Radcliffe Roye is a Brooklyn based documentary photographer specializing in editorial and environmental portraits and photo-journalism photography. A photographer with over twelve years of experience, Radcliffe is inspired by the raw and gritty lives of grass-roots people, especially those of his homeland of Jamaica. Radcliffe strives to tell the stories of their victories and ills by bringing their voices to matte fibre paper. Recently, Radcliffe began experimenting with interpretative photography, preferring to allow the abstract content within the frame to dictate the voice and purpose of the image. His Elements series focuses on the bold, austere, graphic and emotionally raw imagery, that is trapped behind a diffused lens. With painterly abilities, Radcliffe uses this diffused methodology to subtly awake the subconscious and expose the isolated figure or vision painted within a rhetorical frame.
Gus Powell was born in New York City in 1974 and attended Oberlin College where he majored in comparative religion. In 2003 he was selected to be in PDNs 30 under 30 issue and also published his first monograph, The Company of Strangers (J&L Books). His work has been exhibited internationally, including a solo show at The Museum of The City of New York and group exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts Houston and FOAM, NL. His photographs have been published in Aperture, Harpers, Vogue, M le mag – Le Monde, Wired, Fortune and W, and he has been a regular contributor to The New Yorker magazine for a decade. He is a member of the street photographers’ collective In-Public and is faculty in the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department at the School of Visual Arts, NY. His work is included in the books Bystander: A World History of Street Photography and Street Photography Now. Powell’s second monograph, The Lonely Ones (J&L Books 2015), was inspired by the work of William Steig and is a return to his earlier practice of using image and text together.
Joseph Michael Lopez was born in New York City in 1973 to a mother who escaped the Cuban revolution in 1967. He began his career as an analog cinematographer on the critically acclaimed Bruce Weber film, Chop Suey (2001), and was an autodidact until 2009, when he approached Columbia University without an undergraduate degree and was accepted as a MFA candidate based on the merit of his documentary portfolio. He completed his MFA in 2011. Currently, Joseph divides his time between long-form projects, teaching, and commercial work. His photographs have appeared on the cover of M, The Magazine for Leica M Photography, The Sunday Review of The New York Times, New York magazine and The New Yorker, among others. Joseph’s photographs of Cuba work were recently on exhibit in Cuban Photography after 1980: Selections from the Museum’s Collection, at The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. In 2016, a commissioned series of his photographs of New York neighborhoods, titled New York at Its Core: Future City Lab, was permanently installed at The Museum of the City of New York. Images from Dear New Yorker, the series from which this commission originated, have also been published in Bystander: A History of Street Photography, by Colin Westerbeck and Joel Meyerowitz, and 100 Great Street Photographs, by David Gibson.
