I met London-based photographer Jo Metson Scott (jometsonscott) in Texas earlier this year when she was traveling through the United States, taking photographs and interviewing soldiers for her latest project The Grey Line which is a “reflection on war, from the perspectives of US and UK soldiers who have spoken out against the invasion of Iraq” and the varying consequences. Solemnly beautiful imagery is matched with text to connect viewers and readers with a truly human experience.

Mateusz Kamiński is a young photographer whose Tumblr images compelled and intrigued me. They are stark and beautiful photographs depicting the monolithic remains from the Soviet occupation of his native Poland. I took the opportunity to conduct a long distance interview with this post Eastern Bloc artist.
There is a surreal quality to the images Fernando Flores creates, whether they are pure documentary or staged portraits. I sense that Fernando Flores approaches the world the way Hemingway approached words. He looks at the world as if he were looking at it for the first time with every photograph. His images read like Nabokov’s poetic prose. Every light, shadow, color, and form flow together within his frames. The following words are taken from a conversation over coffee about photography, kissing beautiful women, bad posture, and about one of his heroes getting stabbed in the throat.
The story about NJ Wight encounter with wildlife photography has the taste of a fairy tale to me; it’s the kind of adventure I’ve always dreamt about since I was a child. So I was really excited when she decided to answer some of my questions.
I met Francesco for the first time when we were in high school. Since then I’ve seen him pursuing his passion for photography with commitment, determination and hard work. In his photographs there’s something that compels the eye to dwell on the image a little longer; an untold story, a whispered secret, an undisclosed treasure. This is what I feel when I look at his work. So I am really honored that he found the time to answer my questions.
I got to know Ken Kornacki’s photography through Tumblr and I got more and more intrigued by his work. So, when I got the opportunity to do interviews for the Lensblr network, I decided to seize the moment and get more insight on this talentedphotographer’s work. Luckily Ken kindly accepted to answer my questions.

I’m happy to introduce Jennifer L. Young (some of you may know her as Jen and a camera). I really like her photography; the attention for detail, her eye in portraying fleeting instants, small but poignant moments of everyday life. I decided to put her photography under the magnifying glass and she kindly accepted.
I had the pleasure to interview Sam Cornwall. Sam is a photographer, snowboarder and also the creator of photoeveryone. He was so kind to answer some questions about his experience as photographer and curator and to give me a sneak peek on his future project.
