Young Masters Alumni: Elisabeth Caren

Her work has been featured in People Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Elle Magazine, More Magazine, Fault, and InStyle. Her portrait work has been featured on international magazine covers and photographed dozens of celebrities including Serena Williams, Frank Gehry, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Bell, Pete Wentz, Tommy Hilfiger and Lena Dunham.

Young Masters Alumni: Fabiano Parisi
Fabiano Parisi is a photographer of contemporary ruins, industrial buildings, swimming pools, factories, mental asylums, villas and theatres. Travelling across the world to America and throughout Europe, he captures these beautiful, yet enigmatic, places that most of us will never see. What is so striking about Parisi’s work is his use of light, his relationship not just to history but to the theme of the ruin in Art History, and the composition and surface of his work. Fabiano Parisi was born in Rome, where he lives and works. Following a degree in psychology, he chose to make photography his career. Parisi participated in the 54th Venice Biennale, Italian Pavilion and in Fotografia Festival Internazionale di Roma in 2012 at the Macro Museum. In 2012 and 2014 he was shortlisted for the Young Masters Art Prize in London, and at the Arte Laguna Prize 2012 in Venice he won a special prize. In 2010 he was the winner of the Celeste Prize International for photography in New York. He has had several solo shows, some of the most recent of which were held at the UBS bank in Lugano in 2014, Diana Lowenstein gallery in Miami in 2013, at the Glauco Cavaciuti gallery in Milan in 2013 and 2011, at the FotoLeggendo photography festival in Rome in 2011, at the Museo di Roma in Trastevere in 2010 and at the Fabbrica Borroni in Milan in 2009. In 2015, Parisi was nominated for the prestigious PULSE Prize, New York.
