Paolo Woods blends photography with investigative journalism.

He has received various prizes including two World Press Photo Awards.
Marina Caneve is a photographer working within an interdisciplinary approach. In her work Caneve addresses the issues of vulnerability, the environmental, social and cultural, and the construction of knowledge through the visual arts. Projects of her are Are They Rocks or Clouds, in which she addresses the history of hydrogeological events in the Dolomite mountains, Bridges Are Beautiful, a project about freedom and movement, and The Shape of Water Vanishes in Water, a series of photographs set in a sandy, grassy Cavallino Treporti, in which she asks us to think about the future of these kinds of environments.
Jack Latham is a documentary photographer. His books include A Pink Flamingo, made along the route of the Oregon Trail in the USA at a time of national financial hardship and Sugar Paper Theories about the Reykjavik Confessions in Iceland - a case of memory distrust syndrome in which six people confessed to murders the did not commit. His latest project, Parliament of Owls, focuses on Bohemian Grove, a private gentlemen's club in Northern California and the dangers of not providing context to the public.
