“Sometimes if you see something so completely unremarkable, it’s heartbreaking. I don’t know why. Sometimes if you see something so totally ridiculous and straightforward, it’s also heartbreaking. It gives you this weird feeling where your eyes swell up and you can’t decide whether to laugh or cry.” – Jason Fulford, 2005
Jason Fulford has been depicting “the simultaneous feeling of sad and funny” throughout his career. Born in Atlanta, GA, and now living in San Francisco, CA, Fulford has a BA from Pratt Institute in New York. His work has been exhibited in New York, Seattle, Copenhagen, Budapest, Atlanta and Kansas City, and has been published in The New York Times Magazine, Harper’s, Life, Newsweek, Suddeutche Zeitung, among many more.
His photographs have also graced the covers of books published by virtually every major publishing house – which is entirely fitting, as Fulford is co-founder of a book imprint himself (J&L Books, Inc., established 2001). A graphic designer and freelance commercial photographer as well as an artist, Fulford is the author of four books: The Mushroom Collector (2010), Raising Frogs for $ $ $ (2006), Crushed (2003), and Sunbird (2000).

Marco Breuer (b. Landshut, Germany) is well known for his radical approach to the photographic medium. Breuer employs nontraditional photographic techniques that do not rely on the use of a camera, aperture, or film, but instead utilize a combination of photogrammic, abrasive, and incisive techniques to make marks and capture images. His work is in numerous public collections at major institutions around the world and is widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. Currently residing in upstate New York, Breuer has lectured and taught extensively, and received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2006.
