CATLIN GUIDE: Virgilio Ferreira’s spiritual, soft-focus photography

Catlin Guide: Juno Calypso’s hyper-artificial La La Land photography
Juno Calypso specialises in elaborately glossy photographic set-ups – and has her tongue firmly planted in cheek. Her arch, unsettling photography landed her an appearance in the soon-to-be-launched Catlin Guide 2013, the definitive artistic British Who’s Who of graduate talent. Wonderland dive in.
Marc Lagrange: Sex, sepia and Polaroid photography
If Helmut Newton as the pioneer who introduced eroticism to photography, Marc Lagrange is one of his worthy heirs to the art. Heaving with lust and glamour, his sexually-charged large format photography might just overwhelm the fainthearted. Wonderland takes a deep NSFW breath and dives in.
You might not know Nabil Elderkin's name, but you'll definitely have seen his work as NABIL. The Australian photographer and filmmaker extraordinaire is behind some of the most iconic photos and music videos of the past decade, including Antony & The Johnson's Cut the World' and Frank Ocean's 'Pyramids'. Wonderland get into the mind of […]
EMERGING: Tom Beard
Tom Beard’s shot everyone from Florence Welch to Hercules & Love Affair, but his own personal photography’s a much more downbeat, street-wise affair: mice in their death throes, little paws clutching at air; boys on a council estate staring suspiciously at the outsider in their midst. Wonderland talks to Twickenham boy made good.
EMERGING: Kim Jakobsen To
Norwegian-turned-Londoner Kim Jakobsen To has shot for everyone from Acne to Canon (and Wonderland, of course), but it's his unpretentious, intimate and entirely lovely portraits that really caught our eye. We talk to him about Birdland, his exhibition at Rove Gallery.
EMERGING: Antonio Marguet

EMERGING: Josh Greet
We’ve all spent our share of time scrolling Tumblr’s infinite supply of animated gifs, but young photographer Josh Greet took things further and started making his own. And in between shooting gifs for Adidas Originals and Illustrated People, the Plymouth College of Art graduate isn’t short of work.

In an age of Instagram and smartphones, we’re swamped in a constant stream of pictures.

DENNIS MORRIS: This Is The One
Dennis Morris is the first man of British music photography – bar none. His iconic pictures of Bob Marley and Johnny Rotten have graced the walls of many a first-year uni student’s walls. This time, he’s back with a photo book of the Stone Roses, This Is The One. Wonderland talks to the maestro himself.
KRISTY LEIBOWITZ: journalism meets art
Photographer Kristy Leibowitz boldly trains her eye on artists and models, capturing their essence and character in ways that surprise, shock and charm. Wonderland talks to her about her tabloid and Daily Mail roots, and how a Busta Rhymes music video kickstarted her photography career.
EMERGING… Neringa Rekasiute
Russian doll princesses, nature goddesses with pet pheasants: Neringa Rekasiute takes pictures of magic, transforming her models into peculiar, ethereal fairy tales. Wonderland speaks to her about deadlines, visions, and how anyone can be a photographer – even a monkey.
