I am Ryan Koopmans (BA, MFA) a photographer driven by the interdisciplinary practices of geography, art history, and psychology. Born in Amsterdam (1986) I was raised on Vancouver Island Canada, completed my undergraduate education at UBC in Vancouver, and in 2012 received a Masters of Fine Art Photography & Video at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. I am primarily interested in photographing the points of intersection where the natural and manmade converge. I'm drawn to surreal structures in our world's megacities and urban landscapes. Formal aesthetic qualities in their geometry, repetition and saturation help me illustrate the poetry of form in these fantastical locations. Based in Amsterdam, I work on assigned and independent photography projects around the world. I also shoot with commercial clients as well as architects, magazines, and other publications. For my advertising work, visit www.sirencreatives.com where I am the head of photography.

Simon Wald-Lasowski (Paris, 1980) is a freelance photographer and art director. He makes colorful, fun, twisted work by use of bricolage, word play and 'cliché bending'. Lighthearted at first sight, his images often reveal a certain depth on second inspection. His approach is always very personal, which blur the boundaries between autonomous and commissioned work. He lives in Amsterdam and graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2004 as a graphic designer. Occasionally he also works as a Wedding MC.

My works can be described as ‘post-graffiti art’. The approach, attitude and application of my designs are heavily influenced by graffiti and street art. I am fascinated by today’s zeitgeist but am also critical about it. Street art is an art movement in which many inspiring things are happening and where I feel at home. With a spray I can visually express what I cannot do with a pencil. However, I would like to go deeper than the sometimes superficial appearance of graffiti and street art and highlight those aspects that make the viewer think. I would like to express my thoughts visually, either in a clear statement or in an experiment with a still unknown outcome, which can lead to something new.

Amsterdam based illustrator Sue Doeksen (1982) creates worlds that are overpopulated with bright colors, friendly shapes, layered or light concepts and hidden jokes. Mediums ranging from physical, digital, pencil-drawn, paper-cut, and animated. Juggling commercial and personal project balls she is often overwhelmed because there are so many visual adventures to be made at the same time and therefore wishes there were just many more hours in a day.
