Jury's Feedback

  • © Ken Hermann

    Judge: Ken Hermann

    Based in Copenhagen, Ken Hermann is a Danish photographer working for a wide range of international clients as well as pursuing multiple personal projects.

    Specialized in portrait photography, Ken is passionate about individuals and their unique histories. His work aims to explore the fragile balance existing between people and their environment. His application of lighting, combining artificial with natural, takes the images into a surreal space, creating dreamlike visions of everyday people.

    Over years of professional experience Ken has photographed people all around the world, from the wrestlers of Inner Mongolia, the flower men of Kolkata to the street performers of downtown Los Angeles and the tribes of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley.

    Ken’s work has been published in numerous magazines and a retrospective of his work was recently exhibited at “La Quatrième Image” photography festival in Paris. His experience has lead him to win the prestigious Hasselblad Master Award in 2012.
