Bill DIODATO - Photographer

Renowned Photographer Releases First Book
Bill Diodato’s “Care of Ward 81” remembers long forgotten women who occupied The Oregon State Mental Asylum’s Ward 81 Award Winning photographer Bill Diodato announces today the release of the “C/O Ward 81”, the first of two monographs on “the demise of institutional services.”
Located in Salem - The Oregon State Insane Asylum - as it was then known and which was also the location for the movie “One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest”, had a ward set up at the end of the 19th Century to help women with psychiatric needs and provide them with isolation – Ward 81.
During 2005, the entire site was being redeveloped and so the Oregon State Legislature authorized Bill Diodato to photograph and thus document the cremated remains of some 3500 deceased patients of the “Asylum” which, in one final act of inhumanity had been cremated buried and exhumed.
During this very moving project - Warden Marvin Fickle also granted Bill access to the infamous closed-off Ward 81. Knowing that he would be the last person to document the ward, Bill felt a sense of responsibility to remember the women who inhabited this extraordinary place.
The result is “Care of Ward 81”. Some people swear that if you look at these images from the right angle or in the right light you can actually SEE the figures of the women who once lived in this remarkable place.
Bill Diodato has taken it upon himself to remember the women of ward 81 for all time, via this unique book.

STRAULINO "Magnetized" Exhibition

Anne COMBAZ - Photographer

"First time making pictures backstage during the Paris Men's wear. It's a bit harder for me, as there are much less photographers. I'm used to hide in the crowd, now I have to hide behind walls and mirrors to try to capture those instants I am looking for a dreamy look, a tired face, a glimpse of soul behind the beauty. I found myself blushing at times, I am not very comfortable. After all those seasons backstage I feel like a beginner, and the feeling is cool. Guys are really quiet, it's a surprise,and they read books too, just like girls. Skinny and young, like girls. They remind me of fawns. But the difference is there: the atmosphere is lighter, no seriousness about it. I'll shoot more boys."

Paula PARRISH - Photographer

NY based photographer Paula Parrish evokes a new dimension in her body of work — between her experimental techniques of printed, mounted then reshot or projected imagery and subject matter, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality in a complex system of layers and textures…video-art meets Cindy Sherman aesthetic!
Paula first pursued a career in documentary filmmaking. She directed and produced four films which were shot in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Tokyo and won awards at several film festivals including the NY Film and Video Festival, Slamdance, The Chicago Film Festival, The Dallas Video Festival, and Hollywood Film Festival Short Division. On Paula’s 4th film project she was documenting women working in the sex industry in Tokyo and decided to start photographing her subjects. Captivated by the powerful static nature and emotion of the still image, Paula finished the film and went back to the US to change her life for photography. Never letting go of her love for video, she has found a way to incorporate her filmmaking with still photography by working with video cameras, and still cameras combined.
Paula began her professional career in commercial photography in 2004. While thriving in the commercial and fashion worlds, the work easily transcends in the fine art realm. Paula continuously passionately exhibits her personal work in NY, Miami and Paris with amazing response.

Lisa HASSELGREN - Photographer

Lisa Hasselgren was born and raised in the north of Sweden in 1979. She started creating images and paintings in aquarell and oil, evolving into studying traditional black and white photography and later fashion photography. After landing the position as first assistant and retoucher for fashion photographer Carl Bengtsson in Stockholm, Sweden, she has now been freelancing as a photographer for two years with the base in Stockholm, working for magazines and designers, both swedish and international clients, such as Vouge, Sofifi, Rita Saardi, Lindex, The Shirt Factory, Beyond Retro, People, Judits, Nöjesguiden, City, Metro, Milo of Sweden and Hea7en.
Her work mainly derives from the Northern solicitude, the stillness and the unfulfilled aspiration for something inexplicable. Inspired by the past, ancient stories, images and especially old paintings, portraits, mixed with the inspiration of the present, relations, films, music and musicvideos, her dreamy and old-fashioned poetic images more often resembles paintings rather than photographs. Though the essence of the images are predetermined and carefully planned before shooting, the main part of the images’ magic and special touch are made in the after effects of the retouch.
