First Prize: Jatuporn Pateepaparnee
“I really enjoy this photograph. It is one of those images where we witness the ‘eureka’ moment in the photographer’s mind. Whether it was a scene the photographer anticipated, or reacted quickly to, it required an instinctive use of light, framing and timing.
The luminous orange gloves stick out and draw the eye precisely where it is meant to. It has rendered an entirely ordinary and mundane scene into something special. It requires no caption, and doesn’t rely on a larger series to validate it as an interesting image.” – Alan Schaller
Second Prize: Issaret Chalermsopone
“Humour is one of the hardest qualities to impart effectively in a photograph. The angle and perspective employed by the photographer emphasises the absurdity of the scene. I enjoy when photographs of animals convey as much about humans as photographs of people.” – Alan Schaller
Honorary Mention: Edas Wong
“Everything that is visible hides something that is invisible” – Renee Magritte
There is nothing as mysterious as an image with a secret. Here the composition offers a half reflected world under a cloudy and stormy weather. The soft colors of the coastal waters meet a dense urban environment where the figure of a single man stands alone above red ground, in the reflection of a glass window. A subtle and poetic urban scene with natural elements blending with the modern world.”– The Independent Photographer Editors
