life time chance and unimaginable gift.”
