From the start of baseball’s World Series and Hurricane Sandy in the Caribbean to the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and people dressed as pandas, TIME presents the best images of the week.
Andrew Jackson was born in Dudley in the West Midlands. He completed an MA in Documentary Photography at Newport (University of Wales) and has since embarked on both commissioned and personal works. These works have sought to examine our emotional responses both to the spaces that surround us but also to the emotional spaces that exist between ourselves and others. He has a specific interest in exploring notions of identity and representation and is currently examining, within From a Small Island, the legacy of post-war migration from the Caribbean to Britain. His work is held in both private and public collections and he was recently nominated for the Prix Pictet photography Prize
Adrian Samson spent 4 years on the Caribbean, in the U.S. and a year in Canada before making the U.K. his home in 2004. Born in 1974 in Slovakia to Hungarian parents, he was introduced to photography by his father when he was only 8. His diverse body of work is infused with an instinctive use of light, which has an often apparent cinematic feel and reveals his fascination for film. Preferring to make the most out of the possibilities offered by his camera before processing the images, he often uses the reality of an urban scenario or a modified studio to render his vision. This vision has brought him not only gold and other merits in creative competitions, but also trust in his creative expertise from names such as Motorola, Ford, Microsoft, Sky, Piagio and agencies including BBDO, Ogilvy, TBWA and Lowe. He is currently based in London and is represented worldwide.
