Glencoe Valley is considered the gateway to the Highlands and is not only one of most beautiful places in Scotland, it is also one of the most tragic. In the history of Scotland, the name Glencoe is inevitably associated with the massacre in 1692, when one clan betrayed the other and abused the right to hospitality which is to this day considered sacred in Scotland... Approaching Glencoe from the South, one crosses a high plateau until finally the A82 ascends the rugged mountains on both sides... This is where SIMON STOCK took the wonderful photo 'Glencoe Aerial', which just received an award at the PDN Photo Annual.

From a certain distance, things tend to look the quite different. This is true also for the breathtaking drone images of landscapes, oceans, streets, and desserts, which GALLERY STOCK now all has in their portfolio. Airborne for it were the two photographers BRIAN DOBEN and IRENAEUS HEROK.
“I find this kind of heightened perspective very interesting. It gives you a feeling for the relations and scales between objects or people in the places I photograph. Each place has its very own moods. I like the ocean because the light changes more drastically and more frequently, and the dessert with its intrinsic pacifying disposition,” Irenaeus Herok tells Travelbook in an interview on his drone images.
Irenaeus lives and works in Sydney, Australia. With a background in design and fine arts, he specializes in landscape and portraiture photography, drawing his inspiration from old master paintings and cinema. His work contains both traditional and contemporary aspects, balancing technical precision with his own unique style.
Brian Doben’s ongoing “At Work” series documents everyone from tattoo artists and Sumo wrestlers to chemists and prosthetic limb designers wherever they are. His process has taken him all over the world from L.A., Tokyo and Mumbai, to Cuba, Israel, Australia and the entire US. ‘At Work’ is a study of our world and how the people in it follow their unique callings. Brian released several dozen of his “At Work” portraits in a book of the same name while simultaneously presenting them at the photography festival Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2013. Since then, he has released a steady stream of portraits over the years.
Brian has received awards from the Society of Publication Designers, American Photography and the Photo District News for his work. He was one of PDN's 30 Under 30, Kodak's Photographer of the Year, and the inaugural photographer on PDN and Kodak's “Emerging Artists Series” website. His work is also part of the Museum of the City of New York's permanent collection.
