– Theme: Color Photography / Competition Judge: Maciek Jasik
The Color Photography Award aim to discover and bring exposure to the best contemporary artists working across all photographic fields.
On this occasion we invited photographers driven by their artistic eye and passion for color to join the competition and celebrate with us the beauty and diversity of color photography.
– First Prize: Alessandra D’Innella
“Navigating the space between still life photography and botanical illustration, this image combines a wonderful range of colors, tones and shapes. The flower looks both real and unreal. The mystery ties into our relationship to nature and modern life, a world beset by constant fabrications.” – Maciek Jasik
– Second Prize: Brooke Holm
“Every image takes us on a journey. Our initial response often changes or deepens over time. With this image, we are drawn in by the shapes and contours. We realize it’s a body of water, but it feels otherworldly. Could it be a miniature? Or a distant planet? The reality is irrelevant. But our fascination continues.” – Maciek Jasik
– Honorary Mention: Viachaslau Semeniuta
“In the early days, photography was only a black-and-white medium and it remained that way for almost one hundred years. But people wanted colors, because we see life in colors.
Today, color photography has come a long way and the creative possibilities for the artist are limitless – Photographs such are “Cold Shell” stands out as sublime evidences.”
– The Independent Photographer Editors
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!
