Sarah Butler shoots with a 5X7 view camera. She writes, “it's great as it slows me down. I love every step of the process, seeing that thing that for some reason grabs you. Shooting, unloading the film, waiting for it to be developed getting the surprise, the negatives and contact sheets, in the mail. Then in time maybe months, maybe years, something new comes to life.” Martin Holmes is a self taught photographer. After serving 4 years in the Army as a Paratrooper in the 82d Airborne, he rekindled his work with the camera in 2010. He works digitally now and he is actively creating his art-based portfolios around people and urban settings in downtown Houston.
