ALEJANDRO CARTAGENA, 33, MONTERREY
How did you develop your series Between Borders and if you were to remember one anecdote that happened to you while shooting the series, what would it be? It came about from a commission I was assigned to do last year on some particular communities around the US/Mexico border. When thinking on what to do or how to approach the people from these communities it seemed to me appropriate to be as...

What brought you to photography? How much of your time do you devote to photography on a daily basis? I started taking pictures with a friend’s camera towards the end of high school to help out with our yearbook, which was a lot of fun so I decided to buy my own camera soon after starting college. I became involved with pretty much every photography-related organization on campus...

ADAM GOLFER, 25, NEW YORK
You graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2007. How did you evolve from a Fine Arts student to a working artist, and what advice would you give to recent graduates?

Making films can often take a long time especially if you are doing more...

Can you explain the process you went through for the Half-Damp Eyes series? From the photographs, it looks like your subjects were friends, relatives maybe. What was the collaboration like, and how did you explain what you were looking for to your subjects? Yeah, the subjects are friends of mine, some much closer than others. For the most part, I didn’t discuss my concept with them, though I’m...
DANIEL AUGSCHOELL, 25, BERLIN
Where are you from? Where did you live until you moved to Berlin? I’m originally from a small town located in the Italian part of the Alps, on the border with Austria. Before I moved to Berlin I have lived in Venice for about four years. Several of your series were shot around the border between Austria and Italy, a region rarely seen in photographs. What attracted you there? Most of my...
