Jury's Feedback

  • Judged by: Frédéric Lagrange

    Based in New York, French Photographer Frédéric Lagrange’s interest in photography was at first an excuse to travel, but soon grew into an obsessive passion.

    Frédéric has always had a strong innate curiosity about his surroundings and his natural ability at crossing cultural and language barriers has allowed him to immerse himself completely and document the life of the most secluded indigenous tribes and people around the world.

    Picking up through his lens as many subtle nuances as he can, Frédéric’s work process is mainly focused on capturing people in their natural environment and he has been the recipient of many photography awards over the years.

    Traveling through more than 100 countries – Frédéric has been documenting the world for the last fifteen years and his evocative color and black and white images have been featured everywhere from The New York Times magazine, Vanity Fair, to Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and The New Yorker.
