Bree Apperley, Brooklyn
Bree Apperley is thinking that maybe she is a graphic artist. Very much interested in the brave new world of internet connections and the old world of make and do, she tries to forge unexpected creations that touch upon these both. Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, Bree holds a degree in both fine art and design.
Nicholas Gottlund, Baltimore
Nicholas Gottlund is an artist, photographer and book maker. He is the founder of Gottlund Verlag, a small publishing house which produces artist books with a focus on contemporary photography. His monograph ‘Wild Prayer’ was recently acquired by the Whitney Museum library. He currently lives and works in Kutztown, Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland.
Alexander Binder, Stuttgart
Alexander Binder was born on Halloween night 1976 in the Black Forest/Germany. He is a self-taught photographer and has a degree in economics. Both – his photo and his film projects – are characterized by a fascination for the mystic, the spiritual and the occult. Alexander grew up in a rural area shaped by the fairy tales of Wilhelm Hauff and the Brothers Grimm. This early contact with mythical creatures made him spent the whole puberty in the local video store, watching a surreal mélange of science-fiction- and horror-movies. His production process combines digital recording technology with self-built lenses and creates a blurred, diffuse and somewhat psychedelic look.
Rotating Gallery was created in February 2007 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The current exhibition space consists of one 12×9′ wall. Rotating Gallery is committed to showing ecclectic and contemporary works. The gallery is run by Alana Celii and Grant Willing.

Maryanne Casasanta, Toronto
Maryanne Casasanta’s work contemplates the exchange between art and commonplace. By offering a glimpse into the inner life of every day objects, her personal living environment is transformed through an ongoing process of recording and annotating space. Her work explores a dichotomous relationship between interior and exterior surroundings. Without intervening, she seeks to observe and archive the ephemeral found in natural environments. Maryanne lives and works in Toronto.
Jessica Eaton, Montreal

Vancouver. Her work has been exhibited across North America at galleries including Hunter and Cook HQ, the LES Gallery, Access Gallery, Jen Bekman, Blanket Gallery and Helen Pitt Gallery. In 2010 Jessica is slated for a solo exhibition at PUSH Gallery, Montreal and group exhibitions at Jen Bekman, NY, for the Hey Hot Shot Showcase, Affirmation Arts Foundation NY, for the Humble Arts Foundation 31 Women in Art Photography exhibit and 107 Shaw.

Steve Halo, New York
Steve Halo, known as just Halo (and not for the video game) for the most part. He enjoys taking pictures more or less for fun here and there, and his subject matter has no rhyme or reason to it. If you get a chance ask him about his “around the back” dribble in basketball or his “catch and shoot 3 pointer”, it’s priceless.
