Born in St. Petersburg (Leningrad). Igor Posner moved to California in the early 90s. He studied molecular and cell biology at the University of California Los Angeles, where he first started to take pictures and experiment in the darkroom.
Initial infatuation with picture taking led Igor to explore the silent and haunting experience of walking after dark on the streets of Los Angeles and Tijuana. Collision of social and typical with personal and psychological, this first series of images “Nonesuch Records” savors the strange solitude of the enigmatic region between California and Mexico; amid the streets, bars, night shelter hotels, and disappearing night figures.
After 14 years, Igor returned to St. Petersburg in 2006, taking up photography full time, which led to a book project “Second Thoughts” that seeks to capture city’s psyche.
At present, Igor is based in New York and working on a long term project exploring migration and gradual disappearance of neighborhoods based on Russian immigrant community in North America. Igor’s work was shown in North America, Europe, Russia, and South East Asia.
He joined Prospekt agency in 2011.

Adam Cohen is a New York City born filmmaker and photographer based in Berlin. Working in a territory somewhere between film, painting and photography; his films focus on cities, memory and forgetting, history and entropy.
Gael Bonnefon's pictures trace a kind of personal documentary, traversing subconscious situations, distressed characters, creating a fiction attached to his everyday life. About Decline describes a twilight world, but night will never come. It's not about agony, but more about an eternally declining light. His play on chiaroscuro and flash-photography, his milky skies and heavily saturated colors confer upon this work a tragic strangeness, abandonment and even destruction.
