Invisible Paint Drip Man by Josh Caudwella

Josh Caudwell is a UK based commercial photographer with a passion for finding unusual angles on the world around us. He enjoys producing creative and powerful imagery. He has always had a strong interest in art and design which was heightened early in his development when he had a chance encounter with the image editing program, Photoshop. His fascination with the ability to manipulate images and design elements led him onto a degree in graphic design. However, after purchasing his first semi-professional camera midway through his studies, with the view that it would aid him in becoming a better designer, he found that he enjoyed photography more. He later honed his skills by assisting fashion and advertising photographers, Ram Shergill and Atton Conrad.

Republic X’s interview with photographer Sasha Kurmaz
interview by Arnoldas Lukas Vaitkunas (read full interview here)

Sasha Kurmaz is Ukrainian photographer (born in 1986, Kiev) who I discovered on flickr website. There he is quite popular and famous. I thought, well his works are usual but somehow catchy and interesting. It seems that portraits and lifestyle in his photographs are something different and inexperienced. Well… maybe not all of us will kiss a man in our entire lifetime but this is what Sasha expresses through his photography. Something as he say that makes you enjoy the life.In 2008 Sasha graduated Ukraine State Academy of Art (Design Department).

SK: If some people are calling my photos distracting - it is good.People love to talk. This is normal. They are only human. They are always right.

RX: What are you trying to express or say throughout your daily life’s photography? 
SK: I just want to focus on things that are interesting to me.

RX:Do you have any rules for your photography? 
SK:The basic rule - no rules.

RX:What is your motto?
SK:Enjoy your life!

RX:Who do you think most enjoys your photography: young or more adult and mature people? Why?
