Self-taught nature photographer David Frutos dwells in Murcia, Southeast Spain, and captures the incredible essence of the Mediterranean coast like a mystical dream.
David lives less than 75 kilometers from one of the best places he’s ever been—the Camarillas Swamp in Albacete, Spain. Many of the photos for which he won prestigious international awards have come from this particular location that he has managed to turn into a beautiful, magical spot.

Why Not Now?
Hayden Korr is a surviving student activist attending that same high school in which tragedy struck. Although becoming a full time photojournalist is one of her greatest aspirations, she has already touched souls with the influence of her timeless black and white rally photographs.
On February 14th, 2018 one of the world’s most deadliest school shootings occurred in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen individuals were killed, and seventeen were wounded. This massacre sparked the March For Our Lives movement which in turn has created hundreds of rallies and marches across the country. Student-led efforts are dominating this political warfare in attempts to raise awareness of gun violence issues.
“I thought that this rally was one of the most emotional experiences I have ever witnessed, so I had to express that.” Two of Hayden Korr’s biggest fears are “not documenting the right things and not documenting enough.” This has propelled her deep into the work of a true artist with wholesome intentions and daunting challenges.

Finding & Keeping Purpose
Dauntlessly spirited Rosie Hardy is a surreal fine arts photographer in a small town near Glossop, England, where she has access to the wild, forest like territory the majority of her photos encompass. She is currently working on a 365-day challenge, but not for any reason you may immediately assume.
Her 365-day challenge began six weeks after the passing of her boyfriend, Tim, who was devastatingly taken too soon after a batting melanoma. “It was my first big grief, and it’s only looking back that I can understand the magnitude the loss held. A few weeks in, I was struggling to get out of bed, find direction or purpose, and having started a 365 when I first picked up a camera at 17, reattempting the project seemed a fitting way to make sure I didn’t let photography slip away from me, too.”
Rosie explains how this challenge helped convey more than she expected. “It gave me something to think about other than his death, it gave me a way to channel my emotional state into something productive, it gave me connection and support from the people who’d followed my work and journey, and for that, I am so grateful.”
Rosie believes that art should be a reflection of the artist. She feels encouraged to take bigger emotional risks because she is confident in her photography’s ability to help her recover from even the greatest loss. In the same respect, her work is also based on intent. Her photography has and will never be about being “gallery worthy” or aesthetically neat, it’s about feeling good during the creation process- especially during the 365 project.
Her creation process goes above and beyond the typical, as it’s layered in her own passions. Although Rosie describes poetry as something she “dabbles” in, the captions of her photos are almost always beautiful enough to be considered poetry. Her exceedingly candid and forthright captions regularly give her followers a bitter taste of reality, layered in sweet sorrow and thoughtful, compelling prose.
Rosie has refused to sit in the passenger’s seat of life and has instead decided to utilize the good in life to create, to listen to cinematic classical music, take her kayaks onto the nearby lake and daydream up ideas for shoots.
The sincerity in her online presence has earned her a whopping 137.6 thousand followers. Her ability to be frank with her thoughts came from the fact that being a virtual public figure, she was going to be scrutinized at every angle anyway, so she might as well be judged for being her authentic self. Furthermore, this honesty has taken her to new heights the more she has studied behavioral psychology. Being able to express fear, grief, or other like issues is integral in a healthy process of moving forward. For her, this ingenuous sharing of her personal life has become “cathartic, artistic and integral to the structure” of her life.
If she could give one piece of advice to her younger self, it would be to put less pressure on herself to create photos with the perfect outcome. “I’d have more patience with the learning process, and also maintain that it’s more important to be passionate about what it is you want to get out of your system by creating the piece, than the piece itself!”
The photo above was chosen by the band Maroon 5 to use as their album cover art. Being chosen was not only an incredible accomplishment, but quite the relief as projects like these are what eases one of Rosie’s biggest fears- becoming a photographer who she doesn’t recognise. Only a small portion of her income comes from her personal work featured on Flickr, instagram, portfolio & Facebook. The majority of her income is derived from weddings, musician shoots and workshops. Although large brands are constantly requesting her talent, she remains highly selective of whom she chooses to work with in fear of the possibility she’ll over monetize her passion and “forget the reason I create what I create.”
Rosie will be speaking at Hagley Camera Club on April 10 – the ticket and raffle proceeds will be donated to her late boyfriend’s charity, the Tim Bacon Foundation.
