Emma Sainsbury: Emma Sainsbury - no picture
The Cellar - Friday & Saturday
I've been interested in photography since I was eight, and I've loved live music my whole life, so it makes sense to combine them. Luckily there's a lot of new talent on the Oxford music scene, so there's always someone to take pictures of, and everyone loves free publicity!

I've been doing gig photography seriously for a couple of years, and my work has been used for local magazines, band websites, demo artworks, and venue promotion.

Kayleigh Thompson: Picture by Kayleigh Thompson
The Wheatsheaf - Saturday
I am currently studying photography in Manchester Metropolitan University, I'm originally from Banbury where I studied at Oxford and Cherwell College, I was encouraged and influenced by both my teachers and my peers to experiment and try something different. Eventually I was introduced to fashion photography and I haven't looked back since. Now fascinated with personal style and the female body I generally photograph women in a kitsch and glamorous way. This variety of images is a celebration of the female form and the power that lies in our sexuality; these women are captivating, enchanting and striking. All of these photographs are a tribute to my beautiful friends.

Lewis Saunders: Lewis Saunders
The Cellar - Saturday
Primarily my work explores the susceptibility of our emotions to Commercial Advertising's use of the female form as a tool, praying upon our innosence and creating sexual tension within us.

My work depicts aspects of my emotions, how I perceive myself and the >affect of current media on my life. By covertly combining my feelings and emotions with images of women in a suggestive and provocative manner I try >to create a visual sense of voyeurism and desire.

Merryn Williams: Merryn Williams
The Market (AKA City) Tavern
Saturday - 8.45pm - 9.15pm
I went to grammar school in Hastings in eleven-plus days, studied English at New Hall, Cambridge, and got a doctorate for my thesis on Thomas Hardy's novels. After that I taught adult students for the Open University and the W.E.A., living for several years near Cranfield University where my husband worked as a physicist. There was not much going on in the arts world, so I and some friends founded The Interpreter's House magazine to encourage creative writing in Bedfordshire. Now it's a national journal approaching its tenth birthday, and we have moved to Oxford. I am still the sole editor, and I also edit the newsletter of the Wilfred Owen ssociation, having a great interest in the poets of the First World War. I'm also very interested in the incurable disease myeloma and started a consciousness-raising poetry competition in 2004. I hope this will go on from year to year, as poets have been very kind and helpful.

The Whaetsheaf - Friday
The Cellar - Saturday
I refuse to 'specialise' my photography. Come fashion, travel, press, wildlife or fine art, I love it all and if I can see it in my imagination I will work with it. My ideas and subjects change quickly with my imagination and like most artists, will see an 'image' in everything I look at.
