5×5 features five photographs from five photographers selected by a guest editor.
Romke Hoogwaerts has done a lot of stuff for someone his age. Actively engaged in all sorts of stuff, Hoogwaerts is best known as the founder and editor of MOSSLESS Magazine. Started as a humble blog of small conversations with photographers, MOSSLESS has become an exciting presence in independent art photography publication.
For this week’s edition of 5×5, Hoogwaerts presented us with a selection of images gathered from his preparation for the upcoming third issue of MOSSLESS Magazine.
Mark Peckmezian is someone I always recommend. He’s a stellar portrait photographer and an artful printer. I’ve wanted to meet him for some time now, and when I finally get some money to spend I’m going straight to him. I’ve been saying that for years now!
These last few months we’ve been focusing on American landscape and social documentary photography, so I feel compelled to include a few of the people we’ve found. Curran’s one of them
Mustafah Abdulaziz is really globally aware. It’s rare to see such important, undercovered subjects hit so perfectly, and in such far-flung places, though perfect choices—one series comments on another.
At first I didn’t notice that this was England, it’s pretty obvious to me now but at the time I got really distracted by the beauty of these photos. There’s a lot of them, too. Leo Goddard attended the Hartford MFA Photography program, which I’m a huge fan of!
My last choice is Laurie Kang, she’s a conceptual photographer we’re making a book with. It’s being released at the next NY Art Book Fair, and we’re really excited about getting down to printing and binding it.
