1ST PRIZE: Sandra Morante
” I really like the painterly feeling of that image, and how those men are all doing their little dance, it reminds me of old Indian miniature painting… That pensive man on the left reinforces a feeling of quietness. The texture of the wall, subdued light, warm tones of the sand, good composition, this all add up to a strong shot.” – Matthieu Paley, National Geographic Photographer & Explorer
2ND PRIZE: Sujon Adhikary
“I am fond of train journeys… and this image if just really playful, well balanced and full of little details, like the woman on the newspaper, or larger ones, like that rainbow umbrella! Certainly, it makes me feel like hopping on that train and find out more about these people’s life.” – Matthieu Paley, National Geographic Photographer & Explorer
3RD PRIZE: Donell Gumiran
“Gumiran’s compelling, sepia-washed rendering, possesses a poetic, dream-like quality and resonates with a palpable vivacity that perfectly conveys the effervescent atmosphere of the scene, and thus evokes the unique joy and enchantment of travel.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
