Born in France in 1963, Thomas Dhellemmes lives and works in Paris. Conceiving unique universes, realizing real, powerful, simple images, revealing the authenticity of a product or the uniqueness of a brand … Thomas founded his creative photographic studio in May 1998 based on these principles.
Since then, surrounded by collaborators in a varying geometry of creative directors, photographers, video makers, stylists and
retouchers, Atelier Mai 98 has taken on a multitude of projects while attempting to preserve a subtle balance between creativity,
technicity and serenity.

Wendy van Santen and
Wendy van Santen (1980) and Hans Bolleurs (1977) are a Rotterdam based artist couple.
Their playful work shows the everyday in ways you have never seen it before.
They use household objects, food, flowers and anything they can get their hands on to create objects, videos and photographic images. Their seductive use of light turns mundane everyday objects into iconic artifacts.
Their irreverent sense of humour and poppy use of color makes their creations seem playful and lighthearted but there’s a sinister undertone to their weird and wonderful world.
Their images have been featured in newspapers and magazines, campaigns for various brands and galleries.
