Born and based in the Midwest, Michael McCluskey explores truth in overlooked places and uncovers hidden layers in the mundane. His photos are a natural extension of an interest in film and music – deeply cinematic scenes dripping with tension and a Crewdson-esque fantasia.
Andria Darius Pancrazi is a PhD researcher in English Literature at Oxford University, specialising in Victorian poetry and teaching French translation. For him, photography and visual arts are an extension of poetry; he creates dreamscapes, that are often accompanied with bits of text, either his, or quotes from classical texts.
Born in Texas, Kelsey McClellan is a contemporary photographer who calls upon the everyday through a minimalist lens devoid of further context. Working with prop stylist Michelle Maguire, she creates polished compositions that call upon informal diner culture and the globalised food industry.
