Andrea Galvani

Andrea Galvani takes wonderfully surreal images as well as other paintings and drawings. The images seem quite comical at first view but the longer the images are looked at they become almost sinister. See more of the work at: http://www.andreagalvani.com/

Sophie Ristelhueber

Sophie Ristelhueber takes large scale landscapes often capturing war torn parts of the country. Focusing on the physical signs of the destruction left behind, almost like focusing on a scar after a wound, the work captures the visible signs of what the violence left behind.

David Lynch

Probably the most exciting news of the photographic year has to be the release of a series of still images made in collaboration with the musician danger mouse for his album Dark night of the soul in which he sings as well. Like his film work im sure we can expect alot of dark, mysterious images which have a nod at small town america. See more of the work at: http://www.dnots.com/

Zero 8

Zero 8 are a part of the ntu photoradar festival that is sadly over now but well worth a look if you can find more of their work then do. This group took the idea of portraiture to its widest spectrum and each series is confident in its definition. Eleanor Mayne, Neil Pemberton and Ross Shields, were particularly of interest from Neils documentary of the igloo centre in nottingham to Eleanors challenging of staged conventional portraits to the way Ross's work challenges fashion portraiture.
