500 Photographers is a great source for great photography.
Pieter Wisse introduces 5 times a week a new photographer over 100 weeks.
When the 100 weeks are over you will find a very good database of 500 photographers of today.
Fantastic idea and wonderful resource for everyone interested in contemporary photography.

Lajos Geenen is a Dutch photographer from Amsterdam. 6 years ago he moved to America and is currently living and working in New York.
His very impressive work is without a doubt influenced by the old Dutch Masters, like Vermeer and Rembrandt. He masters composition and light in such a wonderful manner, classic and timeless and combines this beautiful style with contemporary subjects in his different series.
Please visit his website to see more of his work!
The images below are from his series Symbiosis
