– Pierre Belhassen, Competition Judge:
“A wonderfully seized scene of life: the sensation of floating above the ground with young girls lifted by fabrics – evoking a cape – offers a magical and aerial moment.
I like the idea of this lightness, combined with the carelessness of childhood which gives much elegance and dynamism to this photograph.
The colors are distilled, between the greens and the yellows, and offer a beautiful harmony to the whole.
An excellent image, tender and poetic.”
Congratulations to all the talented photographers who made it to the final!
We’re thrilled to present the results of the Street Photography Competition Award
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
– The Theme: Street Photography
From candid and unexpected street situations to meticulous geometric scenes within the urban sphere – Whether the subject was your own urban environment or as you explored other territories and cultures: We were interested in the way YOU see the world.
