Artist bios
Roei Greenberg is a London based artist who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2020. His photographic practice is concerned with landscape as a complex intersection between culture, geography and autobiography. He grew up on a Kibbutz in Israel, located on the Lebanese border. The concept of boundaries (political and social) and the relations between land, power, belonging and legitimacy are amongst the issues investigated in his work. Combining an objective aesthetic with strong emphasis on research and critical approach, he creates multi-layered photographic perspectives; pictorial and alluring yet seeking to disrupt traditional modes of landscape representation. “Greenberg has developed a very idiosyncratic visual language in his work. The landscapes are seductive and almost hypnotising, drawing the viewer under their spell. But the appearance is too good to be true, because one does not trust the conjured harmony and an irony breaks its way in, which reveals the complexity of these pictures."  (Andreas Gursky)

Emil Lombardo is an Argentinian photographer based in London, with projects extending to Paris and Buenos Aires. Starting as a self-taught photographer, Emil dedicated years to refining his skills before pursuing a Photography MA at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2021. Emil's work focuses on social issues that underscore the human condition. His photography seeks to illuminate the complexities and interconnections of society, from body politics and visibility to the intersections of identity, including gender, sexuality, immigration, race, and socio-economic status. More recently, Emil is setting his sights on photojournalism, eager to apply his eye for storytelling to current events and issues, hoping to engage a wider audience with his work.

She recently curated the exhibition Painting with Light at 79 Wardour Street and online with Vortic Curated (2023). The architectural form is central to her photography which Young approaches as an unreliable narrator who, akin to the cinematographer or novelist, is also omnipresent within the world she has created.
