Elena Kalis – Alice in Waterland

Russian-born photographer Elena Kalis has been residing in Bahamas for the past decade and started flirting with photography only a few years ago, although she has an artistic education. She admits the ocean is her main source of inspiration, and for her most acclaimed series, Alice In Waterland, she used her own daughter, Sascha, as a model for Alice. The result, as you can see, is a colorful, fascinating, surrealist world.

Stefan Caltia – Dramatic art

Stefan Calţia is a contemporary painter from Bucharest, Romania. Combining personal experiences (running away with the circus) with a vivid imagination, Calţia manages to create dramatic characters, which remind the viewer of both Byzantine iconic figures and theatre-like characters, similar to those of Hieronymus Bosch.
