Photographer Sylvain Schneider is a man who discerns, lives and captures.
In this he is an Artist¡
Refined, he respects time, considers, looks and finally acts ...
He doesn't offer any compromise,
His photographs are often determining, genuinely felt, never banal.
Finally, it expresses itself in delicate poetry; and there our body and our mind are together to “go through” his work.

... Direct, uncompromising, voluntary, expressive, .. Such seems to be Maria Martin!
She knows how to understand and combine mind, body ¡
Her photographs determine a few words that engage without refusing an aestheticism that leads our gaze even more
Urban, lively, woman, she expresses herself and imposes these cultures and freedom!
Spanish, Maria Martin! claims her experiences not as a few paradigms but rather for a few experiences that lead to a few lives.
Often, to live in a place, a city, is to forget it as one lives there! I made this observation by talking here and there.
Alicante in Spain, where I realize exclusively my photographs, is, often, a noisy city!
Multiple cultures "crash", resonate and live together. It is a place of extraordinary emotions.
Give to feel, Give to discover, Give to see these sensations suggested, here or there, by the street, the places, the things, the landscapes and, the people who surprise, astonish and live, are for me essential requirements.
I like to suggest these multiple, ordinary or extraordinary lives, the real or supposed freedoms of those places and lives that intersect.
By "disguising" the reality of my photographs, suggesting an "essential detail" here or there,proposing an expression "original"; I suggest some other universes or interpretations!
These are the realities of our respective memories that must prevail.
I only wish to propose!
"...My photographs are an urban sub-scenography, a scenic indication completing the flow without pertaining to it...
... In them appear simple signs of life, skimming the surface of an urban façade, detailing the silhouette of nameless internal lives... A real public hide-and-seek of abstract and innocuous details emphasized through a different, singular and creative gaze...
...Each detail present acts as a collection of anonymous and fleeting signatures... "
« ...I feel like "poet", I have been a photographer for several decades.
Today, new writing, new approach, true freedom of movement, I move in the worlds that are changing ....
I write stories with my smartphone! I capture "things" with another sensitivity …
I used « sténopé », polaroid, I practiced the argentic, I use today my digital SLR camera and my smartphone!
I do not feel any limit in my expression, only that of vulgarity or hatred …
I sometimes say that the photographic report is like a dance .... you have to learn the movement … »
