– Theme: Street Photography / Competition Judge: Richard Kalvar
The Street Photography Competition aims to celebrate and reward photographers being best at observing and recording life on the streets.
Whether the subject was your own urban environment or as you explored other territories and cultures: We were looking for those spontaneous and fleeting moments and it is our great pleasure to present the work of these incredibly talented artists!
1ST PRIZE: Maude Bardet
“A beautiful moment, with a complex structure. The photographer has succeeded in capturing a scene full of movement, with every element in place. The flow of men and animals creates a kind of dance. The dark background, aided by the shooting angle from below, makes the people stand out. And the photographer has managed to disappear, unnoticed by the participants.” —Richard Kalvar
2ND PRIZE: Mithail Afrige Chowdhury
“A simple image, where all the lines and the reduced depth of field bring the viewer’s eye to that of the subject, the most important place in the picture. We’re in a mysterious scene. Why is this partly hidden man looking at us like that, with anger, or fear, or curiosity? And is his head turned to the left or to the right?” — Richard Kalvar
3RD PRIZE: Francesco Gioia
“Gioia’s perfectly -timed, color-punctuated shot resonates with palpable atmosphere and embodies the forthright, spontaneous approach made famous by some of the genre’s most renowned practitioners, namely Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden and Tom wood.” – The Independent Photographer Editors
