Victor Quintana – Havanna, Cuba
A few months ago, strolling through my hometown, I noticed how the midday light was reflected on the facade of an old house through the windows of the opposite building. That image was inspiring and suggestive enough to make me take a picture of that moment. Weeks later, the old building was demolished to build a new, more modern one. That image that I took would not happen again again.
Although I have been taking photographs for years, I had never asked myself why. That futile event made me fully aware that instants are that, instants. That the lights and shadows are never the same, that they do not always manage to transform the scene on which they fall in such a way that they make it unique and remarkable.
I take photographs to preserve those moments. So that they do not get lost among vulgar lights and shadows. And always trying that the photographs that are born of that moment are impregnated of my being and of my feelings, to be able to transfer the spectator to the exact moment in which the shutter of my camera came into operation. The search for that moment is the maximum that I want to apply to each and every one of my projects

Marcelo Prieto – Mexico City, Mexico
I took this picture in México City, for me, it is a mistery why there is that white trail, I was first drawn towards the bright colors and lines, which appeared to me as kind of an abstract painting created by the passing of time.

Thilo Rohländer – Biarritz, France
When taking pictures, I am always interested in establishing a sense of calm and surrealism. This time in Biarritz was a dramatic sunset above the ocean just behind me but when I walked across the parking lot I notice a car, which was parked just slightly off a strange yellow spot on the pavement. From that moment on I knew I had to take a picture of this scene instead.

Glenn Mendiola – Manila, Phillipines
As a graphic designer by profession, I create designs that meet at the intersection of visual appeal, functionality and usability. When I’m not playing with bright colors at work, I love doing photography on the side, black and white especially. I like how it magnifies seemingly mundane elements we never would’ve noticed if it were splashed with colors, how in the absence of color, we are forced to see things differently. I shot this image in Pasig City, in Manila, Philippines.
