Florian Braakman is a documentary photographer who's works exits of photographic series. Through a personal relationship with the subject he addresses universal, social and cultural themes. He uses photography as a way to make contact with people, to question the world and gain a grip on our fast paced everyday ‘reality’. He uses photographs as a string of images and likes to combine several series together in publications and installations. He is currently  working on the project 'Delfshaven's Finest' about his neighbourhood in Rotterdam. He graduated in 2013 from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague with the project 'She Comes in Colors' which became a book. He was born in 1988 in Velp, the Netherlands, currently lives in Rotterdam, and works world wide.

Verena Blok is a documentary photographer who focuses on narrative storytelling through personal histories. She uses her practice as a way of embodying the voice of an individual embedded in a cultural heritage. She is intrigued by the way social and cultural relations influence one’s life in a family and community, and form at times paradoxical, tragic and humorous situations. The encounter with her subject is the core and the fuel for her work. With her photography and moving image installations she attempts to shed light on inner life and everyday “reality”.

Olivier van Breugel received his Bachelors Degree in Photography at AKV | Sint Joost, Breda. During his studies he went on a six month erasmus exchange at the Kunsthøgskolen in Bergen (KHiB), Norway. During this exchange, and the internship at street photographer Nick Turpin that followed, Olivier developed his interest for the everyday he found on the streets of Bergen and London. Recently, he has focussed his camera on the small and easily overlooked details of Amsterdam.
