Cyrill Matter

about
Cyrill Matter was born and raised in Zurich, studied commerce and got a position in an ad agency. On a whim, and out of boredom, he bought a cheap camera. He started taking pictures – and was bitten. Within a year he had left his job; he spent the next 12 months intensively learning the skills of a photographer, working as a photography assistant while reading and watching everything he could get his hands on relating to the topic. After that relatively short time, he decided to strike out on his own and try to make it as a professional photographer. Not long afterwards, sitting in a New York café, he encountered a German creative director – Thomas Hayo – who agreed to view what was then a thin portfolio. The rest is history: with Hayo’s encouragement Matter moved to New York and had been signed by photography agent Marek Milewic. Within four months. Since then he has established himself as a respected photographer, particularly in the fields of portraiture and men’s fashion. 
For Matter, photography ultimately belongs not on a screen but in print. He has enjoyed working for publications like GQ, Vanity Fair USA, L’Uomo Vogue or Das Magazin. This love for a haptic object is also why he decided to produce ‘Chapter One’, so that he and others could review and share his work to date while holding it in their hands – in time, and as his work evolves, chapters two, three etc. will follow. 
Matter’s fashion photography is inspired by the work of icons including Richard Avedon and Helmut Newton, among many others whose work he admires. On editorial fashion shoots, Matter does not want to illustrate a fait accompli or to state the obvious; he often stages dynamic gestures of which we catch just a glimpse, or elaborate scenarios in which the viewer can guess at the narrative unfolding. Working in men’s fashion, Matter can imagine himself within these images, his work an ongoing investigation of men’s different experiences in the world.

Elena Iv-skaya

about
Elena Iv-Skaya is a Russian-born fashion photographer.
Her work is an ode to beauty and colour. With her strong artistic vision, she takes us to a dashing world of saturated hues, high contrasts and bold feminine figures. “I am fascinated by beauty,” says Elena. “Beauty is often an unexpected result. You have to look for it, but not too much otherwise it will slip away. You have to let it come to you like a wild animal that is hard to approach… it’s an endless quest.” Her universe cannot leave anyone indifferent: the incredibly rich and well-curated colour palette, combined with her graphic, almost essential compositions, turn her photographs into wonderful painting-like creations.

about the artwork
Vibrant Horizons: Elena Iv-Skaya for Africa is Now Elena Iv-Skaya keeps pushing creative progression with her Imprint feature for Africa is Now Magazine. Elena’s stark compositions and rich colour stories create a gorgeous harmony between human and nature. Surrounded by long grass, white sand, and deep blue skies, the models’ looks are transcendent and magnetic. In the words of owner and designer Mzukisi Mbanegrew, Imprint has “become a brand which adopted the use of print as a storytelling tool”, and Elena has fully embraced the brand ethos into her distinctive oeuvre. On how she created such striking, well-realised visions, Elena explained that ‘the team was strong, the location beautiful and the styling and makeup inspiring. When you have all the elements working so well together, shooting becomes easy and fun, and we shot the whole story in a couple of hours once on location.’ Credits for the project: Photographer: Elena Iv-skaya Styling: Chrisna Debruyn Makeup: Alice Coloriti

Pascale Weber

about
I am a 34-year old Swiss photographer based in Zurich. I studied photodesign at college of design in Bern and received my federal diploma in 2013. What I especially like about still life photography is the exact work in arranging, moving the props back and forth and therefore determining the perfect moment myself. Creating new ideas, new concepts and realizing them, represents the greatest joy in my work.

about the artwork
EDITION "CARAVAGGIO"   Edition „Caravaggio“ is an interpretation of the emotional life of the early Baroque painter Caravaggio and his dramatic use of chiaroscuro. The sacred and the profane, couture and workwear are combined in enthralling ways. Water repellend, light, but also strong, almost leathery cotton in white, blue, black, warm earth tones, as well as purple and dark grey corduroy provide an intense contrast. Likewise, exciting light and shadow effects take the viewer amidst a stage ensemble.

 

Making Pictures

about
Marcus Smith traces back much of his blistering creative talent to his childhood in Chicago. A keen athlete, he would go on to become one of the most in-demand sports photographers working today. His early love of colouring books shaped his confident use of light and distinctive color palette. And as a nine-year-old, he would hire his drawing skills out to his less-talented classmates, an early example of his hustle. Marcus studied Business Economics, and it was in college he first became interested in photography, shooting his musician friends. On graduating, he followed his creative instincts, albeit with a savvy sense of supply and demand from his studies. He describes himself as a chameleon, able to adapt his style to both an intimate one-on-one shoot and a full-scale ad production. He likes to over-prepare in advance, but on set he is reactive, finding the real and the stripped-back shot in even staged scenarios.Shooting local high school sports teams he developed a raw, authentic look which stood out from the comic-book superhero style that was then in fashion. He was ahead of the curve, and has gone on to shoot superstars like Serena Williams, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant’s end-of-an-era retirement campaign for Nike.

about the artwork
Marcus Smith's personal series ‘Colour Me Happy’. In his own words: ‘I do a ton of commercial work for brands that involve celebrities or professional athletes, and as much as I love it, sometimes simple ideas can quickly become complicated.  For that reason, I find it incredibly important to do a shoot or take on a project where there’s little to no input coming from elsewhere.  That’s simply what this shoot was, a simple expression of creative freedom and happiness. I’m very much drawn to the drama of movement and energy, so I was very specific about casting a model that felt comfortable moving and making odd/different shapes with her body.  I’m also very much aware of the story I’m telling through the use color whether it be the wardrobe or background colors and how they work together to convey a particular feeling.  I was in a really positive and happy mood during this shoot because I had the opportunity to create in such a free and unfiltered way.  I hope that emotion comes through when you view the images.'
