Jury's Feedback

  • Judged by: Pierre Belhassen

    Pierre Belhassen is a French photographer working on long term projects exploring the relationship existing between cities. Pierre focuses on everyday life to recreate and reinvent reality, always looking at the street but more broadly the outside world as an open playground where he finds means of expression.

    Over the years Pierre has worked in New York, Marseille and Istanbul and his images have been printed and published by Leica’s M magazine, Epic Stories and LFI magazine among others.

    With years of experience capturing life’s most surprising, memorable, candid and spontaneous moments, we are delighted to have him as judge of the month.

"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!
