Alex F. Webb (UK)
Alex's work deals with storytelling in relation to notions of place and landscape. In September 2015 he self-published 'Blind Landing Experimental Unit (BLEU)' which pictorially reinterprets events and evidence relating to a famous UFO conspiracy theory that began with an alleged landing in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk. In November 2015 BLEU was shortlisted for The Anamorphosis Prize, whilst an exhibition of work from the book was held at Webber Gallery Space in London.
Between 2009 and 2014 Alex co-ran Fourteen Nineteen, a photobook publisher geared towards championing younger artists.
Jonas Feige (DE)
Jonas' photographic approach aims to explore and uncover things that can only be revealed and grasped through the filter of a camera lens illuminating moments and sights that would otherwise pass by unnoticed. The aim of these images is to convey a sentiment or a thought that would challenge the viewer and his or her perception.
Jonas received training in Media and Graphic Design from 2009–2012. In 2012 he moved to Berlin to study photography at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie. He graduated in October 2015 with the series 'Nacht auf der Sonne', which won the Conscientious Portfolio Competition 2015.
