View set on Kuvva.com Pieter Henket is a Dutch photographer living and working in New York City. His images, an encounter between his eyes and the eyes of his characters, form a narrative, comprehensible and dead-on hip. An autodidact, Henket, today merely 33 years old, already has worked with stars like Angelica Houston, Marry Kate Olson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Rapper Nelly and pop phenomenon Lady Gaga for who Henket captured the image of her debut album “The Fame”. This iconic image was recently included in the American Woman exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He mixes fashion with pop and pop with art. That’s exactly what Pieter Henket distinguishes from the rest. Fascinated with capturing the image as if it were a still, with all its cinematographic characteristics and thus hard to copy, Henket evokes electric vibes. These images are on the rocky edge but remain mysteriously narrative. Illuminating and frightening close, style maintained. Pieter Henket’s primary gallery is situated in Utrecht and goes by the name of, Flatland gallery.

View set on Kuvva.comGijs Kast’s portraits are stripped from any form of aesthetic. The images offer a direct and confronting reflection that underlines the humanity of the portraited. Kast shows what normally is hidden and uses his humor to make the painful experience of this exposure bearable. Kast reveals the venom within you and offers you the pleasure of a sarcastic peep. It is therefore not hard to tune in to his work.

View set on Kuvva.comJakub Polomski was born in 1985 in Cieszyn (Poland). Photography started to interest him in his 20’s. Inspired by photos he saw in an issue of National Geographic, he borrowed DSLR from a friend and began to work. At the end of 2010 he was awarded first prize in a photo competition organized by the Kinder brand. The prize was short but full of experiences, as a trip to Argentina (Patagonia and Buenos Aires). From that moment his dream, though still far distance, became a couple of years travelling around the world. His adventure with photography started by capturing landscapes. However he did not want to be limited in one area of photography, that is why he also tried photojournalism, street and sport photography. Since 2007 Jakub has been awarded with many prizes and commendations in various photography contests. However by far the most important for him has been National Geographic Poland statuette gained for the first place in category “Polish Landscape” in 2010. His works can be viewed on he Polish site digart.pl and international 1x.com and Behance.net.

View set on Kuvva.comPyhai enjoys drawing animals, portraits and night skies. Her drawings in soft colors are mysterious, yet comforting at the same time. The animals and people that inhabit these scenes appear to be in a quiet state of longing and acceptance, and evoke a certain kind of inner calm. These seven drawings are selected from her wordless book De Brief, telling the story of a letterís journey through the world, as a metaphor on hope, and how colours return in your life after a difficult period. The original book consists of 20 drawings of 42 x 15 cm.
