    here, and only now. We produce our blend of newly-shot original interviews, film footage, portraits of artists and talents. We focus most on singularity, significant individual works and exhibitions, provocative ideas, and biographical material. We believe an artist's work should intersect with today’s most relevant issues and concerns.
    We want to be there when it happens.
    And of course we want to be there first.

    WHERE

    and When. The earth we live in is full of visual treasures too magnificent to describe. Often we need a photograph to allow an beautiful landscape to meet our lines of vision - wherever we are.
    Sometimes it's a the other end of the world, sometimes just a few miles away.
