Touted as a “photographic child prodigy”, Indira Cesarine’s first solo exhibition was at the age of 16 at the Paul Mellon Arts Center. By the time she graduated high school she had exhibited 4 one-woman shows of her photographic work. While finishing a triple major in Art History, French Literature and Women’s Studies at Columbia University, she began shooting for a variety of top modeling agencies including Elite, Ford and Wilhelmina Models. Once she finished her degree, she went to London to pursue her interests in photography and journalism. Within 6 months of arriving in London, she was appointed Editor at Large of the British magazine “Don’t Tell It”, and began shooting editorials for many magazines and clients in England, the US and Europe.

In 2009 she produced and launched the multimedia publication XXXX MAGAZINE, showcasing original multimedia productions of fashion and video art films.

Anders Bramsen, born 1974, is a Danish video artist and film editor.
Since 1996, Bramsen has created a number of experimental films, art house documentaries, dramatic shorts and video installations. His pictures have been shown on national Danish TV (DR2) and at New York City film festivals and art venues, including the Brooklyn International Film Festival (Brooklyn Museum of Art), Anthology Film Archives, Galapagos Art Space, DUMBO Arts Center and Scandinavia House, (Victor Borge Hall). His movies have also screened in California, Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, as well as in Europe and Asia.
Bramsen's work emerges from situations where personal isolation and inner life rule. His films are based on observations of life's conflicts, tenderness, pain, and absurdities. They feature characters facing existential crises; these are often altered into dreamlike scenarios and presented in an unconventional manner. His video art appear more lighthearted, blissful and coloristic.
He’s also involved in editing documentaries and dramatic films. His talent in film and video editing springs from his conceptual approach to filmmaking as whole and that’s what makes him the editor he is. His rhythm and style is always forward looking and innovative. Some clients include Pacific Street Films, Daedalus Productions, Zentropa Productions and Electric Parc.
Bramsen divides his time between Los Angeles and Denmark.
Carol Brown graduated from, St Martins (4 year BA HONS Fashion) knowing she wanted to work in an area of fashion using her studies in history of art, museum research and fashion illustration.
After being asked to work as a make up artist on several test shoots, she realised how she wanted to channel her ambitions. She was taken on by an agency in the early 80’s and soon progressed to work with stylists Debbie Mason and Lucinda Chambers. This resulted in a Harpers cover closely followed by Vogue where she had the privelige of working with Grace Coddington and Liz Tiberis. At the height of the ‘super model’ era Carol became the make up artist for the George Michael Freedom video.
80’s London was exciting and creative but without the modern convenience of photoshop. Carol learned her craft well and has always taken pride in flattering and enhancing skin, creating a demand for personal appearances, press junkets, photographic editorial, advertising, film and commercials.
Based in London, Carol has worked in New York, Paris and Milan and has travelled the world extensively for location work.
