After studying photography at college in Southern California, Dan Winters finished his formal education at the film school of Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany. He began his career in photography as a photojournalist for a newspaper in Ventura County, California. After winning several regional awards for his work, he moved to New York City, where magazine assignments came rapidly. He is widely recognized for his celebrity portraiture, scientific and aerospace photography, photojournalism, and illustrations.
Andy Saunders is a British author, science writer, and one of the world’s foremost experts on NASA digital restoration. His photographic work has been exhibited internationally at some of the most renowned venues, and regularly makes headlines in the world press – including BBC News, CBS News, New York Times, Daily Telegraph, USA Today, Fox News, and Washington Post, among others. His remastered images have also been utilised by NASA and reside in their own archives.
John Angerson (b.1969 Bristol, England) started his career in the early 1990s, covering the fall of the Berlin Wall and the changing geopolitical landscape of Eastern Europe. Since then, his work has continued to explore the different languages of documentary photography, focusing on how specific communities form, shift and develop.
His projects have garnered critical acclaim and have been exhibited at major art institutions in the UK and overseas. His monograph – Love, Power, Sacrifice (published by Dewi Lewis, Manchester) documented the Jesus Army over twenty years and peers into a microcosm of a fanatical religion.
