Jury's Feedback

  • Judged by: Maciek Jasik

    New York based Photographer Maciek Jasik does not only tests the limits of color and movement but also tries to find a steadiness between planning and spontaneity.

    His photography aims to reach a balance between aesthetic and emotional concerns with a powerful, yet subtle and unique use of color.

    Maciek explores the notion of identity, gender and the self while working in a parallel world of endless color and bewildering physical phenomena.

    With years of professional experience and his work published everywhere from New York Magazine to Bloomberg Businessweek we are absolutely delighted to have him with us as competition judge.

"In a portrait, I’m looking for the silence in somebody."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

Portrait photography has one of the oldest and most interesting histories that harkens back to the early days of the medium. Through portraits of iconic figures or ordinary people, we discover a deep interest in others.

Recent works or gems from your archives, classic or experimental, and through any kind of storytelling: we want to discover the most powerful and captivating images of today’s portrait photography. We are open to all interpretations and want to see faces that gaze right into the soul!
