In his new work entitled 'Colombia Salsa', Christaan FELBER c/o GIANT ARTISTS documents salsa dancers in Cali, the third largest city in Colombia. Cali is considered the world capital of salsa. It seems like there are salsa clubs everywhere you look, and the dancers here are the fastest in the world. The captivating photos were published in VICTORY JOURNAL.
"In the southwest of Colombia, there is a city where salsa dancing exists in a form that is unique in its boldness and energy, yet pure in its tradition and style. Cali, known as the world’s salsa dancing capital, owns this iconic dancing style. The city is home to the largest number of professional salsa dancers in the world. In Cali, salsa dancing is a lifestyle and a way to make a living. As a form of art that is unique in its kind, combining high-performance athletics and the grace and beauty of a dance that is consumed widely and fervently around the city." – Jen Agudelo Luque.

Emily Shur has a comic’s sense of humor, a conceptualist’s talent for the unexpected, and a fashionista’s inclination for beauty. She is known for portraits that beckon viewers with a sly wink while always showing her subjects in their best light, whether it’s a celebrity, superstar athlete, everyday newsmaker, or cast talent. Having got her start as a documentary shooter, Emily is equally drawn to found moments that become compelling when framed by her camera...

Art Streiber is a master portrait photographer whose work celebrates the best of his subjects, whether they’re an A-list entertainer, athlete, businessperson, or cultural figure.

'We are excited to announce that Jonpaul Douglass has officially joined the Giant Artists roster! If you’re drawn to images that look like anyone could have shot them, then Jonpaul Douglass is not for you. This color-obsessed photographer, director, and creative director brings a head-turning approach to all of his work, whether he’s shooting for clients like Facebook, Apple, the NBA or Skittles or masterminding one of his viral photo projects, like 2014’s “Pizza in the Wild.”
Grounding all of Jonpaul’s work is a crisp sophistication. He strips his compositions down to the essential elements and in doing so elevates everything that remains in the frame. “A photo needs to have a special quality that’s almost magical and makes you wonder,” he says. Spoken like a true creative director, which in fact Jonpaul is. Among his notable collaborations: He worked with Postmates to develop a distinct look and feel that set the food-delivery service apart from its competitors, particularly on social media.
Jonpaul himself maintains an impressive presence on social media, with more than 98,000 Instagram followers, placing him firmly within influencer range. Viewers come for the color, the wit... and the pizzas, of course.'
