Jury's Feedback

  • Black & white portrait of photographer Richard Kalvar

    Judged by: Richard Kalvar

    Born in 1944, Richard Kalvar is an American photographer who has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1977.

    Kalvar’s photographs frequently play on a discrepancy between the banality of a real situation and the uncanny feeling that is produced by a particular choice of timing and framing. In 1972 Richard Kalvar helped found the Viva agency and in 1975 he became an associate member of Magnum Photos, and a full member two years later. He has subsequently served as vice president and president.

    Richard Kalvar has done extensive work in America, Asia, Europe, and notably in France, Italy, England, and the United States. A major retrospective of his work was shown at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in 2007, accompanied by his book Earthlings.
