Axel Hütte is a German contemporary landscape photographer. Hütte is part of a generation of German photographers that includes Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Andreas Gursky, who have been influential in the creation of this unique photographic aesthetic. His photographs follow a strict objective approach devoid of narrative and yet evoke emotive qualities with poetic sensibility.

Whimsical, sculptural, emotive and eerie are some words to describe the work of Finnish photographer Riitta Päiväläinen who is fascinated by the presence of unwritten history, particularly that which shrouds second hand clothes. Päiväläinen combines my love for cold landscapes and installations made of cloth.
