fototazo has asked a group of 50 curators, gallery owners, blog writers, photographers, academics and others actively engaged in photography to pick two photographers that deserve (more) recognition - the underknown, the under-respected as well as not-appreciated-enough favorites. A little more information on the project is available in the first post in the series here.
Today we continue the series with responses from Heidi Romano.
We began the series with responses from Nicholas Nixon, Matt Johnston, Blake Andrews, John Edwin Mason, Aline Smithson, Colin Pantall, Michael Werner, Liza Fetissova, Laurence Salzmann, Bryan Formhals, Richard Mosse, Shane Lavalette, Amy Stein, Amani Willett, Wayne Ford, S. Billie Mandle, Leslie K. Brown, Gordon Stettinius, Marc Feustel, Hin Chua, Adriana Rios Monsalve, Daniel Augschoell, Larissa Leclair, Elinor Carucci, Pieter Wisse, Daniel Echevarría, Natalie Minik, Qiana Mestrich, Jason Landry, Rona Chang, Stella Kramer, Joanne Lukitsh, Yumi Goto and Gwen Lafage.

Respondent: Heidi Romano is a fine art photographer and founder of UNLESS YOU WILL - a bimonthly international photography journal that showcases a vision within photo-based art. Her own work challenges the perceptions and expectations we have of our surroundings. Presented in an abstract and minimalist style, her photographs play with ambiguity, while conveying a sense of stillness and isolation.
Selections: Lauren Henkin and Awoiska van der Molen

I adore landscapes and was immediately drawn to the work by Lauren Henkin. Her work is examining the structure, loneliness and beauty of her eternal landscapes. Her vantage point allows us to glimpse a charming new view, a shimmering terrain from afar - I never seem to tire of.
She is currently showing her work at the Newspace Centre of Photography
Awoiska van der Molen
I came across Awoiska van der Molen's work through a collaboration with Fabio Severo for UYW. I discovered that Awoiska van der Molen prefers to work mostly at night, when the senses are not distracted by daily influences. Her remote locations add a mysterious blend of truth and fiction that move me.
