Laura Braun is a freelance photographer and artist. She studied at Central St Martin’s and at Goldsmith’s college. The subject matter of her photography broadly speaking is the city and its dwellers. She is interested not in the spectacular but in the quiet oddities of the everyday, the beauty and drama of that which may be passed un-noticed. Here she will present the projects “Downtown” (L.A.) and “Lidos” and some work in progress from “Strangers” and “Dalston Polaroids”

Natalie has been working as a freelance photographer for the last seven years. She spoke about the various strands of her commercial work and possible directions for the future.
While Jochen's work is used in magazines and in advertising, he has recently also been doing a shoot on the TV program 'Make Me A Supermodel'. Publications include iD, The Face, The Guardian Weekend, GQ, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Happy and others. Besides being represented by Milc photographic, he also contributes his back catalogue and his personal images to Onimage, a London based picture library. The work we are seeing today is edited from his editorial portfolio. Jochen is aiming to get a similar portfolio presentation printed in the form of his own magazine and hopes to launch the publication with his first solo show in London.
