Pieter Henket To commission him or to request prints of his work: Pieter Henket’s images, an encounter between his eyes and the eyes of his characters, form a (celebrity-worshipping) narrative, comprehensible and dead on hip. An autodidact, he already has worked with stars like Angelica Houston, Mary- Kate Olsen, Sir Ben Kingsley, Kristen Stewart, William Hurt and pop phenomenon Lady Gaga for who Henket captured the image of her debut album “The Fame”. In 2010, this iconic image was included in the American Woman exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. 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.

In recent years Henket has focused on portrait photography. These images seem to sum up the New Yorker culture of this decade. With his scenic stripped to a void and daring lightning design, Henket manages to make the faces in the images look casual and accidental, yet knows to represent the essence of the face and to get – with wit – under the skin of celebrity culture. Illuminating and frightening close, style maintained. Henket works and lives in New York City since 1998.

Subhadip Biswas To commission him or to request prints of his work: email Wandering on the streets has always been my favourite thing. I used to carry a film camera from a very tender age but that was mere clicking but from that time taking photographs has been a part of me. In the mean time I aspired to be a Film Maker but somehow I ended up being a Civil Engineer. I enjoy being that. With time a deeper look into the art of photography has been ventured by me, met some friends with the same taste especially Shayan Chaudhuri, Akash ghosh, Pratip and Kaushik Halder who has always been with me everytime and obviously Ankita Roy who has been my greatest critique ever. A DSLR Camera as gift from my father triggered my wish to take this art further and this continues along with wandering on the streets. I am Subhadip. I am from Kolkata, India. Instagram
